How the US Spent Billions to Change the Outcome of Elections Around the World

DANNY HAIPHONG—The Plot to Control the World takes readers into the Democratic Republic of Congo, where the CIA’s coup of revolutionary Patrice Lumumba continues to haunt the resource rich nation in the form of endless US-backed genocide.
