CIA Admits Staging Iran Coup in 1953
60 years to the day after Iranian Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadeq was ousted in a coup d’etat, the CIA has finally admitted that it organized the action alongside the British Secret Intelligence Service.
The US and UK conspired to have the democratically-elected Mossadeq replaced with General Fazlollah Zahedi in order to strengthen the position of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.
The Shah went on to repress political opposition and used his US-trained secret police service, SAVAK, to brutally crack down on suspected dissidents.
The rest, as they say, is history. See links to official documents beneath the video screen on the page linked below.
