As Robert Gates, former head of the CIA during the reign of Bush the First, prepares to take over the Pentagon from Donald Rumsfeld, this history of the CIA's bloody involvements around the world should come front and center; but of course the establishment corporate media is not going to do anything of the kind!
John Stockwell, former CIA Station Chief in Angola in 1976, working for then Director of the CIA, George Bush. He spent 13 years in the agency. He gives a short history of CIA covert operations. He is a very compelling speaker and the highest level CIA officer to testify to the Congress about his actions. He estimates that over 6 million people have died in CIA covert actions, and this was in the late 1980's.
