More like Julia Spy-ld

So prodding through cnn.com today I found an article about how Julia Child was a spy (on America’s side) during WWII. Just when you think you know everything about a nice lady who taught America how to cook well, new information pops out that totally blows your mind:

The full secret comes out Thursday, all of the names and previously classified files identifying nearly 24,000 spies who formed the first centralized intelligence effort by the United States. The National Archives, which this week released a list of the names found in the records, will make available for the first time all 750,000 pages identifying the vast spy network of military and civilian operatives.

So, from this we learn that not only was Julia Child a spy, but also some other famous names, perhaps more in food? Who knows. Until we find out today, that is.
