The 400 million dollars quote is not yet proven as fact, and the source, General Beig, could be seen to be suspect, it will be interesting to see if
this is in fact true. It certainly fits in with the small amount of research I have done (I have read a few books, that makes me an expert lol). I
wish the documents would be released proving the claim because I think people on this site are quite keen on accurate sources.
I once read an interesting book called 'All the Shah's Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror' by Stephen Kinzer. It gives
great detail of the 1953 CIA sponsored bloody coup, sadly with a great dollop of British help. If the OP story is true, then it would be seen to be a
continuation of this terrible policy of intervention in Iran.
The US government and alphabet agencies appear to be run by intelligent men who lack in wisdom, a truly shocking combination (IMHO).
Power and Equality,
Oh yeah, the 2000 US election was free and fair too, not.
