John Bolton stressed on using MKO's intelligence
John Bolton, US undersecretary of state for arms control, stressed that the US will use Mojahedin for intelligence purposes. In the meeting of Middle East sub-commission of Congress, in response to the requests of two representatives who asked for the removal of MKO's name from the list of terrorists, John Bolton supported State Department's decision to put the organization on the list and said: "however, Mojahedin is a reliable source for what's happening inside Iran." Brad Sherman, Democrat rep. from California, described shutting down NCRI's offices in Washington as giving privileges to Iran, but also said Mojahedin is a group with questionable history. In response to Tom Tancredo's question that "regarding what Iran is doing, do you think keeping them on list will help us?", John Bolton said: I see no obstacles for using their intelligence about Iran. It's notable that one of the reasons for the US to attack Iraq was Saddam's support of terrorist groups, including Mojahedin-e khalq. The US still considers the group as terrorist.
