The MEK was originally an armed group opposed to the Iranian monarchy before the revolution, and during that period it was also responsible for killing several Americans.
The MEK has not changed. They remain at their core the same militant and extremist organization they have been for decades. Cheering on the MEK is as crazy and irresponsible as endorsing the Lord’s Resistance Army or defending the Khmer Rouge, and it is not an accident that the group has sometimes been likened to the latter. Unfortunately, because they hate the Iranian government and make the right noises about democracy, they are given a free pass and Iran hawks embrace them as allies. In the past, participants in MEK summits have ranged from Newt Gingrich, John Bolton, and Rudy Giuliani to Joe Lieberman, Tom Ridge, and John McCain. This year it included former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Michele Flournoy, the current Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Bob Menendez, his fellow New Jerseyan Sen. Cory Booker, and many other members of Congress. The speakers routinely declare that the MEK and its allies are the “real” opposition working towards “secular democracy,” they denounce the Iranian government, and they call for some form of regime change.
The Director General of the National Colombian Police, General Jorge Luis Vargas is convinced that Commissioner Dimitri Hérard, Head of the General Security Unit of the National Palace (USGPN) in Haiti, is a key element in establishing what happened in the early morning of July 7, when the President was assassinated.
Jorge Luis Vargas also wants to establish what Dimitri Hérard did in Colombia during 7 trips to Ecuador, Colombia and the Dominican Republic, between January 2021 and last May, even if the capital of the country Bogotá “does not seem to be a stopover”.
