Iran: west is arming Mojahedin Khalq Terrorists (Saddam’s private army or Rajavi cult) for target assassination in the Middle East and Europe
‘Attempt on Ahmadinejad’s life failed’
An Iranian presidential aide says Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had been the target of an assassination plot at the UN food summit in Italy.
President Ahmadinejad’s adviser for human resources, Ali Zabihi, said Monday that measures taken over the past three years by the Iranian Chief Executive have jeopardized the ‘illegitimate interests’ of global powers.
"Such measures have prompted certain parties to try and assassinate or force the president to leave office," Zabihi added.
Earlier on Thursday, President Ahmadinejad said the enemy had planned to assassinate him during his March visit to Iraq, adding that last-minute changes in his schedule had foiled the plot.
"The plots to assassinate the president in Iraq and at the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) conference have both failed," Zabihi continued.
He maintained that the attempts on Ahmadinejad’s life were in line with a secret directive issued in March by US President George W. Bush ordering ‘the assassination of targeted Iranian officials’ as part of efforts to destabilize the Iranian government.
According to a report by Counterpunch magazine, the US president signed a secret finding in March authorizing a covert offensive against Iran which called for the arming and funding of terrorist groups, such as the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) and Jundallah (Army of God).
