The wrong side of the operation "Argo". What is behind the scenes Oscar-winning film

43



"This is the best advertisement of the CIA." That is how the official Iranian authorities responded about this film and banned it from showing in their own country. But in many cinemas of the world "Argo" goes with success. No wonder he received three Oscar statues - the highest award of the American Film Academy - and was recognized as the best film of the year. The AN reviewer watched this movie in the company of veterans of the Soviet and Russian intelligence services.

The failure showed victory

After watching, we gathered at a friendly table. After the first toast began to exchange views on the film.

“Hollywood is not for nothing called the factory of dreams,” said retired colonel Nikolai Kuzmin. - Famously, they turned the great failure of the American special services into a bright victory.

At the end of the last century 70, Kuzmin began his scout career in Tehran. He saw with his own eyes how the seizure of the American Embassy in Iran took place. Then local students, one of the leaders of which, they say, was the current Iranian president Ahmadinejad, took hostage 52 employee of the US diplomatic mission in Tehran. Almost all of them were spies. They were kept in captivity on the 444 of the day. The Iranians demanded that the American authorities extradite Shah Mohamad Reza Pahlavi, who had fled to the United States.

In the film “Argo”, the Iranian internal political situation of those days is well shown. The frames with the "enemies of the Islamic revolution" hung on construction cranes were especially impressive. The same fate threatened American spies. Therefore, to free the hostages, the operation “Eagle Claw” was developed. It was carried out on 24 on April 1980 of the year by the highly praised special forces “Delta”.

According to the plan, operations 8 helicopters with special forces, accompanied by strike aircraft and tankers were to land in the desert in the center of the country. At this time, another group was to seize and hold an abandoned airfield not far from Tehran. The next day, the spetsnaz group from the secret camp in the desert was to get by car to the embassy in Tehran, destroy the guards and sit down with the hostages in the arrived helicopters, which would then fly to the captured airfield, from where all the participants of the operation would be evacuated to the secret base in friendly USA Egypt.

But the operation immediately followed by failure. When planning, they did not take into account the weather forecast and did not foresee the consequences of dust storms raging in the desert at that time of year. And they caused a breakdown of technology. Of the eight helicopters that took off on mission, one was thrown in transit due to damage to the blade, another was lost in a dust storm and turned back. Only six reached the temporary base in the desert.

And here "Delta" was waiting for a real failure. The location chosen for the temporary base turned out to be a busy highway. As a result, the operation was immediately unmasked. Even professional cruelty did not help. And although the special forces blocked the intercity bus with passengers and blew up an Iranian fuel tanker passing by, whose passenger died, but the driver disappeared in a passing car. He immediately reported to the special services on what he saw of the American military.

And the special forces all went awry. At one of the helicopters who reached the base, they discovered a problem with hydraulics, after which it was decided to cancel the operation and leave Iran. However, during refueling, one of the helicopters crashed into a tanker aircraft, eight crew members were killed in a subsequent fire. As a result, in the desert all the helicopters were thrown (after which they went to the Iranians), the corpses of the pilots and other crew members, secret documentation on the operation. All surviving participants in the operation were evacuated on the remaining helicopters. Operation Eagle Claw ended in complete failure.

But all this remained behind the scenes of the film “Argo”. Such seemingly dynamic scenes in the desert did not interest Hollywood. The director chose to take only one small episode from the operation to free the hostages. And not 52, but only six. True, he showed it skillfully, without the usual cine shooting and sex.



Help

The CIA has its own departmental award system:

Medal "For Honorable Service in Intelligence". Awarded for service in the context of increasing levels of responsibility or the growth of strategic clashes and the exceptional success achieved.

Cross "For services in intelligence." For the voluntary manifestation (or manifestations) of outstanding heroism in the awareness of existing dangers and the strength of spirit and exemplary courage demonstrated.

Medal for Merit in Intelligence. For excellent service or for outstanding success in the performance of official duties.

