First let me thank you for your comments. All is fine except for the above subject.
the above part of your comment indicates that you are not (absolutley not) familiar with Iranian affairs, Iranian Constitution. in entire life of Constitutional life of Iran up-till 1979 there was no Prime Minister Election. no such thing exists in the constitution. Monarch hand picks the PM introduces to the Parliament, the parliament should or should not accept the credentials of the man then he becomes PM.

in August 19, 1953 Mossadegh disolved the Parliament, by way of "Referendum" that was his invention no such option made available to anyone in the Cabinet or Parliament conducting "referendum" he did it anyway, using scandals, despotism, he even acted a theatrical faint on the Parliament's floor. Upon nulification of the Parliament, his (PM's) credentials nullified as well. he now is no longer PM. there is no Parliament to support him. that was his mistake. Shah ordered Col. Nassiri delivering Monarch's letter that he is ousted. he (Mossadegh) while he is no body, arrests Col Nassiri while this person is on duty. one cannot arrest a messenger on duty. you cannot arrest the police officer when he delivers the Court order to your door.

In the mean time because of this Washington orders Kermit Roosevelt to leave the country. he sent his men out he was on his way to Iraq that people noticed Mossadegh is building coalition with Communist Toudeh Party, elements of Communist Russia. (USSR). therefore in fear that similar to the Lenin style mass murder is on its way, came to the street, joined to the Army asked for the Return of Shah who left country for Italy. that was not CIA's work. USA's constitution does not allow anyone interfering in the internal affairs of any other nation..

Please read Loy Henderson's web page (Ambassador to Iran back in 1953).
