It should be noted that the US has well understood that the MKO can be used in deals. Nothing has been left from all the noises warmongers made on this group, except exploiting it in Iraq. It has been proved, now after two or three years in Iraq and particularly after the elections, that the MKO can not have any influence in Iraq affairs. Therefore, what's important for Americans is to get something in a deal with Iran.
Instead of thinking over the issue of selling Massoud Rajavi to Iran in order to solve a part of problems in ties with Iran, it's better for Americans to prepare an international court to put Massoud Rajavi on trial and receive the complaints of tens of thousands of victims of terrorist operations in Iraq and Iran; in this way, Americans can prove the legitimacy of the slogan of "fighting terrorism" and can put it to historical judgment. When the MKO wants to save Massoud Rajavi from legal prosecutions, it tries to pretend to be very valuable and advice the governments not to sell Rajavi to Iran with a cheap price. In 1986, when Interpol issued Massoud's arrest warrant to the French government, Mojahedin frightened the government of the consequences and forced it to open the way for him to go to Iraq. They repeated this method with Saddam, when they were afraid of being sold to Iran, in Saddam's efforts to decrease international pressures. The fact is that the West comes to the table of negotiation in exchange of receiving advantages, but it sometimes suffers miscalculations and heightens the prices! They extradited Abdullah Odjalan, the leader of terrorist PKK (who was representing the requests of ethnic groups and his acceptability in political scene was higher than that of Massoud Rajavi) to Turkey and closed their eyes to what Turkey does to Kurds. All evidences indicate that the US is going to take advantage of the only ability of MKO; it's going to spend Rajavi in its deals with Iran: MKO was re-designated again as a terrorist organization, the control of Camp Ashraf is supposed to be transferred to Bulgarian forces, leaving the group has been facilitated for dissident members and …recently, Zalmy Khalilzad has been ordered to work on Iran's cooperation in Iraq. It should be noted that the US has well understood that the MKO can be used in deals. Nothing has been left from all the noises warmongers made on this group, except exploiting it in Iraq. It has been proved, now after two or three years in Iraq and particularly after the elections, that the MKO can not have any influence in Iraq affairs. Therefore, what's important for Americans is to get something in a deal with Iran. However, the scene is clear: Iran's seeking extradition and trial of Rajavi and has shown that it's not interested in dealing on him. A while ago, Iranian interior ministry announced that resolving issues related to them should only be done by Iraqi government and that "Iran has no problem from their part, but they make problems for Iraq." Iraqi people and political parties oppose the presence of this grou in Iraq and they recognize, based on Iraq's national interests, that terrorist group once supported by Saddam Hussein should not be backed again. There are only some groups in the US government who take Rajavi hostage and forced MKO to obey their orders to get advantages from Iran. It's still too soon to say if this deal will be practical, but US officials should know that there's no way except trying Massoud Rajavi in Iraq (apart from his extradition to Iran). They know well that there's nowhere in the world they can settle him and that no country is likely to accept him in its soil. Reactivating him in Iraq is impossible. In addition, they have understood that MKO and Rajavi are not useful even in Iraq. Therefore, according to the decision of top US officials (who say the group is a terrorist organization), the best option is to pursue the crimes of the group and Rajavi himself. With this, US authorities will sure get more credibility.
