See the CIA’s china (dishes, not the country)

Yes, the CIA is knowledgeable about more than one China.

Featured on the CIA’s online museum collection, the CIA reveals that it’s had its own china collection. The plates, cups, and other dishes were specially emblazoned with an Air America logo.

What was Air America? During the Vietnam War, the CIA ran its own airline for everything from covert missions to straight up transportation. These dishes were used in the mess hall and, possibly, on flights.
