More admissions from our spooky friends in Langley
Just days after admitting Area 51 exists, the CIA now admits their role in the 1953 coup in Iran, which is at the root of much modern international… mischief, let’s say. A larger example of blowback is hard to imagine — the overthrow of a popularly elected president to install an authoritarian monarch at the behest of a corporation (Anglo-Iranian Oil Co) annoyed because Iran nationalized their oil industry was probably the biggest domino leading to modern militant Islam (the other being the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan).
One starts to wonder what further soul-baring is coming, and what they’re hoping to slip under the radar amidst other revelations (however widely publicly believed before they admitted them).
Oh, and Anglo-Iranian Oil? Today they’re known as BP. Make of that what you will.
