The most important is that Shane specifically echoes U.S official's response to MeK propaganda that the Iraqi government is going to expel them because they are on the FTO. One can infer from this response that there is no program to remove them from the blacklist.

Iran Didban
Although Scott Shane's article in New York Times points out the American lobbying support for MEK and the huge salaries that terrorist group pays to these former officials, and even raises questions on MEK funds, which is faced with Vague, ambiguous and improvable answer of MeK spokesman, but the most significant of his paper are some statements of current U.S officials, which were remain dormant by him, Perhaps because he did not Want to get into trouble. Note to these statements:

1. The American authorities are concern that MeK have supporters among them who naively believe their claims, that they are the main Iranian opposition and defenders of democratic values.

2. The authorities have noticed over the years that this organization acts as a "totalitarian cult-oriented"; to demonstrate this fact, it is enough to observe the treat of these cult members with their leaders, Masood and Mrayam Rajavi, which is based on "devotion and flattery".

3. According to the American officials, "MeK is a fringe Iranian opposition group, long an ally of Saddam Hussein that is designated as a terrorist organization under United States law and described by State Department officials as a repressive cult despised by most Iranians and Iraqis."

The most important is that Shane specifically echoes U.S official's response to MeK propaganda that the Iraqi government is going to expel them because they are on the FTO. One can infer from this response that there is no program to remove them from the blacklist:

"U.S officials articulate that, also in Iraq, MeK are hatred for their alliance with Saddam in suppressing the Shiite revolt of 1991, and according to this hostility, removing this group from the terrorist list would not be remedial and always it is possible that they be attacked."

Finally, the last thing that New York Times writer Scott Shane raises is that to resolve this situation, Officials stressed the need to withdraw members of this organization from Iraq.
