TEHRAN - There is a valid possibility that CIA is playing a sinister role behind the scenes to exploit the current Iranian election protests to destabilise the country, observers said.
The CIA secret programme involves playing the media (especially websites) as well as having secret agents on the ground in Iran, they add.
In May 2007, ABC News reported that the CIA has received secret presidential (Bush) approval to mount a covert "black" operation to destabilize the Iranian government, citing officials in the intelligence community.

If they are let’s hope they do a better job than they did with Tora Bora. Imagine, losing the maps to the caves there when they “wanted”? to find Bin Laden.
God, I hope so.
They’re too busy with their real enemy. Dick Cheney.
I hope so. This is a golden opportunity for both the CIA and Mossad cooperate to bring some change.
The bad guys are not lying in Obama’s eyes. Bush’s fault!
Hopefully the CIA IS involved, but I doubt it. However, it would be a great opportunity to conduct a dis-information campaign, such as dropping hints that two very high members of the supreme council are on the payroll. They’ll eat themselves over it.
I wonder what Soros thinks? Is HE involved? Obama hurt the protestors a lot by claiming the CIA was involved in coup before. It was stupid.
Sounds like mullah propaganda to me.
I hope not.
Because we will not back up the students when the tanks start rolling in.
I certainly hope so!
I agree with your assessment. Probably the majority of those partaking in these demonstrations could care less about what the US might desire for their country. They are demonstrating either because they feel they where hoodwinked by the current presidential administration and the bearded ones, or for some perhaps they are just tired of being ruled by the hard core Islamist leadership in general filtering down from the top Ayatollah through all seats of government and special committees, or a combination there of.
