BP Hires CIA General Counsel Stanley Sporkin as Lobbyist
by Stephen Lendman
Stanley Sporkin was General Counsel for the CIA 5 years under William Casey during
the Iran Contra years. This is the same CIA which with MI6 responded to Iran's
sovereign right to nationalize oil by overthrowing her elected government in 1953-4 and
installing the torturing Shah of Iran and BP. Next Sporkin, like
several other CIA employees, was moved DIRECTLY into federal
judgeships through Orrin Hatch, Mormon Republican from Utah,
then head of the Judiciary Committee.
