From the 1992 A&E series “Spies”. The 1/2 hour show deals with CIA operations in foreign countries. This segment is about CIA Directer Allen Dulles’ successful 1953 attempt to overthrow the pro-Soviet government of Mohammed Mossadegh — which had nationalized the Aramco oil company — and install the US-friendly Shah Reza Pahlevi. The CIA agent who masterminded this operation was Kermit Roosevelt, grandson of TR.
