The United States has been intervening covertly and overtly in many countries since the late 1800s, however the CIA's first black ops date back to the World War II after Harry S. Truman signed the act by which the agency was created on July 26, 1947. The Central Intelligence Agency is responsible for terrorism, assassinations, military coups and rebellions around the globe and has deceitfully used many NGOs guised as organisms that promote human rights, democracy, freedom and economic development, including USAID, NED and IRI, just to mention a few.
Their true objective is imperialist in nature. The U.S. has interest in every country, be it for its natural resources, cheap labor force or because of its strategic geographical location.
In order to meet its goals, the CIA recruits influential, intellectual and charismatic personalities. The agency also resorts to threats, kidnapping, torture, enforced disappearances and assassinations. The organization incites violence, uprisings and military rebellion, and causes economic chaos and misery to the people through scarcity of basic foods and so on. The CIA has been exposed on a number of occasions through documented evidence, leaks of information and whistleblowing by active and former agents.
Uruguay - 1969
During the sixties, revolutionary movements spread through Latin America. Uruguay was drowned in crises. United States saw influential socialist leaders emerge in this South American nation. For example the urban revolutionary guerrilla known as the Tupamaros. Jose “Pepe” Mujica was part of it and so was his wife Lucia Topolansky. Washington became obsessed with eliminating them, fearing the influence and power they were achieving.
Nelson Rockefeller went to Uruguay to observe first hand how they were, generating a growing anti-Yankee sentiment. He returned to Washington to alert authorities that something needed to be done urgently. Of course, the CIA responded immediately. They sent their special agent Dan Mitrione. He trained security forces in the art of torture and other highly macabre practices that are indescribable in nature. And then the CIA put in power Juan Maria Bordaberry and his military dictatorship.
He ruled under direct order from Washington the next 12 years, during which he killed hundreds of people and tortured tens of thousands more. Repression was so brutal and Uruguayans were so traumatized and fearful they no longer carried out their traditional dances, which symbolize happiness and victory.
