Amazon Prime Original’s most awaited show, ‘Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan’ is out on Prime Video and has been loved by viewers and being appreciated by critics and influencers! It is the story of the analyst as he uncovers a series of suspicious transactions that take him and his boss James Greer out from behind their desks into the field to hunt down a powerful new threat to the world

The show and its dialogues are replete with numerous references to CIA jargon which blew our mind. It had us constantly goggling the lingo so that we could catch up with this fast-paced series. Turns out, showrunners, Cuse and Roland have inculcated the typical vocabulary of CIA Officers in the show after working very closely with them to keep the show authentic and real. So we did a little bit of homework to give you a quick round-up of the acronyms used in Jack Ryan to help you understand the plot better:

1. NCS – National Clandestine Service

The National Clandestine Service (NCS) is another branch of the CIA. It was created after 3 committees (i) The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (ii) the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and, later, (iii) the Iraq Intelligence Commission, under President George W. Bush, called for reform within US intelligence institutions. Support for such reform was strong in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and controversial disclosures about the US invasion of Iraq in 2003.

2. SOG – Special Operations Group

The Special Operations Group (SOG) is a department that includes high-threat paramilitary or covert operations with which the US government does not wish to be overtly associated.

3. PAG – Political Action Group
