In his article on Antiwar.com on Monday, Justin Raimondo wrote about the MKO's advocates among the US presidential candidates and their being motivated to take part in the MKO campaign for taking out of the US list of foreign terrorist groups mostly for private gain.

This American author says "Bolton has long championed the Mujahadeen-e-Khalq (Peoples' Mujahideen, or MEK), an Islamo-Marxist cult widely hated in Iran."

Earlier last month Newt Gingrich promised to appoint the controversial former ambassador to the United Nations for President George W. Bush, John Bolton, to be secretary of state if elected president.

The analyst also warned that under a Gingrich administration we would witness the spectacle of the US Army "installing in power a group currently on the US State Department's list of terrorist organizations".

Some months earlier Republican figures including John Bolton, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, and former Attorney General Michael Mukasey also took part in the campaign to remove MKO from US blacklist.

He made reference to another Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts governor, Mitt Romney, and stated that "Romney, too, has his MEK connection," alluding to Romney's especial advisor, Mitchell Reiss, who is a leading supporter for Mujahedin-e Khalq terrorist group.

The editorial director of Antiwar.com also pointed out that Mujahedin-e Khalq enjoys "widespread support on Capitol Hill" and stated that "this is the only terrorist group I know of that is allowed to maintain an unofficial embassy in Washington through various front groups".

He raised a question that "could it have something to do with the large amounts of cash the MEK front groups in Washington are throwing around?" concluding that some of these supporters are somehow motivated to take part in the campaign in Washington to remove the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK, MKO, PMOI, Rajavi cult) from the US list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations mostly by the desire for private gain and, in fact, are charged by MKO's front groups.
