The article counters the claim by the Ayatollah of Iran that the U. S. had controlled the Shah and is therefore a criminal accomplice in the crimes committed by the Shah. It is pointed out that there are dead and tortured Iranians and the U. S. does not do such things against its own dissenters, therefore, the U. S. did not control the Shah.
