Scott Peterson, staff writer for the Christian Science Monitor, discusses his article “Iranian group’s big-money push to get off US terrorist list;” the dozens of top former US officials on MEK’s payroll to lobby for terrorist group de-listing; refuting claims that the MEK’s terrorism is either ancient history or the work of fringe offshoot groups; US politicians making $20,000 for essentially saying “MEK is A-OK!” in a ten minute speech; suspicions that domestic Iranian organizations funding lobbying efforts may be front groups for foreign countries or intelligence agencies; and the similarities to the Iraqi National Congress, that helped lie us into war in 2003.

  1. Back in October of 2005 the Islamic Human Rights Commission described the British Home Secretary's proposed ban on another 15 extremist organisations as hypocritical and based on an Islamophobic agenda: “The double standards are again exposed, as not a single Zionist or Hindu extremist group has been listed.” IHRC Chair Massoud Shadjarek pointed out that it was “…very telling that Mr Clarke has not moved to proscribe terrorist groups such as Kach and Kahane Chai, even though they have been banned in the US and Israel itself…. on the very day London was bombed, a meeting was organised in the House of Lords by parliamentarians and lawyers in unlawful support of the banned Iranian terrorist organisation the MEK”. Curiouser and curiouser.

  2. A superb interview Scott. What a pitty you had to end it so early – Peterson was getting onto some really interesting stuff when it ended.

    Please get him back on again.

  3. Scott,

    Not sure if you've spoken with him before, but you might want to reach out to Daniel Larison and see if he would like to join you tomorrow. He's written a good amount on the MEK's lobbying attempts and their history….
