 We have written recently about an intensifying campaign in Washington to get the Obama Administration to de-list the MEK as a foreign terrorist organization.  We have noted, that President Obama's former National Security Advisor James Jones and President Clinton's Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, Retired U.S. Army General Hugh Shelton, have joined the roster of former U.S. officials and high ranking military officers supporting the MEK.  Today, it was reported, that former Indiana Congressman Lee Hamilton, a Democrat who once chaired the House Foreign Affairs Committee, has endorsed de-listing the MEK. 

This is a big deal.  Hamilton was co-chair of the 9/11 Commission and is publicly acknowledged by the White House as an informal senior adviser to President Obama, especially on Iran-related issues.  We believe that Hamilton's involvement increases the chances that the Obama Administration will eventually start supporting the MEK as the cutting edge for a new U.S. regime change strategy towards Iran, dressed up under rubrics like "democracy promotion" and spreading "freedom" across the Middle East.

As we've written before, "it is hard to imagine a dumber, more counter-productive change in America's already deeply dysfunctional Iran policy than to lift the MEK's designation as a foreign terrorist organization and start supporting it" as part of a doomed to fail regime change strategy.
