For many years I have known and the government has denied that the CIA had over thrown the freely elected government of
installed the Shah in 1953. They were also responsible for the overthrow of
many other elected governments in Central and South
America. Who knows where else?
Now actual government documents prove I was correct and the CIA admits their actions. I think that it is outrageous that our government worked to oust elected forgin governments and set up dictators around the world. In a very real sense our CIA is the root cause of our problems today in the Middle East and most important
Iran. If we had promoted democratic
governments then we would not be having the trouble we have now. It makes me
wonder if the CIA is behind what is happening in Egypt now.
The CIA should be an information gathering only organization and not the secret dirty tricks establishment it has been.
