All The Shah's Men (part 7- conclusions and documents)

It has been a while since I had started writing on this matter which has been subjected to misinformation and disinformation activities for manipulation of Iranian people and Iranian political establishment (inside and outside the governing system) by foreign intelligence agencies. The so called Iranian "leftist" minded intellectuals and the hard core members of nationalist groups like "Iranian National Front" (or Jebhe Melli) have been the easiest targets/victims of this manipulation for more than half a century. This matter in fact was one of the main issues which created an atmosphere of suspicion and distrust between different groups in Iranian elite and intellectuals to provide the grounds for destruction of political establishment and creation of chaos and instability in Iran so that certain goals regarding oil and destabilization of the region could be achieved in order to advance certain global agendas.

In accordance with such agendas, Central Intelligence Agency of The United States and US political establishments, have been capitalizing on keeping Iranian people away from the realities and truth about the events which resulted in bringing American oil companies into Iranian oil business and taking away a big portion of the profit from British oil companies. Nationalization of Iranian oil which has been influenced by Americans from the beginning, was in fact the main operation which required co-operation of Iranian government and all available communication documents from US Intelligence agencies and political leadership indicate that an oil settlement between Iranian government and British was of highest importance and they counted on the government of PM Mosadegh to accomplish such task.

Failure of PM Mosadegh in resolving the oil dispute with British, had created a tense situation in the country and brought about much economic hardship for Iranian people and finally, it costed PM Mosadegh most of his support among the closest allies as well as among Iranian general population. Available documents indicate that although US government was aware that the referendum to dissolve the Iranian Parliament was illegal, they showed a positive attitude towards it and were hoping that Mosadegh's government would survive for the rest of the year and after that. These documents also indicate that US government was concerned about rising influence of Tudeh Party in the government and in the society and they had made preparations to start a "FREE IRAN" government in southern part of the country with the help of tribal elements in case Tudeh Party attempted to take over the government through a coup.

Documents also show that, although Americans were aware of Tudeh Party influence and infiltration of Iranian military (and they knew some of high ranking officers by name), they had no idea about the extent of that infiltration. All their concern was about keeping Iranian oil away from hands of Soviets and they were prepared to split Iran in half if they needed to in order to achieve that.

Since the bogus story of Kermit Roosevelt has been published to portray him as champion of Iranian oil settlement, US government have tried in many ways to (indirectly) give some sort of credibility to this James Bond story of a lifeless loser whose name (for kinship with President Roosevelt) was the only source of credibility that he had. These attempts were done through publishing the story in magazines, publishing books by questionable characters and offering meaningless apologies to mislead Iranians of the real meddling in Iranian affairs which they had done to prepare the grounds for establishment of Islamic ruling system in Iran.

It goes without saying that if Iranian political system (prior to revolution) along with Iranian opposition were not as flawed as they were, accomplishing such tasks would not be as easy if not impossible so in fact, most of the blame goes to Iranians for not being vigilant enough and do not stand on guard for their own civilization and their own way of life.

In the past, I have mentioned that American CIA has declared many times that they do not have documents regarding the events in 1953 because of the clean up operation which they do on regular basis. At the same time, they have declined to declare that the bogus story that was published by New York Magazine and George Washington University and authored by Donald Wilber, was NOT a document from CIA and had nothing to do with CIA.

In previous segment, I published some parts of one document related to CIA covert operation in Guatemala in the year 1954 to show how a real CIA document looks like and how it is written. The "PBSUCCESS" document which was partly presented here, is in fact over a thousand pages and I have all of that in my possession. In this segment I publish some parts of a few CIA documents regarding the affairs in Iran from the year 1949 to 1953 including an hourly report regarding events in August 17/1953. I have to mention that hundreds of pages of such documents are available from the archives of US government and obtainable under FOIA.

The first four images are from a CIA document of the year 1949. Please pay attention to the name of agency, emblem, date and title which is clearly in the view on the first page of the document. In second page we read about distribution of document and name of departments and people who receive a copy of the report. This list includes: the president, state department, NSC and head of the US army etc...
The rest is about stability of Iranian government and its relations with Soviet Union.

There are other documents of the same year in which CIA has provided detailed reports about Tudeh Party and its membership from which, here, I bring a single page which indicate membership of the party from different sectors of society including 500 in military which I believe is just an underestimate.

The next 8 images are from a CIA report in 1951 (just bear in mind that there are many other reports and documents in between, from 1949 to 1951 and afterwards). Again, please pay attention to CIA emblem, name of agency and title and date on first page of the document. This document has been published in year 1951 which was the year that late Dr. Mosadegh had started to work as Prime Minister of Iran. The document is mostly about oil related matters. Many different issues are discussed in this document including taking over of oil industry by Iranian government and possibility of landing of British forces in southern Iranian provinces to confront the situation.

