A rust-colored steel column recovered amid the rubble of the World Trade Center after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks is a permanent memorial at CIA Headquarters.

The 9000 lb, 17’6” steel column was retrieved from World Trade Center Building Six, the shortest tower at the #WTC complex. It suffered secondary but catastrophic damage when the North Tower collapsed.

In 2011, New York City Port Authority (@PANYNJ) gave the WTC artifact to CIA.
The column was originally unveiled on the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11, when it was temporarily displayed inside our Original Headquarters Building, before being relocated this year to its permanent location outside.

As college students go #backtoschool & begin to think about how their education will translate into a career, we’d like to share the experience of a young officer, “Lynn,” who never thought her unique education & skill-set would be a fit for CIA.

A Day in the Life of a Publications Officer

Lynn: “Publications Officer is our fancy name for an editor. My job is to make sure our intelligence products are reflective of CIA style & branding guidelines, properly classified & sourced, & easily readable for non-experts.”
Lynn: “I’m a mid-career hire. I spent several years teaching English in a public school before joining the Agency. I was lucky to know someone who worked in the Intelligence Community & pointed me toward this path because I didn’t even know that CIA had editors!”

Let’s debunk some misconceptions people have about CIA & the women & men working here. We’re not gun-toting, globetrotting, martini-drinking spies so frequently portrayed on the silver screen. Instead, we're ordinary Americans, doing extraordinary things.

Myth: People who work for CIA are spies & agents.

Fact: US citizens who work for CIA are officers, not agents or spies. All employees, from operations to analysts, to librarians & public affairs, are considered CIA officers.
So, who is a CIA agent?

Our operations officers recruit well-placed human agents with access to secrets. These recruited spies are agents. Agents/spies are invaluable. They provide critical information about their country to help America.

Meet Our New Deputy Director:
bit.ly/2w5HzB3

Vaughn Bishop never imagined that one day he would be asked to serve as Deputy Director of CIA. “Then again,” says Bishop, “at no point in my career did I ever cease to be amazed at the opportunities offered at CIA.”
Bishop is thrilled to work with his colleague & friend, Director Haspel, again. Years ago, when DCIA was a senior operations officer, & Bishop a senior analyst, they worked together on difficult missions from opposite sides of the Agency directorate structure.
DCIA Haspel & DDCIA Bishop believe close collaboration & communication across directorates is critical to fulfilling the CIA’s mission. As Bishop likes to say: managing between the white spaces on the org chart, the spaces between the directorates, is a powerful force multiplier.

The CIA Speaker Series was established in 2014 to provide CIA officers with the opportunity to hear leadership insights from private industry and national security thought leaders.
During their visit to CIA, Coach Dungy & JB met with officers from CIA’s Talent Center to discuss opportunities & challenges related to diversity and inclusion, as well as how to dispel common misperceptions about CIA to potential candidates.
