This is fairly moderate by CIA standards.
Let us recall, for example, the Nicaraguan Contras, and the Somoza dynasty in that same country; Noriega in Panama, the butchers in El Salvador, Suharto in Indonesia, Pinochet in Chile and the Shah in Iran...

Anyone who still thinks that "the Agency" is an instrument of world peace and the US a crusader for democracy and human rights ought to be dragged to the back of the room and given ten lashes of the whip!
Oh, Reagan and the Contras. Good times.

That would be a very bad idea.
