Once again, the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO) builds up nonexistent threats. It multiplies the fake evidence fabricated by Israeli Intelligence about Iranian nuclear program. Surprisingly the American prominent newspaper supports it with its propaganda against the Iranian government.
On May 27, the US newspaper Wall Street Journal cited a report by the MKO as saying that Iran “has kept active and intact its core team of weaponization researchers.” The news –it was definitely a news piece—was published on the editorial page of the newspaper. It somehow sounded bizarre to other journalists and politicians.
"Noticeably, the WSJ did not claim to have verified the MEK’s allegations that Tehran has continued to pursue nuclear weaponization research," Eli Clifton of the Nation wrote criticizing the WSJ’s editorial board that "apparently felt no compunction to inform readers about the source of this “plausible new report".
“The MEK has a mixed record,” Daryl Kimball, executive director of the Arms Control Association, a Washington-based arms control advocacy group, told The Nation. “It’s curious that it occurred in the editorial page section and not the news section,” said Kimball. “The editors don’t appear to have tried to vet the information and they don’t stand behind it.”
The MKO’s misleading champagne on the Iranian Nuclear Program is aimed to monger more fear and hostility against Iran. This major tactic of the group was formally warned about in the 2004 FBI report on the MKO published in June 2011. "Additionally, the MEK continues to practice misinformation operations in the U.S. and Europe. MEK lobbyists routinely hold press conferences and pass information regarding the current Iranian government that is inaccurate and is designed to influence Western Media and governments."[pg 18]
The Israeli backed MKO cult is determined to manipulate US policy. Claims about an Iranian "breakout" on the nuclear agreements are falsified. The MKO propaganda –led by Israel– repeats its fabrications with disturbing regularity. Neocon warmonger sponsors of the group also repeat after the MKO.
Gareth Porter the prominent American investigative journalist and political analyst says in his new book Manufactured Crisis that the allegations about the Iranian nuke is a plot to justify an unjustifiable conflict with Iran. "Fear-mongering propagandists may well succeed in pushing the United States into a situation of increased tension with Iran",said Gareth Porter.
The MKO substituted nonsense for truths. It is just an irresponsible act by a newspaper editorial board to become the tribune of a terrorist cult like group that never admits its crimes against humanity.
