Hillary Clinton admits the USA manipulated the Iranian "green revolution"
The Voltaire Network articles by James Petras and Thierry Meyssan, denouncing the "green revolution" in Iran as a US-sponsored manipulation to destabilize that country, have swept across the world igniting considerable controversy. Several media rebuked these punditsí analyses alleging that their inherent "anti-americanism" prevented them from appreciating the great uprising of the Iranian people fighting for their freedom. As for the US, the Department of State denied being aware of any interference of any kind (in the photo: Tehran demonstrators brandishing posters ... in English). On that basis, the Republican opposition sharply criticized the inaction of the Obama Administration.
It now turns out that, in an interview by Farred Zacharia, broadcast by CNN on August 9, 2009, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton acknowledged what her department had theretofore denied: the United States played a very important role in the pseudo "green revolution" in Iran.
