CIA crimes in Africa
A new book has revealed how US spying agency, the Central Intelligence Agency, carried out destabilization operations in Africa for decades.
The book, White Malice: The CIA and the Covert Recolonization of Africa, reveals how the CIA undermined newly independent African countries in operations that included assassination of leaders who were opposed to Western imperialism.
The CIA not only undermined newly independent Africa countries but suppressed the freedom movement in apartheid South Africa.
A tip from a CIA spy to authorities in apartheid-era South Africa led to Nelson Mandela’s arrest, beginning the leader’s 27 years behind bars.
