This is a rehash of lies that have been uttered repeatedly in the past. First and foremost by the clerical regime, by conjuring up lies and stories such as that the MEK members, while having American military uniforms and boots in Sadr City, were engaged in massacring Iraqi Shiites. These reports that the MEK members have been brought to the US and specifically to Nevada for training is an absolute fabrication. It is not anything new and the MEK has denied it in the past.
Reciting these lies at this period is a hastily and panicky response by the clerical regime and its lobbyists to overshadow the effective position of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and the Iranian Resistance as a legitimate alternative to the clerical regime that is faced with deepening acute crisis.
It is not a coincidence that circulation of these stories is taking place at the same time as the bipartisan call of the most senior former U.S. officials and U.S. politicians, including many members of the Congress, for revoking the illegal and immoral listing of the MEK is growing constantly. This was also true of the clerical regime’s attempts to fictitiously implicate the MEK in the assassination of nuclear scientists and the futile attempt to attribute the plot to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador in the U.S. to the MEK.
We reject this article and the purported claims with posing two simple challenges:
Identify one – any one – member of the MEK that has been trained in Nevada.
The official who has made such a claim, with the passage of seven years, logically should be able to provide his name.
It is common knowledge that the only way to spread such fabrications and conjure up stories likes this is to hide behind anonymous and behind-the-scene sources. Any transparency dooms such a fabrication and removes any setting for it.
It is very telling that in order to corroborate its claims, the story has resorted to sources such as Masoud Khodabandeh, a notorious agent of the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence in Europe. That by itself shows how baseless and ludicrous these claims are, and that they are made up with political objectives. The documents proving that this individual is an agent of the Iranian regime have been exposed previously by the courts in the UK and by British Parliamentary groups.
