I'm going to tell you a secret.
Wait...but, if you tell me the secret. It won't be a secret any more.
The Pentagon has announced plans to assemble an espionage network large enough to rival the CIA in size, according to reports.
As part of the project, US military officials would send hundreds of additional spies overseas, the Washington Post reported.
It would also see the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) overhauled, away from a primary focus on activities related to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
When the expansion is completed, the DIA could have as many as 1,600 intelligence "collectors" around the world - far more than its current overseas presence which numbers in the hundreds.
That total would include military attaches and others who will not work undercover, the newspaper wrote.
But US officials said the plans also include deployment of a new generation of clandestine operatives to be trained by the CIA.
