Just as with Iraq during Bush Jr.'s presidency, under Obama nothing truly has changed with administration's character when it comes to its perception about Iran and her so-called controversial nuclear program.

Like Ahmed Chalabi of the Iraqi National Congress (INC) we have the Mujahideen-e-Khalq, or MEK, an Iranian opposition group to excite our warmongers to justify a covert and overt war with Iran. Forgotten there is the fact that the group had collaborated with Saddam Hussein of Iraq, who provided it with funds and a compound, Camp Ashraf, north of Baghdad. With tanks provided by the Iraqi dictator, the group brutally crushed down Iraqi Kurdish people in the early 1990s.

Recently, Pulitzer-winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has revealed that the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) has trained operatives from MEK at a secret site in Nevada. Writing in The New Yorker, Hersh reports JSOC began training the MEK in 2005 even though the group has been listed as a foreign terrorist organization by the State Department.

The training included intercepting communications, cryptography, weaponry and small unit tactics. Last month, NBC reported that members of the MEK have been involved in the assassinations of five Iranian nuclear scientists. [1] It is believed that the CIA and Mossad provided the material support for such murders.

And then there is the Jundallah, a terrorist organization, based in Iranian Balochistan, which has been linked to, and taken credit for, numerous acts of terror, kidnapping and the smuggling of narcotics. It has been fighting a proxy war against Iran on behalf of the CIA and Mossad. [2]

Iranian authorities and several other sources such as the ABC News, Daily Telegraph, and journalist Seymour Hersh have also reported that Jundullah, like the MEK, has received support from the United States against the government of Iran.

What is even more disturbing is that some former Washington officials, e.g., Tom Ridge, Rudy Giuliani, Francis Townsend, Louis Freeh, Hugh Shelton, John Bolton, have been vocally advocating on MEK's behalf, often in exchange for large payments.

As Jeremiah Goulka recently noted in the salon.com, given the cacophony of saber-rattling over Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program - which the U.S. intelligence community generally believes was shut down in 2003 - and the risk, however low, of actually getting prosecuted for "material support of terrorism," it is important to examine why anyone would promote a designated terrorist organization. These officials were paid to speak on the MEK's behalf, up to $30,000 per speech. [3]
