US Central Intelligence Agency Seal

The Central Intelligence Agency is an information-gathering agency attached to the United States federal government. It is represented on the National Security Council by the Director of Central Intelligence, later renamed the Director of National Intelligence.


In the years following the September 11th attacks, the CIA, led by Director Adam Benford,[1] took an active part in the War on Terror and for many years sent out CIA agents to Afghanistan, Iraq and Yemen to aide in the hunting of al-Qaeda leaders in the Middle East and South Asia.[2]

In 2011, a CIA agent code-named "Scarecrow" uncovered information regarding the rebels in the Eastern Slav Republic, reporting to his contact, Leon S. Kennedy, the word "beekeeper", before being mauled to death by a Licker. The single word was used to solve a number of puzzles regarding the civil war - the rebels were using honey trucks (displaying bees) for transporting bees, and Svetlana Belikova's hidden laboratory was built like a beehive. The CIA also received reports that a woman calling herself Ada Wong was involved in the civil war, posing as a representative for the BSAA, who soon after classified the event.[3][4]

In 2012, Derek C. Simmons had CIA agent Helena Harper - known for her numerous infractions - transferred to the Secret Service, as part of his plan to create a hole in President Benford's protection.[5] Around this year, the CIA ordered a drone strike to assassinate one of its own spies, Glenn Arias, who was found to be supplying Bio Organic Weapons to a Syrian rebel group early in the Syrian Civil War.[6]
