The content was cleverly changed , with the aim of sowing division among the revolutionary camp. To know fake from true, you had to almost know the author. This must have needed large resources. In the days before digital batch printing. You needed a printing press. Where was this printing press? It must have needed an infrastructure inside Iran. The attack against the traditional socialists in Iran, was sudden and brutal and well organised. The reactionary right wing, were quick to organise their ranks, after the fall of the Shah. The list of SAVAK members, were never published. Never underestimate the right wing. Did they have outside help, the CIA?
You are touching on a very important point. People have this cartoon view of regime change and geopolitical actions. Even if the
Shah was a US stooge that does not mean he was the only one. You can bet your last coin that the USA has contingency plans
and actual deployed human resources to enact them if one of their quislings is about to fall. You can see this in Armenia and Georgia
where the fall of some clown does not mean restoration of non-bootlick government. The Americans must have tried to use the Iranian
right to try to stage manage the fall of the Shah but did not succeed.
It is common for there not to be a total purge of the previous regime elements in any revolution or turnover. So the Iranian government
post 1979 must have had US assets trying to worm their way from the inside. And the new rulers often try to use assets of the previous
regime to gain and retain power. So I am not surprised that SAVAK members would remain secret, since the new order was using them.
As you can see this creates a grey zone where US assets are able to operate inside Iran post 1979.
Belorus is already infested with NATzO assets who will try to engineer the downfall of Lukashenko. The idiot let them gain this
foothold by really thinking he was some serious dictator and not a clown. Ukraine is an even better example of NATzO moving
all of its ducks into place for a total turnover.
