SpiesLike Us (CIA v KGB)

Soviet Spy Ring

Spies like us, film







  • The CIA stands for Central Intelligence Agency
  • It was created in 1947 by the National Security Act of 1947 signed by President Henry S. Truman
  • CIA is a descendant of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) of World War II
  • Due to the creation of the CIA many disposed Nazi operatives were recruited to become agents
  • They were offered financial aid and to be exempt from going to war trail for the crimes committed in WWII
  • In 1950 the Pacific Corporation was created as one of the many CIA enterprises


  • Project BLUEBIRD was approved by Director Hillenkoetter ; it was the CIA’s first behavioral control program
  • In 1951, the Columbia Broadcasting System started to get along with the CIA
  • This led to President Truman creating the Office of Current Intelligence
  • Things changed up when the Project BLUEBIRD was renamed to ARTICHOKE


  • The KGB stands for Комитет государственной безопасности (KomitetGosudarstvennoyBezopasnosti)
  • On Stalin's death in 1953, MVD (Ministry of Internal Affairs), Lavrentiy Beria merged the MGB and the MVD
  • Presidium eliminated Beria with charges of “criminal anti-party and anti- state activities” and executed him
  • Due to this the MGB was renamed KGB and separated from the MVD


  • The KGB failed to rebuild most of their illegal U.S. resident networks
  • McCarthyism and destruction of the CPUSA hindered recruitment


  • A spy who breaks the country’s laws maybe deported, imprisoned, or executed
  • The Rosenberg's are an example of spies who got executed from breaking the law
  • The U.S. court convicted Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, of handing the Soviets atomic-energy secrets during WWII
  • The Internal Security Act was another anti-Communist measure that was passed in 1950
  • It required organizations and party members to register with the federal government
  • Due to the Cold War anti- communism efforts of exposing alleged Communists in the U.S., it created a climate of fear and suspicion

Soviet Spy Ring

  • During World War II the Soviet Union wanted to uncover the military and the defense secrets of the Untied States
  • When the Manhattan project was taking place in the US the Soviet Spy Ring knew about it before the FBI
  • The Cambridge Five were a part of the Soviet Spy Ring
  • They were former students from Cambridge University who became spies for the Soviet Union during WWII
  • There were so many different types of people that gave atomic secrets to the Soviets, but no one knows how many people got away with it
  • Some of the people we do know today are: John Cairncross, Kluas Fuchs, and Theodore Hall