"Star Scout". For voluntary manifestation (or manifestations) of courage, committed in conditions of risk to life, or for outstanding success, or for excellent performance of service in conditions of serious risk. This is the highest award of the CIA.


Hollywood Cranberry

Colonel Kuzmin did not share this opinion of the browser "AN". The film seemed to him a spreading Hollywood cranberry, very far from the truth of life.

“Even here, the Americans are trying to pull the blanket over themselves,” said Nikolai Fedorovich. - But in reality, everything was different in Tehran.

- But as?

And Kuzmin began to tell. It turns out that six American intelligence officers: Robert Anders, Mark Lidzek, Cora Emburn-Lidzek, Joseph Stafford, Kathleen Stafford and Henry Lee Schatz worked in the consulate, located in a separate building of the embassy. When the Iranians storming the embassy began to climb over the wall, two groups of diplomats left the building and headed along the Tehran streets to the British embassy. Consul General Richard Morfield's group erred in the direction of travel and was soon captured and returned to the embassy building. Robert Anders’s group, which was joined by two Americans, almost reached the British Embassy, ​​but stumbled upon a huge crowd of protesters, blocking their passage. Anders' house was nearby, and he invited the rest to go there. Thus began the six-day odyssey of the group. The CIA staff wandered around the different houses; they spent one night in a British residence. Anders contacted his old friend John Sherdaun, a Canadian immigration official, and received an invitation from him to take refuge for the whole group. 10 November 1979, five Americans came to the residence of Sherdaun, where, apart from John and Xena Sherdaun, they were met by Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor. The Staffords couple settled with Ambassador Taylor and his wife, Pat, three remained with the Sherdauns. Two weeks later, Agent Shatz, who worked in Iran under the “roof” of the US Department of Agriculture, joined Staffords. He previously hid in the Swedish embassy, ​​sleeping right on the floor, and then in the apartment of the Swedish consul Cecilia Litander. Six Americans stayed with Canadians for 79 days.

Take laurels from Canadians

US President Jimmy Carter, commenting on the plot of "Argo", made the following amendment: "90% of the contribution to the idea and bringing the operation to the end belongs to Canadian special services." He also recalled that the main character was Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor, and not Tony Mendes at all.
According to Colonel Kuzmin, the Canadian ambassador to Iran Ken Taylor and Canadian immigration official John Sherdown, in fact, and not the CIA, began the operation to rescue the six hostages. As a result, it was decided to take out the six employees of the American special services who were in trouble by an international flight, providing them with Canadian passports.

It was only after this that the CIA engaged its expert in disguise and exfiltration, Tony Mendes. He had to develop a cover legend, to find suitable clothes, materials for changing the personalities of the hostages. Then, Mendez and his assistant flew to Tehran. They had several alternative passports for different scenarios. The main история cover was based on the issuance of six spies for the filming team, looking for a place to film. With the help of a Hollywood veteran makeup artist, John Chambers, an outline of the script for the film Argo with decorations from the Middle East was developed. The legend of shooting the film was also seen as a cover for sending an armed team to Tehran to free the embassy. This detail of the operation "Argo" is still kept in strict confidence.

Most blunders of this espionage story are now hidden. And only some of them became known from the book “Mastery of Disguise” by Mendes. So, when preparing the visa was a mistake. The developers did not take into account that the New Year in Iran begins at the end of March. This mistake was noticed by a Canadian embassy official when he checked documents. Mendes brought along several additional passports and put in them new visa stamps, which this time corresponded to the Iranian calendar.

Visiting the Canadian Ambassador, Americans spent weeks reading and playing (mostly cards). Over time, the Iranians became suspicious, began to make dubious phone calls and other suspicious activities, and the plot was threatened with disclosure. And then the Canadian special services managed for 3 million dollars to buy a “corridor” at the Iranian airport. About this in the film says nothing. Otherwise, it would not have been possible to show the spectacular scenes of the passage by the Americans of the customs and the guardians of the Islamic Revolution, and also the culmination of the film — car chases on the plane flying away.

