Ari Cohen is an agent of the Eyes of Athena.

That oddly named group is a private organization founded by the fathers of [the United States] that has been around for more than two centuries. "We are the brainchild of Thomas Jefferson himself, who saw a need for a group to run outside the control of the government, politicians, even the President, to safeguard the true values, beliefs, safety and needs of the United States. Jefferson and the men he worked with had learned firsthand about the abuse of power that can come in the role of any 'ruler' while they were under the thumb of good old King George in England. So, shortly after the nation was born - almost before the ink was dry on the Declaration of Independence and the guns were put away from our hard-won fight for freedom - these men came together to form the Eyes of Athena."

It consisted of 13 representatives, one from each of the original colonies. "The secret is passed from representative to representative, and each President of the United States is made privy to some limited knowledge of our existence in case he ... or she ... ever needs to call on us."

The interesting aspect of this explanation is that it was told by the sitting Eye from Massachusetts to Cohen, a long term member of Israel's legendary spy organization Mossad. That 'Eye' told Cohen that they had agents from all over the world, recruiting only the very best, and they had studied Cohen for some time and he more than fit their requirement. Cohen, if he agreed, would not quit Mossad but would be on a long-term loan. Since the tasks that the Eyes of Athena would want him to do would also benefit Israel, Cohen agreed.

I was a bit perplexed about the whole needing to borrow an agent from Mossad to work for an American agency. But then the more I thought about it, the more my mind moved to the spookiness of the Eyes of Athena in the first place. Can anyone say 'cabal'?

It was around that time I shook my head and decided to just go with it. Hey, a really bad-ass Israeli agent is working with a really creepy US group to do good things. Okay, that I can handle and Cohen proves over and over that he can handle it as well - at least he has no problem with the Eyes part and the taking care of the enemy is, well, what he was doing already.
