The Secrets of the CIA Revealed

Secrets of the CIA

By David Johanssen

The people of the United States have always believed in “truth, justice, and the American way.” But whistleblowers in the CIA have told myriad stories of the assassination of foreign leaders and the subsequent installation of puppet dictatorships. Critics say its propaganda uses disinformation to fool the US public and justify administration policies by distorting reality. Is the CIA in fact a state-sponsored terrorist organization, the covert action arm of the presidency?

Featuring many ex-CIA agents, the documentary reveals how the organization has often been behind terrorist plots throughout its history. According to The New Yorker, the film gives “an incisive view of the dark and murky ploys of the CIA; not to be missed.” After the documentary we will discuss the CIA’s recent involvement in the Middle East. 50 pesos.

Wednesday, December 2, at 5pm: Einstein’s Equation of Life and Death. In 1939 Einstein was visited by an old friend who told him that the Nazis could soon be in possession of a terrible new weapon and that something must be done. This event set off a chain reaction that led to the Manhattan Project and bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. After the war, Einstein deeply regretted that his equation E=MC² was instrumental in the creation of the atomic bomb. 50 pesos.
