A Short List of the Most Lethal CIA Interventions – LewRockwell

“Short List”

By Gary G. Kohls, MD

The CIA has been exposed on a number of occasions through documented evidence, leaks of information and whistleblowing by active and former agents.

1) 1954 – Guatemala

In 1944, the violent US-backed dictatorship of Jorge Ubico was overthrown by a popular uprising.

2) 1959 – Haiti

Haiti is equally strategic to the United States as are the Dominican Republic and Cuba. So, Washington doesn’t hesitate when their brutal control appears to wane in the Caribbean.

3) 1964 – Brazil

The year of 1964 was one of incredible transformation in Brazil. Democratically-elected President Joao Goulart implemented his “Plan of Basic Reforms.” Even though the US had exerted much of its power through ensuring people weren’t lifted from ignorance and illiteracy, Brazil implemented real changes that made Washington very uncomfortable.

4) 1969 – Uruguay

During the sixties, revolutionary movements spread through Latin America. Uruguay was drowned in crises. The US saw influential socialist leaders emerge in this South American nation. Washington became obsessed with eliminating them, fearing the influence and power they were achieving.
