US "Trained Mojahedin in Nevada"

Seymour Hersh on U.S. Aid to Iranian Group Tied to Scientist Killings Journalist Seymour Hersh has revealed that the Bush administration secretly trained an Iranian opposition group on the State Department’s list of foreign terrorists. Hersh reports the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command trained operatives from Mujahideen-e-Khalq, or MEK, at a secret site in Nevada beginning in 2005. According to Hersh, MEK members were trained in intercepting communications, cryptography, weaponry and small unit tactics at the Nevada site up until President Obama took office >>>

Everytime the left and hezis are short on logic....they bring out issues such as.....Hirsh is well respected journalist...etc.  

Buddy- it is of ZERO relevance if Hirsh is or is not a great and respected journalist - he is wrong and misguided on this one.  But for your personal benefit - Hirsh is anti-American.  Whether his always pointy articles is in supppot or funded by the Russians, the Euro Royals, or even the Arabs remains to be seen - but one thing is for sure...he is anti Uncl Sam.  He is the type who will cause another McCarthism in America very soon.

Re: "Monarchist partriotism: Iran comes before the rest"

Not so,

The remaining monarchies in the world are being overthrown by the people left and right

for being dictatorial, corrupted, foregin puppets, ineffective, repressive and blood thirsty.

Case in point: Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, etc.

How else just one individual could run a large country but by torturing, imprisonment and killing of the opposition, case in point Shah and his family, taking billions of Iranian peoples' money and running out of country, what a brave bunch!

Darius Jaan, Patriotism in a land of kings is defined by those who speak of it:
  • Tudehi's patriotism: USSR's interests come before Iran's
  • Islamic patriotism: Islam's interests come before Iran's
  • MEK patriotism: Masoud and Maryam interests come before Iran's
  • Jebhe Melli patriotism: Mossadegh's and his worshippers' interests come before Iran's
  • Republican patriotism: Party's interests come before Iran's 
  • Monarchist partriotism: Iran comes before the rest

In principle if the United States is adopting the correct approach by training a liberation army to fight the IR. 

However, the USA should remove the banner of the MEK and Rajavi and strart a new secular Iranian liberation army.

The IR needs to be destroyed by hook or by crook.

Technique # 1 from the handbook: "shoot the piano player"

by iraj khan on

So the reactionary rightwing, Ya Israel-Ya Reza Pahlavi-Ya Rajavi could repeat their same old boring nonsense on IC.

First of all, Seymour Hersh is a respected Jewish American journalist who has won many awards for the integrity of his reporting:

Seymour (Sy) Myron Hersh (born April 8, 1937) is an American Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist and author based in Washington, D.C. He is a regular contributor to The New Yorker magazine on military and security matters. He has also won two National Magazine Awards and is a "five-time Polk winner and recipient of the 2004 George Orwell Award."[5]

He first gained worldwide recognition in 1969 for exposing the My Lai Massacre and its cover-up during the Vietnam War, for which he received the 1970 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting. His 2004 reports on the US military's mistreatment of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison gained much attention.

And the IR trains, funds and arms the Lebanese Hezbollah

by Anonymous Observer on

which is an anti-U.S. terrorist group and which blew up the Marine barracks in Beirut, and was behind the hijacking of American airliners and taking Americans hostage and killing American UN officers in Lebanon. 

The IR also trains, funds and arms anti-American groups in Iraq, which have been involved in untold number of attacks against American soldiers resulting in the death of  many American service men and women.

The IR was also probably involved in giving safe passage and refuge to Al-Qaeda operatives prior and post 9/11.

Therefore: So what?  Even if this story is true, here's the answer: payback is a bitch.  You people are barking up the wrong tree with your usual revolutionary, knee jerk anti-Americanism.  You should hold your own lovely mullah government responsible for creating an environment where everyone in the world has become our enemy. And no, it's not because we are such great people and everyone wants to enslave us and steal our women.  It's because we are a nation of **holes that picks on everyone--and everyone, in return, picks on us.  

In sum: stop shouting "marg bar amrika" and stop supporting terrorism against the U.S. and others, and the U.S. will leave you alone.   

PS- if you want the mullahs gone, you should also stop being their willing, or unwilling, propaganda agents by vomitting up their BS about the MEK day in and day out.  You should also cut down on your chelo kabab trips to Iran where you take hard currency there and buy real estate and keep the IR's mafia economy afloat.

If I were merely an American Citizen I would actually think it is a good idea and a good investment for America's Interests in the same way a Russian or Chinese would see supporting Assad in the interests of their own Country/Government.

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke


Perhaps one day we will witness justice…

by Bavafa on

When the likes of Khamenie, RajaviS, Natanyahoo and GWB/Cheney are brought up to the ICC and are faced to account for their crimes against humanity.

