The story was picked up by conspiracy theory aficionados InfoWars, among a host of other sites. But as Snopes points out, the image used at the top of the World News Daily Report story doesn’t show a CIA agent by the name of Normand Hodges. The photo actually comes from a 2014 article in The Guardian about ill prisoners.
Consider this your daily reminder that basically everything on the internet is fake until proven otherwise.
