via springheel_jack:

The director of the new agency, whose identity will remain secret and is simply known as "Jose", will report directly to the head of the CIA...

I for one welcome our anonymous, unnameable, ineffable, omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent new secret police overlords!

"Simply Jose" could be the next hit fragrance for men.

Also, could they have come up with a better code name?

What I don't get: Let's say you're a big important spy, so big and important that you get promoted to the next No Such Agency. Obviously you're a bit concerned about your safety or your previous cover or whatever so you need a bit of secrecy. What the heck makes you choose "José" over, say, "Daniel Winston" or "Hassan Singh" or even "José Lopez"? Something, you know, not obviously made up?

I say it's a month before his name's leaked to the press.
