PSYOPS OCTOPUS TSHIRT

Sale price Price £35.00 Regular price Unit price  per 

Tax included.

Mission patches are used by military and space organisations to identify, symbolise and describe a mission’s objectives and its crew. This tradition is also observed in the shady world of PSYOPS where each secret mission of the Pentagon gets its patch. These patches offer a rare glimpse into the Pentagon’s secret operations and the symbolism on them is rather striking: ominous and cryptic phrases, dark occult symbolism, references to secret societies, and sometimes even a rather dark sense of humour. 

This patch, for NROL-39, is perhaps the most famous of all the NRO's (National Reconnaissance Office) insignia logos. The world-devouring octopus underscored by the phrase, "Nothing Is Beyond Our Reach," caught the attention of the media as well as the public when the launch took place back in December 2013.

If the people are concerned about personal privacy, the NRO doesn't seem to mind spooking them. A recent Freedom of Information Act request revealed that someone in the NRO wrote that the patch was "a little sinister!!" when it was going through the review process, but that didn't stop the intelligence agency from using it.

Also available as a long sleeve in white. Don't tell anyone about the black version.
