Economist has published an article about US’s 75 million dollar budget for intensifying media propaganda against Islamic Republic.
Besides discussing and reviewing Iranian opposition groups that are supposed to receive this money, Economist’s analyst has examined State Department’s refusal to allocate the money to the MKO.
Economist refers to the situation of MKO and designation of the group on terror lists and stresses the fact that they have no popular base in Iran:
"Many Iranian families lost their loved ones in Saddam Hussein’s imposed war on Iran. MKO joined Saddam in his war against Iran and that’s why the Iranians hate this group."
