    This is just another lie told by the head of the US Agency of Lies, the CIA. It has consistently been the USA and Israel who have destabilized and toppled Arab states in the mid east. Do Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, and Libya ring a bell? No? How about US demands that Assad must leave Syria? Forgot that one? Lets check the history books: Yes again, it was the CIA and British MI5 that destabilized Iran and overthrew the government in 1953 to better control Iranian oil. And long before the emergence of Fidel Castro, the US preempted a democratic election in Cuba to install a US-friendly dictator named Batista. Sounds like the 2003 Bush-war against Iraq. And now for a list of known US involvements in destabilizing Latin and South American countries: Guatemala (1954), Dominican Republic (1961), Chile (1970), Nicaragua (1982), Grenada (1983), and Panama (1989). Since then the USA has been accused of attempts to overthrow the governments of Venezuela, Columbia, and most recently Bolivia.
