The Poor Man read the Moonie Times to learn that we’ve got Israeli-trained Kurds and Saddam-loving terrorists infiltrating Iran in the north and the south.
The second group, working from the south, is the Mujahedeen-e Khalq, listed by the State Department as a terrorist group, operating from southern Iraq, these sources said.
The use of the MEK for U.S.-intelligence-gathering missions strikes some former U.S. intelligence officials as bizarre. The State Department’s annual publication, “Patterns of Global Terrorism,” lists them as a terrorist organization.
According to the State Department report, the MEK were allies with Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in fighting Iran and, in addition, assisted Saddam in “suppressing opposition within Iraq, and performed internal security for the Iraqi regime.”
