Mr. Moto, international man of mystery, has been spotted at a theater. In the video clip hopefully viewable above, Mr. Moto is the man wearing eyeglasses and a white suit.
Besides Mr. Moto, other spies are present: a man wearing a fez hat, and a seedy-looking bearded man in a white suit.
The ventriloquist onstage, performing his act, is also a spy. He does a “news” faker operation, under guise of ventriloquism: The dummy is the newsfaker, and the ventriloquist controls the dummy. Through the dummy, a message about “Maltese cross” and “book of matches” is sent to the spies.
The spies cannot simply be handed the secret message because they themselves are under constant surveillance. So a “cutout” – the newsfaker dummy – indirectly delivers the message.
A different man wearing a fez hat, this time a fat one (image), was seen in Syria. He was spotted in earnest conversation with Mr. Moto at an outdoor café in Damascus. (Background: Mr. Moto Seen in Syria, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, January 26, 2012.)
The word on the street is, “Where Moto goes, trouble follows.” This was seen by Ersjdamoo as not a good sign for the situation in Syria, when he reported back in January 2012. If Mr. Moto was in Syria, then all hell was about to break loose. 
And sure enough, according to the usual pattern, trouble, in the form of a civil war, erupted in Syria subsequent to the presence there of Mr. Moto.
Hillary Clinton, when she was U.S. Secretary of State, had daydreamed about having the Arabs all sitting around the campfire and singing Kumbaya. This daydream had become implemented as “Arab Spring.” (Background: Hillary Clinton Causes Armageddon, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, October 2, 2015.)
The Kumbaya implementation seemed to be working at first, in places like Egypt and Libya. The natives began learning the Kumbaya lyrics. But then the sing-along fell apart in Egypt, and in Libya it turned into something disastrous – so disastrous that the natives began taking their Kumbaya sheet music and fleeing to Europe.
Bashar Assad, president of Syria, a practical man who is an eye doctor, had misgivings about the whole Kumbaya sing-along. And so he declined the invitation of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when she tried to convince him that a “Woodstock Nation” festival was just what the doctor ordered for Syria.
TIMELINE: January 2012: Mr. Moto seen in Syria. Late January/early February 2012: Assad declines Kumbaya sing-along. Also around this same time, Hillary Clinton declares that Bashar Assad and his government would be “gone” in three months. 
We can reconstruct the probable events:
HILLARY: (On telephone) Bashar, dear, how’s about that sing-along?
BASHAR: I am sorry, Hillary, but after Libya I don’t think it’s a good idea.
HILLARY: Are you saying “no” to me, the U.S. Secretary of State!?
BASHAR: Now calm down, Hillary. Maybe we can do it next year.
HILLARY: (Slams down the telephone and begins throwing plates at husband Bill.) You worthless slime! I’d like to wring your neck!
A secret message was sent to operative Mr. Moto in Damascus. “From Hillary: Activate Plan B.” It was then that “dissidents” began appearing, seeking the overthrow of the Assad government in Syria. A similar situation had been faced by Abraham Lincoln after Britain and France stirred up passions between the North and South in the United States. Britain and France had a secret plan: Divide and conquer.
As in the American Civil War of 1861 through 1865, people on both sides began to be killed in Syria. By June 2012 things were looking tragic for what had originally been anticipated to be a Hillary Clinton sing-along. On June 8, 2012, fierce fighting erupted in Damascus between “Free Syrian Army” forces and Assad loyalists.  By that time, Mr. Moto had departed from Syria. He would soon enough be spotted though in other international locations, about to become “hot spots” on the world stage.
(Portions of the above are allegorical. For example, “Mr. Moto” signifies the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).)
