Although there are not reports being shown to the public about CIA agents working and conspiring in Venezuela, we know for a fact that Mike Pompeo, when he was the head of the CIA, talked about doing regime change in that country. As we read from a report from the Independent:
The head of the CIA has suggested the agency is working to change the elected government of Venezuela and is collaborating with two countries in the region to do so.
In one of the clearest clues yet about Washington’s latest meddling in the politics of Latin America, CIA director Mike Pompeo said he was “hopeful that there can be a transition in Venezuela and we the CIA is doing its best to understand the dynamic there”.
He added: “I was just down in Mexico City and in Bogota a week before last talking about this very issue, trying to help them understand the things they might do so that they can get a better outcome for their part of the world and our part of the world.”
Mr Pompeo’s comments, delivered during a Q&A session at a security forum organised by the Aspen Institute think tank, have sparked outcry among supporters of Venezuela’s government. President Nicolas Maduro, who was elected in 2013, has denounced Mr Pompeo’s remarks and hit out at the governments of Mexico and Colombia.
Since we know for a fact that the CIA worked for the Contras in Nicaragua — who were responsible for massacres and inhumanities –, and also conspired for the overthrow of the Arbenz regime in Guatemala, it is quite obvious (especially with the fact Pompeo, as director of the CIA, pushed for regime change), that the CIA is active in the Venezuela situation.
