is many times larger of which this list is a small fraction.

Allen Dulles assassinated 58 leaders in Guatemala in 1954. The CIA began the Civil War which lasted

murdered Patrice Lumumba in Congo in 60, Salvador Allende in 73 in Chile, General Torrijos of Panama in 1981, has conducted countless assassinations in Afghanistan and many other Muslim nations.
