Mossadegh Still Formidable Political Threat In Iran Despite Indictment On Treason Charge | INS, Oct. 7, 1953

This ran in the editorial section of newspapers across the country between around December 7 and December 23, 1953. Among the other titles: Gorgeous George...Here’s a Match and Mossadegh Would Get Top Billing.

[United Nations diplomats Henry Cabot Lodge (U.S.) and Russian envoy Andrei Vishinsky.]
