“Was the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency involved in planning for regime change prior to events in February and March in Benghazi? Did the CIA and its assets have a role in fomenting a civil war?” Kucinich writes on his House web page.
The CIA has a long history of overthrowing regimes and leaders disfavored by the global elite. In the past, the CIA worked on "the dark side" – as Dick Cheney might put it – and tried to hide its participation in violent coups and assassinations. Since September 11, 2001, and the subsequent war on terror, however, the agency has worked out in the open and without pretense or explanation. It has not bothered to cover up its rendition program – its global kidnapping program – and has conducted an illegal war in Pakistan’s tribal region that makes headlines every couple weeks or so.
