Theodor S Klemming's curator insight, January 22, 2013 4:55 PM

An exhibition well worth visiting. Make sure you have a good 2 hours to spend - or more if you want to view all available videos. 

 

Among the more interesting objects on display are items confiscated from the Russian illegalists (spies) uncovered in 2010 (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444097904577537044185191340.html)

 

Also, examples of old-school lockpicking toolboxes and numerous varieties of hidden containers in everyday objects are fun to see close-up.

5 Stupidest Things Ever Done With Borders

5 Stupidest Things Ever Done With Borders | Intelligence Analysis | Scoop.it
Where you find a border, you usually find somebody pissed off about it.

 

Disclaimer: This article is more glib and crude in its language than I typically post.  However there is some great insight in this article about the curiosities that can occur on the borders that merits inclusion here.  Enclaves, walls, roads, glaciers, and tables all play prominent roles in these 5 quirky borders.

Ms. Harrington's comment, July 24, 2012 6:48 PM
Wow, I never knew border issues like this existed! Some are strange, but they live with the issue, like Canusa and the Netherlands/Belgium. Some are high tension, like Pakistan and India. I guess some of these issues are inevitable, the border has to go somewhere, and people over hundreds of years have moved outward.
Don Brown Jr's comment, July 25, 2012 7:09 PM
Although some of these boarders were established for security reasons, many more like the one along the American boarder seem to be constructed for more symbolic purposes as a physiological rather than a physical barrier.
Gregory S Sankey Jr.'s curator insight, December 4, 2013 3:24 PM

Within this article the author said it well, referencing that although these borders just seem silly and "stupid" to us, those who live within these boundaries must have an incredibly frustrating life. Having to hop three-four borders to get to the mainland of your country sounds completely crazy. I'm glad I live in Rhode Island.

World Blog - How assassin used ruse to kill Karzai brother

World Blog - How assassin used ruse to kill Karzai brother | Intelligence Analysis | Scoop.it

Ahmed Wali Karzai, brother of the Afghan President Hamid Karzai, is assassinated by a close security guard and member of the family. The Taliban claimed responsibility and the Pakistanis have reasons to rejoice.

"Tuesday morning, AWK was in a meeting in his home with Afghan elders. AWK held similar meetings almost every day. Afghan sources say that Mohammad entered the meeting. Mohammad said he had an urgent matter that he needed to discuss with AWK.
The implication was that it was a personal issue that couldn’t be discussed in front of the others in the room. Mohammad said he needed to talk to AWK for “just two minutes” and asked if AWK could excuse himself so they could talk. Very few people would have been able to walk into a meeting with AWK, interrupt it, and ask him to break away for a few minutes. Only a trusted few had that kind of clout. Mohammad was one of them.
Mohammad was also carrying a file in his hands. The assassin’s gun was apparently hidden in or behind the file. AWK excused himself from his meeting. The two men walked into a nearby room. Once inside, Mohammad pulled out his gun and shot AWK in the head and chest."

Related to government because the assassination will cause chaos in  the Afghan goernment  

Madison Blazing's comment, April 27, 2014 2:52 AM
This article provides insight into the secluded world of government officials and their personal lives. It is very unfortunate that someone the family trusted to protect their lives actually ended up killing the person he served as a security guard for during a lengthy period of time. Hopefully this betrayal will make people in authoritative positions in the government more careful and cautious but won't prevent them from focusing on the citizen they are elected to serve.
