Asharq Al-Awsat reveals that Mojahedin betrayed Saddam and paved the way for Americans to capture Baghdad
London-based Asharq Al-Awsat daily, referring to the reports on arresting General Maher Sofyan Hassan Tikriti (the head of Republican Guard), has analyzed the way Americans control Baghdad and has said that it was the fruit of a deal between Mojahedin-e Khalq with Americans. Asharq Al Awsat wrote: "American forces landed in the areas around Baghdad Airport, next to which was a residential area. The bases of Mojahedin-e Khalq, who were hosted by Saddam for years, were located close to that region. Members of this group cut a deal with Americans. They retreated from the regions they controlled and gave their military bases to American forces." Daily also quotes a US military spokesman in Iraq announcing the detention of Maher Sofyan Hassan Tikriti and says: "He was one of the main people who betrayed Saddam. It's been said that he was behind Iraqi forces' retreating from Baghdad.
