Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
Chapter 1 Introduction
Exploration - a historical phenomenon. As craft, it is perhaps not the
oldest, but surely the second. The variety of views of various
historians on the social nature of intelligence and espionage combines
them into one - they all agree on the fact that the secret services are
at least 33 centuries. More precisely, they were born when the war
began. In any military conflict, whether primitive slaughter or the
Second World War, in varying degrees, of course, there is a tactical
ruse, calculated to deceive the enemy. But in order to deceive and
defeat the enemy, you need to know it. As a historical phenomenon,
intelligence and espionage, as well as the war in different times takes
different forms. Types and characters of scouts and spies change their
color depending on the social and political system which they serve.
History piled century in his piggy bank. In place of one of the
formations came others, and the time changed the very concept of the
secret service, and with it the essence of military and state secrets.
Transformed and society's attitude to those who devoted his life to a
dangerous profession. On the one hand, Noah, they were regarded as
heroes of the invisible front, on the other - as despicable mercenaries.
For centuries the word "intelligence" has been shrouded in reverence and
deep respect, and the word "spy" was uttered with contempt and disgust.
In the explanatory dictionary by Vladimir Dal: "Spy - the spy, spy,
hidden spy, and a carrier ... Spy - soglyadat, lazutnichat, pry, listen,
call that on the one hand, and send the opposite; serve as scout ... But
Vladimir Dahl admits that "spying in wartime is allowed ...

such an inscription: "Central Intelligence Agency, without which it can
not get the U.S. president, from someone who knows about this firsthand.
Each of my day begins with questions about events that occurred before
t events that occurred before
and during the night. Like my predecessors, I am compelled to seek
answers to these questions, referring primarily to the intelligence
community, since this is what prevents me and the entire nation on
emerging threats, said the most important trends in the situation in the
Then the President said: "The activities of intelligence is very
important. The end of the Cold War," enhances the security of the United

of the Berlin Wall is a monument to territory of the CIA. But this one,
an updated world is full of dangers and, judging by the many events, it
becomes even more complex and more difficult for a proper understanding
of the processes. The Administration has an acute need for more active
information on the development of ethnic conflicts, the growth of
militant nationalism, the threat terrorism and proliferation of all
weapons of mass destruction.
Accurate and reliable intelligence information is the key to
understanding each of these problems and without taking difficult
decisions verified on crises or long-term processes in the world. "
