"In truth, in Iran as elsewhere in the Middle East today, America's sins were principally those of omission, not commission. Of course, the Eisenhower administration had toppled the popular government of Mohammed Mosaddegh in 1953 -- an event that has reached mythic proportions in Iranian minds."

Does anyone outside this country take Kenneth Pollack seriously?
In truth I don't take many American political writers very seriously, the liberal ones: the nationalist bias hiddden behind the false face of objectivity, reason or reasonableness.
I can't say the American left are any better.
