CIA  Felix Leiter is a fictional Central Intelligence Agency agent created by Ian Fleming in the James Bond novels

Byrån inrättades 1947, i efterdyningarna av attacken mot Pearl Harbor 1941, av president Harry S. Truman ur nämnda Office of Strategic Services från andra världskrigets dagar. OSS upplöstes i oktober 1945 men skaparen av det, William J. Donovan, hade 1944 lagt fram ett förslag till president Franklin D. Roosevelt att en ny organisation skulle bildas som stod direkt underställd presidenten. Trots stark motsättning från militären, utrikesdepartementet och FBI så bildade Truman 1946 Central Intelligence Group. Den 18 september 1947 bildades National Security Council och Central Intelligence Agency.

Efter terrorattackerna mot New York och Washington DC har USA kraftfullt byggt ut sitt allra hemligaste strids- och informationsnätverk. I juli 2010 redovisade tidningen Washington Post ”det topphemliga USA”: säkerhets- och underrättelsetjänster, militärkommandon, leverantörer och underleverantörer av materiel och en tilltagande privatindustri av rådgivning, spionage och agentverksamhet som anlitas av den amerikanska regeringen. Nästan en miljon människor arbetar i den innersta verksamheten. En stor del av arbetet utförs av privata företag, nästan tvåtusen stycken.

Jamaica airport Boscobel Aerodrome to be renamed in honour of Ian Fleming … from James bond 007 Museum Sweden Nybro

29 Jan

Jamaica is set to open its third international airport on January 12. Formerly known as the Boscobel Airstrip, the new Ian Fleming International Airport (OCJ) has been overhauled and expanded to accommodate private international aircraft, as well as small domestic planes. The airport is located just 10 minutes from the famed GoldenEye Hotel & Resort in Oracabessa, and tourism officials hope that the airport with offer jet-setters quick and easy access to resorts on the North Coast. It will become the island’s main port of entry for private jets entering Jamaica and may in the future support domestic shuttle service to other parts of the island.

The airport is named for author Ian Fleming, who penned all 14 James Bond novels in his home at GoldenEye and played host to the international glitterati of the 50s and 60s. The airport’s opening will be officiated by the island’s Prime Minister Bruce Golding and will be attended by current GoldenEye owner and founder of Island Records, Chris Blackwell.fleming_airport_open
