Another CIA front company that's in deep with computer technology and Silicon Valley start ups.
While the professionals that collectively define the In-Q-Tel team come from a diverse array of backgrounds, they share similar traits–deep knowledge of their chosen fields, strategic vision, and a dedication to In-Q-Tel's core mission: delivering solutions that address the most pressing technology needs of the Intelligence Community.

In addition to In-Q-Tel's leaders, senior managers, and the members of our Technical and Strategic Investments teams, In-Q-Tel is guided by a Board of Trustees comprised of recognized leaders in national security, financial analysis, and high technology. In-Q-Tel also works closely with the broader U.S. Intelligence Community through In-Q-Tel’s Interface Center, housed in the Central Intelligence Agency, which ensures In-Q-Tel's strategies are on target with pressing needs and result in the deployment of innovative technologies to help safeguard our nation's security.

Including our good bud, "Buzzy."

Meet The CIA's Venture Capitalist

In just six years, the Arlington (Va.) venture, which also has offices in Menlo Park, Calif., has invested in 77 transactions. Last year, it completed a deal about every other week, each ranging in size from $500,000 to $3 million. By comparison, a typical venture-capital firm does about a dozen deals a year. Many of the startups credit In-Q-Tel for helping them get a foothold in the federal world. "It's hard to be an 18-person organization and have government entities see you as useful," says Jeff Jonas, chief scientist at Analytic Solutions, which IBM (IBM ) acquired in January, 2005.

Safeguarding the nation's security? By the use of false-flags and planned economic disasters?
