Bachmann Warns Against "Radical Elements All Across the Middle East Region" While Supporting Terror Cult MEK

LA Times reports on Bachmann speech at a GOP convention in Los Angeles:

It was on matters of foreign policy that Bachmann seemed to take her stump message further, offering a critical view of the so-called “Arab Spring” and voicing sympathy for Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak. “We saw President Mubarak fall while President Obama sat on his hands,” Bachmann said. “And we’ve also seen now the rise of radical elements all across the Middle East region.”

As we have reported months ago, Bachmann supports The People's Mujahideen Organisation of Iran (PMOI, also known as the MEK) and so does Bradlee Dean's lawyer Larry Klayman.


"Pro-Marriage" Bachmann Supports Leftist, Terrorist Organization That Promoted "Compulsory Divorce"

Last week, Michele Bachmann appeared at a press conference at a Freedom Watch symposium titled "National security, freedom, and Iran—is it time for U.S. and Western intervention?" Bachmann voiced her support for The People's Mujahideen Organisation of Iran (PMOI, also known as the MEK), asking that they be removed from the U.S. State Department list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations.

Who is the People's Mujahideen Organization of Iran?


-- The U.S. State Department has said the PMOI assassinated at least six U.S. citizens as part of the struggle to overthrow the Shah, backed the takeover of the U.S. embassy in Tehran and opposed freeing U.S. hostages. The U.S. government designated the PMOI a "terrorist" organisation in 1997.

-- In the 1980s, the group's leaders fled to France and also collaborated with Iraq during the 1980-88 war with Iran.

-- In April 1992, the PMOI carried out attacks on 13 Iranian embassies around the world, causing significant damage.

Human Rights Watch had a report a while back on the Mojahedin Khalq (MEK, People's Mujahideen Organisation of Iran). HRW says the People's Mujahideen Organization of Iran required its members to divorce their spouses:

The leadership asked the members to divorce themselves from all physical and emotional attachments in order to enhance their “capacity for struggle.” In case of married couples, this phase of the “ideological revolution” required them to renounce their emotional ties to their spouses through divorce.

When a reporter asked Bachmann about the lack of trust Iranian dissidents have for the People's Mujahideen Organization of Iran, Bachmann replied with this money quote:

"Not every vehicle is a perfect vehicle and we don't want to defeat the good because we are in search of the perfect."

Oh, the irony...

In the following two videos, Bachmann begins at 8:30, calls for supporting the The People's Mujahideen Organization of Iran, asking that they be removed from the U.S. list of terrorist organizations. Bachmann is followed by Alan Keyes who says the U.S should declare war on muslim "imperialism":
