U.S. Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) trained members of the Iranian opposition group Mujahideen-e-Khalq (M.E.K.) at a secretive site in Nevada from 2005 to at least 2007, as reported by Seymour M. Hersh at The New Yorker.

M.E.K. has been listed as a “foreign terrorist organization” since 1997. It is a felony in U.S. law to knowingly provide material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization.

Five Iranian nuclear scientists have been assassinated since 2007. Early last month two senior Obama officials said that the attacks were the work of M.E.K. and that the group is “financed, trained and armed by Israel’s secret service [i.e. Mossad].”

    Delta hurting poor little Iran’s feelings again. If we can’t get the public , government and political support.to openly attack Iran might as well put the tier one boys on it. We can always count on them to take care of business.

    That article said: ” It is a felony in U.S. law to knowingly provide material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization.”

    That’s only true if the provider of that support is NOT the US govt.
