George W Bush raised $400 million for covert operations inside Iran

The White House has been reported to have secretly stepped up covert operations inside Iran with the aim of destablising its leadership.

President George W Bush requested and received funding of $400 million (£200 million) for the plan after he made a secret appeal to Congressional leaders last year.

The money is likely to be used for operations carried out by the CIA and other intelligence agencies, according to the New Yorker magazine.

  1. This is a clear breach in the UN charter “Respect for the principles of national sovereignty and non-interference in the internal affairs of States”.
    Still some countries never have to worry about punishment through UN resolutions and subsequent sanctions.
