James M. Lutz, author of "Global Terrorism", has discussed Iraq and its terrorist activities in part of his book. He also reveals that Mojahedin-e khalq was supposed to cooperate with Saddam in assassinating former president George Bush. Lutz says in his book: " In the war with Iran, Iraq supported dissident groups in that country, particularly the leftist Mojahedin-e khalq (MKO). This group had fought to overthrow the shah in conjunction with other groups, including the supporters of Ayatollah Khomeini. The MKO resorted to terrorist attacks against the new Islamic Republic, scoring some spectacular successes. The new Iranian regime, however, was able to defeat this campaign and eliminate many of the members [Rathmell 1997b]. During the long war with Iran, the MKO cooperated with Iraq in the hope of establishing itself in power in Iran. When Iran and Iraq agreed to end their war on the basis of the boundaries before the Iraqi invasion, Saddam Hussein abandoned the MKO to its fate, one the clearest examples of a government only using a dissident group in another country as long as it proved useful to foreign policy goals. Iraq also equipped, supplied and trained the National Liberation Army (NLA) which was seeking to establish a leftist, non-Islamic government in Iran… … The most daring plan was an effort (that was discovered in time) to assassinate former president George Bush with the help of MKO operatives in 1993 (Mylroie 2000: 114). Apparently Saddam Hussein was seeking revenge for US attempts to kill him with smart bombs during the war to liberate Kuwait (Richelson 2002: 252)…."
