The CIA was involved in bombings, smear campaigns, assassination and coups -- including a couple of attempted coups against French pres. De Gaulle. This is why DeGaulle angrily pulled France out of NATO -- which forced the US to move NATO headquarters from Paris to Brussels.
But the average American knows nothing about this -- because the US press has never informed us.
This covert history no doubt explains why -- shortly after 9/11 -- French intelligence leaked the story about how Osama bin Laden visited the US hospital in Dubai in July 2001 for dialysis treatments -- and was visited at the hospital by the CIA station chief. The French had every good reason to piss on the CIA parade.
Do you ever run out of wacky conspiracies??
