    Is it a spy agency like MI5? It has a military aspect to it, doesn't it?
    So how many people are in it? I realize that they don't come out and give information like that, but an estimate.
    Do they have all the kinds of weapons like the military does? Big stuff i mean.

    From what i've seen in shows over the years they seem to strike fear in a lot of americans.
    How does one end up working for them, or do they cherry pick individuals themselves?

    They run commercials on the radio encouraging people to apply for jobs with them. I know someone who applied with them. He applies (fills out their initial forms, with his resume) & hears nothing. He figures he didn't qualify, or whatever, & he forgets all about it. TWO YEARS later they call him for a job interview & he claimed they knew Everything about him. 'Things no one could possibly know they were bringing up in the interview. It blew his mind. He ended up getting the job & now he lives over-seas.

    Also they killed Kennedy.

    One of the C.I.A.'s favorite pastimes is to foment unrest in foreign countries, and they have been doing it for a very long time. Here is an example of declassified documents showing the C.I.A. fomented unrest in Iran that contributed to the 1953 coup.

    The independent National Security Archive research institute, which published the document Monday, says the declassification is believed to mark the CIA's first formal acknowledgment of its involvement.

    The documents, declassified in 2011 and given to George Washington University research group under the Freedom of Information Act, come from the CIA's internal history of Iran from the mid-1970s and paint a detailed picture of how the CIA worked to oust Mossadegh.

    The big Arab Spring thing that happened has C.I.A. written all over it. Of course, we will have to wait 40 years for declassified documents to prove it.

    Not much of a reply is it?
    I could of looked it up but this is a forum, where each day lots of people ask questions that could be answered by looking online.
    Plus i wanted to hear from Americans themselves, not read wikipedia or whatever. Various views on the subject too.

    Also i wanna get my post count up to a zillion.:icon_chee

    Who's to say they don't also implement military/social agendas within the US?

    They performed experiments on civilians in MKUltra, for example, which is now declassified (to the extend that anything is really declassified..)
