The most high profile of the US intelligence agencies, a covert agent of foreign policy. Funded by a 'black budget' derived from the global drug trade, the CIA is experienced at assassination, blackmail, instigating coups and other such covert deep state actions. Its scrutiny in the early 1970s however lead to the development of more secure bases for the most sensitive deep state operations.

The CIA was created by US President Truman in 1947 by the National Security Act.

Official Narrative

The name of the CIA is indicative of its original brief - as a central point of information gathering. It was derived out of problems of information collection in WW2.


The CIA rapidly morphed into a covert agent of foreign policy, after engineering the overthrow of governments in Iran and Guatemala for the sake of the profits of US corporations. Lacking effective government oversight it became the basis for what Mark Gorton calls "The Cabal", using an assassination team to cement its power and silence opposition.[1] It has instigated dozens of covert regime change actions.


The first Director of Central Intelligence, Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter, authorised the CIA to carry out covert actions in Italy in 1947 to try to hinder the Italian communists in the elections that year. A year later another directive, NSC 10/2 authorised the CIA to carry out covert actions anywhere in the world, specifically including "propaganda; economic warfare; preventive direct action, including sabotage, anti-sabotage, demolition, and evacuation measures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance movements, guerrillas and refugee liberation groups, and support of indigenous anti-Communist elements in threatened countries of the free world." Hillenkoetter’s successor, Walter Bedell Smith, claimed that by 1951 the CIA covert ops had already "far exceeded" even this.[citation needed]

1970s Investigation

After some high profile assassinations during the 1960s, the CIA came under scrutiny from groups such as the House Select Committee on Assassinations and Church Committee in the early 1970s. This created a problem for the deep state, which consequently offshored its most sensitive operations to more secure bases such as the Safari Club. In 1976, George H W Bush made himself director and within a year was effective at stopping most of the leaks from the agency.[2][1]

2004 Restructuring

Following passage of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorist Prevention Act of 2004 the Director of Central Intelligence was replaced as head of the US Intelligence community by a Director of National Intelligence outside the CIA. [3] The real reasons for this are unclear.


Full article: CIA/Torture

The CIA has made extensive use of torture and continues to do so. The torture report by the US Senate released in December 2014 is the tip of the iceberg, but proves that after 9/11 the CIA engaged in a sophisticated program of calculated, aggressive, and egregious state-sanctioned torture, tried to cover this up and lied about how the program operated and the utility of the information obtained.

Agents' worldview

Robin Ramsay remarks about Plame Wilson's autobiography, Fair Game that two things struck him: "the first is the absolute political innocence of even comparatively senior CIA officers like Plame Wilson – about the reality of US foreign policy she has no idea. The second was her comment that within the CIA most of the officers had their TVs tuned to Murdoch’s Fox channel – self-programming, their equivalent of praying five times a day to Mecca."[4]
