Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
This second program of a three-part series closely examines the American Central Intelligence Agency's alleged attempts to gain control over foreign government. It reviews evidence that the CIA has taken part in assassination attempts, with special attention paid to the problems in Iran and various Central American countries. Since America publicly maintains that it never uses extreme tactics like assassination attempts, these charges leveled against the CIA will always remain highly controversial. The program is enhanced by scholars and government officials from around the world who continue to study this evidence in order to hold the U.S. accountable for all of its activities abroad.
