Within the Directorate General of External Security (DGSE), a department called the Bureau of Legends (BDL) trains and remotely directs the “clandestines”, the most important agents of the French foreign intelligence services. Immersed in foreign countries, their mission is to identify individuals who could be recruited as intelligence sources. Operating in the shadows, “sous légende,” that is, under a fabricated identity, they live for many years in permanent concealment.
