Poor Jebb
October 12, 1951 — The Miami Daily News

The Mossadegh Project | October 19, 2015      

This dopey little editorial ran in The Miami Daily News on Friday evening, Oct. 12, 1951. Founded in 1896, it was the oldest newspaper in Miami, Florida.

Needs Build Up

Latest bulletin from New York hospital about Premier Mossadegh of Iran is that the visitor is suffering from no serious ailment. He is expected to leave the hospital for the first time to attend the UN security council meeting next Monday to battle the British over Iranian oil.

We’re not worried half so much about Mossadegh as about Britain’s Sir Gladwynn Jebb [United Nations Ambassador]. Judging from the British record in Iran recently, Sir Gladwynn should be in the hospital.
