2 Italy

Among the best trained police forces in the world. Has used sophisticated technology since fighting internal organized crimes and still used to fight terrorism.

Italy had to cope with red and black terrorism (communist red brigades and fascist NAR) and has learned from it.

Only country of the western big powers that has never been targeted by muslim terrorist.. they must have done a good job.


Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was once on number one in the world. It lost the rank and credibility after the mysterious incident of 9/11. Nonetheless, CIA is serving USA as one of the best organizations of the country. It gathers information from in and outside of the country and then analyzes them which are transferred to law making agencies. In this way such rules and laws are formulated which are in the best of the national interests. CIA is credited to break USSR in cold war. The headquarters are in Langley, Virginia near Washington DC and it was established in the year of 1947. CIA is no doubt the most famous and popular intelligence agency among the common masses throughout the world.

4 Israel

MOSSAD came into existence in 1949 and is actively working since then. Like other intelligence agencies, it is not a military organization rather a non-military one. But the people enrolled are given military training to meet the defense challenges. The undercover operations of MOSSAD are mind blowing. MOSSAD plays an important role in the wars Israel faces with other nations. Major dealings of MOSSAD are with the Arab countries. This organization also takes care about the Jews and their migration from Syria and other countries. The headquarters are in Tel Aviv, Russia. Nuclear war was diminished in Israel due the efforts of this intelligence agency. The faculty includes a total of 1200 people.

5 UK

MI6 is an old agency, established in 1909 in the capital city of UK, London. The agency operates with the combine collaboration of Internal Security Service and Government Communications Headquarters. The basic aim of MI6 is the protection of state. And this shielding is done by spying and counter spying. About 3200 officials are presently working day and night to safeguard the national assets of the country. MI6 also plays significant role in keeping relations with the other countries.

Mi6 wasn't even known to exist until recently, plus the were the ones to set up other agencies such as MOSSAD after the empire fell

6 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. more.

Only one thing to admin. Please delete India from this list. Secret agencies are meant to kept secret. Hence I guess India being on no. 11 has proved its one of the most active "SECRET" intelligence agency RAW.

LOL they are cowards..

India is best country

I think the list says "Countries with Best Intelligence Agencies." I think India's place is justified since our internal intelligence agencies (like IB) are crappy. Only the R&AW (Sad, it's corrupted too.) and the DIA are the better ones in my opinion. - blasphemian
