There's a sh!t load of information there, so obviously nobody will watch all of it, but it definitely makes for an interesting discussion.

The presentation is a bit sensational for my tastes, but the information is all legit.

Actually cold you give a summation of it, it would be cool to watch but I don't really have the time right now.

Sure, essentially it runs down all of the CIA's covert actions during the 20th century. The highlights are helping Nazi war criminals escape justice so that they could be used to fight the Russians, overthrowing democracy in Iran and installing a dictatorship, selling weapons to Iran and using the funds to arm and train terrorists in Nicaragua, Overthrowing democracy in Guatemala and replacing it with a dictatorship, then later arming and training military death squads in the country who were given orders to round up and kill any suspected communists, leading to the genocide of 200,000 native Mayans... that's just what I can remember off the top of my head.

This is all pretty well known stuff actually. Nothing shocking in here.

There's a lot more stuff in the video that is more obscure, those are just the things that came to mind because they are the most famous.
