As Massoud Khodabandeh stated in Paris during the book launch for Alain Chevalerais’ Burned Alive the MKO does not have satellites to monitor the military movements of Iran and cannot be considered as the source of this information. It is, as Justin Raimondo (antiwar.com) reminds us, like déjà vu of the Iraqi National Congress providing false evidence as the single source to justify an attack on Iraq
The past month has been dominated by the stand-off between Iran, Europe and the USA over Iran’s nuclear power project. Israel announced it would take a back seat, not wanting to be identified as a participant in the argument. At least on the surface. All month the MKO has been on overdrive to reveal true and false accusations alike to undermine the possibility of agreement between Europe and Iran. However, as Massoud Khodabandeh stated in Paris during the book launch for Alain Chevalerais’ Burned Alive the MKO does not have satellites to monitor the military movements of Iran and cannot be considered as the source of this information. It is, as Justin Raimondo (antiwar.com) reminds us, like déjà vu of the Iraqi National Congress providing false evidence as the single source to justify an attack on Iraq. Examining the MKO agenda in these actions they mirror almost exactly the agenda of neocons and Likudniks for regime change in Iran. The MKO have openly ‘announced’ this link with their Miami-Cuban style carnival in Washington as well as in news conferences, hosted, incidentally by known collaborators with the intelligence services of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. It is impossible to find any other Iranian opposition, whether inside or outside Iran, who back this agenda. It is so clearly not in the interests of the country – or for that matter for the rest of the world. It appears that by relaying this nuclear intelligence on behalf of those ones who don’t want to be identified on the front line, the MKO are hoping to prove themselves as ‘good terrorists’ and be removed from the lists and allowed to continue their own agenda of violence and warmongering. Although they have been useful for their backers during the past month I can’t see that anyone will want to take on the history of Saddam to be their next benefactor. Another development which we didn’t have space for concerns a letter written by Ebrahim Khodabandeh from Evin prison (Tehran) to Massoud Rajavi (Ashraf military camp, Iraq). Khodabandeh was visited by two British MPs and Iran- Interlink in June this year. The visit put and end to MKO propaganda that the prisoners are under severe torture and face imminent execution. The MKO in response withdrew all related materials from its publications. After our visit he wrote this letter and asked us to send it to all the people who visited him in Evin. With his permission we have published his letter on the Iran-Interlink website. Khodabandeh was able to participate in the welcoming party organised by Nejat Association for the seven MKO dissidents who recently managed to escape from the MKO in Iraq.
