La CIA racconta su twitter la vera storia di Argo

Che ci crediate o no la CIA ha un profilo twitter. E non solo, ne fa un uso innovativo, persino scherzoso. A dimostrarlo è il primo, esilarante tweet:

Dei veri fuoriclasse.

La scorsa settimana, mentre tutti noi eravamo troppo distratti dalle elezioni di Midterm, che ci hanno confermato che Obama naviga in pessime acque, proprio nel giorno del voto ricorrevano i trentacinque anni dalla crisi degli ostaggi all'Ambasciata Usa a Teheran.
La storia è tornata prepotentemente agli onori della cronaca grazie al film "Argo", interpretato da Ben Affleck e vincitore di un Premio Oscar. Il film narra proprio le gesta dell'agente CIA che riuscì ad "esfiltrare" i sei ostaggi, grazie alla trovata di girare un film sullo stile di Guerre Stellari.

L'idea geniale della CIA è stata quella di usare twitter per fare un fact checking del film, svelando quali parti del film erano reali (real Argo) e quali erano una "licenza poetica" degli sceneggiatori (reel Argo, ossia "bobina").
Abbiamo raccolto tutti i ventitré tweet della CIA preceduti dall'hashtag #Argo.

Buon divertimento

 

  1. We love #Argo, @TheAcademy award winning film by @BenAffleck. Today we tell you what’s "reel" vs. "real". pic.twitter.com/QgFC014kUe
     
  2. Real #Argo: All involved in the operation were innovative, brave, & creative. Thank you @BenAffleck for making a film that reflects this.
     
  3. Reel #Argo: When the US Embassy is overtaken the 6 US diplomats go right to the Canadian ambassador's residence to live for the 3 months.
     
  4. Real #Argo: 5 of them went to many different places until they ended up at the homes of the Canadian Ambassador & the Dep. Chief of Mission.
     
  5. Real #Argo: 1 American slept on the floor of the Swedish embassy before making his way to the Canadian Ambassador’s home after 2 weeks.
  6. Reel #Argo: Only one CIA officer goes to Tehran to help exfiltrate the six American diplomats. pic.twitter.com/iFEcrBzlyb
     
  7. Real #Argo: Two CIA officers with notable forgery and exfiltration skills used their talents & knowledge to get the six out of Iran safely.
  8. Reel #Argo: The CIA officer and the six diplomats go into town to scout locations. pic.twitter.com/2gx2sHjPBO
     
  9. Real #Argo: They never went to the marketplace to scout a location. The six hid in the Canadian’s homes for 79 days. pic.twitter.com/szTgt9stvb
     
  10. Reel #Argo: The mission is called off the night before they are scheduled to depart. pic.twitter.com/j4h0at57Sq
     
  11. Real #Argo: Carter gave approval prior to the CIA team flying to Tehran, Iran. The details were approved by policymakers in Ottawa and DC.
     
  12. Real #Argo: The night before the exfiltration the team received final approval; last line in that approval: "See you later, exfiltrator."
     
  13. Reel #Argo: Airline tickets are not waiting at the counter and have to be rechecked before the tickets are authorized and confirmed.
     
  14. Real #Argo: The Canadians had already purchased the tickets for the Americans. There were no issues at the counter nor the checkpoints.
     
  15. Reel #Argo: The Americans are detained at the airport by security guards & a call is made back to “Studio Six” to verify their identity.
     
  16. Real #Argo: It didn’t happen. An early flight was picked so airline officials would be sleepy & Revolutionary Guards would still be in bed.
     
  17. Reel #Argo: Shredded documents are pieced together to reveal the face of one of the Americans & the plane is chased down the runway.
     
  18. Real #Argo: Skilled carpet weavers did reconstruct shredded documents, but they didn’t reveal one of the Americans at the last moment.
  19. Real #Argo: There was an hour long mechanical delay, other than that the escape could not have gone better. #nochase pic.twitter.com/a0TnVeBgBt
     
  20. Reel #Argo: The plane clears Iranian air space and the Americans cheer and celebrate.
     
  21. Real #Argo: That happened; there was even a round of celebratory Bloody Marys. #ThankYouCanada
  22. Real #ARGO: For the full firsthand account read:  http://1.usa.gov/1z4Et9C  pic.twitter.com/0JOYK4NalK
     
  23. Real #ARGO: An exciting movie that it kept us on the edge of our seats. Letting @BenAffleck film here? Best bad idea we've had. #ThanksBen!
