Ex-CIA Director Says U.S. Meddles for a 'Good Cause'
Key Excerpts from Article on Website of Truth in Media

Ex-CIA Director James Woolsey said it himself. Yes, the U.S. meddles in other countries elections. But when we do it, its for the right reasons. Only for a very good cause, he says, because our government is ensuring foreign elections result in democracy. But doesnt democracy demand that people decide for themselves? And how well has U.S. meddling actually worked out? According to Carnegie Mellon University researcher Dov Levin, the United States has attempted to sway elections in other countries more than 80 times worldwide between 1946 and 2000. But those 80+ instances of the U.S. interfering with other nations elections does not include regime change efforts. In the 1970s in Chile, the CIA conducted a botched kidnapping of General Ren Schneider, the Chilean Armys commander-in-chief, that resulted in Schneiders death. The plot was an effort to undermine the presidency of Salvador Allende, which may have fueled the violent coup that led to Allendes overthrow. In 1974, Henry Kissinger was quoted in Newsweek, saying about Chile: I dont see why we have to let a country go communist due to the irresponsibility of its own people. Levins tally also does not include covert coup detats where our government overthrows a foreign leader like the the U.S. did in Iran in 1953 or in Guatemala in 1954. In fact, Salon magazine documents 35 nations in which the United States has overthrown legitimate governments and or supported fascists, drug lords or terrorists. U.S. intervention is rarely about democracy.
