America's Central Intelligence Agency - and the people who work for it - are the perfect heroes for movies and TV shows. The greatest CIA characters are usually highly-trained, highly-lethal masters of subterfuge who are tasked with protecting American interests abroad. CIA characters are usually put in impossible situations where failure not only means death but also a total disavowment by their own government. 

It's all intriguing stuff, and some of the greatest action films of all time have centered around the actions of CIA operatives or other other shadowy organizations working alongside the CIA. That's how we get the Mission Impossible's IMF and Jason Bourne's Operation Treadstone. But who would win in an ultimate showdown of deception and hand-to-hand combat? Who among all the greatest CIA agents of all time comes out on top?

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to vote up America's greatest CIA agents. Is there somebody we missed (probably because they're so good at hiding)? If so, add them to the list!
