CIA: According to our experts and what I could find on the Internet (probably the best way to feed the public misinformation) the CIA's function is to gather information about and exert political influence over foreign governments, corporations, and individuals, and to advise their own government in the process. They achieve this through covert and paramilitary operations and actively engage in psychological, economic, and cyber warfare. The most frightening fact that I came across was from an LA Times article that explained that the CIA has White House approval to make their own “hit” lists and is capable of carrying out global "operations" with weaponized drones from the ground in the United States. BUT I ask… would you want it any other way?
KGB: KGB is an abbreviation of a Russian group known as the Committee for State Security once it is translated. It was the National Security Intelligence Agency for the former Soviet Union from 1954 to 1991. But if you think that the KGB is not active just ask former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko who wrote several books damning the KGB but escaped prosecution and gained political asylum in the U.K. before he was poisoned with polonium-210 on November 1, 2006 and died later that month as a result. U.K. investigators thought they knew who had assassinated Litvinenko but the Russian government at the time (Putin) refused to extradite the person to the U.K. for investigation. Further, Vladimir Putin was a former KGB agent himself and designated Dimitri Medvedev who was Putin’s protégé in earlier politics together as his successor. At that time Senator Barack Obama said that it was "a clever but transparent way for Putin to hold on to power." I would go as far to say that it was also a way of KGB cronies to also maintain power. Scary but I think it’s true. What do you think?

The KGB does not exist anymore. It closed down in 1991.
It basically became two different new organizations. The FSB and SVR.
Check out my research thread on this subject.
"The KGB doesn't exist anymore"
So, why are they calling them the KGB?
See how fast they muddy the water with disinformation?
Here we are in the West, as ignorant and uninformed about Russian Secret Services as possible.
Perhaps the Russians like it that we know nothing about them??
Anyways, check out that thread it's pretty good information.
Also for a side dish, check out another one I wrote called
"We always Blame the CIA, but what about the GRU?"
I expose the GRU whom is the largest intel agency on Earth. (Russian)
So the TV show should realistically be "The CIA vs the SVR"

Well I don't know that it's "disinformation" as much as it's more in a "historic" sense. From the little bit I saw of the commercial for it, they had suitcase guns ect....So it seemed to be a bit more "cold war" era or something like that. I'm planning on watching it at 10, so I'll know more after I've seen it.
I wonder why MOSSAD isn't added to the mix.
