MKO has repeatedly claimed to be Iraq's strategic ally! It's not clear why Maliki's comments have made them upset and that why they resort Gen. Caldwell's statement to deny Maliki's comments.
Followoing the recent comments of the Iraqi PM Mr. Nuri al-Maliki on the terrorist group of MKO and announcing the decision of government to restrict the group, coalition forces spokesperson was asked about Mr. Maliki's comments. The person who asked General Caldwell said he was from Sumariya Channel! He naively changed Mr. Maliki's comments and asked his question this way: "General William, recently Prime Minister Nuri Maliki said that Mujahideen-e Khalq Organization in Iraq has influence in the bombings in Iraq, and there are military operations, kidnappings. The Iranian opposition group has the hand in these operations. He said that this organizing has impact in Iraq. What is the kind of the operation made by this organization? And do you have any information that -- about the intense performance of this organization in Baghdad?" In related news reported by Reuters and AFP, there is nothing in Mr. Maliki's comments indicating that MKO was involved in bombings in Iraq! The only thing Maliki said was that MKO has involved itself too much in Iraq's social and political affairs. This is not something new; MKO has repeatedly claimed to be Iraq's strategic ally! It's not clear why Maliki's comments have made them upset and that why they resort Gen. Caldwell's statement to deny Maliki's comments. However, Caldwell's answer is ambiguous, referring to 24 hours supervision of coalition on Camp Ashraf and controlling MKO members exit from the camp. Meanwhile, he has not explained about entering of Baathists, and pro-Saddam forces to Ashraf, which is the main channel for MKO to interfere in Iraq's internal affairs. What's clear in Caldwell's comments- despite MKO's efforts to take advantage of such comments to boost the morale of its members- is that according to standards and regulations MKO's final fate in Iraq should be determined by Iraq's permanent government. Caldwell said: "They're under continuous surveillance and control. Their future status does need to be eventually determined". So, the comments of coalition spokesman don't reject al-Maliki's statements but approve legal stand of the Iraqi government.
