Douglas Feith is sitting in Special Operations Room with his partners and wishes not to be questioned again about the case
Douglas Feith is sitting in Special Operations Room with his partners and wishes not to be questioned again about the case of Mojahedin-e Khalq in Iraq. But there are whispers and questions by intruding reporters, who see the facts and can't accept them as warmongers justify.
Of course, they're bold and tough so that they won't answer public opinion; they even don't answer the letters by DOS (Department of State) officials.
Powel demands them to clarify how MKO members are acting freely in Iraq when it's been claimed that this group has been disarmed. Crisis starts and once again, the case's being brought to the public opinion…
There's no doubt that such a challenge is made by the efforts of media and press in reflecting people's demands from officials in the campaign against terrorism.
Raimondo wants to say the same; he should be given the title of "Expert". He knows well that the warmongers in Pentagon are despotic people and that's why he calls them "faction within the Department of Defense"; he knows that the "Splinter elements within the People's Mujahedeen " is only a fraud and he stresses that "I wouldn't take that speculation about their willingness to fight the Americans too seriously" since he knows that " The MEK knows what side its bread is buttered on".
It's good here to point to an article in Washington Post which tried to give a picture of Powel's opposition to the armed terrorists in Iraq.
And now here's an article by Justin Raimondo, published in Antiwar.com :
I call it synchronicity. No sooner had my September 2 column on the Mujahideen e Khalq's possible connection to the Najaf bombing been posted, then the State Department came out with accusations that the group had not been reined in. In the previous week – about the time my column was written – Colin Powell wrote a letter to the Pentagon alleging that the group had not been disarmed, and was still active militarily, regularly crossing the border into Iran. Not that I'm claiming to be the Secret Master of the State
Department, or anything: I only note that my column on the problem posed by the MEK preceded public disclosure of this internecine feud.
MEK has been a problem for quite a while, but why is this all coming out now? While this hardly confirms my thesis that, out of all possible suspects in the Najaf bombing, MEK is the most likely candidate, it certainly points in that direction. Far from being neutralized, MEK has not been disarmed, and is militarily active. This report has it that
"Splinter elements within the People's Mujahedeen have taken to the rugged mountains separating Iran and Iraq, and were preparing to wage attacks against US troops, ethnic Kurds and Tehran, local officials and military sources said."
About 1,000 MEK militants are running around loose: heavily armed and itching for a fight. But I wouldn't take that speculation about their willingness to fight the Americans too seriously. The MEK knows what side its bread is buttered on: word is out that it has become the instrument of a faction within the Department of Defense determined to provoke war with Iran. This in spite of their official designation by the U.S. as a terrorist organization.
Iranian Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli called for tougher measures against the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, also known as the MEK, PMOI and NCRI) terrorist group by the European Union...
