CIA blasted for 'woke' recruitment video with 'cisgender millennial' – 'China's laughing!'


The two-minute video features a 36-year-old Latina CIA agent who tells viewers she used to suffer from “imposter syndrome” but has now embraced herself “unapologetically” and refuses to internalise “misguided patriarchal ideas of what a woman can or should be”.

The unnamed agent says: “I am a woman of colour, I am a mom, I am a cisgender millennial who’s been diagnosed with generalised anxiety disorder. I am intersectional, but my existence is not a box-checking exercise.

“I did not sneak into the CIA. My employment was not and is not of a fluke or a slip through the cracks. I am educated, qualified and competent.”

Former CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright took issue with the video, tweeting: “The CIA used to be about mission to country. (I speak from experience). Now it’s now about demanding — and getting — accommodation to fix an emotional wound or advance a personal agenda. America is less safe with this new CIA, and dangerously more political.”

The video has also been blasted by many saying it is promoting diversity in a bid to escape its controversial past. One person said: “Next time when I’m getting tortured at a CIA blacksite, at least I know it’s by a diverse crew.”

Another said: “From me, unapologetically, you should apologise for Gladio and everything in South America. Actually, what has the CIA truly accomplished that isn’t monstrous?”
