Another of the operations that emboldened the CIA to operate outside of Kennedy's authority was its success in overthrowing the Leftist government of Jacobo Arbenz. Arbenz had come to power promising the people land. In order to do this, he nationalized land owned by American corporate giant United Fruit. In response, United Fruit turned to the CIA for help in removing Arbenz from power.
