Response to Ray Takeyh’s What Really Happened in Iran in Foreign Affairs
Ray Takeyh’s Ultra-revisionism
Calls coup “one of the most mythologized events in history”
On the day before the 57th anniversary of the 1953 coup, The Washington Post published an Op-Ed by Council on Foreign Relations fellow, author, and former senior advisor to the Obama administration on Iran policy, Ray Takeyh.
Takeyh’s astonishingly politicized narrative blamed the coup almost entirely on Dr. Mossadegh’s Islamic enemies, and dismissed the Western role as "largely inconsequential". This version actually contradicts Takeyh’s previous writings in books such as Hidden Iran.
Here is our letter to the editor, and Takeyh’s original article, Clerics responsible for Iran’s failed attempts at democracy.
