Covert Operations - CIA Insider Tells All: (4)
Our series on covert action, featuring former CIA official John Stockwell and Louis Wolf, co-editor of Covert Action Information Bulletin. The focus is on specific covert and overt activities of U.S. intelligence agencies and their surrogates: the instruction in torture techniques to Salvadoran army troops by U.S. Green Berets; the attempted coup in the Seychelles Islands; the Argentine torture squads; the South African wars in Angola and Namibia; the attempted Klan coup in Dominica; and attempts to destabilize the Mozambique government -- all of which are reported in Louis Wolf's _Covert Action Information Bulletin_, which the U.S. government would like to put out of business. We also discuss how CIA "disinformation" tactics manipulate public opinion by planting stories in the press and by financing and supporting right-wing newspapers. From "Alternative Views" out of Austin, Texas in 1983.
