Tony Mendez is best known for the 1980 #Argo operation to free US hostages in Iran, but as head of CIA’s disguise branch, he was also the architect of an “experiment in deception & illusion” that became the foundation of an operational mindset known as “#MoscowRules.”

Via @WSJ
Tony arrived in Moscow in the late 1970s w/ “some unusual cargo: enough masks, wigs, dental facades, prosthetics, makeup palettes & made-to-measure costumes to put on a magic show. If the CIA wanted to operate freely in Moscow, its agents had to disappear.” Via @WSJ
“By learning to outfox the KGB, the [CIA’s] Moscow station not only connected with #TRIGON, it scored some the biggest espionage coups in American history.” Via @WSJ

This weekend we lost one of our most legendary Agency officers, Antonio “Tony” Mendez, the inspiration behind the Hollywood blockbuster #Argo.

In honor of his legacy, we are sharing this painting of Tony & the Argo mission from CIA’s Fine Art Collection.
The painting titled, “#ARGO: The Rescue of the Canadian Six” was painted by CIA DS&T officer, Deborah Dismuke.

Deborah was both the first female & the first Agency officer to have artwork displayed in CIA’s Intelligence Art Gallery.
Tony began his CIA career in 1965 & spent 25 years as a document counterfeiter & disguise maker.

During the Cold War, he painstakingly devised critical deception operations in places like SE Asia & the former Soviet Union.
