Most people in the US form their opinions of the CIA from movies and TV shows like Homeland. But millions of people in the Global South have seen a decidedly less heroic side of the Agency. This talk looks at the role the CIA has played in maintaining US empire, from the beginning of the Cold War to today.

Torture and Democracy by Darius Rejali
