Top 10 ZANIEST C.I.A. Blunders!!!





The CIA has sure gotten up to some wacky adventures (by wacky I mean pointless and cruel)! Here’s a rundown of the top 10 or so (not 100% sure there’s exactly ten in this but I could have easily done 20+ the CIA f’s up so much).

Thanks to everyone who helped me with this:

Sources in order of how much I recommend you read them:

The Jakarta Method by Vincent Bevins (“Sakarno Parno” and “The Vampire.” This was the best book I read in 2020)

The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein (“MK-Ultra.” Must read to understand neoliberalism)

Legacy of Ashes by Tim Weiner (“The Bay of Pigs,” “Same Bay, Different Pigs.” Incredibly thorough history of CIA failures, pretty hard to look at them as anything other than a complete joke after reading this)

The Wizards of Langley by Jeffrey T Richelson (“Acoustic Kitty” and “The Pigeon Projects”)

The Very Best Men by Evan Thomas (“The Vampire” and “Sakarno Parno”)
