If you have "no place to go," come here!

More goons, please

Dear Lord:

Two of the Americans killed in Benghazi were members of the CIA’s Global Response Staff, an innocuously named organization that has recruited hundreds of former U.S. Special Forces operatives to serve as armed guards for the agency’s spies.
The GRS, as it is known, is designed to stay in the shadows, training teams to work undercover and provide an unobtrusive layer of security for CIA officers in high-risk outposts.

Armed guards for spies? Somehow I can't picture James Bond with some goon in mirror shadows following him about; or George Smiley.

Unless these "spies" aren't really spies, but drone operators, say. Or torturers.
