The Central Intelligence Agency is an American security organization that through various means, including espionage and clandestine operations  gathers information and intelligence for use by various US federal departments, including senate policymakers, department of defense, and law enforcement groups such as the FBI. By the timeframe of Appleseed, the CIA has become the sole security force of the seceded Imperial American Empire in the southeast, while the FBI merges with the KGB to provide a counterpart in the democratic US remainder to the northwest, the Russo-American Alliance.
Notes and ReferencesEdit
- As noted in Appleseed ID, Briareos Hecatonchires was at one time an agent of the KGB, though it's unclear whether this was before or after the merger with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
- The CIA and FBI appear to be stalemates in a Balkanized North America, an exaggerated state of affairs similar to today's bureaucratic stresses between the two organizations.
