Letter to Chicago Tribune: Blaming Iran to save U.S.
M.A. Mohammadi, Press
Mission of Iran to the UN, New York
The author's main complaint against the
democratically elected prime minister of Iraq is that Mr. Maliki opposes the
continuing presence of this terrorist and brutal organization and its military
camp on Iraqi soil, recalling how they were embraced and used by the regime of
Saddam Hussein to conduct terrorist activities inside Iran and against Shiite
and Kurds in Iraq, who equally despise them. Intent on proving itself as a
valuable asset to the U.S. military and intelligence, the NCRI spokespersons
such as the author of the above-said article have been recycling verbatim the
false accusations against Iran with the aim to deflect attentions from the
failures of U.S.'s misguided policy in Iraq. Suffice to say that in both Iraq
and Afghanistan, the government leaders have praised Iran's good neighborly
policies in sharp contrast to the constant demonization of Iran by the U.S.
Government. Iran has supported the political process in Iraq and rendered
generous economic assistance to this war-stricken country. However, Iran is
convinced that the presence of foreign armed terrorist groups, including the
NCRI and its mother organization MKO, not only foments violence and instability
in Iraq, but also threatens the national security of the neighboring countries.
The mere fact that the Interpol has issued an arrest warrant for the outlaw
leaders of NCRI and MKO for their complicity in Saddam Hussein's brutal
suppression of Iraqis in 1991 speaks for itself.

media [outlets] are making space for individuals affiliated with known terrorist
