07/11/11 – Muhammad Sahimi – The Scott Horton Show

by | Jul 11, 2011 | Interviews

Muhammad Sahimi, Professor of Chemical Engineering and political columnist on Iran issues, discusses his article “Don’t Remove the MEK From the Terrorist List;” at antiwar.com; why the US chose to keep MEK leaders safe in Iraq after the 2003 invasion, rather than exchange them for al-Qaeda members held in Iran; the groundswell of support in the US (thanks to a suspiciously large budget, neoconservative allies and successful lobbying) for removing the MEK from the State Department’s list of terrorist groups; and how the group is effectively a proxy, used by Israel and the US, to effect regime change and/or start a war in Iran.
