Brief case studies of the CIA's greatest 'triumphs'.

Abstract:  A journalist, editor and publisher of a comic news series in Arizona, Zepezauer describes this slim cartoon-illustrated volume as a listing of 42 of the U.S. intelligence agency's biggest propaganda triumphs. Each case study delivers a 2-page summary of covert operations in economic warfare, rigged elections, assassinations and genocide. Each brief is appended with a list of sources that flesh out in greater detail what he calls the "crimes" of the CIA.
Zepezauer's stand is that CIA "disinformation" is muddying the waters of policy making and action must be taken to abolish its efforts. His litany of intelligence misdeeds includes Ruby Ridge, the Iran-Contra affair, Watergate, the blowing up of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, the Bay of Pigs invasion, the U.S. relationship with Manuel Noriega and more. While suggesting CIA involvement in the Jonestown massacre of 1978, he proposes leader Jim Jones may have even escaped death.
The Real Story Series purports to cover political stories in a short, well-written format without rendering them boring. The brevity of this little book ensures it.