And what is really incredible is the mindset that the opponent of an evil regime (read IRI) must be absolutely pure and fault free (read USA, Israel and MEK).

  The fact remains that MEK is the single most hated/despised group by Iranians and US/Israel using these as mercenaries will only result in more distrust of Iranians towards USA and Israel and by that notion, circling their wagon to fight back. 

'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory 



Tug of war!

by Arj on

Unfortunately, the often unnoticed truth is that these folks (MEK/PMOI) are the victims here. Indeed, they are being held hostage in a tug of war between a brutal, fundamentalist regime -- that has offered them nothing but death and violence from the get-go -- on the one hand, and war profiteers connected to the military industrial complex in the U.S. system, who want to use them as cannon-fodder, on the other!

masoudA the mek was started/funded by UK

by amirparvizforsecularmonarchy on

The problem is the USA then after 1974 switched sides and as world leader pursued colonialistic policy for Iran alog with the rest.  The so called good years, were because of the late shah, who mostly struggled against all sides opposing the changes he was causing by helping develop iran in opposition to western plans.



Gross exaggeration & insinuation by Hersh on 1 point

by maghshoosh on

Around min 38:56 of the video, Hersh states, "And I learned—I was told at the time that Israel was behind that intelligence, that it really didn’t come from the MEK
themselves. Israel, as you know—there are what, something like a
million-and-a-half Iranian Jews, many of whom fled the country when the
Shah fell. And Israel still has a pretty good net of—intelligence net
inside Iran, so it wasn’t illogical."

His estimate of world-wide Persian Jewish population is off by at least a factor of 5.  The Wikipedia estimates it as "Today, there are an estimated 300,000–350,000 Jews of full or partial Persian ancestry living predominantly in Israel, with significant communities in the United States and Iran."  Many of those of "partial ancestry" are a couple of generations removed from their Persian heritage and mostly likely not very familiar with it.

Hersh throws around his overestimate of the Persian Jewish population, in an attempt to insinuate their complicity in spying against Iran for Israel, while providing no evidence to that effect.  The most recent such allegation by Iran, going back around a decade, was the case of the "Shiraz 13," which was mostly viewed as a farce, as reported at this site.  I'd never heard anyone before suggesting Persian Jews as an intelligence source for Israel, esp. since their influence or presence, like that of other religious minorities in Iran, inside the Iranian governement, except for a parliament member, is essentially nil.


Incredible!!!! woooow

by masoudA on

It’s amazing to see all it takes to keep IR afloat and Iran miserable!! The famous anti-American Seymour Hirsh publishes yet another anti-USA article in support of his handlers in Europe, and in keeping the Anglo-Russian anti human and anti Iran alliance happy – then a dubious character named Mohammad Alireza (sounds more like an Iraqi name) posts the Hirsh article on IC straight from Iran!!!  This whole thing reminds me of the Mullah Nasredin story when the thief was running yelling Ay Dozd, Ay Dozd….. the Anglo-Russian alliance keeps pointing to USA and Israel yelling Ay Dozd Ay Dozd…….They are rubbing us blind while making sure we blame USA, Israel,…….The only decent time we had in Iran in the last 300 years have been the 30+ years between WW2 and 1978 - and mainly because of the American presence in Iran.....we then went back to the miseries of the anglo-russian entente in 1978.....and they keep feeding us BS on how our biggest enemy is USA!!!


Meanwhile,Has it occurred to any of you if the killed scientists were trying to immigrate out of Iran – just like millions of others….knew too much and were killed by IR?   If that is not one of the scenarios you are contemplating, then you best leave politics alone…..but if it is – then Mr. Hirsh is clearing IR of these crimes and people like Mr. Mohammad Alireza are disseminating the propaganda from Tehran.    Dear Amirparviz,I have no doubt under Bush, USA absorbed and trained some ex MKO members, but I also have ZERO doubt, MKO the organization was created and is still financed by the colonialists in Northern Europe.

by amirparvizforsecularmonarchy on

democracy not surprise me?

Look at what happened when the USA wanted to promote human rights, they brought khomeini with their allies.  When people are not skeptical regarding the USA that is what surprises me these days.  Who is the USA to talk, representing a country where democracy is not found.  I am always surprised people believed in the USA's smear campaign against the late shah, savak and his governments human rights record, considering the guy did peace treaties with all his neighbours and unlike the USA did not commit grave crimes against the people of neighbouring countries.  The so-called opposition the MeK and others who insist on creating smear campaigns against Savak are not surprising, it says everything one really needs to know about them. 

Reminds me of machiavelli teaching that coming to power based on lies and deceit will not work for the prince because he has to consider his countries future and his sons future reign, but may work if used by his enemies as they are just focussed on the aim of usurping power.
