Chad, officially the Republic of Chad, is a landlocked African country.
Chad allowed Libyan forces into its northern territory in order to protect it from insurgents. The U.S. and France (the former colonizer) bribed the Chadian government to remove these troops and replace them with the CIA-controlled Organization of African Unity.
The CIA installed Hissène Habré as the leader of Chad in June 1982 with using Chadian forces from Sudan. His secret police killed tens of thousands of people and tortured 200,000 until his fall in 1990. In 2000, while living in Senegal, he was indicted for torturing civilians.
