how much did he know

i'm not here to justify or defend the shah... He was hoisted into a position of power, he was ill equipped to occupy... (that's how They like it)

i wager SAVAK was the brainchild of either one or all of following covert agencies CIA/MI6/MI5.

Odds are the Shah had some clue but not enough clue about the extent of the carnage.

Who supported khomeini in Paris from the late 60's through the 70's?

After the islamic revolution in Iran, the Saudi regime - and all other Sunni backed regimes in the middle east didn't look so ...alone, Sunni and repressive.
