The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA for short)  is a civilian foreign intelligence service of the Federal government of the United States. It is tasked to gather, process and analyze national security information from around the world.

Unlike the FBI, the CIA does not have a law enforcement function, and is mainly used for the gathering of intelligence overseas. It has very limited access to domestic intelligence collection.
