Just before the students took over the US Embassy, over Savak, the Shah’s (whose line General Schwartzkopf’s father in the 1930s US Expeditionary force had put in power) secret police spying on Iranian students in U.S. colleges and universities, Savak was a big recruiter, the Grumman Corporation had a compound outside Tehran with almost 4,000 Americans in it teaching the Shah’s air force how to fly and service the 79 F-14s it had delivered (20 operational today Wikipedia) thought to be out of 100, apparently all paid for. When the crisis occurred we were going to blow them all up if the USSR made a move for their mutual border, the air-to-air missile tech would upset the balance of power in the world if captured the F-14 test pilot told me as we heard it come over the main stream television news. Built on Long Island, NY I saw the last two flying, they’ve since left, where they built the lunar lander and merged with Northrup.  McClatchy Washington Bureau | 11/06/2008 | Treasury Department turns up pressure on Iran