The point in publishing these documents is to show that it is impossible that CIA has destroyed only one particular document to make room in their archives. CIA has never destroyed any document and all the documents for any kind of operations that they had planned or implemented, are available and obtainable from their archives. I have already published some of the documents related to their covert operation in Guatemala and the absence of any documents regarding the bogus so called "operation tpajax" is the best evidence that all claims regarding such operation was just a LIE by a couple of political charlatans to scam Iranian government and foreign oil companies. This matter of course was milked to the fullest by United States government to enforce their agenda and manipulate Iranian opposition to destabilize and destroy the existing political establishment at that time.

In October 1952, CIA made a report about "Prospects For Survival of Mosadegh's Regime In Iran". According to conclusions of this report, Mosadegh's government would survive for the next 6 months at least and CIA predicts that if Kashani would come to power then it would cause deterioration of Iran and final take over by Tudeh Party.

Following is the first page of NIE report from January of 1953. This report is about probable developments in Iran through out the year 1953 Please pay attention to the information clearly shown on the page:

And finally, here we have a report from August 1953 about the events of August 17th/1953

And the last image is single page cable communication of CIA, reporting to Washington regarding the "genuine" uprising of the people against Mosadegh's government on August 19th (28 Mordad) because they had nothing to do with it:

I think this should be enough to convince any unbiased reader of capabilities and effects of CIA regarding the events in August of 1953, although there are tons more document to show how CIA and American officials including President Obama, LIED to mislead Iranians regarding the roles that they played in bringing Islamic ruling system in Iran which has caused much grief and damages to Iranian nation. Please read my articles on Islamic Revolution in Iran for more information.

All The Shah's Men (Part 6)

Before I continue with the stories................. , I like to bring a few more details regarding the events in 1953 and the fall of late PM Mossadegh and also regarding the oil matters. There is a misconception, mainly because of misinformation by Central Intelligence Agency of the United States, regarding existence of any document related to Iran in the years of confrontation between Iranian government and British oil company over nationalization of Iranian oil industry. It has been said by the agency that CIA documents related to Iran from the year 1953 have been "cleaned up" as per a routine process to make room for other newer materials. This turns out to be nothing but a fib as we can find many of documents from CIA and State Department of USA, not only from the year 1953 but also from much earlier than that still available.

The truth is that there is nothing in all available documents to confirm anything related to story of Kim Roosevelt and Donald Wilber. There are plenty of NIE documents which indicate American intelligence agency monitored the situation in Iran and they were even concerned at one point that a coup might have helped Tudeh party to take the power out of the hands of PM Mossadegh and establish a communist system in Iran. For that reason, according to documents, US government had tried to prepare the grounds for establishment of a non-communist government in southern part of Iran with the help of tribal elements whom they were in contact with.

This matter shows that they did not trust anyone from Iranian army to work with in case their strategic plans to enter in the business of Iranian oil through the process of negotiation with Iranian government did not come to proper conclusion. All the evidences from secret US government documents show that they expected that Mosadegh's government would stay in power for "foreseeable future". Americans were aware that British government also would not be willing to change their stance after the last offer which was presented to PM Mosadegh by US and British governments but he declined.

Moreover, Americans were worried about increasing influence of Tudeh party in Mosadegh's government as he had lost all the support from his conventional allies in Iranian political circles. Even with all of this, American government had no plan to do anything against PM Mosadegh because they were happy with the outcome of the efforts up to that point which was bringing US corporations into Iranian oil business negotiation.

In this part, I publish parts of the bogus document which has been fed to the public by NY Magazine and George Washington University as a genuine document regarding the events of 1953 and let the readers compare that with a genuine CIA document about the "PBSUCCESS operation" (more than one thousand pages are available) in Guatemala in the year 1954. As I have mentioned before, while one can find all kinds of information including names, dates, signatures on a genuine CIA document, all such information is missing in the bogus document which, I believe, has been updated more than once by forgers. We can clearly see the names of Dulles and Wisner who indicate their approval for the operation PBSUCCESS.

And later, before I conclude this article, I will present some of the real CIA documents regarding the events in Iran during years of 1952 and 1953 and especially during the month of August of 1953. It is unbelievable how CIA would lie ( I believe it would be naive if we expected otherwise) about "routine cleanup" of the files to cover up the absence of any document regarding the bogus "tpajax operation" which had been claimed by a couple of American political charlatans to extort money from Iranians as well as from American oil companies.

The complete document is available at George Washington University

Following is a few pages of the genuine CIA document about operation PBSUCCESS in Guatemala in Year 1954

Here is a couple of pictures of Donald Wilber, the author of bogus document who lived in Middle East region for a period of time since 1930's.
The first picture has been taken in America in 1987. There is a mark above Don Wilber's head. In second picture, Mr. Wilber is dressed in Arabic outfit which he used most of the time when he was in Egypt. He also used cowboy outfit in other occasions and loved to appear like Indiana Jones!

In next part, I will post some of the real documents of US government which exist in their archives and indicate they had no prior information regarding the events of August 1953 other than some general ideas of the situation.

Will Continue...
