CIA declassifies more of "Zendebad, Shah!" – internal study of 1953 Iran
National Security Archive Electronic Briefing Book No.618

*View the posting*

*Washington, D.C., February 12, 2018 –* A partially-declassified CIA
history of the 1953 coup in Iran, released in late 2017, includes an-depth
critique of how the agency approached the operation, highlighting the
effects of bureaucracy and politics on the conduct of U.S. clandestine
activities. The CIA report, posted today by the George Washington
University-based National Security Archive, also reveals details about the
hatching of the covert plot as well as its execution.

Portions of the history, *“Zendebad, Shah!”*, have been made public twice
in 2000 and 2011 – but those versions were identical and provided only the
unclassified passages of the roughly 139-page document, withholding the
rest on secrecy grounds. Last year, in response to the most recent
Mandatory Declassification Review request by the National Security Archive,
the CIA conducted another re-review, this time producing considerably more
text, although still holding back a substantial amount.

Today’s posting includes side-by-side examples to illustrate some of the
differences in releases over the years.
