The history of U.S. military ‘Black Operations’ is long, brutal, and illegal. The CIA has overthrown the popular, peaceful, and democratically elected leadership of nations, and subsequently installed brutal dictators that serve Washington interests. Some past and present examples include operations in Chile, Venezuela, Iran, and Iraq. The ‘Color Revolutions’ of eastern Europe in the 1990s fit the same pattern. The Color Revolutions also entailed sophisticated international propaganda campaigns as well as the more conventional PsyOps directed at the target nations’ populations.
‘Regime changes’ are direct violations of people’s right to self-determination. Black Ops Wars of Aggression, like their publicized present-day counterparts in Afghanistan and Iraq, are often conducted to the tune of ‘spreading democracy and freedom’. This is euphemistic language, doublespeak, to disguise the truth that they are spreading systems of corporate fascism and political oligarchy throughout the world.
In the process of Black Ops regime changes, millions of human beings have been killed, tortured, and otherwise removed of all human dignity. Thousand year old societies and cultures are ripped apart at the seams, and rendered unmendable. The collective pain that has been, and is being, dealt to human bodies and minds is unconscionable.
Obscene war crimes are perpetrated in the darkness provided by ‘U.S. National Security’. Black Ops are subject to little or no Congressional oversight; they are planned and conducted at the discretion of psychopathic war criminals: Kissinger, Rumsfeld, Cheney, et al.
From Jacob G. Hornberger’s Will the CIA Kill or Oust Ecuador’s President?:
“…He recently fired his defense minister, army chief of intelligence, and commanders of the army, air force, and joint chiefs.
Why might those firings cost Correa his job or even his life? Because the reason he fired them was that Ecuador’s intelligence systems were “totally infiltrated and subjugated to the CIA.” As other rulers around the world, including democratically elected ones, have learned the hard way, bucking the CIA is a real no-no that sometimes leads to coups and assassinations.
What’s the CIA doing infiltrating Ecuador’s military intelligence systems? Good question! Maybe it’s because the CIA still fears the threat of communism. Don’t forget that that was the apparent rationale for the U.S. government’s support of Operation Condor, the campaign of assassination and torture co-sponsored by the brutal regimes in Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia, Uruguay, Brazil, Ecuador, and Peru during the 1970s. Don’t forget also that many of the brutal military personnel in those regimes received their training at the U.S. Army’s infamous School of the Americas, famous for, among other things, its torture manuals.“
From Larisa Alexandrovna’s CIA running black propaganda operation against Iran, Syria and Lebanon, officials say at Raw Story:
“…the Pentagon is continuing to conduct more aggressive “black” operations, approved by the National Security Council and the Office of the Vice President.”
“The majority of these efforts to destabilize Iran through a covert war of aggression have been carried out by the Department of Defense, largely steered by the Office of the Vice President and by then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
…In 2003, the Defense Department began working with terrorist and dissident groups in an effort to destabilize Iran, bypassing traditional intelligence channels.”
