Sixty Years Ago

BBC reports that CIA documents acknowledge its role in Iran’s 1953 coup:

The CIA has released documents which for the first time formally acknowledge its key role in the 1953 coup which ousted Iran’s democratically elected Prime Minister, Mohammad Mossadeq.

That monument to US arrogance was conceived by Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles, and executed by his brother, Allen Dulles, who was the Director of the CIA. Naturally they sucked the UK into their insanity.

The Dulles Duo had no regard for democracy or national sovereignty when it came to their crusade against the ‘godless terrorists of Communism’. [Well, and control of oil, of course :twisted:]

The CIA has issued blanket denials of any involvement in the Iranian coup for 60 years, but we are supposed to believe them about an Iranian nuclear weapons program … yeah, right.

And people who wonder why other countries hate the US should look at what the Dulles brothers got up to during the Eisenhower administration [1953-1961].
