In 1953, a coup d'etat in Iran was carefully organised by the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States together with the British Secret Intelligence Service. The CIA Director 'approved a budget of $1 million which could be used by the Tehran Station in any way that would bring about the fall' of Premier Mossadeq. Once the deed had been accomplished, the CIA commissioned a history of its successful operation to change the Iranian regime. It is published here in full.This document is crucial to an understanding of Iranian history: but it also has some considerable relevance to the constitutional history of the United Kingdom. Here we have a short guide through the labyrinths of the world where things are not what they seem to be. Yet, the parallels with the current confrontation with Iran are all too clear.
