Description

For decades, police officers in the state of Washington have been able to obtain false driver licenses for undercover work. But this quasi-secret program inside the state Department of Licensing was never authorized by the legislature. Even the state's governor was unaware. Not only that. It turns out the biggest recipient of these licenses wasn't undercover police for the state of Washington. It was the CIA. Our coverage began with an initial feature on the program. But that lead to several spot news development and then longer features on the revelations that we uncovered.
