These three terms apply to many operations of a clandestine nature, as well as to the operators and creators of these same operations,especially on a 'global' basis,no doubt. Various 'exposures' and 'compromises' of all clandestine activities,whether political, military, scientific, etc. will happen and sometimes lead to drastic consequences at all levels. Various ways to establish 'cover' especially for an 'agent/operative' include various occupations that seem innocuous or commonplace,though a few more 'flamboyant' activities are sometimes involved. More on this another time.
