Daniel Larison, writer for The American Conservative Magazine, discusses the many prominent Democrats and Republicans trying to whitewash the MEK’s image; evidence that most US supporters are ignorant of the group’s terrorist credentials (and that the “M” stands for “Mujahadeen”); why MEK members are still regarded as traitors in Iran, and kooky ones at that; doubting their transformation from armed revolutionaries into peaceful democratic reformers; how the MEK got their unique blend of Islamic Marxism; and why de-listing the MEK from the State Department’s Foreign Terrorist Organization list will provide a backdoor to war, not help a “popular Iranian resistance.”

Daniel Larison writes the blog “Eunomia” at The American Conservative.

  1. I think the MEK has been covered. I know I'm bored with the damn topic. I also know that Antiwar.com readers are split onthe issue. Is Scott Horton unable to talk about Libya? Does he believe he's given us enough coverage of Iraq and Afghanistan?
    He's dangerously close to becoming nutty Sy Hersh running around in 2005 with convicted felon Scott Ritter screaming "The US is going to attack Iran! Bush is starting another war!"

  2. Come on, Clint. The U.S. wants to control Iran. The MEK is an important part of being able to do so. That's not nutty.

  3. Russian TV (oh, the irony!) published an excellent article on this subject yesterday. It's a must read:
