Turkey's leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited Washington DC on Tuesday to meet with the Trump administration. But while Erdogan and Trump's meeting went smoothly, the visit took a nasty turn. 

Shocking video shot by a bystander appears to show members of Erdogan's bodyguard attacking protestors outside the Turkish ambassador's residence in DC, while the DC police try to contain the situation. 9 people were reportedly injured, and 2 arrested.

SAVAK agents actually killed a West German student in anti-shah demo in Germany.
A very controversial incident, even Jurgen Habermas had commentary about it.
Thanx for the reminder.

And let's not forget all those SAVAK agents rehired by the Islamic State of Iran.
Or General Fardost, for that matter.
Thanx again.
