Excuse me?

Reader comment on item: Resettling the Mujahedeen-e Khalq of Iraq

Submitted by Peter Herz (United States), Apr 1, 2012 at 22:10

Can someone please explain what, exactly, does the USA owe to the Mojaheddin-e-Khalq? Yes, they're enemies of the mullah-ocracy, but they were also among the groups that occupied the US Embassy in Tehran back in 1979 and took hostages, at least until the Students Following the Line of Imam Khomeini started beating up on them. This strikes me as the MEK starting out by saying that the only possible relationship between them and the USA is unrelenting hostility. Hence, if anyone else feels they should not be allowed in the USA, you won't get any argument from me.
