In Bed With the Enemy: Foreign Leaders CIA Helped Bring to Power
Brazil has been rocked by massive political turmoil on a scale unseen in decades, with many calling Dilma Rousseff's removal from power a coup that could be traced to Washington.

Other prime cases in point include Iran and Guatemala.

In 1951, the Iranian government nationalized the British owned Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC) after the AIOC refused to revise the terms of its lopsided contracts with Tehran. In response, the UK and the US devised a plan, known as Operation Ajax, to remove Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh from power.
