You know what they won't have paintings of: ALIENS!!!

Also (and more seriously), I wonder if they commemorate their support of the arts via covert funding.. like did someone paint a painting of Jackson Pollock painting?

"... important moments in the history of US intelligence?"

This is a very small gallery then?

The 7' water boarding tryptic will look fantastic above the fireplace.

They probably do, but you're not cleared to see them. Just sayin'. . . .


#6

Obama is looking at them right now, as is every former president, who gets an alien painting to put in their home, I'm sure.

Naturally, the facts (and I use that word lightly) of each of these missions is still locked away behind eyes-only classifications, but hey, here's a painting and a summary, so take your FOIA requests and shove 'em.

Through a strange twist of fate, the aliens are actually sentient oil paintings, and Thomas Kinkade was just a cover for their invasion.

DIA (defense intelligence agency) also has some nice paintings of soviet bombers, ekranoplans, etc. picked some of those up on ebay a few years ago.


#10

DIA sells stuff on ebay?


#11

Your tax dollars at work.


#12
