What does a CIA spy do?

They aren't referred to as 'spies'. The official title is Operations Officer (OO). Many movies and books portray CIA OO's as super-spies (invincible, able to do anything, ect.) Truth is they aren't out spying on high end criminals (most of the time) and seducing beautiful women and driving an Aston martin like James bond. Most CIA OO's are stationed in places like Afghanistan gathering counter-terrorism information. I also hope you have realized that James bonds gadgets are COMPLETELY 120% fictional.
