While the CIA is commonly understood to be an intelligence agency, we shouldn't forget the important role it has played in carrying out clandestine operations that have benefited the financial elite.
This accusation is substantiated by the CIA's elitist origins, its well-documented connections to Wall Street, and its sordid history of carrying out assassinations, staging coups, and fomenting civil wars.
The CIA and the financial elite have always had shared goals, interests, and backgrounds. Those in the upper echelons at Langley have often attended the same universities, belonged to the same fraternities, and attended the same clubs and parties as the Wall Street elite. This is why the intelligence community is often described as the “old boy network.”
