America's "Secret Government" - Its Tampering in Iran and other covert wars

America has operated by a rogue and extra-constitutional government since the revolution that is more tamely called the "Civil War". About 20 years ago this report was broadcast to show the reality and danger of it, and it is most relevant to today. This is an excerpt, and after the introduction, and discussion of the historic Cold War against the Soviets after WWII, it goes directly into America's covert, primarily CIA, operations, especially in Iran. It also shows how America helped to arm Iran, as well as foment internal revolutions, and counter-revolutions. This sets the context for much of today's controversies, yet this context is not related on Network News. It also shows how America's presidents have consistently lied to justify wars or secret operations.

" I was not involved in the September 11 attacks in the United States nor did I have knowledge of the attacks.... What is this? Is it not that there exists a government within the government in the United States? That secret government must be asked as to who carried out the attacks.." (25)
