"The NSA's already got S.H.I.E.L.D. on its watch list. Why poke the bear? The big, scary, waterboarding bear?"
Eric Koenig to Skye[src]

The National Security Agency is part of the United States' Department of Defense and is one of the main intelligence services in the United States of America.


HYDRA Uprising

"S.H.I.E.L.D. implodes and everyone wants answers. The CIA, NSA, NRO – them I can handle. But Congress? Congress is like kindergarten."
Maria Hill to Pepper Potts[src]

In the wake of HYDRA Uprising, NSA, as well as the CIA and NRO investigated the event and approached Maria Hill, questioning her about the Uprising.[1]

Together with Eric Koenig, Skye managed to hack an NSA satellite feeds to learn what happened at the Fridge when the facility was raided by HYDRA. Skye proposed to use the satellite images to learn where the escapees went, and despite she successfully hacked the feed, Ward killed Koenig and disabled it before it could be effectively used.[2]


"I was an NSA analyst. I was working on Afghanistan intelligence, which... Maybe, you know, it's just an oxymoron because our basic tactic is to pay anyone we can to tell tales."
Micro to Frank Castle[src]

NSA assigned David Lieberman to work on Afghanistan intelligence. One day, Lieberman received footage from Gunner Henderson, a former member of covert death squad on which was recorded torture and assassination of Ahmad Zubair. Using his nickname "MICRO", Lieberman sent footage to Homeland Security agent Dinah Madani, but it was intercepted by William Rawlins. Rawlins tracked down Lieberman and ordered Carson Wolf to assassinate him and deem him as a traitor.[3]

Database Request

Investigating the DNA samples, in order to identify the man who encountered Dinah Madani, Wendy contacted an NSA. She requested an NSA to use the agency's database, however, they could not find any information about him.[4]
