A journalist's cry of outrage over what he sees as the American government's penchant for backing tyrants in the Third World, intervening in ways which ultimately undermine the national interest, and all the while lying. The book is fast-paced, anecdotal, and based on the author's personal observations and strong opinions. In a short epilogue, he speculates that the United States may have somehow contrived the bloody coup which led to Maurice Bishop's death in Grenada and the subsequent American intervention.
