Central Intelligence Agency
Ever wonder what the CIA actually does? Part of the federal intelligence community, the Central Intelligence Agency was created in 1947 to help the President and other lawmakers make informed decisions on matters of national security. The CIA produces several publications of interest to civilians, most notably the World Factbook. The site also hosts a Kids Secret Zone, the text of nonsecret speeches and testimony and press releases. Looking for a career change? Perhaps an assignment overseas?
