THE MI5- The MI5(Military Inteligence Section 5) started in 1909 and they are the "Secret Police" of the British Government." At that time, their main goal was to find the risk posed by German-espionage with Britain and to deal with overseas problems. They made many great accomplishments for Britain during the First World War by capturing 30 German Spies and destroying their spy network during the war. It was grand since only 10 people were part of the MI5. YO.gif
Later on they were able to deal with problems with the Soviet Union and terrorism from the Palestinians and the Irish (bombings and hostage situations.) They dealt with vanishing communist ideas and are responsible for dealing with national security and economic interest. Their base is in London at Thames House. Very little is known about their success since they prefer to be silent for security reasons but we do know that they have done much in protecting Great Britain.






Some of the responsibilities of the MIA are described here
