US Congressman Ted Poe: MEK actively working for our intelligence agencies
STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO REPORTS OF SECRETARY OF STATE CLINTON’S INTENTION TO DE-LIST MEK TODAY
Washington, D.C. – “Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s expected decision to delist the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (MEK) from the Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) list is long overdue, but a much welcomed and warranted decision,” said Poe. “The MEK long ago renounced violence, and in recent years, has been actively working with US intelligence agencies to get information on activities inside Iran. …”
In March 2011, Congressman Ted Poe, a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, introduced H.Res. 60, urging the Secretary of State to remove the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran from the Department of State’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations. The bill has 98 bipartisan cosponsors.
