The CIA's Greatest Hits - links page

Here are both weblinks and print sources for the material found in The CIA's Greatest Hits. I relied on two sources more than any others: William Blum’s indispensible overview The CIA: A Forgotten History (Zed Books, 1986; later reissued as Killing Hope), referred to below simply as Blum, and the now defunct periodical Covert Action Information Bulletin, referred to below as CAIB.
