'Undercover lays naked the deceit, betrayal and cold-blooded violation practised many times through undercover cops - troubling, well timed and brilliantly executed.' Henry Porter
The gripping tales of a bunch of police spies - written via the award-winning investigative newshounds who uncovered the Mark Kennedy scandal - and the uncovering of 40 years of nation espionage.
This used to be an undercover operation so mystery that a few of our so much senior law enforcement officials had no thought it existed. The task of the clandestine unit was once to observe British 'subversives' - environmental activists, anti-racist teams, animal rights campaigners.
Police stole the identities of useless humans to create pretend passports, using licences and financial institution bills. They then went deep undercover for years, inventing entire new lives so they may possibly dwell incognito one of the humans they have been spying on.
They used intercourse, intimate relationships and medicine to construct their credibility. They betrayed neighbors, deceived enthusiasts, even fathered little ones. And their operations proceed today.
Undercover unearths the reality approximately mystery police operations - the emotional turmoil, the mental demanding situations and the human price of a life of deception - and asks no matter if such strategies can ever be justified.

I am troubled by what such indifference suggests about America’s priorities when we are quick to racially profile post–September 11 despite its inaccuracy, and yet are unwilling to eliminate the birthright citizenship distinction in the Presidential Eligibility Clause despite its inanity. In a sense, I am speaking out of self-interest as one of many naturalized citizens of color who would theoretically fit the prosubordination, essentialist stereotypes in both the terrorism and presidential eligibility contexts.
Citizenship oath in 1995. I took seriously the charge that I disavow allegiance to any foreign potentate. S. 42 Yet, somehow these reassurances do not rebut the presumption of my disloyalty to qualify me for the presidency. S. president, the question remains: why are most Americans willing to tolerate race and citizenship profiling in the contexts of battling terrorism and determining presidential eligibility, despite an acknowledgment by most that both are far from perfect proxies for loyalty?
My suspicion is that those who fancy themselves loyal believe that there is a group of readily identifiable “disloyalists” whose racial and citizenship characteristics are different from theirs. Hence, the Arab or Muslim naturalized citizen is more likely a terrorist and least likely qualified to be president of the United States than the average white Anglo-Saxon birthright citizen. ), and indeed, the danger of assuming that the terrorist is someone who belongs to one group overlooks the possibility that the terrorist could come from the so-called nonterrorist group.
