Graphic novel CIA: Operation Ajax hits the iPad


Propaganda, eh? I think TiPb should stay unbiased and resist urges to promote Moore-like BS.

Propaganda? Perhaps. But probably best if you give it a read and decide for yourself. The events themselves are factual, the documents contained authentic. Don't go judging a book by it's digital cover...
