George Washington - One Evil


In the early stages of its existence, the National Counterintelligence Center, now known as the Office of the National Counterintelligence Executive (ONCIX), produced its first security and counterintelligence awareness security poster, featuring the pictures of seven convicted spies and a quote from George Washington. In the ensuing years, the number of convicted spies has increased, notwithstanding Washington's admonition that "There is one evil I dread, and that is, their spies. I could wish, therefore, the most attentive watch be kept..." With this in mind, the ONCIX has updated and reissued the poster. Combined with the "One Evil," the new poster identifies a number of convicted spies in the post-Aldrich Ames era, including the recent arrest photo of Ana Belen Montes, the Defense Intelligence Agency employee who is the most senior spy for Cuba ever caught.
