Certified Idiots of America (Central Intelligence Agency or CIA nickname)

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is the successor to World War II’s Office of Strategic Services (OSS). The CIA nickname of “Certified Idiots of America” has been cited in print since at least 1996 and has been printed on shirts.

The CIA has also been nicknamed “Christians In Action,” “Crooks In Action,” “Cocaine Importing Agency,” “Capitalism’s International Army,” “Capitalism’s Invisible Army” (by R. Buckminster Fuller in 1981), “Virginia Farm Boys” (after its headquarters in Langley, Virginia), “The Agency,” “The Company” (since at least 1972) and “Pickle Factory” (since at least 1965).


Wikipedia: Central Intelligence Agency
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is an independent civilian intelligence agency of the United States government. It is an executive agency and reports directly to the Director of National Intelligence, with responsibility for providing national security intelligence assessment to senior United States policymakers. Intelligence-gathering is performed by non-military commissioned civilian intelligence agents, many of whom are trained to avoid tactical situations. The CIA also oversees and sometimes engages in tactical and covert activities at the request of the President of the United States. Often, when such field operations are organized, the U.S. military or other warfare tacticians carry these tactical operations out on behalf of the agency while the CIA oversees them. Although intelligence-gathering is the agency’s main agenda, tactical divisions were established in the agency to carry out emergency field operations that require immediate suppression or dismantling of a threat or weapon. The CIA’s headquarters is located in Langley, McLean, Fairfax County, Virginia, a few miles west of Washington, D.C..

The CIA succeeded the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), formed during World War II to coordinate espionage activities against the Axis Powers for the branches of the United States Armed Forces. The National Security Act of 1947 established the CIA, affording it “no police or law enforcement functions, either at home or abroad.”
