from brasschecktv.com: "State of Siege" was made 40 years ago and is a surprisingly difficult film to find. Maybe that's because it shows in vivid detail how foreign police states operate and how the CIA helps them along. But they wouldn't do any of that stuff here, would they? Scenes from a very hard-to-find movie made in 1972: "State of Siege" It's a fictionalized account of a true story. Using an "aid" program as a cover, the CIA trained police officers throughout South America to fight "subversives" using of torture, assassination, and police-staged explosives to blame on terrorists. Of course, they'd never do that here.
