Dear Ones,

Here is a video on the topic: Did I work for the CIA? There is a Summary after the video …



Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

There is quite a countercurrent in the astral airs regarding the topic: Did I (Alice Clagett) work for the CIA? I have been noticing this nay-saying trend for some years now, ever since I wrote this blog …

Maybe it is just that women have a hard time asserting their authority in the world. For men, it seems it is a much easier grind, to assert a powerful presence in the community. Men might say: Double Oh Seven is a man, not a woman. A woman cannot work for the CIA. That might be their knee-jerk reaction … immediately to say: It’s impossible! A mere woman … how can that be?

Overall, for Secret Service jobs with the CIA, that might well be true. But there are many jobs in the CIA besides Secret Agent jobs, and many for which women such as I might be well qualified.

To work for the CIA in any capacity is a sign that a person is trustworthy, of high moral fiber, and an asset to their community. That is … as you may imagine … because of the extensive background research the Secret Service agencies undertake before hiring anyone. Everyone who works there needs to get clearance before they can be hired.

Here is something to consider: Many men and women are, it seems, falsely asserting authority in the world today. They might have a fake Ph.D., or a fake M.D. They might even claim to be CIA agents, or FBI agents.

Everyone might say: Wow, what a cool person! What a figure of authority in the community! But a close look at their credentials might reveal they are just a con artist, just a grifter out to get what they can from ‘patsies’ and ‘rubes’ by pretending to be more than they are.

Given all this … and even though I used to work for the CIA (and I also retired from a job as Scientific and Medical Editor at the University of California), and I hope it to be understood that I am a trustworthy person, of high moral fiber, and an asset to my community … it has been a hard uphill slog for people to believe this is so.

Like many women, I do not talk much about my achievements in life, and for many years my understanding was that no one ought to know about my CIA job. Then in recent years I found out that the outfit I worked for there, “United States Joint Publications Research Service,” had offered for sale online the publications on which I had worked as a Researcher.

It occurred to me one of my uncles … Frank Marbury Clagett … had worked at a similar job with the CIA, and that had been mentioned in his obituary. So then, I figure it is all right to let everyone know about my work there.

I have to say, my assertions have been met with astral incredulity, even though I put quite a fair amount of detail into the blog mentioned above. Today I was out early … to beat the heat … working in the backyard here in the San Fernando Valley, California. It occurred to me I might offer one other bit of proof to settle the issue.

While I was working for the CIA, I put together a “JPRS Handbook Revision — USSR Desk.” It was a style guide for editors. Here are the cover (with the odd sorts of book screws used in those days, many years ago), and the inside cover page of the manual …

Surely this ought to be proof positive that I am just as I say I am. If anyone has a question about this, it would, I feel, be better to ask me about it than to arrive at an erroneous, ‘snap’ judgment.

I hope this helps, in small part, to settle the troublesome issue of women such as I being deprived of the position of respect to which their careers entitle them. I hope the same for all people on Earth, that the truth of their trustworthiness and service to their communities be forthrightly set forth, and sincerely acknowledged.

In love, light and joy,
Alice B. Clagett
