Former Spook Central boss, Gen. Micheal Hayden, told Fox News yesterday Iran’s latest propaganda effort is offensive.
Gen. Hossein Moghadam, a top Republican Guard official, told the Associated Press Iran has dug mass graves for the bodies of U.S. soldiers in the event Israel and the United States attack. Moghadam said the Republican Guard dug mass graves in the 1980s for Iraqi soldiers when Iran was at war with Iraq under Saddam Hussein, an effort supported by the United States, Israel, and the banksters. The western-instigated war ultimately cost Iran and Iraq around a million dead.
Considering the CIA’s successful efforts to destabilize Iran, Hayden’s comments are grotesquely ironic.
In 1953, the CIA launched Operation Ajax, a coup designed to overthrow Iran’s democratically elected president, Muhammad Mosaddeq. The CIA promptly installed the monarch Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. The Shah’s secret police, SAVAK, were trained by the CIA and Israel’s Mossad and were as brutal and terrifying as the Nazi Gestapo in World War II. The CIA provided the Shah and his sadistic secret police with lists of communists and other political dissidents to be tortured and assassinated.
By the late 1970s, the CIA was actively working to depose the Shah and install a radical Islamic government in Iran. In 1980, students in Iran revealed a memorandum from then National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski to Secretary of State Cyrus Vance recommending the destabilization of the Iranian government by using Iran’s neighbors. F. William Engdahl (A Century of War: Anglo-American Oil Politics and the New World Order) and Robert Dreyfuss (Devil’s Game: How the United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist Islam) have provided details on this destabilization process. The authors suggest the CIA planned to use Iranian Islamists to destroy the communist forces inside the country, support the CIA’s Mujahadeen (later al-Qaeda) in Afghanistan and spread Islamic fundamentalism in the Soviet Union.

Rockefeller operative Brzezinski met with Saddam Hussein — who would later become the devil incarnate — in July 1980 in Amman, Jordan, to discuss joint efforts to destabilize Iran. For all his cooperation with the CIA, Saddam would suffer a particularly vicious destabilization program that would result in the murder of more than a million of his fellow countryman, including 500,000 children.
In addition, according to author George Crile, the CIA actively supported Iraq during the Iran-Iraq war (while Israel covertly supported Iran) in an effort to destroy both countries and create a staggering body count. “We didn’t want either side to have the advantage. We just wanted them to kick the shit out of each other,” said Ed Juchniewicz, Associate Deputy Director for Operations at the CIA at the time, Crile states.

By 2007, the CIA was engaged in black operations inside Iran. In addition to propaganda, misinformation, and financial manipulation secretly signed off on by then president Bush, the agency began working with terrorist groups inside the country. Former UN inspector Scott Ritter and others have documented how the CIA worked with MEK (Mojahedin-e Khalq-e Iran) to unleash a wave of bombings inside Iran.
In addition, the U.S. backed (as documented by Rep. Dennis Kucinich) an effort by the Party for a Free Life in Kurdistan to kill Iranian security forces. In November 2006, journalist Seymour Hersh in The New Yorker supported this claim, stating that the American military and the Israelis were giving the group equipment, training, and targeting information in order to create internal pressures in Iran.
Under the Bush effort to destabilize Iran, Ahwazi Arab and Baluchi groups and other dissident organizations have received ample U.S. largess (Seymour Hirsch’s sources say Bush set aside close to a half billion dollars for the covert terrorist campaign). Since 2008, the scope and severity of the Iran destabilization campaign has increased significantly and includes the participation of not only the CIA but also the Pentagon’s the Joint Special Operations Command.
Hayden, as former CIA boss, is well aware of this sordid history, but his task is to mount the corporate media and further demonize Iran. The attack Iran campaign is now in high gear. Hayden’s propaganda is designed to inculcate the American people to the coming reality of dead babies and further mass destruction in Central Eurasia, a plan long ago sketched out by Zbigniew Brzezinski and the intelligentsia of the New World Order.
