Nomenclature Covert action (CA) is sometimes referred to as the "quiet option" within the CIA, which is usually the agency expected to design and execute this policy option. The phrase comes from a supposition that covert action is apt to be less noisy and obtrusive than some other instruments of American foreign policy, such as the landing of a Marine brigade. 26 Sometimes professional practitioners also refer to covert action as the "third option," one between diplomacy and open warfare.

The theory behind the use of covert action has been straightforward, though "theory" is no doubt too strong a word; its practitioners have been less theorists than practical men with an interest in advancing American interests around the world. Their main concern has been, in the words of a former chief of the CIA Covert Action Staff, "the global challenge of communism .
