BLACK OPS INSIGNIA



Written by Robert Foster

In a project that combines ingenious journalism and encoded art, author/photographer/investigator Trevor Paglen uncovers never-before-seen-in-public military patches that reveal a bizarre secret world of the American military.

In his book I Could Tell You But Then You Would Have to be Destroyed by Me: Emblems from the Pentagon's Black World, Paglen investigates classified weapons projects and intelligence operations by examining their own imagery and jargon, disclosing new facts about important classified military units—here known by peculiar names (“Goat Suckers,” “None of Your Fucking Business,” “Tastes Like Chicken”) and illustrated with occult symbols and ridiculous cartoons.

The precisely photographed patches—worn by military personnel working on classified missions, such as those at the legendary Area 51—reveal much about a strange and eerie world about which little was previously known.
