65 Years Ago Today, the CIA Conspired with the UK to Overthrow Iran on Behalf of Big Oil

• https://www.activistpost.com by Matt Agorist

What was once considered a conspiracy theory is now a fact as the government has since admitted to carrying out Operation Ajax that was planned by the CIA in conjunction with MI6 in the UK to exploit the Iranian people and steal their oil on behalf of the  Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC) – the British state-owned oil company established in 1908 with this objective in mind and the forerunner of today's global oil conglomerate BP.

As TFTP reported last year, the State Department released a trove of documents that give insight into the CIA's role in the 1953 coup d'état that led to the overthrow of Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadeq.

The newly declassified documents, titled "Foreign Relations of the United States, 1952-1954, Iran, 1951–1954," provide a notable difference from the State Department's 1989 version of the coup, which left out any involvement from American and British intelligence.
