US to delist & arm American-killing terror cult

Terror organization ‎Mujahedeen e-Khalq (MEK) will be delisted by the US State Department in order to clear legal ‎obstacles in the way of overtly arming and funding the terrorists in pursuit of a proxy war with Iran, the ‎LA Times reported in their article, “U.S. to remove Iranian group Mujahedin Khalq from terrorist list.”‎

As the US government confirms that terrorists involved in the Benghazi, Libya US consulate attack ‎were indeed the very militants funded, armed, and provided air support in last year’s bid to overthrow ‎the government of Libya, yet another disturbing announcement has been made. Terror organization ‎Mujahedeen e-Khalq (MEK) will be delisted by the US State Department in order to clear legal ‎obstacles in the way of overtly arming and funding the terrorists in pursuit of a proxy war with Iran, the ‎LA Times reported in their article, “U.S. to remove Iranian group Mujahedin Khalq from terrorist list.”‎

The LA Times states specifically:‎

‎Some current and former U.S. officials have called for arming the MEK to conduct attacks against ‎Iran, which experts say could tip the United States and Iran closer to war.‎

The lobbying effort to delist MEK has been led by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani,Howard ‎Dean, first “Secretary of Homeland Security” Tom Ridge, John Lewis, Ed Rendell, former FBI Director ‎Louis Freeh, retired General Wesley Clark, Lee Hamilton who farcically oversaw the ‎‏9/11‏‎ Commission, ‎former US Marine Corps Commandant and former Obama National Security Adviser General James ‎Jones, and Alan Dershowitz. There are also members of the British Parliament including David Amess ‎of the Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom, speaking on MEK’s behalf.‎

The US Has Already Been Arming MEK For Years

The delisting of MEK is merely a technicality to make more overt arming and funding for the group ‎possible. In reality, and despite being long recognized as a dangerous, extremist organization with ‎both innocent Iranian and American blood on their hands, the US has been arming, training, and ‎funding MEK for years, beginning under the Bush administration and continuing unabated under ‎Obama.‎

Covert support for the US-listed terrorist group Mujahedeen e-Khalq (MEK) has been ongoing since at ‎least ‎‏2008‏‎ under the Bush administration, when Seymour Hersh’s ‎‏2008‏‎ New Yorker article “Preparing ‎the Battlefield,” reported that not only had MEK been considered for their role as a possible proxy, ‎but that the US had already begun arming and financing them to wage war inside Iran:‎

“The M.E.K. has been on the State Department’s terrorist list for more than a decade, yet in recent ‎years the group has received arms and intelligence, directly or indirectly, from the United States. Some ‎of the newly authorized covert funds, the Pentagon consultant told me, may well end up in M.E.K. ‎coffers. “The new task force will work with the M.E.K. The Administration is desperate for results.” He ‎added, “The M.E.K. has no C.P.A. auditing the books, and its leaders are thought to have been lining ‎their pockets for years. If people only knew what the M.E.K. is getting, and how much is going to its ‎bank accounts—and yet it is almost useless for the purposes the Administration intends.”‎

Seymore Hersh in an NPR interview, also claims that select MEK members have already received ‎training in the US.‎

More recently, the British Daily Mail published a stunning admission by “US officials” that Israel is ‎currently funding, training, arming, and working directly with MEK. The Daily Mail article states, “U.S. ‎officials confirmed today that Israel has been funding and training Iranian dissidents to assassinate ‎nuclear scientists involved in Iran’s nuclear program.” The article continues by claiming, “Washington ‎insiders confirmed there is a close relationship between Mossad and MEK.”‎

In ‎‏2009‏‎, an extensive conspiracy was formulated within US policy think-tank Brookings Institution’s ‎‏2009‏‎ “Which Path to Persia?” report, proposing to fully arm, train, and back MEK as it waged a ‎campaign of armed terror against the Iranian people.‎

In their report, they openly conspire to use what is an admitted terrorist organization as a “US proxy” ‎‎(emphasis added):‎

“Perhaps the most prominent (and certainly the most controversial) opposition group that has ‎attracted attention as a potential U.S. proxy is the NCRI (National Council of Resistance of Iran), the ‎political movement established by the MEK (Mujahedin-e Khalq). Critics believe the group to be ‎undemocratic and unpopular, and indeed anti-American.‎

‎ In contrast, the group’s champions contend that the movement’s long-standing opposition to the ‎Iranian regime and record of successful attacks on and intelligence-gathering operations against the ‎regime make it worthy of U.S. support. They also argue that the group is no longer anti-American and ‎question the merit of earlier accusations. Raymond Tanter, one of the group’s supporters in the ‎United States, contends that the MEK and the NCRI are allies for regime change in Tehran and also act ‎as a useful proxy for gathering intelligence. The MEK’s greatest intelligence coup was the provision of ‎intelligence in ‎‏2002‏‎ that led to the discovery of a secret site in Iran for enriching uranium.‎

