    Excellent article. I wish more Americans knew the history of the US Government's aiding and abetting any number of dictatorships while spouting the rhetoric of freedom.

    While I love the freedoms the US affords me at home, even though those freedoms are getting less and less free and more and more dom (dumb) our foreign policy in my lifetime has always been expedience over principles. And the chickens are coming home to roost.

    Odd to think that something that happened when I was a baby is now of such importance. Tells me politicians aren't very good at fixing their problems.

    I wonder what would have happened if Mossadegh had NOT nationalized the oil wells. Ah, speculation.

    Oh, and one small error. Eisenhower was elected in 1952, took office in 1953.
