Iran Thwarts CIA-backed Regime Change Plot

Iran's Judiciary Spokesman, Alireza Jamshidi, said on Tuesday that authorities have arrested four Iranian nationals who were plotting a regime change at the behest of the Bush administration.

According to Jamshidi, the four were paid by the White House, the State Department and the CIA, to expand their network and topple the Iranian government -- irrespective of the Algiers Accord.

Under the 1981 treaty signed between the US and Iran, Washington is obliged to refrain from interfering in Iran's 'internal affairs'.

Washington, nevertheless, has not ceased its 'regime change' project in Iran and has reportedly appropriated more than $120 million to fund the initiative.

Investigative journalist, Seymour Hersh, revealed in July that the US Congress had secretly agreed to US President, George W. Bush's $400-million funding request for a major escalation in covert operations inside Iran.§ionid=351020101

Two major wars, killing hundreds of thousands, obviously ain't enough.