Despite its defenders’ claims, the MEK remains on the U.S. government list of foreign terrorist ‎organizations. In the ‎‏1970‏s, the group killed three U.S. officers and three civilian contractors in Iran. ‎During the ‎‏1979-1980‏‎ hostage crisis, the group praised the decision to take America hostages and ‎Elaine Sciolino reported that while group leaders publicly condemned the ‎‏9/11‏‎ attacks, within the ‎group celebrations were widespread.‎

Undeniably, the group has conducted terrorist attacks—often excused by the MEK’s advocates ‎because they are directed against the Iranian government. For example, in ‎‏1981‏‎, the group bombed ‎the headquarters of the Islamic Republic Party, which was then the clerical leadership’s main political ‎organization, killing an estimated ‎‏70‏‎ senior officials. More recently, the group has claimed credit for ‎over a dozen mortar attacks, assassinations, and other assaults on Iranian civilian and military targets ‎between ‎‏1998‏‎ and ‎‏2001‏‎. At the very least, to work more closely with the group (at least in an overt ‎manner), Washington would need to remove it from the list of foreign terrorist organizations.”‎

The latest lobbying effort to delist MEK, led by some of the most adamant proponents for the West’s ‎‎“War on Terror” is simply the latest move in a long-ago decided conspiracy to build up an armed ‎terrorist group with which to fight a proxy war against Iran. That the conspiracy has been dutifully ‎carried out over the course of two presidencies indicates a continuity in agenda, divorced from the ‎alleged agendas and ideologies of each respective presidency.‎

MEK is a Listed Terror Organization for a Reason

The delisting, funding, arming, and training of MEK is an indefensible crime against humanity, standing ‎in direct violation of both United States law, as well as international accords agreed upon to stem the ‎state sponsorship of terrorism.‎

MEK has carried out decades of brutal terrorist attacks, assassinations, and espionage against the ‎Iranian government and its people, as well as targeting Americans including the attempted kidnapping ‎of US Ambassador Douglas MacArthur II, the attempted assassination of USAF BrigadierGeneral Harold ‎Price, the successful assassination of Lieutenant Colonel Louis Lee Hawkins, the double assassinations ‎of Colonel Paul Shaffer and Lieutenant Colonel Jack Turner, and the successful ambush and killing of ‎American Rockwell International employees William Cottrell, Donald Smith, and Robert Krongard.‎

Admissions to the deaths of the Rockwell International employees can be found within a report ‎written by former US State Department and Department of Defense official Lincoln Bloomfield Jr. on ‎behalf of the lobbying firm Akin Gump in an attempt to dismiss concerns over MEK’s violent past and ‎how it connects to its current campaign of armed terror – a testament to the depths of depravity from ‎which Washington and London lobbyists operate.‎

To this day MEK terrorists have been carrying out attacks inside of Iran killing political opponents, ‎attacking civilian targets, as well as carrying out the US-Israeli program of targeting and assassinating ‎Iranian scientists. MEK terrorists are also suspected of handling patsies in recent false flag operations ‎carried out in India, Georgia, and Thailand, which have been ham-handedly blamed on the Iranian ‎government.‎

MEK is described by Council on Foreign Relations Senior Fellow Ray Takeyh as a “cult-like organization” ‎with “totalitarian tendencies.” While Takeyh fails to expand on what he meant by “cult-like” and ‎‎“totalitarian,” an interview with US State Department-run Radio Free Europe-Radio Libertyreported ‎that a MEK Camp Ashraf escapee claimed the terrorist organization bans marriage, using radios, the ‎Internet, and holds many members against their will with the threat of death if ever they are caught ‎attempting to escape.‎


Clearly, all involved, from the Bush administration to Obama’s, are complicit in an overarching agenda ‎to willfully arm terrorists to deploy against Iran. MEK’s history and even its current state is one of ‎couching militant terrorism within the tenuous trappings of political activism – and provides a ‎transparent comparison with which to use against Libyan and Syrian terrorists also armed, trained, ‎funded, and supported by the West in pursuit of long since planned regime change.‎

Whether it is the US funding and arming Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) terrorists in Libya and in ‎Syria, or delisting the already heavily US-armed and funded MEK in Iraq to carry out attacks across the ‎border against Iran, the West itself is the premier purveyor of state sponsored global terror.‎

It is support that originates not within the alleged political ideologies of “Neo-Cons” or the current ‎‎“liberal-Democrat” president, but from corporate-financier interests, articulated within their think-‎tanks, and merely rubber-stamped and sold to the public by troupes of proxy politicians using false ‎paradigms to manipulate public perception. It is a singular, continuous agenda that will carry forth no ‎matter who is elected into office in ‎‏2012‏‎, ‎‏2016‏‎ or beyond. Until the balance of power can be shifted ‎from the corporate-financier interests on Wall Street and in the City of London, back into the hands of ‎the people and their communities, such agendas will continue on.‎‎
