An article written by Wayne Madsen, an investigative journalist in Washington USA, goes on to depict the involvement of DAI with the Central Intelligence Agency or the CIA.
The article goes onto say that DAI has a long history in supporting CIA operations, and that it was also accused of supporting the April 2002 coup against Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
The article says that the USAID and its contractors were heavily involved with anti-Chavez-activities in Colombia at the time of the 2002 coup.
According to the article, in 2002, USAID in Palestine, where DAI is also active, demanded detailed personal information on all the members of NGOs that received American funding.
The Palestinian press reported that the information, including personal and political opinions of NGO members, was to be turned over to the CIA and eventually, Mossad, to apply pressure on the NGOs to comply with U.S. and Israeli policies.
The article also says that Bolivian President Evo Morales tossed USAID out of his country, charging it with acting with the CIA to destabilize Bolivia and bring about a coup.
Wayne Madsen in his articles say that in 2009, the Pakistani press reported that USAID was by-passing the Pakistan ministries of Education and Information and providing direct educational assistance to Pakistani students.
