Hersh’s bombshell

Noted journalist Seymour Hersh last week reported on a story the corporate Nazi media will not… a top US General actually has lived up to his Oath and ignoring the President and has led a plot in secret to try and stop a repeat of Operation Ajax in 1953* to protect Syrian dictator Assad and Bring Russia Into Syria War.

The story, first appearing on the website Alternet, reported Hersh, whose sources include top senior aides to the Joint Chiefs of Staff, also told how on Turkey’s Islamic extremist president Recep Erdoğan LIED to the White House by siding and arming ISIS and similar “militias in Syria, in a gambit for Turkey to emerge as a regional power akin to the Ottoman Empire.”

“According to Hersh, the president’s policy—that Assad must leave office, and that moderate rebels in Syria could be armed in order to defeat him—was built on major flaws. That was the conclusion Dempsey and the various intelligence teams that prepared reports for the Joint Chiefs made” the website Russia Insider reported.

Hersh writes, “The Joint Chiefs felt that a direct challenge to Obama’s policy would have ‘had a zero chance of success.’ So in the autumn of 2013 they decided to take steps against the extremists without going through political channels, by providing US intelligence to the militaries of other nations, on the understanding that it would be passed on to the Syrian army and used against the common enemy, Jabhat al-Nusra and Islamic State.”

Those nations were Germany, Israel and Russia, which all had reasons for cooperating with Assad. “Germany feared what might happen among its own population of six million Muslims if Islamic State expanded; Israel was concerned with border security; Russia had an alliance of very long standing with Syria, and was worried by the threat to its only naval base on the Mediterranean, at Tartus.”

And just recently, Hersh himself spoke to Alex Jones about this.

*–This is a major bombshell and is just another edition of the 1953 US and British-led coup in Iran in 1953 dubbed Operation Ajax to take out Iranian president Mohammad Mossadegh.

In 2013, Russia Today reported on the 60th Anniversary of this coup with information the CIA had DECLASSIFIED.

RT reported

In April 1951 Iranians democratically elected the head of the National Front party, Dr. Mohammad Mossadegh, as prime minister. Mossadegh moved quickly to nationalize the assets in Iran of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (the forerunner of today’s BP) a step that brought his government into confrontation with Britain and the US.

Britain’s MI6 military intelligence then teamed up with the CIA and planned, elaborated and carried out a coup that ousted Mossadegh in August 1953 and returned Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi to power.

The first attempted coup failed after Mossadegh got wind of the conspiracy, but American and British intelligence services in Iran then improvized a second stage of the coup, pulling pro-Shah forces together and organizing mass protests on August 19, 1953. These protests were immediately supported by army and police. Mossadegh’s house was destroyed after a prolonged assault by pro-coup forces, including several tanks.

Mossadegh was replaced with Iranian general Fazlollah Zahedi, who was handpicked by MI6 and the CIA. Mossaddegh was later sentenced to death, but the Shah never dared to carry out the sentence. Mossadegh died in his residence near Tehran in 1967.

The Shah’s pro-Western dictatorship continued for 27 years and ended with the Islamic Revolution of 1979, which paved the way for today’s Iran, where anti-American sentiments remain strong. The 1953 coup still casts a long shadow over Iranian-US relations.

The story tried to gain US attention when Ron Paul, then TX Republican Congressman and presidential candidate talked to Bill O’Reilly of Fox News.  But when Paul tried to bring up the facts behind Ajax even though Paul did not mention it by name, O’Reilly went on a neocon hissy fit.
