The photo on the wall that everyone is asking who he is, well I think it is Walter Disney!

Did you notice, in that photo with the Walgreens ad on the TV, it shows another image of the screen in the mirror reflection?
Just noticed it then. That is really strange. I wonder what it is? Now that is a bit spooky
"Gottlieb did not limit his interest to drugs. He and other TSS officials wanted to try out surveillance equipment. CIA technicians quickly installed see-through mirrors and microphones through which eavesdroppers could film, photograph, and record the action. "Things go wrong with listening devices and two-way mirrors, so you build these things to find out what works and what doesn't," says a TSS source. "If you are going to entrap, you've got to give the guy pictures [flagrante delicto] and voice recordings. Once you learn how to do it so that the whole thing looks comfortable, cozy, and safe, then you can transport the technology overseas and use it. "This TSS man notes that the Agency put to work in the bedrooms of Europe some of the techniques developed in the George White safe-house operation."
"In the best tradition of Mata Hari, the CIA did use sex as a clandestine weapon, although apparently not so frequently as the Russians. While many in the Agency believed that it simply did not work very well, others like CIA operators in Berlin during the mid-1960s felt prostitutes could be a prime source of intelligence. Agency men in that city used a network of hookers to good advantage—or so they told visitors from headquarters. Yet, with its high proportion of Catholics and Mormons— not to mention the Protestant ethic of many of its top leaders—the Agency definitely had limits beyond which prudery took over. For instance, a TSS veteran says that a good number of case officers wanted no part of homosexual entrapment operations. And to go a step further, he recalls one senior KGB man who told too many sexual jokes about young boys.
"The CIA kept hotel rooms in two of the best hotels in New Orleans, and year around, they kept a suite. It was unique in that it had two bedrooms and one bedroom was where they kept the hidden cameras and I was actually shown the hidden cameras by three men who handled that part of it. They called him Captain George White - he was formerly a doctor. He used to be in the narcotics squad in California and then he became a doctor, and joined the CIA. And then there were two other men who worked with him. They would put me with the subjects who would be filmed (the men) and then when the men would come into town -- I am talking about local politicians, government officials -- anybody who they needed to possibly get something on, keep on file for future reference -- should they need to coerce this person into supporting the projects.

Where did I say it just occurred to me?
I said I was reading about another nefarious topic when a paragraph REMINDED me of the room.
Did you not read all the flack I got when commenting to someone else's comment about prostitution?
Did you not see all the comments about this being a NORMAL hotel room?
Well, I finally posted evidence that the CIA does use hotel rooms scattered about the US for blackmail purposes and all you can offer is a brainless comment poking fun at me?
*Everyone always wants proof about what is being speculated, then when you offer proof, you get some smarty pants who can't even make an intelligent comment about the proof and instead takes it as an opportunity to make fun of you. ATS used to have appreciative members who used to build upon the proof provided. What a shame it's become what it is now.
Nah, just a redditor trolling.

Did no one notice the last image in the Imgur page that shows a conversation between a hotel employee and the guy who rented the room. There is a 1000 dollar bribe recorded right there. Does no one else think this is odd? They are clearly offering to pay this guy for not talking about this.
