    yeah.. I don't believe her when she said "3 banned covers". CIA did a fake vaccine drive in Pakistan when they're trying to kill bin laden. It's not one of the covers she mentioned it feels like they'd have no problem doing those 3 if they can pose as doctors.

    What about the 'disguise' in Miss Congeniality 1 & 2? I wonder if it happened to real life agents too.
