Muhammad Sahimi, a professor of chemical engineering and materials science at the University of Southern California, in an article entitled “The Neoconservatives’ Strategy for Regime Change in Iran” published in payvand.com, referred to the neoconservatives and their Iranian allies as the warmongers and called the need for Iranians and Iranian-Americans to be fully informed about their true nature because the war they are provoking against Iran has nothing to do with "liberating" Iran and establishing a truly democratic political system in Iran.
He elaborates that as the Bush Administration cannot find any Iran-based political group to work with, then, it turns to some secular Iranian groups in exile with the least social status in Iran:
This leaves the Administration to work with only two groups, as well as some ambitious Iranians in exile who envision themselves as Iran’s future leaders. One is the Mojahedeen Khalgh Organization (supported by some neoconservatives and misguided members of the Congress). The MKO is universally despised by Iranians for acting as Saddam Hussein’s spies during the Iran-Iraq war, and as his agent for suppressing the Iraqi Kurds and Shi’ites.
Emphasizing that the neoconservatives do have their Iranian curveballs Sahimi, wrongly differentiating between NCRI and MKO members, points to some of these curveballs:
The others are "former" members of MKO – Alireza Jafarzadeh, Ali Safavi, and Mohammad Mohaddessin, who have been making outlandish claims about Iran’s nuclear program which, with one exception, have all been proven by the IAEA to be false. The exception was the revelation about the Natanz facility for uranium enrichment.
In respect to fomenting friction between Iran’s ethnic minorities and the Persian majority and gathering intelligence on Iran’s nuclear activities he points out:
There have been several reports that the MKO members, who are protected by the U.S. in their Camp Ashraf in Iraq, are working with the U.S. Special Forces to collect information about Iran’s nuclear facilities, and Iran’s ethnic minorities.
