CIA Meddling ; It's OK if we do it to other countries, so long as there is no reciprocity

I have long argued that our government's history of turning the CIA loose on the rest of world, overthrowing dozens of governments and decimating dozens of popular movements within other countries leads to anti-American attitudes, and when blowback occurs, our media outlets feign shock, ignorance, and "struggle" to understand.

The Bush administration has been very belligerent when it comes to Venezuela and Chavez, and his plan to barter his oil and bypass its dollar denomination in trades is central to udnerstanding this bellicosity.

So when memos like this one are leaked, Americans should try and understand that what our government does to other governments and other peoples does affect their attitudes towards us. That's pretty basic, and not controversial.
