A former CIA agent has revealed how she carried her newborn baby with her during undercover missions to stop al Qaeda from getting hold of a nuclear weapon.

Amaryllis Fox gave birth to her daughter Zoe while based in Shanghai, China where she was posing as an art dealer on assignment for the intelligence service.

The 38-year-old was so committed to her job that she put the child in a sling while meeting with arms dealers turned informants.

Fox took evasive routes to shake off a person who was trailing her, while her baby was strapped to her chest, she writes in her upcoming memoir, Life Undercover: Coming of Age in the CIA.

The former spy took notes during secret meetings in cars while her newborn slept, then stuffed the notes into secret compartments in her jacket, which were already filled with diapers.

She even persuaded an al Qaeda leader to call off a bombing in Pakistan, which would have killed scores of civilians, by bonding over medication for his baby's asthma.

Unless forced into it by being in an occupied nation I find this behavior reprehensible. For shame.

Thanks RummyChick. Y'know, I don't buy most of her story. Sounds like a giant crock.

Then she was able to have a career AND a baby! If it weren’t for that baby problem, feminists would be shouting her praises. Didn’t she know an abortion was the way to go? She’s lucky her baby wasn’t taken and smashed against the nearest wall...or worse. But at least she got to have a career! Idiot!

Why should I believe any of this?

This sounds like a CIA image restoration op to show how much they care about an employee with a baby.

Is this going to be the first of many articles to show us how dedicated CIA agents are? Could this have anything g to do with what is about to be exposed about the sedition type behaviors of some at the CIA?

In my opinion, any Groom dressed like that doesn’t seem to be serious about what’s happening in the ceremony.
He was probably high as a kite during that moment.

She has a book to sell. I think her husband is in the film biz. I bet they want to try to sell a film

So now I’m getting the warm and fuzzies about the CIA....haha just kidding.

The CIA is the enemy of the citizens of this country.

National security uber alles!.... what a joke, when I hear this.

I thought ex-CIA or FBI agents were bound to some level of silence about our tactics. I find it disturbing to say the least, that she’s blabbing about it all just to sell a book.
This is very helpful to other countries, like China or Russia.

Is this a feel-good story to generate sympathy for the CIA so we will forget that they’ve been committing treason against the office of the president?

“Sounds like a giant crock.”

Sounds like a story Elizabeth Warren would come up with.
