There is a spy among us. He walks with us, he talks with us, he teaches us, and yet we have never realized who this person really is.
Timothy Calver, which in fact is just an alias, goes by his code name “Bald Eagle” on the job.
Calver was recruited into MI6 at the age of 15 when he lived in Oxfordshire, a county in homeland England. His first mission, go to America and infiltrate the public school system in order to recruit students for top secret missions back in England.
Although it took many years, a few which were spent getting a Masters at Washington State University in order to strengthen his new identity, Calver became a teacher at MC in 1999, and his operation was fully-underway.
The plan was simple. He was to become a fun teacher, who never gives students a reason to suspect anything. The more they like him, the better. “Bald Eagle” will update MI6 weekly with new promising candidates.
And once a student shows the necessary skills and actions Calver is looking for, he will pull them aside and give them a play by play.
But the cherry on top is the undercover spy training, which operates under the guise of “convention”, a multi-day trip that supposedly is to enhance journalistic skills. Calver takes students on this trip at least once a year. But really, he is introducing new prospects to the art of surveillance.
The reason convention is held in a new city each year is to keep the CIA off the trail of this secret training. Ever since the scandal of 86, CIA and MI6 have had an uneasy relationship with each other. Calver, or “Bald Eagle” teaches these students personally along with another unnamed operative.
Now that his secret is out, we got Calver to sit down in an interview.
“The M16 found me the same way I have been finding these students,” Calver said. “My childhood teacher Mr. David Stangard, recruited me, just as I have been.”
Now that Calver is discovered, he is unsure about his next plan of action.
“The CIA is most likely after me, but I cannot return home because then the M16 will be after me,” Calver said. “My only option is to come forward.”
With that said, MC is still undergoing discussion about whether to harbor Calver, or give him to the CIA.
