In the "Decline and fall" section, Wikipedia used at least to note the 'claim' that the coup received support from the CIA. By May 2013, it instead noted that "Nkrumah believed that the CIA had supported the coup, but this accusation was based off forged evidence given to him by the KGB. No documentary evidence exists implicating the United States in the coup."
The claim that "no documentary evidence exists implicating the United States in the coup" is belied by US government published documents that (even in the unredacted parts) state that they were seeking to end Nkrumah's rule, and were discussing a coup d'etat.
