New CIA Recruitment Ads Target Iranian-Americans

by Faramarz

CIA officials recently unveiled two new television recruitment ads targeting Middle Easterners.

The Iranian-American ad depicted Iranians differently than Arabs. The
Arab ad took place in a family dinner setting, where as the Iranian ad
featured individuals representing professional careers, such as

Given the history of CIA in Iran, I don't think this is such a great idea.

Also, why is it that the Arab-American ad is about food, and the Iranian-American ad is about going to school and studying hard? 

The video is embeded in the following link.

value of a spy

by hamsade ghadimi on

how many spies were double-crossed (for money, strippers, ...) by the cia upper management and ended up being executed?  god knows.  aldrich ames comes to mind as an example.  for every aldrich ames, there are hundred we don't know about.  spying for cia in one's homeland is like playing russian roulette.  not to mention cia's record of nefarious activities around the globe including iran.  no thanks.

Very High Quality IRI Ad

The Iranian recruitment ad is probably inspired by Get Smart TV series. Here is a secret meeting between Max and his boss

The IRI video is better

by Sargord Pirouz on

Hard to believe but the quality of the IRI Intelligence Ministry public service announcement ad is actually superior to the CIA recruitment ads!

The comments on this web site will hopefully reflect this new wave of Iranian CIA agents. I heard they are doing this in Arab dense Michigan. I would love to know what goodies they are offering. Maybe greencards? Too little too late!

Another thing is that you don't know what type of assignments CIA will give you, CIA may make you penetrate mosques and do the crazy stuff against your is not worth is better to live a life with integrity and with a clear conscience.....

They have been in LA for a long time!

Their commercials sucks.  They have one running on a popular Iranian Rdio in LA and many in Shahi's Statellite TV (Pars TV and others).  The result, who knows. 

I doubt very much if they attract any decent professional IA.  Mostly those with no skills who can not find a job go for it.  Same is true with Army. 


CIA is so clueless!

by Q on

First of all, Dearborn has no significant Iranian population, for that they need to come here to LA, but then again, they are already here.

Yolanda is right. You will be always under suspicion inside the CIA, especially now after the shooting in Texas. And even if you leave, you'll spend the rest of your life trying to convince your family and friends you are NOT working for CIA!

If the US Government and Media didn't spend all their time demonizing and attacking Muslims and Middle Easterners, they would have all the valunteers they needed.

Avoid like the plague!


Running out of Spies!?

by farokh2000 on

CIA and other Spy Agencies have always done this kind recruitment, turning people against their Motherlands.

That is the Spy business. They look for people who have no heart or feelings for other human beings.

I am sure with the Economy the way it is nowadays, they can get good return on their investment for the ads.

It is a filthy business, no matter how you look at it.

Wow! Thank you for the link! I don't know what to say...... I think this kind of job requires security clearance, the employees have less freedom than other non-CIA jobs......CIA can turn around and accuse you of being a spy or double agent........I will never work for CIA........
