About this video

Working for the Central Intelligence Agency for more than 30 years has given Carmen Medina a sharp appreciation for the idea of transparency. In this video story, the recently-retired deputy director of intelligence asks three questions: Is the public perception of CIA accurate and useful? What is the motor that runs the world? And, are we the world? Her answers will surprise and inspire you.


Carmen Medina retired this February from a 30+year career at CIA, most recently as the Director for the Center for the Study of Intelligence. During her time as a senior manager of analysts, Carmen was a key senior leader supporting the introduction of social media and new technology in support of analysis. She was the senior leader at CIA who gave the green light to Intellipedia. She’s written broadly on the business of analysis and is unusual for senior managers in her recognition of the need to embrace the 2.0 revolution to improve analysis.
