  2. "Secrets of History: The C.I.A. in Iran," by James Risen
    New York Times Special Report on the Iranian Coup of 1953, 16 Apr. 2000

    A classified Central Intelligence Agency report, which the agency said had been destroyed, has resurfaced. The internal history describes the C.I.A.'s involvement in Iran's 1953 coup.
    T he Central Intelligence Agency's secret history of its covert operation to overthrow Iran's government in 1953 offers an inside look at how the agency stumbled into success, despite a series of mishaps that derailed its original plans.
    Written in 1954 by one of the coup's chief planners, the history details how United States and British officials plotted the military coup that returned the shah of Iran to power and toppled Iran's elected Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh, an ardent nationalist.
    The document shows that:
    Britain, fearful of Iran's plans to nationalize its oil industry, came up with the idea for the coup in 1952 and pressed the United States to mount a joint operation to remove the prime minister.
    Iranians working for the C.I.A. and posing as Communists harassed religious leaders and staged the bombing of one cleric's home in a campaign to turn the country's Islamic religious community against Mossadegh's government.
