The most lethal CIA Interventions in Latin America - Bolivia

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.

Bolivia - 1971

The vast Latin American natural resources are the envy of the greedy and powerful politicians of the United States, who resort to any means to control them for their own benefit, and never for the people and countries they brutally exploit. During decades, U.S. multinational corporations enslaved people in vast regions of Chile, Bolivia and Peru. When those living under slavery conditions dared to rebel against their oppressors, they were annihilated in bulk. Che Guevara felt compelled to go to Bolivia and help the people rise in revolution.

This was 1967. By then, U.S. mining companies had enslaved entire communities, including children, who they banned from school. Two years later, Che Guevara was murdered by the CIA. Once out of their way, CIA officials established a military regime.

However, the people again turned on Washington. General Juan Jose Torres took power and implemented reforms to benefit workers and those living in poverty. Hope returned to Bolivia and its people, but the CIA would not allow this to continue. The agency recruited General Hugo Banzer. He led the coup against Torres and in 1971, he kicked off his violent dictatorship. He ordered the torture of a number of opposition leaders and the execution of hundreds of influential political leaders. He sent about 8,000 other leaders to jail. Washington was happy.
