America, remember when Bush and his Administration told us that Saddam was aiding terrorist and in fact they had a training camp in Iraq. Well that was the truth, Lets Talk.
The terrorist that were in Iraq was the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), it's the largest and most militant group opposed to the Islamic Republic of Iran. Also known as the People’s Mujahedeen Organization of Iran, MEK is led by husband and wife Massoud and Maryam Rajavi. MEK was added to the U.S. State Department’s list of foreign terrorist groups in 1997. They began supporting Iraq in its eight-year war against Khomeini’s Iran. In 1986, MEK moved its headquarters to Iraq where it received its primary support to attack the regime in Iran.
So America, it turns out we knew (MEK), was in Iraq and that they had nothing to do with the attacks on 9/11. Even though our President and his Administration forgot to tell us this.
Now let me give you the recent information on these terrorist. The US army secured a key MEK facility 60 miles northwest of Baghdad shortly after the 2003 invasion, but they did not secure the MEK, we disarmed them of major weapons but not small arms. Donald Rumsfeld, under pressure from Vice President Cheney, came up with a plan to convert the MEK by having them simply quit their organization and we began using the group on special ops missions into Iran to pave the way for a potential Iran strike.
We are already told that our military are operating in Iran, Sen. Kucinich sent a letter to President Bush about the presence of US troops in Iran.
I wonder, has our President informed the House and Senate about such operations? Do anyone know exactly what this President is doing with our military and the MEK?
In my last post I talk about how this man disregards any and every law that we have here in the United States.
"Article I, section 8 of the Constitution empowers Congress, not the president, to debate and decide to declare war on another country. The War Powers Resolution provides that the “constitutional powers of the President as Commander-in-Chief to introduce United States Armed Forces into hostilities, or into situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated by the circumstances, are exercised only pursuant to (1) a declaration of war, (2) specific statutory authorization, or (3) a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories, or possessions or its armed forces."
When will this House and Senate start doing the job that we elected them to do and stop this President from disregarding the Constitution and the War power Act of 1973?
