Since the end of World War II, the U.S. has fought communism around the globe.
From Brazil to Indonesia, that has resulted in hundreds of thousands being killed. Journalist and author Vincent Bevins brings new insight to the story in his book: The Jakarta Method.
Its subtitle is – Washington’s Anticommunist Crusade & the Mass Murder Program that shaped Our World. The book takes us inside decades of CIA and U.S. government intervention. Host Anand Naidoo talked with the author who joined him Via Skype from Sao Paulo.
