MKO terrorists marketing themselves
Appearing on the page of Detain This was A Commentary on Self-Destructive Neocon Hypocrisy. It begins:
While it should be a non-interventionist approach to keeping in good standing among nations and being as firm as is reasonably necessary, the neocon version of US-Middle East foreign policy has instead been the bullying and preemptively violent m.o. of a few enterprising mafia Dons pimping out the neighborhood for The Family.
The commentary in a few coming paragraphs states how Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization has been employed by some elements of the U.S. government:
And although you never see it reported by the corporate mainstream media, the Iranian opposition group, Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MeK) ” a US-designated terrorist organization since 1997 ” has been harbored and employed by elements of the U.S. government for years. Raw Story reports:
The Pentagon is bypassing official US intelligence channels and turning to a dangerous and unruly cast of characters in order to create strife in Iran in preparation for any possible attack, former and current intelligence officials say. One of the operational assets being used by the Defense Department is a right-wing terrorist organization known as Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MEK), which is being "run" in two southern regional areas of Iran. They are Baluchistan, a Sunni stronghold, and Khuzestan, a Shia region where a series of recent attacks has left many dead and hundreds injured in the last three months.
MeK. Remember the name. If anything goes down in Iran, they’ll probably be on the front lines in one way or another. They were active in Iran as players in the Islamic Revolution of 1979, and thereafter, when they terrorized Americans and fellow Iranians because the MeK weren’t allowed enough power in the new government. They were eventually run out of Iran, but since that time, their footprint on the landscape of US-Iranian contingencies has evolved and expanded; they are marketing themselves well, even peddling their propaganda in the mainstream. One of their spokespeople, Alireza Jafarzadeh, appears on occasion as a "Middle East Expert," or "Terror Expert" on CNN and Fox. (Imagine my shock.) It’s not uncommon for members of the MeK, the U.S government, neocon "think-tanks," and AIPAC to strategize toward mutual goals. I highly suggest that people read up on that group.
