OK...tell me where he is wrong in these three points.
The US didn't "interfered" or "propped up" anything.
In 1953, newly elected President Dwight Eisenhower feared that Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh’s actions reflected pro-communist sympathies. To block further Soviet influence in Iran, Eisenhower organized the overthrow of the democratically elected Mossadegh with the help of the British secret service. Operation Ajax – led by TR’s grandson Kermit Roosevelt – successfully removed Mossadegh from office and installed a pro-American leader, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi – the “Shah.”http://www.gvsu.edu/hauenstein/ask-gleaves-a-road-over-rough-terrain-us-iranian-relations-849.htm
In March 1985, the Reagan administration issued National Security Decision Directive 166,29 a secret plan to escalate covert action in Afghanistan dramatically:
Abandoning a policy of simple harassment of Soviet occupiers, the Reagan team decided secretly to let loose on the Afghan battlefield an array of U.S. high technology and military expertise in an effort to hit and demoralize Soviet commanders and soldiers....
One of the first non-Afghan volunteers to join the ranks of the mujahideen was Osama bin Laden, a civil engineer and businessman from a wealthy construction family in Saudi Arabia, with close ties to members of the Saudi royal family. Bin Laden recruited 4,000 volunteers from his own country and developed close relations with the most radical mujahideen leaders. He also worked closely with the CIA, raising money from private Saudi citizens.http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Afghanistan/Afghanistan_CIA_Taliban.htmlHow Reagan Armed Saddam with Chemical Weapons
The NYT "revealed" that in the 1980s, the administration of US President Ronald Reagan covertly provided "critical battle planning assistance at a time when American intelligence knew that Iraqi commanders would employ chemical weapons in waging the decisive battles of the Iran-Iraq war". http://www.counterpunch.org/dixon06172004.html
