Published by AMERICAN FREE PRESS, CIA In Iran reveals in shocking detail a once-top-secret report by a CIA field agent working in Iran. The report, which reads like a detective novel, shows how U.S. and British operatives employed every dirty trick at their disposal, including bribery, murder and terrorism, to eliminate a government they could not control and replace it with one they thought they could. It is the true story of how, in 1953, American agents destroyed the democratically elected prime minister of Iran, Mohammad Mossadeq, and maneuvered the infamous "Shah of Iran," Reza Pahlavi, into power. The installation of the Shah led to Pahlavi's own ouster (he was feared by the majority of Iranians) and the creation of today's Iranian Islamic Republic.
the overthrow in Iran, U.S. intelligence repeatedly employed the same
formula in future coup attempts, including the disastrous Bay of Pigs,
but could never quite replicate its success. To this day, historians and
journalists contend the CIA is still utilizing what agents learned in
Tehran in 1953. Likewise, you can believe that foreign governments are
all more wary of U.S. scheming, thanks to the release of this report.
the rift between the United States and Iran, short of war, could not be
wider. AFP believes this book can help educate Americans about the
history of disastrous U.S. policies in the Mideast and will shed some
light on the seminal event that instigated the tragic divide between
American and Iran we are experiencing today. As this book went to press,
the neocons in Washington and the extremists in Israel were hard at
work inflaming U.S. public sentiment for war with Iran. Both Israel and
the U.S. government have threatened tactical nuclear strikes if Iran
does not submit to Western hegemony. Will this become the next chapter
in the book of Iran-U.S. relations?
Only time will tell . . .
Also includes five eye-opening appendices, 20 period photos, a full index and an introduction by AMERICAN FREE PRESS's own Christopher Petherick. A must-read to understand why Iran has, amongst all nations, been a thorn in the side of the New World Order.
