Al Jazeera English examines the support of leading US politicians for the Mujahedin-e Khalq, March 2012
Looking again at President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton, I think that as they fell for the straight-forward lobbying, they had to find a reason to convince themselves that they were doing this for the "greater good".
But what could that be?
Just like I needed to find enough money for my cigarettes, the US is desperate. Washington has repeatedly tried to find ways to somehow find a peaceful solution to Iran's implicit and explicit threats to Israel's security. The thinking in the White House could be, "Maybe if we get the MEK off the list. They can work with the other Iranian opposition groups abroad and maybe…just maybe…there would be some sort of a solution that does not involve Israel bombing Iran's nuclear installations! So let's try something else one more time --- however small the chances."
