The washington connection and third world fascism
“A major contribution to understanding political repression inflicted by the CIA on millions around the globe.”
– Philip Agee, former CIA agent
This startling exposé of US-backed repression and human rights violations in the Global South sets out to disprove the view that internal political democracy necessarily “makes for humane and moral international behaviour”. By employing clear and uncompromising comparisons with totalitarian regimes such as Nazi Germany, Herman and Chomsky level the charge of fascism squarely at the White House and its compliant partners in Latin America and elsewhere.
