Here is the National Security Archive page summarizing and linking to newly released documents relevant to the 1953 coup against Iran.
I see it was just released today. You’re right on top of this. Back when Iran took the American hostages in ’79, I kept hoping the good Christian evangelical president Carter would publicly apologize for the CIA coup, paving the way for release of the hostages.
And now the good Christian president Obama could do the same thing. But I no longer hope for miracles.
And it’s so odd that he doesn’t do this, because I remember learning from Fox News that Obama was on an “apology tour” around the world, talking about America’s mistakes.
And it’s odd that Fox doesn’t talk about it.
They have a complex series of narratives to manage, and I’m not sure reporting on this would fit into any of them.
