The CIA works to collect information and intelligence from outside the US. And spy. The FBI is the highest level of law enforcement in American. Up until the Patriot Act, the CIA was not allowed to work on US soil and the FBI had no involvement off US soil.

The CIA is not allowed to operate on domestic grounds, but if the Americans are in other countries, the CIA may watch them for possible contact with agents of other countries.

The CIA spied on American citizens. The CIA attempted to assassinate world leaders. The Watergate scandal brought to light many of the illegal activities the CIA was conducting.

it depends on the type of cia agent. Lots of paper work but they basicly find out about any threats that pose on the United States. They work off U.S soil while the F.B.I works on U.S soil

CIA stands for Central Intelligence Agency; an American government agency responsible for the collection of intelligence.

The CIA is not law enforcement, and therefore, cannot arrest U.S Citizens. The CIA is strictly an intelligence agency that collects information from foreign nations. If the CIA needed to have an American citizen detained, they would delegate through the FBI.

Overview: That's a hard question to answer because we couldn't simply compare the CIA with the FBI. The CIA works mainly as an intelligence gathering force. On the other hand, the FBI is the highest level of law enforcement for the United States. They work on the high profile robberies, corporate frauds, etc.Traditionally the FBI was only allowed to work on US soil, and the CIA could operate anywhere BUT US soil. Since the passage of the Patriot Act and the formation of the umbrella Department of Homeland Security these lines have blurred considerably.Opinion One: If you really want to know which is better, I prefer CIA personally. Since CIA is an agency deal with international stuff, FBI is a organization do with federal stuff, CIA must be more trained.Opinion Two: The CIA is responsible for world affairs where as the FBI deals within our country as a law enforcement agency.Opinion Three: cia is in my opinion better because they deal with the intelligent side, when FBI is just the top police and law enforcement. while both deal with law, FBI has the most special rights. cia is just a government organization that gathers information on terrorists, criminals, etc....................Marfalicious patty cakes come from the CIA-So FBI sucksextreme opinion 4: well the cia is for presidential that means that they protect the president and take info about tourist now in the other hand the FBI has better power they can go international and us soil and other places every were you go say I'm FBI they will treat you better than any thing because they are more command in the world so i hope this helps i'am a principle in a school of intelligence.
