|Central Intelligence Agency|
The Central Intellegence Agency in 1947 with the signing of the National Security Act by President Harry S. Truman to serve as head of the United States intelligence community and act as the principal adviser to the President for intelligence matters related to the national security. To accomplish its mission, the CIA engages in research, development, and deployment of high-leverage technology for intelligence purposes. As a separate agency, CIA serves as an independent source of analysis on topics of concern and also works closely with the other organizations in the Intelligence Community to ensure that the intelligence consumer—whether Washington policymaker or battlefield commander—receives the best intelligence possible.
Goals & Interests

- Conducting covert action at the direction of the President to preempt threats or achieve US policy objectives.
- Service. We put Country first and Agency before self. Quiet patriotism is our hallmark. We are dedicated to the mission, and we pride ourselves on our extraordinary responsiveness to the needs of our customers.
- Integrity. We uphold the highest standards of conduct. We seek and speak the truth—to our colleagues and to our customers. We honor those Agency officers who have come before us and we honor the colleagues with whom we work today.

- Keith Washington
- Age: 38
Dry, sustained irritation, of the kind that is barely holding onto its patience. One of those people who has been old for the past thirty years and attained middle age at the age of 8. Snarky! And very little patience for youthful indiscretions. Mixed ethnicity, tall, smooth head, well-maintained goatee. Kind of hot. And his suits are probably less awesome and all of them are probably black because he does not care about fashion.
