BP By Any Other Name – The Anglo-Iranian Oil Dispute – 1951

Crooks & Liars- By Gordonskene Friday Jul 30, 2010 7:00pm

When Iran, under Mohammed Mossadegh nationalized Iran’s oil production in March of 1951, it put a crimp in the relations between Iran and Britain, who had enjoyed massive profits from drilling operations going back to 1909 and who, by 1950 had come to rely (as did the U.S.) on Middle East oil for 70% of its consumption (even back then). After a hotly contested dispute, which brought in the League of Nations to re-negotiate in 1933, Iran got slightly more of a percentage and by 1946 had negotiated to get 30% profits to Britain’s 70%.After Mossadegh took over and nationalized Iran’s oil production, Britain quickly attempted to negotiate a 50/50 split, but Mossadegh would have none of it. The dispute between Britain and Iran went on for two years. So on August 22, 1953, with the help of our very own CIA the Mossadegh government was overthrown and The Shah was reinstated. Shortly after, Britain and Iran were negotiating oil.

And shortly after, The Anglo-Iranian Oil Company became British Petroleum. And the rest, as they say, is history.

This clip comes from a CBS newscast of August 21, 1951 when the negotiations had broken down.

Group finds more than a dozen lies in Coulter’s latest book

Raw Story- John Byrne
Published: Monday January 5, 2009

The progressive media watchdog Media Matters for America delivered a scathing 6,000-word rebuke to conservative superstar Ann Coulter, accusing her of lying on more than a dozen occasions in her new book, Guilty: Liberal “Victims” and Their Assault on America.

Coulter has of late appeared to be something of a mockery of herself. Her support among conservatives has waned, though her prolific publishing prowess continues.

Among the slew of apparent lies in Coulter’s book — which Media Matters labels as “falsehoods,” includes claims Coulter makes about Sen. John Kerry by the so-called “Swift Boat Veterans for Truth; and assertion that Fox News has “never been caught promoting a fraud;” and that President-elect Barack Obama was referring to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin when he said, “you know, you can put lipstick on a pig; it’s still a pig.”

Huffington Post |  Danny Shea   |   January 5, 2009 05:06 PM

***UPDATE*** 8:55AM
Coulter appeared on CBS’s The Early Show where she told anchor Harry Smith that he was her favorite for having her on this morning after The Today Show had canceled her. Smith allowed Coulter to rant, but then pushed her on claims of right-wing victimization and urged her to “take a breath.” He also called her “goofy” and “sophomoric.”

***UPDATE*** 11:10PM Coulter was a guest on the Fox News show “Hannity and Colmes” tonight, where she harshly criticized NBC for canceling her planned appearance on the “Today” show. The controversial author accused the network of orchestrating a “set up to block me from other TV shows.”
