US State Department lobbies for terrorist group?
Since May of this year, the Obama administration has been pushing to have a terrorist organization removed from the terrorist watch list. The Mujahadeen- e-Khalq of Iran is allegedly responsible for assassinating US citizens and even worked together with Saddam Hussein. The group has been on the watch list for approximately 15 years, so why is there this push to remove the MEK as terrorists? Jamal Abdi, policy director at The National Iranian American Council, takes a closer look at the possible motives.
