*The US Intelligence Community*

I'm just behind the times.  Who knew?

.gov info needs no permissions so here's the copy:

The U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) is a coalition of 17 agencies and
organizations within the executive branch that work both independently and
collaboratively to gather the intelligence necessary to conduct foreign
relations and national security activities. Our primary mission is to
collect and convey the essential information the President and members of
the policymaking, law enforcement, and military communities require to
execute their appointed duties.

The 17 IC member agencies are:

Air Force Intelligence
Army Intelligence
Central Intelligence Agency
Coast Guard Intelligence
Defense Intelligence Agency
Department of Energy
Department of Homeland Security
Department of State
Department of the Treasury
Drug Enforcement Administration
Federal Bureau of Investigation
Marine Corps Intelligence
National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
National Reconnaissance Office
National Security Agency
Navy Intelligence
Office of the Director of National Intelligence
Members of the IC collect and assess information regarding international
terrorist and narcotic activities; other hostile activities by foreign
powers, organizations, persons, and their agents; and foreign intelligence
activities directed against the United States (U.S.). As needed, the
President may also direct the IC to carry out special activities in order
to protect U.S. security interests against foreign threats.





And now they have their own tumblr.  How
hip.  And covert.

I'm just out of the loop.
