Spying is such a hard life

For no other reason than I found it amusing:
The Czech Republic's spy chief is set to appear at a public ceremony on Monday disguised beneath long hair and a beard to conceal his true appearance so he can keep working in undercover operations.
The Dnes newspaper says Colonel Karel Randak has decided to let his hair grow out so he will remain unrecognisable even during a televised ceremony at Prague Castle, in which President Vaclav Klaus will promote him to general.
Col Randak is quoted as saying, "I would have preferred to have remained a colonel".
The newspaper says Col Randak is understood to have personally taken part in undercover operations against arms and drugs traffickers and has access to confidential CIA data.
