Scott Horton Interviews Daniel Larison
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.”
