Exposes the CIA's attempts to bring down Latin America's most popular leader

-- Exposes the CIA's attempts to bring down Latin America's most popular leader -- 'Eva Golinger's book is the antidote to [the Bush adminstration's] poisonous propaganda [about Hugo Chavez]...Well written, with solid evidence, this is the political survival guide to the land of the next oil war.' Greg Palast, author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy When in 2005 the Christian fundamentalist Pat Robertson called for Chavez's assassination, public outcry forced some questions: Was that a CIA goal? Did the US have plans to invade Venezuela? And exactly what was the extent of US involvement in the April 2002 coup against Chavez? Venezuelan-American attorney Eva Golinger uses documents obtained under the US Freedom of Information Act to lay out irrefutable evidence that the US knew about the plot to overthrow Chavez before it happened. The extent of US funding of opposition movements in Venezuela, the history of US interventions across Latin America, the suspicious blacked-out lines and pages of these documents, and the ongoing investigation suggest even deeper US involvement.
