Description:

A Democratic National Convention unlike any seen before kicks off in the United States. Many of the biggest names in democratic politics are due to speak at the virtual event, demonstrating as much socially distanced unity as the party can muster. Christiane Amanpour is joined by former Governor of Ohio John Kasich, who ran against Donald Trump four years ago for the Republican nomination, and has now crossed the political aisle to speak at this year’s DNC. Then, in 1953 the CIA and MI6 instigated a coup d’état to overthrow Iran’s Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh and reinstall the Shah to power. Operation Ajax set in motion a course of events that would lead to Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution, and which continue to shape the country today.  Documentary film “Coup 53”  uses new archival evidence to tell this story and Christiane speaks to the men behind the film, director Taghi Amirani and editor Walter Murch. And our Hari Sreenivasan speaks to professor of anthropology and best-selling author Wade Davis about his latest article for Rolling Stone “The Unraveling of America”, and the end of American exceptionalism.
