Could The Iranian Protests Lead Up to Another CIA-Directed Coup?

January 3, 2018 The Truth Factory 1

The mainstream media is ignoring the history of US meddling in Iran, beginning in 1953, when the CIA and the UK overthrew the Iranian government in a coup known as ‘Operation Ajax’, after the populist leader, Mosaddegh, nationalized its oil fields. De-classified documents reveal that the CIA bused in protesters and paid pro-Shah mobsters to stage riots. The Shah was put in power and was later overthrown in 1979. Former US President, Jimmy Carter, staged a failed coup, and 52 American citizens were taken hostage. The current protests in Iran could be leading toward another coup.
