USA in Iran (SAVAK)

In Iran, the Shah (king), Reza Pahlavi, sets up a secret police agency (SAVAK). This agency is managed by the USA CIA at all levels of daily operation, including the choice and organization of personnel, selection and operation of equipment, and the running of agents.

SAVAK's torture methods include electric shock, whipping, beating, inserting broken glass and pouring boiling water into the rectum, putting weights to the testicles, and the extraction of teeth and nails.

Iran under the unelected Shah becomes a USA ally and a base for spy operations against the USSR.
