Last year, the CIA publicly admitted for the first time that it was behind the notorious 1953 coup against Iran’s democratically elected government of Mohammad Mosaddeq, in documents that also showed how the British government tried to block the release of information about its own involvement in his overthrow.
The covert action in 1953 by MI6 and the CIA toppled Mosaddeq in retaliation for his decision to nationalize British oil assets in Iran.
