The PMO is a non-democratic Marxist terrorist group that was part of the broad revolutionary coalition that overthrew the Shah but then was purged in 1981, after which it aligned itself with Saddam Hussein’s dictatorship. While this cult-like group is one of the best-organized exile orga¬nizations, it has little support inside Iran because of its alliance with archenemy Iraq during the Iran–Iraq War.
In an article titled ““Countering Iran's Nuclear Challenge” in Heritage Foundation’s website, “James Phillips”, John C. Hulsman, Ph.D., and James Jay Carafano, Ph.D. have discussed the issue of Mojahedin-e khalq: “The PMO is a non-democratic Marxist terrorist group that was part of the broad revolutionary coalition that overthrew the Shah but then was purged in 1981, after which it aligned itself with Saddam Hussein’s dictatorship. While this cult-like group is one of the best-organized exile orga¬nizations, it has little support inside Iran because of its alliance with archenemy Iraq during the Iran–Iraq War. Moreover, the PMO resorted to terrorism against the Shah’s regime and was responsible for the assas¬sinations of at least four American military officers in Iran during the 1970s. It demonstrated in sup¬port of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 and against the release of the American hostages in 1981. The U.S. cannot afford to support an organi¬zation with such a long history of terrorism if it expects Tehran to halt its own terrorism. The United States should not try to play favorites among the various Iranian opposition groups, but should instead encourage them to cooperate under the umbrella of the broadest possible coalition. However, Washington should rule out support for the People’s Mujahideen Organization (PMO or Mujahideen Khalq) and its front group, the National Council of Resistance.”
