i'm not sure if you are familiar with the video game splinter, which involves a Sam Fisher as a secret agent working for the USA's NSA.

But i was wondering, do they, or any other country have anything similar to that?

I'm sure that other countries have something COMPARABLE, but....IDK, man.

I think that the things closest to a US Splinter would be something like a Spetznaz special operative (russia) or an SAS member, or a french GIGN.

That's all I can really think of.

I would bet that most countries have exactly this type of thing...

and agree with Loki, SAS, GIGN, etc.

Who would the US's be. NSA ?

isnt delta force the US equivilant of the SAS?

what i mean is just one agentman dropped off in a country and goes around, like into a government building and does what he does, then comes out again, without no one knowing they were there

You mean like a James Bond type.

Yes, that organization he works for IS real.

M16, wasn't it?

British intelligence. Yes, yes. that's what you're looking for.

Fisher is ex-CIA btw

The equivalent would be the assasins working for the CIA at the time of the Cold War (John Clark, another Clancy character also was one of them).
If what's officially said about the NSA should be taken seriously, Fisher couldn't have been transferred to the NSA.

Also, recon specialists from differend SF units, they are especially trained in stealth.

And of course the Mossad.
All specialists in cover ops, including kidnapping: snatching Mordechai Vanunu is a perfect example.

What was that organization in True Lies?

Omega agency or something like that?

Yeah, I like that. We should have something like that. In fact, I'm sure that we have something similar that the public doesn't know about.

it always seems that someone on here always knows about something secret in some way or another, so does anyone know anything about this?

Sure. It is not too hard to get into one of those groups. All you have to do is have Tier 1 experience, be employed by either the NSA/CIA/DIA/etc, and be one $hit hot motherf**ker.

Just returning to the MI5 / MI6 bit above, of course these people will have their own 'deadly one man operatives'.

We know that all major agencies like to keep things within their own four walls. Therefore it makes sense that they would all have their own people capable of getting the job done. If the job requires a 'Sam Fisher' type of guy then they must have a dozen lined up and ready to go. Likewise with the 'James Bond' type agents.

With the cash and power that these organisations have, there must be literally hundreds of training facilities around the world, each one training agency specific agents.

a bit sideways again, and fictional, but who was it that Jason Bourne worked for in the Bourne Identity?
was that CIA?
it is fictional but surely every lie has a little bit of truth in it

I think it was in fact the CIA. I'm not positive though, so don't quote me on this one. I don't feel like popping in the DVD right now.

well actually almost the exact same thing exists.sam fisher in splinter cell is a SigInt agent for the NSA right?well the NSA do have agents for their SigInt (signals intelligence) division that would do much the same thing

Signals intelligence is capturing of electronic signals. They're geeks, not assassins...

Fisher isn't an assasin per-se. He's just a badass spy. I was reading some stuff on Delta Force. If what I'm reading is true, those guys are freakin badass, they dont mess around.

I wouldnt have thought there would have been these types of agents working alone, the whole, "one man to save the world" kinda thing just doesnt work, but the type of people are in the SAS/SBS, they just workin in teams.



The guy is wkd tho:p
