Being a drug/weapons smuggler would be good experience before the CIA

I would work for the CIA if my country truly needed me, but it would have to be something deadly important-the government does not pay well.

No, but the experience can be quite lucrative. There's a ton of ex-CIA and ex-Military guys who have used that experience to get jobs with government contractors, hedge funds, etc. and the like that are worth millions or more every year.

Even at junior levels that status of being a "combat vet" or "ex CIA" can give people a crack at top-tier jobs like McKinsey consulting or large Wall Street banks that would normally exclude anyone without any Ivy League or equivalently prestigious degree.

RE: Would you work for the CIA?
I've looked into government jobs that require clearances, but there seem to be a lot of restrictions on your lifestyle. I'm not sure of the work-life balance, and I have a feeling my social life would take a huge nosedive.

A lot of these types of positions go to ex-military and as noted above by Jetset military intelligence.

For those of you who are considering such positions and wonder what 'squeaky clean' means download the SF-86.

It's the longest form I've ever seen and can take hours to fill out. Background investigators will interview your references to see if there are any discrepancies. There are also serious penalties for falsifying information on it. For CIA and FBI expect a polygraph (sometimes multiple ones) as well.

However, Canadians helped CIA a lot. Think of Ken Taylor, who helped to smuggle Americans out of Iran in 1979.

Taylor was a great guy (he died recently by the way) but his role has been greatly downsized in that bullshit Hollywood movie called "Argos".

Taylor was a straight out CIA agent, and a big one at that, he was pretty much running the show for the Agency in Tehran. The US overthrew the Shah and put Khomeini in, to set Iran back 20 years and squander its wealth and youth on the Iran-Iraq war, a useless WW1 bloodbath.

Quote:Ken Taylor, the Canadian diplomat celebrated 30 years ago for hiding U.S. embassy personnel during the Iranian revolution, actively spied for the Americans and helped them plan an armed incursion into the country.

Mr. Taylor, ambassador in Iran from 1977 to 1980, became "the de facto CIA station chief" in Tehran after the U.S. embassy was seized by students on Nov. 4, 1979, and 63 Americans, including the four-member Central Intelligence Agency contingent, were taken hostage.

Had his espionage been discovered, Mr. Taylor told The Globe and Mail in an interview this week, "the Iranians wouldn't have tolerated it. And the consequences may have been severe."

Trent University historian Robert Wright, author of Our Man in Tehran , a new account of the incident released today, strongly implies that then-prime-minister Joe Clark insisted Mr. Taylor's spying be kept quiet, fearing a negative political fallout if the Canadian public learned that one of its envoys was a U.S. spook.

...Mr. Taylor himself said he never expected the story to come out. "It had been under wraps for 30 years, and my assumption was that it would be for another 30 years. I didn't expect to be here to talk about it."

The Shah was originally a US puppet, set up to rule Iran after the CIA overthrew the democratically elected, secular government of Mossadegh ("Operation Ajax").





But much like Saddam Hussein, another CIA puppet installed after the overthrow of a secular democracy in Iraq, the Shah had outgrown his usefulness by the 1970s, he actually provided stability and modernized the country. Under his rule, Iran was poised to become a great modern regional power. That's why the mullahs, with their medieval islamic theology and endless wars, had to be brought in.
