Did you ever wonder how hard it must be to get fired from the United States CIA? Neither did Michael Weston. In fact, his day started off like most mornings, arriving at the CIA headquarters in Langley, VA, he wen through the customary 45.5 minute ritual to actually get into the guts of the organization. The eye retina scans, the hand print scans, the nose hair analysis. (Didn't know about that one did ya?) All was going just fine until the one thing that has been haunting him since childhood started to rear it's ugly head. Curiosity. He was just top damn curious for his own good and this time it got the best of him. This month...this day...this very morning was to be the last nose hair analysis Michael Weston would encounter because it was on this morning he decided he was going to look behind the forbidden door. It was a room in CIA headquarters that nobody except the director himself and the President of the United Stated was allowed to go into. That morning, instead of making a right into the coffee break room he made a left and just opened the door like it was his own office! As brazen and ballsy as that. Opened the door and walked right in! What greeted him was enough to make the most rigid of war torn Generals shake in their army boots. It was a room where former director George Bush Senior went to watch the children show the Wiggles. The room was wallpapered in rainbows and there was a cotton candy machine! It was scary to say the least and now Michael Weston was in on the secret. When Michael came to his senses he turned to run but standing there was a swat team with pointed guns. The agency had no choice but to let him go with the understanding that he could tell all the most secret of secrets that the CIA had to offer....in fact they even would sanction a tell all TV show about the CIA on the USA Network! Just so long as Michael kept his discovery to himself. Michael decided to so just that and that is how USA Network's Burn Notice came to be. It 's just as simple as that. To keep the integrity of the agency and our President's father, the agency sold out and agreed to a former agent to go on TV.
