A great story similar to this is How Superman Defeated the Ku Klux Klan.
It details how a KKK mole provided the FBI with the weekly Klan passwords which were then broadcast on the Superman radio program. It drove the Klan crazy as they could not keep up in real time with all new passwords.
As the storyline progressed, the shows exposed many of the KKK's most guarded secrets. By revealing everything from code words to rituals, the program completely stripped the Klan of its mystique. Within two weeks of the broadcast, KKK recruitment was down to zero. And by 1948, people were showing up to Klan rallies just to mock them.

All we ever did was give them a framework to join the civilized world. Oil riches greater than the entire rest of the world. Real governments rather than prehistoric gangs eating each other. But could they do anything with it ? No. Still eating other, buying gold toilets and bidets instead of helping the Palestinians or Syrians.
Gee, what did the Israelis spend their money on ? Oh that's right, irrigation, crops, infrastructure, a working economy. And just enough weapons to keep the animals from eating them.
Iraq was very stable, and quite peaceful. My best friend as a child was from there and his dad was brought over to the US to learn Computer Engineering. They weren't as developed as the US but they were well off. Then we destroyed the country, ironically enough that best friend of mine (who happened to love the US) was killed by an American soldier... collateral damage.
