Oliver Stone: CIA Fingerprints All Over Ukraine Coup

Famed Hollywood director Oliver Stone created a media storm this week with his statements about the February coup that ousted democratically elected Ukrainian leader Victor Yanukovych.

Just as the NSA did not cease, but rather increased, its spying on the rest of us after the Snowden revelations.
