While pontificating ad nauseam about the need to make the world safe from radical Islam, President George W. Bushâ€™s regime was training Islamist terrorists. The training went on from 2005 until 2007, while America was supposedly knee-deep in the so-called â€śWar on Terror.â€ť
Writing for The New Yorker, journalist Seymour M. Hersh says a group of Iranians associated with Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, or MEK, were being trained in terror operations by the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) at the Department of Energyâ€™s Nevada National Security Site. MEK, a Marxist-Islamist group listed by the U.S. State Department as a terror organization, is linked to the assassination of six Americans in the 1970s. It also participated in the revolution that led to the overthrow of the American puppet Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran, in 1979 (who was placed in power by the CIA).
So what are these American-trained MEK terrorists up to now? They are carrying out terror attacks in Iran, killing Iranians and destroying Iranian oil pipelines. Five Iranian nuclear scientists have been assassinated since 2007.
MEK denies its involvement, but last month NBC News quoted two senior Barack Obama Administration officials as confirming the assassinations were carried out by MEK with assistance from Mossad, the Israeli secret service organization. MEK, with United States and Mossad assistance, has also disrupted Iranian oil pipelines, Hersh reported.
â€śThe M.E.K. was a total joke,â€ť a senior Pentagon consultant told Hersh, â€śand now itâ€™s a real network inside Iran. How did the M.E.K. get so much more efficient?â€ť he asked rhetorically. â€śPart of it is the training in Nevada. Part of it is logistical support in Kurdistan, and part of it is inside Iran. M.E.K. now has a capacity for efficient operations that it never had before.â€ť
How long before this comes back to bite us? Remember that Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaida terror network were created and trained by the CIA.
The so-called war on terror is not what it seems. America and America-based non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are arming and providing assistance to terrorists in Iran. America, NATO and NGOs are doing the same with al-Qaida terrorists in Syria. And they armed and provided air cover to al-Qaida terrorists in Libya.
Why shouldnâ€™t the U.S. State Department place the United States on its list of state sponsors of terror alongside Cuba, Iran, Syria and North Korea?
