Yakko's Nations of the World but every time the *CIA tried to sponsor a coup or outright overthrow the state government it gets louder

I have to assume that the omission of Vietnam is due to some technicality?

By U.S. reckoning we were supporting the state government of South Vietnam (which the French created, don't pin that on us) against a foreign invasion.

Yeah it does seem to be lacking, and there isn't a definitive source for the list. But seems to be where the U.S. has in some way admit to involvement, and the involvement was specifically by the CIA.

Wasn't there a coup whereby the (incredibly corrupt) South Vietnamese civilian government was removed by the South Vietnamese military (not really much better) during the period of American intervention? I guess I'm not sure about CIA intervention in that, but it seems like the US was definitely involved in that coup and that the CIA was almost definitely involved even if they weren't the primary actor in that case?

EDIT: A quick look shows a startling number of coups in South Vietnam between 1963 and 1965 with various attempts in between and stretching back to 1960. Some of these definitely had CIA involvement. Kennedy and his administration apparently had advance warning of the 1963 coup (the most famous and crucial one) from the CIA who had an assigned liaison officer assigned to them, and who also provided funding to the coup leaders, though, like everything associated with South Vietnam, the whole thing was a gigantic disastrous mess.

Honestly when I first clicked it I was expecting it to just constantly ramp up and that would've been funnier.
