The CIA's Greatest Hits

The CIA's Greatest Hits Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The CIAs Greatest Hits details how the CIA:

• hired top Nazi war criminals, shielded them from justice and learned—and used—their techniques

• has been involved in assassinations, bombings, massacres, wars, death squads, drug trafficking, and rigged elections all over the world

• tortures children as young as 13 and adults as old as 89, resulting in forced “confessions” to all sorts of imaginary crimes (an innocent Kuwaiti was tortured for months to make him keep repeating his initial lies, and a supposed al-Qaeda leader was waterboarded 187 times in a single month without producing a speck of useful information)

• orchestrates the media—which one CIA deputy director liked to call “the mighty Wurlitzer”—and places its agents inside newspapers, magazines and book publishers

• and much more.

The CIAs crimes continue unabated, and unpunished. The day before General David Petraeus took over as the twentieth CIA director, federal prosecutors announced that they were dropping 99 investigations into the deaths of people in CIA custody, leaving just two active cases theyre willing to pursue.

The first edition of The CIAs Greatest Hits sold more than 38,000 copies. This fully revised and updated second edition contains six completely new chapters.
