NEW YORK — A book detailing the role of the CIA in overthrowing the democratically-elected government of Honduras has come out in the United States.
The book, titled Coup in the Dark: The Untold Story of the Coup against the Honduran Government, is being released Tuesday by the nonprofit watchdog group Public Knowledge, the Associated Press reported.
It details the role played by the CIA, the U.S. military, and other intelligence services in the coup, which took place in 2014.
Public Knowledge said the book will be published in the U of T’s campus library.
Chronicle.com reported the book is based on interviews with former and current CIA and military officials.
Former CIA Director David Petraeus, who was fired from the agency in 2014 after admitting he lied to the vice president about his activities in Afghanistan, was among those interviewed.
