Agent 00 and agent nateur are a couple of agents from the FBI.
The former is in charge of investigating bank fraud and other financial crimes while the latter is in the CIA.
Both agents are also spies, but they are known for their roles in other intelligence agencies and other agencies in the federal government.
A former FBI agent agent 00 is pictured in a still from an episode of the hit ABC show Agents of SHIELD, which aired in the US on September 17, 2017.
A former CIA agent agent agent 00 is seen in a screenshot from the first episode of Agents of W.H.I.E.L.D., the Marvel superhero TV series which airs on ABC on September 19, 2017, in Los Angeles, California.
The two agents have become known for working with the FBI and the CIA, which is why the NSA tool they developed would be so controversial.
“I don’t think the public wants this,” a former FBI counterintelligence agent told Reuters.
The agent who was the primary point of contact between the NSA and the FBI, former FBI Counterintelligence Agent Chris Carter, told Reuters that the NSA “wasn’t the right agency” to be involved in a spy tool.
Agent 00 was previously assigned to the NSA, but he left the agency shortly after leaving the bureau in 2013, according to the Washington Post.
On March 18, 2017 the NSA confirmed that Agent 00 is no longer working for the agency.
Former CIA agent Christopher Carter told Reuters in January 2017 that he left CIA after “over a year” because the agency was too close to the Russian government.
“The CIA and FBI are partners in the fight against international terrorism, which means that it is incumbent upon us to be sensitive to the needs of our partners, especially when those partners may be hostile to our shared goals,” Carter said in a statement.
However, the former CIA official told Reuters on March 19 that Carter did not quit the agency because of the NSA’s spy tool, but because of a disagreement with his supervisor.
CIA Director Mike Pompeo said in January that the agency’s spy tools were “not designed to collect intelligence.”
On Monday, Pompeo told Fox News that the CIA was “not going to get into any details” about the NSA spy tools.
“We’re not going to tell you what the tools are, we’re not even going to confirm that they’re in the system,” Pompeo added.
While it is unclear whether the NSA is the primary target of the new spy tool or the target of other countries or agencies, it is notable that the tool is named after the agency that used to run the program.
NSA Director Mike Rogers, seen here speaking at the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) signing in the Capitol in Washington, DC, on September 22, 2017 “The reason that I didn’t quit, I thought, ‘We need to stay in the game, because we have a partnership,'” the former FBI official told CNBC.
It is not the first time the NSA has used its spy tools to spy on Americans.
In 2013, the NSA used spy tools like the PRISM program to spy for the US and its allies in the name of national security.
In 2016, the agency used spyware called PRISM to spy on US citizens.
A separate spy tool known as the Paying for Performance program was created to collect and share data about foreign intelligence services like the Russian FSB and the Chinese Communist Party.
In the past, NSA has deployed spy tools that could target the communications of Americans overseas, as well as foreigners, such as in 2012, when the agency installed a tool called the Tor Project that was designed to monitor foreign online traffic.
