The CIA is all over the world .. has its hands in almost everything. I thought this was common knowledge? Like those 'hikers' picked up in Iran and accused of spying. You tell me: Who goes hiking along the Iraq/Iran border? ;p.
History records their attempted assassination of the leaders of other countries. They have their hands in inducing revolts throughout the world, where regime change is in their (our?) interest.
Heck, it's even public knowledge they have secret prisons throughout the world.
So ... nothing new here ;o. I can't think of anything that *would* surprise me about them.
