Hey guys, I'm new here and this is my first post. I read that the CIA Special Activities Staff recruits from members of elite military units. My questions are do they recruit only officers or both officers and NCOs? Do you have to be out of the military to be recruited by them or do they take people who are currently in the military? My last question is can you inquire that you're interested in the CIA SAS or do they recruit just who they pick out? Thanks

I want to make sure I'm understanding this right, so you can be either Officer or NCO and you can apply and don't have to be recruited. Right?

The CIA SAS recruits very mature, highly experienced, seasoned vets, both officer and NCO- most notably from Delta and other high speed outfits.
Not much is known of recruitment, training, ect.. Although info is available: www.specialoperations.com... It's pretty sparse.
I'm sure you can inquire for a position, but if you have the skills desired, I'm sure you'd get a call.

Do you mean Special Air Service, No they don't take anybody... They have a long test... They have to life for them self for months anf prove taht they are in good shape, and then there's a roamer that they have to walk with an unsecured hand grenade...


I'll send a U2U about this topic, just a bit longer... Out of time now...

SAS: Special Activities Staff. A specwar unit within the CIA- under the directorate of operations. Your speaking of the revered British SAS. Never heard of them holding a unfused, spoonless grenade. But I heard in Vietnam, special forces units would sometimes make their mongs hold 'dummy' grenades to prove loyalty.

Is there an age limit to get into the CIA SAS because I read that they recruit up to the age 35 but I didn't think that seemed accurate?

Age limit? I doubt it; as long as you can prove your worthy, with the right skills.

There isn't a minimum age limit but 20 year olds aren't the highly experienced operators they're looking for. And in the case of the SAS/Special Activities Division/ Military Support Group (All 3 the same thing) it is possible in certain instances to waive the max age of 35.

I highly doubt the CIA is gonna recruit someone who belongs to ATS. And the things do are so important, like the world could end if they fail.

havent you played Metal Gear Solid 3?

Of course they use NCO, how else would they get anything done?

The British equvilant of the CIA's Special Activites Staff would be a military role. MI6 wouldn't touch anything that paramilitary.

For that kind of work, your probably looking at the 14th Intelligence Company (a.k.a. the Det). A friend of mine was in the Det during the Bosnia conflict, busy doing all of MI6's dirty work and assisting the [British] SAS.

Either your mate is telling some porkies or you have your units mixed up. 14 Int only work in Northern Ireland (Gods Country). Trust me on this one

Ex members may have been, but the unit wasn't. It was formed as a replacement for the FRU (Forces Recce Unit) in the late 70s for the sole purpose of gathering intelligence in Ulster. 14 Int has never worked outside the glorious fields of Ulster.

In conventional warfare, standard SF units (SAS/SBS) would fullfil these roles. Sorry to burst any bubbles.

Just noticed your edit. Good effort though, at least you didn't try to lie about the mess-up.
