You know, I'm willing to bet that "Rebecca" isn't even actually a girl ... that the CIA gave a male operative a female name as a way of further concealing his identity.
 
2012-05-04 02:24:51 PM  
Of course, the CIA might simply assume that people would guess they'd automatically give a man a woman's name in order to add an extra layer of subterfuge, and so they *might* have deliberately chosen to not do that instead ... which would mean Rebecca is, in fact, a woman (not a man as many would suppose).
 
2012-05-04 02:25:53 PM  
Unless they were assuming that someone would make THAT assumption as well. In which case we must assume that Rebecca is, in fact, a man.
 
2012-05-04 02:27:45 PM  
Perhaps the duplicity goes even further, though. What if, for example, the agent was actually a woman ... what are the chances that her name is ACTUALLY Rebecca? That would be the ultimate psyche-out...everybody is expecting a false gender and a false name, and then, WHAMMO, the CIA releases her ACTUAL gender and ACTUAL name KNOWING that we'd never assume they'd actually do that.

You've made your decision then?

Your logic is truly dizzying.

I've got you highlighted in green, so if you're coming to the point, you'd better hurry before I get sea sick.

This domestic arrangement was a source of genuine solace for bin Laden, Bergen reports. So much so that he allegedly used to joke to his friends: "I don't understand why people take only one wife. If you take four wives you live like a groom." Bergen writes that this is the only recorded joke bin Laden ever made.

I think Obama should be impeached for not ordering the SEALS to force bin Laden to tell some of his favorite jokes before they killed him. What a wasted opportunity, Obama.

Wait a minute...WAIT A MINUTE. The agent's name is Rebecca. And this is a BLACK op ordered by a BLACK president. Rebecca's black op....Rebecca Black...And bin Laden was killed on a Sunday, and look, right here:

Today i-is Friday, Friday (Partyin')
We-we-we so excited
We so excited
We gonna have a ball today

Tomorrow is Saturday
And Sunday comes after ... wards
I don't want this weekend to end


It's all right there! HA, I cracked your code, CIA.

Now we know why it took so long to get him... because she only had the anger and batshiat craziness to work on the plan for 4 days out of the month.

Well, that's how they broke the ENIGMA code at Bletchley Park. The ENIGMA machine couldn't replace a letter with the same letter, so the decoders knew that if they saw an E, the real letter would not be an E. this really helped them reduce the number of permutations possible.

Any analyst would have written that memo. Rebecca needs to stop politicizing the death of bin Laden. It's insulting to the troops.

A burqaless, unbeaten female was responsible for the plan to take down Bin laden. OOOOOOO! I bet that's gonna drive Al Qaeda up the wall when they hear about that.

Rebecca is the code name for the algorithm. It was originally developed by al gore during his darpa the exploder days.
 
2012-05-04 05:54:23 PM  
Whatever Rebecca's true name and gender, TFA refers to her as an analyst and not an agent.

Our CIA field personnel are officers. They recruit foreign nationals as agents.

Personally, I'm betting that the choice of a Female name was just meant to be extra insulting to the rest of Al Qaeda - since they hold women in such high regard, and all.

As in "You know what, your guy basically got killed by A GIRL! Ha ha!"
