If caught or killed the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your existance.

Cue Mission Impossible music.  Story from Gretchen Peters Correspondent of The Christian Science Monitor 
..three Americans accused of torturing Afghans in a private jail went on trial Wednesday insisting their counterterrorism mission had support from the Pentagon.

The US military has denied any ties to Jonathan K. Idema, who was arrested along with Brett Bennett and Edward Caraballo on July 5 when Afghan security forces raided the Kabul compound where they held eight prisoners.

Mr. Idema claimed he was working with the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, a relatively new position established by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld in the lead-up to the Iraq war. 

Maybe he just THOUGHT he was working for Rumsfeld!
