The magazine In These Times reports that in his previous position with the lobbying firm DLA Piper, Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey promoted the interests of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, otherwise known as Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK), an organization that the State Department brands a terrorist group. According to the State Department, MEK blends Marxist and Islamic tenets, and was founded to overthrow the U.S.-backed Shah of Iran. In 1975 and 1976, MEK is alleged to have killed seven American defense advisers to the Shah. MEK achieved its original purpose when, working with followers of Ayatollah Khomeini, the group took part in the Islamic revolution, seized the American Embassy in Tehran and sent the Shah into exile. MEK later allied itself with Saddam Hussein to undermine the Islamic government of Iran. Armey also represented the Iranian-American businessman Saied Ghaemi, who from 2005-2008, paid DLA Piper $910,000 specifically for Armey's services bringing issues relating to Iran to the attention of Congress, the State Department, the Department of Defense, the White House, the National Security Council and the Department of Treasury.

I swear to God (or Allah) you couldn't make this shit up if you tried. Right wingers are literally treasonous cowards who hate America........

Kind of a grey area though.

The Shah may have been backed by the US but he was a cunt of the highest order. In fact as usual by backing a nasty bastard then the West always ends up suffering when the inevitable revolution comes followed by the anti West backlash.

Let's focus on the assholes who passed that corporate looting bill on Sunday. Fuck the tea bag side show, and let's focus on the real issues.

When the side show is being directed by a shitbag who fronts for commie terrorists, and his current employers are the Koch Brothers, who are even worse corporate looters than the insurance industry, that makes it relevant.

As for the actual two digit IQ morons at the teabagger riots, I agree that they are only slightly more significant than the occupants of an expired roach motel, aside from the fact that their unbelievable gullibility and ignorance allows this sort of bullshit deception to continue.
