THERE'S MORE THAN THE CIA AND FBI: THE 17 AGENCIES THAT MAKE UP THE U.S. INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY
The U.S. intelligence community recently reaffirmed its conclusion that senior officials in Russia were behind hacks during the 2016 presidential campaign into the Democratic National Committee and emails belonging to associates of Hillary Clinton.
But what exactly is the "intelligence community?" It's not just an amorphous term for all U.S. intelligence officials. It's a veritable alphabet soup of 17 agencies and offices. The group includes agencies strictly focused on intelligence as well as the intelligence arms of other government agencies and of the military. Its total budget in 2015 was $66.8 billion.
Here are the 17 offices:
1. Office of the Director of National Intelligence
Created by Congress in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the office coordinates intelligence collection and sharing among U.S. intelligence agencies. The director is the head of the intelligence community and the principal advisor to the president, National Security Council and Homeland Security Council on intelligence matters related to national security.
2. Central Intelligence Agency
The CIA is the most recognized intelligence agency, known for spying on foreign governments and conducting covert operations, including funneling money to opposition groups in other countries to sway elections or oust certain foreign leaders.
3. National Security Agency
Once so secret it was referred to as "No Such Agency," the NSA is the largest and perhaps most technologically sophisticated of all the intelligence agencies. It focuses on signals intelligence — monitoring, collecting and processing communications and other electronic information — and cracking secret codes. It also protects U.S. information systems from outside penetration. The NSA oversees PRISM and other mass surveillance programs revealed by Edward Snowden in 2013. It is believed to employ more mathematicians than any other organization in the country — a fact not all math whizzes are happy about.
4. Defense Intelligence Agency
The Pentagon's top spy agency, the DIA is the primary entity responsible for collecting and analyzing intelligence on foreign militaries, with support from the intelligence offices of all the military branches. The DIA shares this information with military leaders, fighters and defense policy makers in order to "prevent and decisively win wars," according to its mission statement.
5. Federal Bureau of Investigation
The FBI has both law enforcement and intelligence functions. On the intelligence side, it aims to protect the U.S. against terrorism, cyberattacks and foreign intelligence operations and espionage. It maintains the government's terrorist watch list and has been involved in the interrogation of "high-value" detainees, sometimes clashing with the CIA.
6. Department of State – Bureau of Intelligence and Research
This bureau collects and analyzes intelligence on global affairs and advises the secretary of State and other diplomats. It conducts foreign opinion polls and tracks and analyzes issues that may undermine U.S. foreign policy objectives, such as weapons proliferation, human trafficking and drug smuggling. Though it's one of the smallest intelligence agencies, its assessment on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq was not as inaccurate as that of other agencies.
7. Department of Homeland Security – Office of Intelligence and Analysis
The scope of "homeland security" includes emergency preparedness, border control, transportation security and biodefense (Ebola and SARS, for example), among other issues. The Office of Intelligence and Analysis is charged with gathering intelligence in these areas and sharing it with state, local, tribal, territorial and private sector partners through a network of "fusion centers."
8. Drug Enforcement Administration – Office of National Security Intelligence
The DEA is the government's watch guard for drugs that are illegally manufactured, distributed or dispensed. It is also responsible for the seizure and forfeiture of assets connected with illicit drug trafficking. The Office of National Security Intelligence assists law enforcement with investigations and prosecutions. Most recently it has focused on the threat posed by a surge in heroin and counterfeit prescription pills containing fentanyl.
9. Department of the Treasury – Office of Intelligence and Analysis
Intelligence gathering at the Treasury dates back to its beginning, when Secretary Alexander Hamilton sent a tax official in disguise to investigate the "whiskey rebellion" underway in western Pennsylvania. Today the Office of Intelligence and Analysis sits within the Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, which works to prevent sanctioned countries, money launderers, terrorists, drug kingpins and purveyors of weapons of mass destruction from parking or moving their money through the U.S. financial system.
10. Department of Energy – Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence
Even the Department of Energy has an intelligence office. It traces its origin to the Manhattan Project, when the Atomic Energy Commission was charged with analyzing the Soviet Union's atomic weapons program. Today the office's role is to provide technical intelligence on foreign nuclear weapons, energy security, science and technology, and nuclear energy, safety and waste.
11. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
Supporting the Defense Department, this agency is the principal provider of geospatial intelligence – analysis and information about Earth's natural and man-made features and geo-tagged activities. This "GEOINT" is used for combat, humanitarian and disaster relief, border and transportation security and security planning for special events. One of the agency's claims to fame is pinpointing the Abbottabad, Pakistan, compound where Osama bin Laden was hiding; another is operating the reference system for GPS.
