American Hand in Iran

Early, comprehensive account of CIA psyops to use Iran Elections to overthrow the Iran Regime, in a campaign that hasn't stopped since...

..."The goal of these strategies, Corsi announced at his event, was to incite mass protests against Iran's June 17 presidential elections and thus try to destabilize the regime.
