    Whether official or unofficial, it's interesting to note that the motto of the CIA, engraved on the floor of the lobby at Langley, is John 8:32: "...Ye shall know the truth and it shall set you free."

    Mormons use scripture to as do arminians doesnt make the CIA godly or christian by any means.

    I always figured the intelligence establishment should use some cryptic gnostic lingo instead of that verse. The NSA's unofficial tongue-in-cheek mantra is: "In God we trust, in all others we monitor."

    Nobody ever uses the full quote.
    Joh 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
    Joh 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    I hardly think the CIA are continuing in His Word.:D
