I'm looking for a word or short phrase to refer to the CIA or CIA operatives which has a similar connotation to "feds" used to refer to the FBI or other federal groups. Specifically I'm looking for something used pejoratively, whether or not that use is common within America itself.
I've tried finding synonyms to things like Feds, Pigs, Spy, etc., but didn't find anything that felt obviously applicable to the CIA specifically. "Feds" itself doesn't feel appropriate to use for an agency which works outside of the US, even though the CIA is technically a US federal agency.
Sample Sentence: "We were in Russia on vacation, when the [American CIA] overthrew the government."
