Play 'I Spy' with CIA's new Instagram account

MENLO PARK, Calif. (KGO) -- The CIA has officially joined Instagram and kicked off a game of "I Spy" at the same time.

The CIA's account with the Menlo Park company includes the line "I spy with my little eye..." inviting users to spot hidden messages and clues in their photograph.

An office desk is filled with many cloak-and-dagger items.

The agency already has a presence on Twitter and Facebook.
