CIA Agent Captured in Ukraine Helping Protesters

CIA Agent Captured in Ukraine Helping Protesters 20 Feb 2014 A CIA agent has allegedly been captured in the Ukraine, as shown in the video. The Special Activities Division (SAD) is a division in the United States Central Intelligence Agency's (CIA) National Clandestine Service (NCS), responsible for covert operations known as "special activities". Within SAD there are two separate groups, SAD/SOG for tactical paramilitary operations and SAD/PAG for covert political action. Special Operations Group (SOG) is the department within SAD responsible for operations that include the collection of intelligence in hostile countries and regions, and all high threat military or intelligence operations with which the U.S. government does not wish to be overtly associated. As such, members of the unit (called Paramilitary Operations Officers and Specialized Skills Officers) normally do not carry any objects or clothing (i.e., military uniforms) that would associate them with the US government.