According to Nikolai Fyodorovich, in order to reduce the risk of failure, the Americans flew away from Iran not with the whole group of six people, as shown in the film, but one by one, with different flights. The remaining 52 hostages were released through the mediation of Algeria much later, on the first day of the new President Reagan. For this, I had to defrost Iranian accounts in the US in the amount of 5,3 billion dollars.

At the end of the film, Tony Mendes should be awarded the highest CIA award, the Scout Star, in a closed ceremony. The contribution of the Canadian intelligence services remained behind the scenes.

    Honestly, apart from Ben Affleck's acting, there is nothing particularly interesting there, and it was immediately obvious that this is a CIA gobbled self-PR who was simply artificially dragged to the Oscars, like the film “The Lord of the Storm” (a film about an American podryznik (well, or a sapper in our opinion) in Iraq) that year when Avatar came out, which was a revolutionary in the cinema, but contained the idea that the natives kicked the Americans ass.

    In general, we should have learned from the Americans in this path, made a film, for example, about the storming of Amin’s palace, an excellent operation, or about Pennant in Beirut when they captured the employees of the Soviet embassy. Yes, we can do a lot of things about the heroism of our compatriots, the Americans all get puffed up, invent heroes and make films about them, but we don’t even have to invent anything, but we remove all kinds of nonsense.

      “Hollywood is not in vain called a dream factory,” said retired colonel Nikolai Fedorovich Kuzmin. That says it all. Thus, the United States rewrite history, and brainwash youth. To raise the morale of American youth, this lie in Hollywood films, so to speak, to save. After all, they have a problem with this. That's the way they demonstrate the American Dream to everyone, they say everything in them is in chocolate, we don’t leave our own. And if you look at the other side, coins, it is by no means chocolate, many former US Army contract soldiers are bombing, claiming their rights, which they lost without having served in the army, and so on. A lot of unemployed have appeared in recent years in the USA. City-forming enterprises are destroyed, the people in these cities, beggar, are afraid to go out on the streets, a house can be bought there for 1000 bucks. Here it is Shine and poverty in America.

        The problem is not even what American youth thinks so, the problem is that many of the Russian youth think so, having seen enough movies about those same rambo, etc. they see that the Americans are cool, and we are so miserable and insignificant. There were even those who think that the Americans won the 2nd World War, and we helped them ...

This is understood by people of the older generation - and we must try to be able to convey this, to the developing child’s brain ... We (adults) are well aware that behind all the beautiful Hollywood scenes, “peeps” (smells unpleasantly) an unacceptable ideology for us ... I I don’t really want, and it’s not nice to discuss American films on this site - BUT ... By chance, I was given the opportunity to go to the movies with the children to the movie "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." I am very interested in the opinion of (adults) of those who watched this film - did this remind you of anything? According to the scenario, it is clear that there will be a continuation and most likely more than one episode. But of which I am firmly convinced that neither I nor my children will want to watch the sequels ...

Amer in "The Hunt for Red October", in Goebelsian style, showed the feat of sailors and twisted the truth. They have propaganda and censorship, and no one in the States will show the Case in Square 34-80. Remove "Brother 3", show all the rot of America!

        What would Hollywood show the CIA from the back ... yes, never in life, money for the shooting of such films for patriotic education, probably the State Department is slowly allocating so that citizens are proud of their country, and historical authenticity is not the main thing for them, anyway 99 % of those who looked at the source will not climb. The very first Rambo, who scattered a platoon of enemy paratroopers with a club, evokes sympathy among the Sshapov patriots, because this is their rimbaud.
        At the top, they don’t understand that such things need to be financed, like: sort it out yourself. And in vain.

