In this CIA Documentary 5 former CIA agents describe how their initial pride and enthusiasm at serving their nation turned to anguish and remorse, as they realized that they were actually subverting democracy and killing innocent civilians all in the name “national security” and promoting foreign policy agendas. The CIA is confronted with overthrowing governments, making own soldiers to heroine addicts, secret assassination programs, and much more. The stories are mostly based on the war in Vietnam, the tense relationship with Cuba and the overthrowing of a democratically elected government in Guatemala, the Shah of Iran or Salvador Allende in Chile. In the documentary “The Fog of War” former Secretary of Defense Minister Robert McNamara gives a even deeper insight into the secret operations douring his term in office.
