Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, tweeted on Saturday that MEK is a viable alternative to the rule of the mullahs in Iran.

Rudy, of course, didn’t bother to point out that NCRI is a front organization for MEK, short for Mojahedin-e Khalq, the terrorist organization that wants, with the help of the neocons, to rule Iran.


There have been quite a few former officials, politicians, and retired military officers that have been cheerleading for the MEK over the last few years, but Bolton is one of their oldest and most consistent American supporters,” writes Daniel Larison.

Bolton, like Giuliani, is slimy with MEK blood money.

The article was written a few months ago so Saturday doesn’t refer to last Saturday.

So it's "hot"? Or "not".

It’s hot considering Trump is currently adding to the overthrow of the Iranian government and if you are interested in who he is backing to take over.

A restart from the Bush years. A New Yorker article from 2012:

Our Men in Iran?

https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/our-men-in-iran

It was here [Nevada] that the Joint Special Operations Command (jsoc) conducted training, beginning in 2005, for members of the Mujahideen-e-Khalq, a dissident Iranian opposition group known in the West as the M.E.K. The M.E.K. had its beginnings as a Marxist-Islamist student-led group and, in the nineteen-seventies, it was linked to the assassination of six American citizens. It was initially part of the broad-based revolution that led to the 1979 overthrow of the Shah of Iran. But, within a few years, the group was waging a bloody internal war with the ruling clerics, and, in 1997, it was listed as a foreign terrorist organization by the State Department. In 2002, the M.E.K. earned some international credibility by publicly revealing—accurately—that Iran had begun enriching uranium at a secret underground location. Mohamed ElBaradei, who at the time was the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nations’ nuclear monitoring agency, told me later that he had been informed that the information was supplied by the Mossad. The M.E.K.’s ties with Western intelligence deepened after the fall of the Iraqi regime in 2003, and jsoc began operating inside Iran in an effort to substantiate the Bush Administration’s fears that Iran was building the bomb at one or more secret underground locations. Funds were covertly passed to a number of dissident organizations, for intelligence collection and, ultimately, for anti-regime terrorist activities. Directly, or indirectly, the M.E.K. ended up with resources like arms and intelligence. Some American-supported covert operations continue in Iran today, according to past and present intelligence officials and military consultants.

Despite the growing ties, and a much-intensified lobbying effort organized by its advocates, M.E.K. has remained on the State Department’s list of foreign terrorist organizations—which meant that secrecy was essential in the Nevada training. “We did train them here, and washed them through the Energy Department because the D.O.E. owns all this land in southern Nevada,” a former senior American intelligence official told me. “We were deploying them over long distances in the desert and mountains, and building their capacity in communications—coördinating commo is a big deal.” (A spokesman for J.S.O.C. said that “U.S. Special Operations Forces were neither aware of nor involved in the training of M.E.K. members.”)

The training ended sometime before President Obama took office, the former official said. In a separate interview, a retired four-star general, who has advised the Bush and Obama Administrations on national-security issues, said that he had been privately briefed in 2005 about the training of Iranians associated with the M.E.K. in Nevada by an American involved in the program. They got “the standard training,” he said, “in commo, crypto [cryptography], small-unit tactics, and weaponry—that went on for six months,” the retired general said. “They were kept in little pods.” He also was told, he said, that the men doing the training were from jsoc, which, by 2005, had become a major instrument in the Bush Administration’s global war on terror. “The jsoc trainers were not front-line guys who had been in the field, but second- and third-tier guys—trainers and the like—and they started going off the reservation. ‘If we’re going to teach you tactics, let me show you some really sexy stuff…’ ”

I’m wondering about that plane now. What better way to make the leaders look bad?

"who he is backing to take over. " You wrote ^^^ that that was a few months ago. How do you know that is the current position?

Elvis,, look at what Giuliani is doing in Albania and Iran. Don’t ask me to do your homework, there is a wealth of information on the Internet other than the RW propaganda. Trump et al is working for regime change in Iran and we should be interested in who they are backing.

Kathy, Kathy, Kathy. SMH. You don't assign "homework", Kathy. OTOH, when you turn in a piece of work that is 6 months old, you're going to be called out on it. Shrug.

Elvis, you might not want to admit what Trump is doing in Iran but that won’t stop it from happening.

Trump has been getting advice on Iran from officials and allies linked to a shadowy Iranian dissident group that celebrated Soleimani's death

What are you wondering about?

Adopted, nothing now. There are a lot of different groups in Iran and I wondered if one of them decided to take matters into their own hands. If so, we will probably never know. It’s a tragic accident but no person has been held responsible in Iran that we know yet other than the leaders themselves, which is as it should be. Maybe we will hear more down the road about how it came about.

MEK is one of those although-reported-few-know-about groups.

They've been around for a long time, and periodically used by the US for dirty ops.
