Factual errors 

The Director of Clandestine Services (DCS) is the only senior CIA official whose identity is not public. There is no way news reports would feature live interviews or even state his name.
Although the CIA does have armed personnel, (Special Activities Division/Security Protective Service) they have limited/no law enforcement powers and are forbidden from operating within the US itself or outside CIA facilities. They cannot, as depicted in the show, operate as a generic SWAT type unit.

The National Security Act of 1947 which created the CIA specifically forbids it from conducting operations on US soil. So whenever a character does something in the name of the CIA in the US they are actually violating federal law.
