US Congressman Blasts Anti-Iran Terrorist Group's Influence on US Officials http://english.farsnews.com/newstext.php?nn=9005081017
US Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) strongly lambasted FBI for repressing anti-war and international solidarity activists, while ignoring US officials' overt and covert support for the terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO). "One of the biggest problems with vague criminal statutes is the opportunity they provide for differential enforcement. The Washington Post and other news sources have reported that former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, former Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge, former White House security adviser Frances Townsend,
and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani have publicly expressed their support for the Mojahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), an organization that has been on the foreign terrorist list of the State Department since 1997.
"I fully support their constitutional rights to express their opinions on this issue and any others. But, I don't understand why their support of a foreign terrorist organization goes unchallenged by law enforcement, while anti-war activists are targeted with FBI searches and grand jury subpoenas. Is there any distinction that justifies the different treatment of these two groups other than the fact that one of them is composed of prominent people who support the wars conducted by two successive administrations and the other is composed of ordinary people who do not?"
