The CIA has for the first time acknowledged that the 1953 coup it backed in Iran that overthrew its prime minister and cemented the rule of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi was undemocratic.

CIA admits 1953 Iranian coup it backed was undemocratic Empty Re: CIA admits 1953 Iranian coup it backed was undemocratic

This article is classic CIA limited hangout with some further misdirection piled on top.

Of course the overthrow of Mossadegh was "undemocratic".  There was no vote, nor participation by the people of Iran.

The first rule of a limited hangout is don't dispute the obvious, but "admit" it as a way to help conceal far more damaging details through misdirection.

In the article, the CIA claims that the Iran coup was merely an exception to the majority of its clandestine operations in other countries that "bolstered popularly elected governments".

To which I say, name one. If a government is popularly elected, it typically doesn't need the CIA to clandestinely bolster it.  Uniformly around the world the CIA has instead acted to bolster US corporate interests *against* whatever it is the people of that country want.    

The article strangely spends two paragraphs on Ben Affleck's silly, Oscar winning caper movie about the rescue of some Americans after the coup. Which has nothing to say about the coup. A particularly lame misdirection.

The article does not mention the brilliant 2019 documentary by Iranian director Taghi Amirani that clearly explains how the coup was a joint UK-US operation.  https://coup53.com/. Watch it if you can.

Instead the article opines that there is so much yet unknown that seven decades later the coup is still "hotly debated". Cue Vince Salandria about the false mystery of the JFKA.