12. National Reconnaissance Office
The NRO was a secret agency for 31 years, until its existence was declassified in 1992. The office designs, builds and operates the nation's reconnaissance satellites, providing the Pentagon, CIA and others precision navigation, early warning of missile launches and near real-time imagery to support anti-terrorism activities. On the civilian side, the satellites help survey damage from natural disasters and support environmental research.
13. Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance
The Air Force's intelligence branch, organized into the 25th Air Force, uses airplanes, drones and satellites to identify hideouts, bunkers, mobile launchers and weapons caches. It is also responsible for code-breaking activities within the Air Force. All that surveillance takes up a lot of digital space – in 2013, one wing alone received 20 terabytes of data daily, processed 460,000 hours of video and disseminated 2.6 million images.
14. Army Military Intelligence
The Army's intelligence branch intercepts electronic communications and provides maps, ground imagery and information on foreign forces to assist fighters in the battlefield.
15. Office of Naval Intelligence
The Navy's intelligence branch keeps tabs on foreign scientific and technological research, analyzes the structure, tactics and readiness of foreign naval forces, and tracks merchant shipping to identify illicit activity.
16. Marine Corps Intelligence
The Marine Corps' intelligence officers create military maps, intercept and translate radio and electronic signals, analyze images collected from sensors and carry out counterintelligence.
17. Coast Guard Intelligence
The Coast Guard, part of themilitary and the Department of Homeland Security, protects and defends more than 100,000 miles of coastline and inland waterways. On an average day, the Coast Guard conducts 45 search-and-rescue cases, seizes 874 pounds of cocaine, interdicts 17 migrants and helps move $8.7 billion worth of goods, according to its website. Its intelligence office helps with criminal investigations and provides other national agencies with intelligence from domestic and foreign ports, coastal waters and offshore.

Recent revelations of illegal NSA surveillance activities are no surprise to a growing number of people whose lives have been disrupted and destroyed by the high-tech CoIntelPro(13) styled efforts of America’s intelligence communities.
American Citizens are targeted with military weaponry because they exercised the right to free speech – in disagreement with the Bush Adminsitration’s policies – or they have threatened the profit and propaganda potential of multi-national corporationsl. Some are selected for targeting simply for testing of new systems and technology by DOD contractors who are given free reign to develop these weapons, regardless of the disastrous effects on its victims of non-consensual experimentation.
There are many people who hope that NSA whistleblower Russell Tice will speak truth to power regarding a subject that is a specialty of his – space operations systems, command and control warfare, advanced technology and all-source collection analysis. During an 18-year career, he worked on some of the most secretive programs in the government.
(1) Tice would not discuss with a reporter the details of his allegations, saying doing so would compromise classified information and put him at risk of going to jail. He said he “will not confirm or deny” if his allegations involve the illegal use of space systems and satellites.

Big Brother Spying on Americans - The Threat of Satellite Surveillance [EXCERPT]
"There is no place to hide on the face of the earth. It takes just three satellites to blanket the world with detection capacity. Besides tracking a person’s every action and relaying the data to a computer screen on earth, amazing powers of satellites include reading a person’s mind, monitoring conversations, manipulating electronic instruments and physically assaulting someone with a laser beam..."
ECHELON: AMERICA'S SECRET GLOBAL SURVEILLANCE
Echelon is just one of the many code names for the monitoring system, which consists of satellite interception stations in participating countries.
Today, advanced psycho-physical technology once available only at the Pentagon and U.S. intelligence agency level, National Security Agency, the little known Central Security Service - Signal Intelligence, the Defense Intelligence Agency and Central Intelligence Agency has been legalized for a massive technology testing program for military and law enforcement personnel.
Using technology now highly advanced and highly perfected, in research, TESTING, and development for decades, the technology is capable of manipulating private thoughts of anyone using the infrasound vibrations produced by the brains’ electrochemical impulses, i.e. brainwaves, and so much more.
These brainwaves, which can manipulate and influence emotional states as well, can be broadcast via microwave transceivers, infrasound and ultrasound transceivers, Tracking and Data Relay Satellites, Global Positioning Satellites, and any other form of technology which uses electromagnetism, i.e., television, radio, the internet, and especially cellular telephones serving a dual purpose for tracking.
The Pentagon calls this mind reading and subliminal, subconscious brainwashing technology Synthetic Telepathy, the DOD / Military Industrial Complex, the “Voice of God.” In the early stages of development, during the Cold War, the Russians referred to it as Psychotronics, or Psychological Electronic, although there is absolutely nothing paranormal about it.
