CIA interrogators are well aware of the history of changing the facts and realities in the MKO but since they were following other purposes, they accepted to receive some intelligence from Rajavi and in return transfer his answers (about what he calls accusations of the State Department) to decision makers in this agency- although they know that these claims are all false and they even reject responsibly for these claims and use "Rajavi claims" in their reports.
US State Department released its annual terrorism report on April 28. The report introduces the MKO, an all its different names, as a terrorist organization. The report again reflects the fact that Mojahedin's efforts to deal with the US and resorting to different figures and lobbies to get out of the list have all failed. There are some changes in this new report, which have been made with considerations different from those in the past. Changes could be a result of: 1. Comments of DoD experts, after interrogating MKO members and analyzing ways to use this group, 2. CIA agents' contacts with State Department to transfer Massoud Rajavi's views and comments, after interrogating him. For the first part, we should note that warmongers believe that MKO's name on US list of terrorist organizations is an obstacle in the way of taking advantage of this group. MKO's being on the list didn't allow them to convince Bush and Secretary of State to agree with their plans; therefore they started trying to get the group off the list. Of course, later they found that there was no obstacle in using Mojahedin in the case there was a need to do so and that their efforts would be of no use when they were in full control of MKO. For the second part, one should note that CIA's interrogation of Rajavi has been an excellent deal in which Rajavi accepted their conditions and instead received some advantages; on the other hand, they received what they wanted from Rajavi in return for accepting Rajavi's requests. One part of CIA's interrogation of Rajavi was related to the activities of the MKO before the revolution… including covert activities of the organization, planning the assassination of US contractors, contacts with Russia and Iraq, the fate of important stolen documents and … In describing the history of Mojahedin, Rajavi has brought many changes to the ideology, positions, and activities of Mojahedin; he has claimed that MKO's anti-Imperialist positions are rooted in nationalist tendencies of the group. He even has criticized policies of the US, hiding MKO's terrorist ideas and actions behind Bazargan and Mosaddegh. Massoud Rajavi attributes all MKO military actions against Americans to Marxist deviants, particularly "Taghi Shahram"! CIA interrogators are well aware of the history of changing the facts and realities in the MKO but since they were following other purposes, they accepted to receive some intelligence from Rajavi and in return transfer his answers (about what he calls accusations of the State Department) to decision makers in this agency- although they know that these claims are all false and they even reject responsibly for these claims and use "Rajavi claims" in their reports. Generally, three factors have been influential in this report, which in fact can be considered MKO's defense. However, the claims used by MKO as defense have added to the emphasis of the report in calling MKO a terrorist organization. In description of the group, we read: 1. After Khomeini’s regime arrested most of the MEK leadership a few years after the Islamic Revolution, many members fled to Europe. 2. A Marxist element of the MEK murdered several of the Shah’s U.S. security advisers prior to the Islamic Revolution 3. In April 2000, the MEK attempted to assassinate the commander of the Nasr Headquarters, Tehran’s interagency board responsible for coordinating policies on Iraq. First, Rajavi wants- by lying and reversing the facts- to show that MKO leadership's escape to Europe was planned by the Iranian regime while the main reason for their escape was related to the failure of the coup on June 20, 1981, and MKO's efforts to overthrow the regime by bombings and terrorist activities. Second, anti-American operations during Shah's rulership has been attributed to Marxists, without explaining whether the MKO supported such acts or not!? Although even this explanation can't help Mojahedin whitewash its involvement in these operations since they officially claimed responsibility for killing Americans in MKO's journal (Mojahed). Third, Rajavi tries to link terror operations by his own terror teams to Americans' concerns in Iraq (and MKO's current propaganda) and that's why he highlights attempt to assassinate the head of Nasr Headquarters (brigadier general Seifallahi) and presents it as a gift to Americans! However, this year's report includes a number of important notes, which prove that Rajavi's deceptions have not worked. Documents discovered after the fall of Saddam Hussein also add to the strength of State Department's decision: 1. Mentioning each and every terrorist operation by the MKO during 1980s indicates that Mojahedin meets criteria for being listed as terrorist due to performing terrorist operations in Iran. It also shows that MKO's claim that "American interrogators have found no evidence of MKO's involvement in terrorist operations in the West and therefore the group should be de-listed" has been fully ignored. 2. "Before Operation Iraqi Freedom, the group received all of its military assistance, and most of its financial support from the former Iraqi regime", which proves MKO's claim on independence from former Iraqi regime can't be accepted. 3. "In 1991, the MEK reportedly assisted the Government of Iraq in suppressing the Shia uprisings in southern Iraq and the Kurdish uprisings in the north", which invalids all efforts by Mojahedin to make doubt on this historical event. Considering all aspects of this report and the fact that MKO tries to affect it, it should be noted that MKO's terrorist policy, violent characteristics and crimes are so well documented that no one can change the report and supporters of the group should keep in touch with the group only in secret and with dishonor.
