It appears to be a pattern in the Middle East and now Africa, doesn't it? Whether we go in by force, under the guise of "spreading democracy", or
whether by stealth via destabilization, insurrections, and coups, the end result is to take over a region, topple the existing governmental apparatus,
and place a puppet government which is friendly to multinational corporations.
In other words, a country is destroyed, and the vultures come in and help themselves.
The State Department wasn't asleep at the wheel, they were simply doing what they always do.
Whether the native populace is being goaded into fighting back is another kettle of fish.