      Well, I think there are quite a lot of heroic deeds for twenty years with the tail of the Russian Federation’s existence, over the years 2 Chechen companies and the conflict in Georgia have been covered, and I think it would be worth making films about such anti-terrorist operations as Beslan.

    Once, as a young officer, a very respected person told me that, in most cases, heroes become due to someone’s negligence, when fathers-commanders didn’t think of anything or take into account, and the guys doing their work are forced to save their lives and lives those around.
    I agree with the above fasting, you need to remove the "propaganda" and about our guys. Although if you take the movie "Kandahar", then this is no longer an agitation. The guys really abandoned and if not for their desire to live, who knows how it would grow together.

    Any film is the skill of the film crew and not of any real life.
    In life in an extreme situation, events that cannot be perceived, especially of the civilian population, occur.
    It is impossible to show fear, pain, determination, selflessness, courage, resourcefulness, patience, endurance, compassion and indifference during a battle.
    This is just a custom film of someone else's rich special services.

        By the way, do you know that part of your country, under an agreement of 1918, it seems, with representatives of those who are now being called the White Guard, was supposed to withdraw under British rule as a colony. In the text of the agreement there are wonderful lines that you are granted all the rights that the British colonies of Tranvaal, Orange have, and the population is guaranteed rights similar to the rights of the Zulus .... ZULUSOV !!!! Do you understand this? You see. how would this end for you? To admit it is a pity that you can’t be sent to the skin of a Zulu slave for a day under British oppression for a day ... when the pigs squealed. why the Russian press so little exposes the Western community built on robbery, robbery and just animal bloody crimes .... you don’t understand a damn thing ... would you come from here ... the Zulus is unfinished (thanks to the Bolsheviks and, in general, to the Russians, unfinished ) .....

    Oh, and when will we make such films? That there was reason to be proud, not repent. And we have real reasons to be proud.

    Most of the Hollywood movie production is primitive films. The simplicity of the plot, a funny but understandable division into "bad" and good (Americans), special effects is a recipe for popularity. The widespread introduction of education, stamping "qualified consumers" creates an army of viewers who are not able to perceive another movie. Universal dibilization! am

    For all that, it would be useful for us to adopt from the Americans the perseverance with which they advance their position, their views and interests. And our filmmakers ..... negative They have no patriotism! There is no love for their homeland in their paintings, at best there is, but contrary to the NKVD, Stalin, the system, etc., they even manage to spoil the theme of the Great Patriotic War. Mikhalkov is the best! The class of the master is felt. And the other stream is frank slag. And not one of our films can be compared with the Belarusian "Brest Fortress"! It is impossible to make a film about a great era considering the creators of this era tyrants, executioners or slaves! First of all, we must get rid of the lies about Stalin, the NKVD, the USSR and "paradise" in tsarist Russia, then, you see, worthy films appear. And in these pictures a generation will grow up knowing and respecting the history of their country!

    It has long been well known that the war begins on the kulman of the designer. And also that the information is cheaper and more effective. I think, and many agree with me, Russia is losing this war. The fight against falsification of history will not begin. but it’s time.

    the problem is that many of the Russian youth think so

    Yes, this washing is specially thought out for fragile children's brains. This is understood by people of the older generation - and we must try to be able to convey this, to the developing child’s brain ... We (adults) are well aware that behind all the beautiful Hollywood scenes, “peeps” (smells unpleasantly) an unacceptable ideology for us ... I I don’t really want, and it’s not nice to discuss American films on this site - BUT ... By chance, I was given the opportunity to go to the movies with the children to the movie "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." I am very interested in the opinion of (adults) of those who watched this film - did this remind you of anything? According to the scenario, it is clear that there will be a continuation and most likely more than one episode. But of which I am firmly convinced that neither I nor my children will want to watch the sequels ...
    And what is our ideology, is it not that much different ???

    Say what you like, but Hollywood from any g ,,, trying to make candy. They consider themselves winners, rewrite history through multimedia. And very beautiful, with special effects.
