Iranian Story Replayed



KUDOS to Ted Rudow III ("A Familiar Story," Posts, Aug. 4). He told the story of capitalism at work. Our government had the Shah in its pocket, and so as not to lose that position, the CIA made short shrift of Mosaddegh. I was in junior high school when it happened, and learned my first lesson about American politics and our lip service to it.  Unfortunately, that scenario played out many times in the 20th century, and still continues. Remember what happened to the last democratically elected leader of Haiti? He was kidnapped and exiled. The story goes on.
