The earliest known information acquired by the CIA on the Torchwood Institute was several mentions in British intelligence transmissions during the 1970s. Information was sporadic and incomplete during this period. Their next evidence of the agency's existence came when several case files were recovered by a CIA agent embedded in the Foreign Service during that time. Intelligence was more plentiful in the 1980s when CIA and British officials cooperated more closely. Several Torchwood documents attained during this time had references to investigations into paranormal and extraterrestrial cases. In the 1990s, the British intelligence agencies classified most of their intel, including all documents relating to the exact type and nature of the agency's activities. According to CIA files at the time of Miracle Day, the agency had little information about Torchwood from that period onwards. (TOR: "The New World")
