OMG I can't believe you fell for the $400 million CIA party orchestrated to destabilize Iran. The CIA was given authorization and was allotted funds two years ago to carry out this plan. Do you think they just blew the $400 million on strippers and beer??
George W Bush 'raised $400 million for action against 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.
The appeal for funds "was focused on undermining Iran's nuclear
ambitions and trying to undermine the government through regime change"
said the magazine.
A source cited the contents of the appeal -
known as a Presidential Finding - as involving "working with opposition
groups and passing money".
Bush sanctions 'black ops' against Iran

President George W Bush has given the CIA approval to launch covert
"black" operations to achieve regime change in Iran, intelligence
sources have revealed.
Mr Bush has signed an official document endorsing CIA plans for a
propaganda and disinformation campaign intended to destabilise, and
eventually topple, the theocratic rule of the mullahs.
"Iranians in America have links with their families at home, and they are a good two-way source of information," he said.
CIA will also be allowed to supply communications equipment which would
enable opposition groups in Iran to work together and bypass internet
censorship by the clerical regime.
The plans, which
significantly increase American pressure on Iran, were leaked just days
before a meeting in Iraq tomorrow between the US ambassador, Ryan
Crocker, and his Iranian counterpart.
Was the election really a fraud??
The Iranian People Speak

The election results in Iran may reflect the will of the Iranian
people. Many experts are claiming that the margin of victory of
incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was the result of fraud or
manipulation, but our nationwide public opinion survey
of Iranians three weeks before the vote showed Ahmadinejad leading by a
more than 2 to 1 margin -- greater than his actual apparent margin of
victory in Friday's election.
While Western news reports from Tehran in the days leading up to the
voting portrayed an Iranian public enthusiastic about Ahmadinejad's
principal opponent, Mir Hossein Mousavi, our scientific sampling from
across all 30 of Iran's provinces showed Ahmadinejad well ahead.
Independent and uncensored nationwide surveys of Iran are rare.
Typically, preelection polls there are either conducted or monitored by
the government and are notoriously untrustworthy. By contrast, the poll
undertaken by our nonprofit organizations from May 11 to May 20 was the
third in a series over the past two years. Conducted by telephone from
a neighboring country, field work was carried out in Farsi by a polling
company whose work in the region for ABC News and the BBC has received
an Emmy award. Our polling was funded by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
