Douglas Feith, undersecretary of defense for policy, said the People's Mujahideen, or MEK
Douglas Feith, undersecretary of defense for policy, said the People's Mujahideen, or MEK, was listed as a foreign terrorist organization by the State Department and "we are treating it as such."
His assurance follows numerous reports of a debate within the administration over whether to mount a campaign to bring down the Iranian regime, possibly using the MEK as it did the Northern Alliance to help bring down the Taliban regime in Afghanistan.
Feith acknowledged that a temporary cease-fire worked out with the MEK in Iraq by a US commander had prompted reports that the Pentagon planned to use them as "a Northern Alliance type organization... against the government of Iran."
"There never was such a plan. We will not do that," he said.