The result of decades long mind control scientific efforts, initially focused on computer microchips which are today smaller than the thickness of a human hair, and which can be inserted into a person by means of an injection, capsule, or tooth filling. This is with or without the patient, or even the knowledge of a doctor or a pharmacist.
With the latest and rapid technological advancements, and ongoing development, available to the U.S. intelligence agencies, and global efforts, the need for computer chip implants or injections for conducting “mind control” synthetic telepathy and subliminal, subconscious altering and brainwashing attacks against targeted persons is believed to probably be obsolete now. Rather, a satellite network of Tracking and Data Relay Satellites, along with Global Positioning Satellites using remote control, is used against individuals suffering from inhumane high tech psychological harassment designed to make the target crack.
A covert, legalized program for military and law enforcement has come of age, and is now fully operational and operating, not only at the Federal level, to include the FBI, state and local police department, backed my military technology and military personnel. As untold numbers of victims continue to come forth and report covert victimization by “Synthetic Telepathy” and it being used for conducting training and/or experimentation using human beings essentially as lab rats from state-of-the-art operation centers.
The scenarios appear to be standard operating procedure with role playing such as: tough love acting, diversions, feints, decoys, smokescreens, smear campaigns by association, and openly secret intimidation (Community Organized Stalking) campaigns, good guy / bad guy, and covert extreme Directed Energy Weapon physical torture which can result in "Slow Kill" operations deteriorating the victims health slowly but surely by intent.
Due to the disbelief of the horrors of “The Program” and its reality, and the patents, or that this type of heinous, ruthless, cruelty is happening today covertly, many can't help but question how other human beings could be so vicious, and most conclude those at the helm destroying human lives, without even batting any eye, are probably closet atheists, sociopaths, or perhaps mentally controlled themselves or with Machiavellian intelligence.
On a personal level, admittedly, this horrific wrong, is at times difficult to digest. This is especially true when targets realize that these efforts will target your families and even grandchildren. We also begin to recognize that likely, intentionally, this technology may have been intentionally designed to give the operator the look and feel of simply playing a video game, compounded by years of violent video games and violence on TV playing a major role in shaping the psyche of the agencies and employees using it now desensitizes to pain, suffering, and murder.
Sitting comfortably state-of-the-art operation centers, or operations as close as next door, or across the street, clean shaven, suited and uniformed Goons, have become little more than human monsters, on a mission for the puppet master, NWO mass and social population control, and who appear programmed themselves thrilled, and empowered by the capability to remote control, individuals, groups and large populations.
And, they will covertly kill!
BELIEVE IT OR NOT!
CONGRESSIONAL RESEARCH SERVICE REPORT (CSR) - Satellite Surveillance, Establishment of Fusion Centers, etc.
Below is a partial Congressional Research Service Report (CSR), Summary and Background for Congress which gives an accurate history of the U.S. Spy Satellite Initiative within the USA and how it is related to the civilian population today legally.
Satellite Surveillance: Domestic Issues Congressional Research Service
Reconnaissance satellites, first deployed in the early 1960s to peer into denied regions of the Soviet Union and other secretive enemy states, have from time to time been used by civilian agencies of the federal government to assist with mapping, disaster relief, and environmental concerns. These uses have been coordinated by the Civil Applications Office at the U.S. Geological Survey, a component of the Interior Department.
Post 9/11, the Bush Administration sought to encourage theuse of satellite-derived data for homeland security and law enforcement purposes, in addition to the civil applications that have been supported for years. In 2007, it moved to transfer responsibility for coordinating the civilian use of satellites to the Department of Homeland Security. The initiative was launched, however, apparently without notification of key congressional oversight committees.
Members of Congress and outside groups raised concerns that using satellites for law enforcement purposes may infringe on the privacy and Fourth Amendment rights of U.S. persons.
Other commentators questioned whether the proposed surveillance will violate the Posse Comitatus Act (separates military and civilian affairs) or other restrictions on military involvement in civilian law enforcement, or would otherwise exceed the statutory mandates of the agencies involved. Such concerns led Congress to preclude any funds in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008 (H.R. 2764, P.L. 110-161), from being used to “commence operations of the National Applications Office...until the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security certifies that these programs comply with all existing laws, including all applicable privacy and civil liberties standards, and that certification is reviewed by the Government Accountability Office.” (Section 525.)
Similar language has been included in a subsequent Continuing Appropriations Act (P.L. 110-329) approved in September 2008.
