The Consortium News editor-in-chief was interviewed by former British MP George Galloway on the occasion of the 67th anniversary of the British and U.S. coup in Iran.
A new document released in time for last Wednesday’s 67th anniversary of the Iran coup shows that Britain, and not the United States, led the operation. The Truman administration refused to join it, believing that elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh would not allow communists to takeover, as Britain was arguing. Only after the election of Dwight Eisenhower and his appointment of Allen Dulles as CIA director in February 1953 did the U.S. take part in the coup six months later.
George Galloway spoke to Joe Lauria on his show Sputnik Orbiting the World With George Galloway about the new revelations on the Iran coup, as well as the history of post-war U.S. regime change operations.
