Just days ago the United States delisted the anti-Iranian MKO terrorist group so they could be funded to conduct attacks against Iran and work to destabilize the Iranian government.
US Delists MEK Terrorists So They Can Be Funded To Attack Iran
An Iranian group called MEK has been removed from the US government’s terrorist list so they can now be funded to launch covert ops against Iran.
Among their crimes, in addition to killing US citizens and US military members, are recent bombing sprees in Iran and the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists.
Just days after being delisted supporters of the organization have attacked an Iranian diplomat on the streets of New York City attending the United Nation’s General Assembly.
Press TV reports:MKO supporters attack Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman in New York
Mehmanparast and several other Iranian officials were walking to their hotel when they were surrounded and assaulted by supporters of the anti-Iran MKO terrorists on Wednesday.
New York City police and the US security forces made no arrests as the attackers physically abused members of the Iranian delegation accompanying Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in his visit to the United States to address the 67th session of the UN General Assembly.
The US is responsible for the security of all diplomatic delegations attending the UN meetings as the host to the world body.
The MKO is listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community and has committed numerous terrorist acts against Iranians and Iraqis.
However, the United States is reportedly planning to remove the MKO from the US State Department’s list of terrorist organizations.
On September 21, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sent the US Congress a classified communication about the decision.
