* ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare2''. They only appear on one level but that level probably was enough.

* ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare2''. They only appear on one level but that level probably was enough. [[note]]To whit, this was the infamous No Russian mission where Private Allen was drafted from the Rangers, loaned to Task Force 141 and sent undercover to infiltrate Markarov's terrorist group.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

[[AC:Music]]
* The Music/WeirdAlYankovic song "Party in the C.I.A.", a parody of [[Music/MileyCyrus "Party in the U.S.A."]], featuring pretty much every CIA cliché in the book.

Although it says "The Agency" up top here, actual CIA employees (and those in the know) tend to call it "The Company;" calling it "The Agency" is acceptable, but calling it "The CIA" in anything except perhaps first reference is hitting a FandomBerserkButton. Other federal government types might call it the "[[UnusualEuphemism Other Government Agencies]]" (OGA), typically when its involvement in something or other is an [[OpenSecret open secret]]. In exceptionally double-cross-intensive stories you might see "The Company" ''and'' "The Agency" used to represent different factions of the CIA.

CIA. "Langley" is another informal name that shows up often, because the CIA is headquartered in Langley, Virginia, just a few miles west of [[UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC Washington, D.C.]].

After UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, the {{OSS}} was disbanded. With the onset of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, it was decided that a new intelligence agency was needed. The name "Central" reflects that it was originally supposed to be a clearinghouse among various other agencies. However, it became effectively a new OSS and acquired many veterans from that previous service. Originally the agency hired people from UsefulNotes/IvyLeague agencies with agents that had a ForeignCultureFetish for England. They dressed, talked, and acted like the English. In this period of desk gathering intelligence, the pipe-smoking professor was seen as the ideal agent.

* Rico in the ''JustCause'' series is a CIA operative who overthrows anti-American regimes. In the first game, he uses drug lords to help overthrow a Caribbean nation. In the second game, he enlists the help of DirtyCommunists, TheMafia, and a brutal ethnic gang to overthrow the local dictator of a South East Asian Island called Panau, which amusingly has a large reserve of oil.