The Obama Administration conducted its assessment of the issue and terminated the NAO in June 2009, maintaining that there was better information sharing programs to meet the needs of state and local homeland security partners. Little public information is available concerning current policies for the use of satellite information for domestic purposes.
This report provides background on the development of intelligence satellites and identifies the roles various agencies play in their management and use…..
FULL REPORT DETAILED REPORT FOR SATELLITE SURVEILLANCE: DOMESTIC ISSUES - JANUARY 2011
FUSION CENTERS: ISSUES AND OPTIONS FOR CONGRESS, JANUARY 2008
CREATION OF FUSION CENTERS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES AS THE NUCLEUS
The creation of post-9/11 intelligence information fusion centers does not represent a totally new concept but suggests an extension of pre-9/11 state and local law enforcement intelligence activities. Most state police/bureau of investigation agencies have run intelligence or analytic units for decades. Many of the fusion centers examined for this report were the outgrowth of those units, prompting some to refer to fusion centers as ‘state police intelligence units on steroids.' Conceptually, fusion centers differ from their predecessors in that they are intended to broaden sources of data for analysis and integration beyond criminal intelligence, to include federal intelligence, as well as, public and private sector data. Furthermore, fusion centers broaden the scope of state and local analysis to include homeland security and counterterrorism issues...
Initially, in 2006, the actual establishment of the Homeland Intelligence Security Network (HISN-Intel pilot) set the stage.
Through this architecture, a fully integrated intelligence information sharing enterprise evolved. To implement this plan, a number of working group’s undertook specific tasks in analyzing requirements, conducting prototyping and piloting of emerging technologies, and initiating the acquisition of necessary capabilities.
NOTE: Emerging Technologies - Synthetic Telepathy (hearing voices effect), mind reading software, directed energy weapons, holograms, dream manipulation, seeing through the target's eyes, etc., etc., etc.
Satellite Surveillance: Domestic Issues - Congressional Research Service
The report further states:
The development of satellite reconnaissance systems is one of the major and enduring accomplishments of the U.S. Intelligence Community. Beginning in the Eisenhower Administration, officials in the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Central Intelli-gence Agency (CIA) developed “remote sensing” devices that would permit the gathering of accurate information on capabilities of potential enemies without entailing the risks of manned overflights or of covert agents.
Satellite imagery undergirded U.S. strategic planning for a quarter century and a series of arms control agreements with the Soviet Union. In early years, film canisters were returned to earth and processed at ground stations for further dissemination. In the 1970s it became possible to forward data by electrical transmission directly to collection agencies.
The efforts of intelligence agencies are focused abroad, and satellite passes were optimized to gather information on areas of interest, mostly in Europe and Asia. At the same time, satellites also passed over U.S. territory, and collection on domestic targets could be obtained as a “free good.” In addition, it was often necessary to undertake “engineering passes” by which technical specialists could compare imagery with data obtained directly from ground observation.
Engineering passes provided detailed aerial photography of domestic sites. Declassified documents published by the National Security Archive indicate that as early as 1968 consideration was being given to provide images captured by intelligence satellites to civilian agencies on issues such as hydrology and oceanography, mapping, and emergency preparedness. In the mid-1970s, there was extensive concern about past efforts of the CIA and other agencies to monitor U.S. persons, and these concerns extended...
ESTABLISHMENT OF MAJOR URBAN FUSION CENTERS AFTER 9/11
Little is being publicized that U.S. citizens, speaking against tyranny or injustices, or for many and varied reasons, have been blacklisted or labeled "Domestic Terrorist" in an ongoing domestic program called "War on Terror."
Thousands of targeted victims, within the USA today, report 24 hour a day, 7 days a week surveillance and relentless Directed Energy Weapon attacks. Many are being targeted from numerous state-of-the-art operation centers fusion / counter- terrorism divisions, or locations within their community.
This today, is a combined program of not only military technology, and military personnel but, federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies and on steroids.
"The Program" was legalized under the guise of a necessity for mass control technology testing for riot / crowd control, research activity and as shown later unleashed by the Bush Administration after 9/11. It has run amuck and using powerful Radio Frequency technology is being horrifically used covertly.
The ruthless PsyOps of coercive, of beamed physical torture is designed to silence anyone, speaking the harsher truths, by relentless focus, hoping to entrap, hurt self-or others, snap, or commit suicide, believe it or not. The arsenal consists of handheld, portable, land, sea, aerial drone, cell/microwave tower antenna topped and space-based systems and devices.
