The distinction between secret societies, intelligence agencies or international groups may be slightly moot on occasions. Many are officially allowed to commit serious crimes such as murder, and are subject to minimal effective oversight anyway.

Intelligence agencies are also called "security services" although their modus operandi does not seem to focus on security of people as much as deep state groups.

Official Narrative

For reasons of "national security", nation states need "intelligence services" to gather secrets from other countries (or from individuals or groups inside their own host nation) while preventing other intelligence agencies from discovering such secrets. Members of these groups must not be publicly indentified as such and they should not constrained by laws that apply to other people. Since governments oversee their activies, the general public should does not need to have such oversight. As US President Barack Obama asserted in 2014: "Our intelligence professionals are patriots, and we are safer because of their heroic service and sacrifices."[1]

Problems

The justification for national intelligence agencies has a somewhat circular logic to it. In the climate of fear and suspicion generated by the cold war and the secrecy surrounding terrifying new weapons such as the nuclear bomb, the public were fairly easily persuaded need for the "services" they claim to provide. The 21st century "war on terror" is however failing to galvanise people in quite the same way. Whilst intelligence agencies have a long history of carrying out false flag attacks, awareness of this fact in the 20th century was limited. The widespread understanding of 9/11 as a plan devised by deep state insiders has perpetrated increasing questions to be asked about intelligence agencies. Many people are now asking what justification there can be for organisations that claim the right to break laws, and carry out murder, torture or mass surveillance amidst an "ends justifies the means" culture. In practice, many, perhaps most, intelligence agencies lack effective oversight, leading to concerns about their unaccountability and the seemingly ever increasing secrecy surrounding their operations.

“There is something very wrong indeed with the UK security services, which are most certainly not a force for freedom or justice. That MI6 can be headed by as extreme a figure as Dearlove, underlines the threat that the security services pose to any progressive movement in politics.”
Craig Murray (11 January 2019)  [2]


Token public oversight

A global effort was made [When?][1990s?] to establish at least a token system of oversight for intelligence agencies in countries including the UK and the USA. However, their continuing culture of secrecy means that such a project was unlikely (and probably never intended) to achieve more than a check on the very crassest abuses.[3] As the "war on terror" began to roll back civil liberties, undermine human rights and ramp up government secrecy, intelligence agencies have been rolling back secrecy again.[4] In March 2019, Donald Trump removed a requirement for US intelligence agencies to report on civilian casualties that occurred during their operations.[5]

Deep state control

The culture of secrecy, the large, often undisclosed, budgets of intelligence agencies, together with their freedom to operate outside the restrictions of national laws makes them ideal for carrying out deep events such as assassinations or false flag terror attacks. This has made them a core component of deep states, with probably no more than a token loyalty to the "national interest".

Activities

The "intelligence" (i.e. information gathering, nowadays in large part by mass surveillance) is one part of the activities of intelligence agencies. Another major strand is covert operations, including assassination, drug trafficking (most notably by the CIA) and associated money laundering, cyberterrorism (probably most notably by the NSA and the Mossad) and a spectrum of clandestine regime change" efforts.

Malcolm Muggeridge“In the eyes of posterity it will inevitably seem that, in safeguarding our freedom, we destroyed it. The vast clandestine apparatus we built up to prove our enemies' resources and intentions only served in the end to confuse our own purposes; that practice of deceiving others for the good of the state led infallibly to our deceiving ourselves; and that vast army of clandestine personnel built up to execute these purposes were soon caught up in the web of their own sick fantasies, with disastrous consequences for them and us.”Malcolm MuggeridgeMay 1966
