The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is a civilian agency of the United States government responsible for providing national security intelligence assessment to senior policymakers. The CIA also engaged in covert activities at the request of the President of the United States.
At several points throughout the CIA's history, the Templars and Abstergo Industries have manipulated the agency's actions in favor of their plans for a New World Order, notably through toppling democratic governments around the world and replacing them with Templar-influenced dictatorships.
In 1953, the CIA, along with the United Kingdom's MI6, overthrew the Iranian government of Mohammad Mosaddegh and helped the Iranian Shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, take absolute power. They also funded and trained his secret police, the SAVAK. The following year, the agency planned the overthrow of Guatemala's president, Jacobo Árbenz.
