WASHINGTON, Nov. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is the letter sent to Politico on November 23rd, which NCRI-US releases publically, since Politico has refused to publish. Dear Editor, Daniel Benjamin's 3,326-word tirade (Giuliani Took Money From a Group That Killed Americans, Does Trump Care?, Politico Magazine, Nov. 23), is a litany of threadbare, oft-repeated, and long-debunked allegations, originally concocted by the murderous mullahs of Iran, against the main Iranian opposition movement, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK). It amounts to nothing more than a pitiful attempt to overshadow the failure of policy of appeasing the Iranian regime, which is universally condemned as the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism and the leading per capita executioner of its own citizens and for the slaughter of over 100,000 dissidents, including 15-year-old girls and pregnant women. One is reminded of the infamous saying, "Tell a lie that's big enough and repeat it often enough, and the whole world will believe it." In the best-case scenario, Mr. Benjamin's hyperbolic regurgitation of a defamatory MEK narrative from his time in office suggests that, unlike policy experts in Washington, he is unaware that these allegations and characterizations have since been refuted in detail by independent research, and formally discredited by successive high judicial investigations. His boss, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, demonstrated her lack of confidence in Mr. Benjamin's position in 2012 by removing the terrorist designation of the MEK to make US counter-terrorism policy consistent with those of the EU, UK, France, a large bi-partisan group of U.S. Congress members, and many bipartisan senior former leaders whose integrity Mr. Benjamin has impugned. We are left only with the awkward specter of one former official, now in academia promoting his byline, who would profit from studying issues before attempting to write about them.
