    CIA Homepage for Kids

    https://www.cia.gov/cia/ciakids/index.shtml

    I am not fooling! This is absolutely real, apparently Clinton in '97 requested federal government agencies expand internet-based educational access to kids, parents, and teachers. The site's a little old-school and certainly doesn't look like what one would expect from the CIA website, but I find it fascinating that it exists at all.

    The page for the CIA seal is pretty funny, they animated the eagle so that he's winking!!! https://www.cia.gov/cia/ciakids/seal..._the_seal.html

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    If JT responds that he found it while researching an extra credit project for his Spanish teacher, I am leaving and never posting here again.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Not a bad page actually. I blundered across myself a few years back, while considering aapplying for a job with the CIA. (Stiictly office and low level mind you, as I am diabetic, and field work would be a bad idea.) Then, I read Robert Baer's "See No Evil", and thought better of it.

    I like the CIA site. the way they describe the UK like a commodity is amusing.

    Actually, I was looking on their site to see if they had their TV ads online, I wanted to show someone the one they've been running on Comedy Central during The Daily Show. They didn't have 'em that I could find, but when I saw the CIA Kids link I got totally distracted by the idea.

    I am having trouble finding the links to "how to overrun third world banana republics and install puppet dictators who will rape the people and resources of your country for the benefit of the U.S," and "fun with international espionage."
