System Update with Glenn Greenwald – The Murderous History and Deceitful Function of the CIA
We all know – or SHOULD know – the CIA has always been an over-the-top, heavy-handed and brutal enemy of the World; they manipulate foreign policy in target countries, alter monetary policy, fund Coups’, and even assassinate and murder democratic heads of state to install ‘friendly’ Autocrats in 3rd world and other countries.
But when Russia China and other countries use “public networks” run by billionaires who simply do not give a shit how they misuse their network as long as “whoever those countries are” are paying for the ads they place and abuse of the system is tolerated and even promoted by the likes of FB, Apple and Google for revenue and head-count growth purposes. This expose from the Intercept chronicles and examines exactly the situations mentioned above – RECOMMENDED.
On this week’s episode of System Update, Glenn Greenwald talks to journalist Vincent Bevins about his newly launched book, The Jakarta Method. The book examines the series of mass murder programs engineered by the CIA with the purported goal of fighting communism during the Cold War, and how the consequences of these programs shape the global order — and U.S. politics — to this day.
