I have just watched "The Bourne Identity" and I was woundering, do the goverments really work like as portrayed in the film? ie will they kill one of there own "Secter Agents" if something goes wrong, without asking why it had gone wrong?

ofcourse. Secret Agents are held under close observation as they are so close to the enemy, if they defect they could devulge the governments secrets, so Secret Agents are like the governments toilet paper.

Governments kill their public agents. Secret agents I imagine have even more to fear of being killed by their superiors.

Where are you socialists?

I thought the greater good was more important than any one individual?

Who do you think is giving the
to off the agents? Or better yet, to off 1000s of civilians, in "terrorist attacks?"

Here's a story that you may find interesting. Sorry I can't corroborate it with anything, it was related to me by a friend (no not the kind that makes BS up and is some sort of pathological liar (you know the kind)).

His uncle (I think that's who he said) worked for a secret service or special law enforcement group, although I can't remember if it was a branch of a US group or Canadian. Anyway, he said that his uncle told him an undetailed story of an American agent who was considered a risk to the cohesion of a particular department after many years of service. He was basically taken up in a helicopter and pushed out to his death (hey, I didn't promise it would be a long story).

I know it seems difficult to use as concrete evidence, and yet I will swear to whoever that reads this that the guy telling me the story was not BSing me, and he said that he regrets not ever asking his uncle for more stories of the type and taking a bigger interest in his career (his uncle died not long ago). His work in this field apparently over time turned him into a distant, cynical sort of individual, and hard to relate to.

By the way, what's all the talk about socialists? Whether this happens or not has little to do with the official doctrine of the state or the scruples of the public at large; it is individuals or small groups, working within the secret services, who make these decisions, probably feeling vindicated by the need to protect their country (whether that need is real or imagined is a separate matter).

ya they would!
On a side note, I just watched the movie based on the auto-biographie of Chuck Barris, creator of the gong show, and "suposed" hired assassin for the CIA.
It was a goog and interesting movie.
