Hondurus Coup, the CIA and two American Corporations

John Perkins, the author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, argues convincingly that the recent coup in Honduras was engineered by two US companies, with CIA support. He begins by saying:

What people have now is a corporate bureaucrat who stands between a person and his or her doctor. That’s much scarier than the specter of more government.
