The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). "Spook" is a slang term for an undercover intelligence agent or spy. The 25-year-old from Wisconsin quickly came to be one of the top agents to come out of the spook factory. After 30 years of service in the field, I'm looking to fall back on a cushy administrative job back at the spook factory.
