Did you know that the CIA had their own coloring book?

Yes, the CIA has their own coloring book. They have a kid’s section where you can download coloring books and color them.  The CIA is an independent US government agency that provides national security “intelligence” to key US leaders so they can make important, informed decisions. CIA employees gather intelligence (or information) in a variety of ways, not just by “spying” like you see in the movies or on TV (though they do some of that, too).

The CIA has started reaching out to kids to help them understand CIA’s role. When President Truman established the CIA with the National Security Act of 1947, there was no way that the unforeseen problems of today’s sole world power could have been anticipated. According to the Act of 1947 the CIA’s principal function was to be the correlation and evaluation of intelligence collected by other departments. But this is not the only mission of the CIA, it has also been blessed with the never-ending job of protecting American citizens, no matter where they may be located around the globe, through the timely dissemination of intelligence information. Although the CIA now has the problem of watching several nations rather than one great world power, the basic mission remains the same. The difference involving the direction of the CIA during the cold war and the function that the CIA plays now have changed somewhat, but these roles basically remain the same.
