Can you crack the CIA's first Instagram post? 2ba19910

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has blown its cover on Instagram, giving would-be secret agents an intriguing mission to accomplish.
Known for its secrecy, discretion and shadowy spy tactics, the US foreign intelligence service has shown its sense of irony by joining the social media platform.
"We are the nation's first line of defence," the account's bio says, portraying a seriousness more typically associated with the organisation.
Its first post, however, takes a more playful tone. It includes a picture of a desk scattered with curiously placed objects, ranging from a curly grey wig to a pile of foreign banknotes.

Taken at the CIA's headquarters in Langley, Virginia, the photo is cryptically captioned: "I spy with my little eye…"

The challenge, it would seem, is to identify the objects in the picture. And to give you a clue, a CIA spokesperson told CBS News many of them belong to current employees.

The account was opened as part of the CIA's strategy to recruit a younger generation of officers, agents and analysts.

"Joining Instagram is another way we're sharing CIA's stories and recruiting talented Americans to serve here," a CIA spokesperson said.
"Through the account, we'll give a peek into Agency life, but we can't promise any selfies from secret locations."

So what are the objects?

Not to identify the "objects", but the clues in the picture.  For example, the clock (2) gives you the time.
