Debating The Mek

This article in Front Page Magazine, which recommends some sort of American recognition of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (apparently the political arm of the Mujahedin-e Khalq), has generated an important debate, or at least the beginnings of one. Doctor Zin of the valuable Regime Change Iran blog has weighed in against American support for the MEK, which is a designated foreign terrorist organization; and Dan Darling of Winds of Change seconds his thoughts. Without getting into the merits of the MEK, it is possible to say that the nonviolent “third option” recommended by the Front Page article need not rely on them specifically; for example, this broadly supported referendum appeal isn’t interested in U.S. backing for any one opposition group.

Meanwhile, reports about Iran’s nuclear program have become increasingly troubling.
