The CIA’s Greatest Hits details how the CIA:, hired top Nazi war criminals. This book does cover lots of conspiracies, and I found more often than not they made sense. The book is a great bathroom reader, where you can pickup a story in a few minutes and put the book down.

The CIA’s Greatest Hits details how the CIA:, hired top Nazi war criminals. I didn't believe every story I read, but I liked the chance to get a different perspective on so many varied events. Hopefully you'll get several "You've got to be kidding me!" moments from this book, which will send you to the library or web in disbelief. It's a small and short book, but each story is also quite compact.

The CIA's many attempts to assassinate democracy are described in 42 brief chapters, each accompanied by a cartoon. Mark Zepezauer took advantage, unlike many Americans, of the declassified CIA documents, and compacted complicated events into a single book.

The CIA’s Greatest Hits details how the CIA:• hired top Nazi war criminals, shielded them from justice and learned—and used—their techniques• has been involved in assassinations, bombings, massacres, wars, death squads, drug trafficking, and rigged elections all over the world• tortures children as young as 13 and adults as old as 89, resulting in forced “confessions” to all sorts of imaginary crimes (an innocent Kuwaiti was tortured for months to make him keep repeating his initial lies, and a supposed al-Qaeda leader was waterboarded 187 times in a single month without producing a speck of useful information)• orchestrates the media—which one CIA deputy director liked to call “the mighty Wurlitzer”—and places its agents inside newspapers, magazines and book publishers• and much more. The CIA’s crimes continue unabated, and unpunished. The day before General David Petraeus took over as the twentieth CIA director, federal prosecutors announced that they were dropping 99 investigations into the deaths of people in CIA custody, leaving just two active cases they’re willing to pursue. The first edition of The CIA’s Greatest Hits sold more than 38,000 copies. This fully revised and updated second edition contains six completely new chapters.

This book does cover lots of conspiracies, and I found more often than not they made sense. The book is a great bathroom reader, where you can pickup a story in a few minutes and put the book down. I didn't believe every story I read, but I liked the chance to get a different perspective on so many varied events. Hopefully you'll get several "You've got to be kidding me!" moments from this book, which will send you to the library or web in disbelief. It's a small and short book, but each story is also quite compact. I think it would not be a good book to try to read all the way through at one sitting, but if you enjoy taking stories a few at a time, this book could be an interesting purchase.

Well, if the facts do really stand true, this is a very scathing report of an organization that seems to break every principle upon the country that is purports to defend. Or perhaps it tells a very different story about what the US stands for. Recent admissions of culpability by the CIA regarding MK Ultra for example (2006) are enough to confirm a lot already. Negative feedback on this book is mostly from apologists who say, "Hey, we made some mistakes," or something to the effect of. "Since CIA operations remain mostly covert, we don't know what good they've done." Well perhaps that's true, but the record seems to tell a different story.

I read this book right after september 11th when I was curious about why someone might want to attack the United States. After reading this book all I can say is WOW! Still I had to admit that I was more than a little dubious about the claims this book makes. I spent several months doing research and was severely disappointed when it all checked out. The CIA's Greatest Hits is the short version of some of the sketchiest things we are never taught in school.

Thinking about this kind of stuff tends to make my guts and my intellect roll. In fact, it may be easier to call the book propaganda and lies so I wouldn't have to think about the consequences of our government killing all those people. If you accept it as truth (or just do the long hours of research like I did) you will probably start to ask some difficult questions about the way the government actually works and how it purports to work and why there is such a massive gulf between two.This book takes some of that pressure off by presenting the information with funny little graphics and a tongue in cheek style that allow you to keep reading instead of getting bogged down and depressed. You can even laugh out loud occasionally.

Zepezaur does a superb job here because the book appeals to wide range of people. Someone who is totally unfamiliar with politics could pick this up and finish in a couple nights of light reading. This book scores major points with me because it's easily approachable to those who don't have a strong backing in history, yet the battle hardened Chomskyite will no doubt find new info.

I do wish he had cited sources on the pages themselves instead of in an index. It just makes them easier to check out for people who think this book is full of lies.

I also just want to say that thought it was really funny when one reviewer said "Yes, the CIA has made mistakes" and another responded by saying "A decades-long pattern of murder and subterfuge does not equal an occasional mistake." Another reviewer said that the book was disrespectful...I think it's sad that "respect" means hiding the truth about egregious crimes.

After reading the book I ended up emailing Mark Zepezaur with a couple questions. He was extremely accommodating and super friendly. I also got to talk to him briefly during a book tour and he has been one of the more politically articulate people I have ever met.

If you liked this but felt that it was a little short or didn't present enough hard facts check out another (short) book called Addicted to War: Why the US can't Kick Militarism. Mark Zepezaur also did a similar comic series called "US History Backwards."

I have used this book on numerous occassions for political science classes, journalistic research and studies on Latin America and the "middle east", as well as numerous de-bunking sessions with people who seem set in their denial of US involvement (direct and indirect) in toppling popularly elected regimes in the world. The sad truth is this is only the tip of the iceberg...

The short synopsis and easy access for any audience makes this book a must for anyone serious about having a detailed and informed discussion about US foreign policy both in the past and today.

This book opens ones eyes to show how and why the US is hated around the world. What we think we are doing for the "good" of America is actually chipping away at what we would like to think about who we are. In reading this book, one will find that the US government and it's leaders are manipulative, manipulated, and deceitful which flys against all that the so-called "founding fathers" had wanted for this country. Americans think that "We the People" actually means something when, in fact, it does not.

This book is an eye opener. Some things in it haven't been proven true, but when one of those things is written he clarifies that it's not set in stone. The people saying that the CIA has also done good things are missing the point. No amount of good can make up for the murder of millions. I learned that the CIA basically acts like American Dad. "Was he supposed to die? No? Oops!".

A brief synopsis of major intelligence screw-ups that the CIA was connected with in some fashion. Meant to be political satire/humor, It really misses the mark. The errors are real, but not always funny. At least the book was inexpensive !
The covert activities of the CIA; its disastrous history overthrowing governments ("regime change"), political assassinations, drug trafficking, torture, and more. Brief, yet highly educational and effective.
