Iran finds US-backed MKO fingermarks in riots

According to the security officials, the arrested members had confessed that they were extensively trained in Iraq's camp Ashraf to create post-election mayhem in the country.

They had also revealed that they have been given directions by the MKO command post in Britain.

Earlier on Saturday, MKO leader Maryam Rajavi had supported the recent wave of street violence in Iran during a Saturday address to supporters in Paris.

I figured that something was fishy about the "demonstrations".

This Moussavi dude doesn't take losing elections very lightly either.

Why these folks would want to over throw their "Ayatollah" is totally beyond me. No news source has given a valid reason for that. But after Obama chimed in with his "will of the people" nonsense, then something just clearly didn't feel right.. because America never follows the "will of the people"

Not buying it!

The vanguard of these protests are college students and women. They have plenty of reasons to overthrow their ayatollah!

And of course state tv is going to blame this on the US.

No wonder there are those in the world that want to kill us. It's our own damn governments that are putting us in danger! Gee, thanks Uncle Sham, thanks Obama. I don't know who is worst now, the terrorists, or the ones that created a reason for terrorists. We should sue the pants off our government for putting us all in this kind of danger.

As if the US and UK forced people into the streets to burn stuff. Give me a break. This only shows how delusional these people are. I mean they pretty much shut down all forms of communications so how exactly did the US and UK ferment this? What they really need to do is grow up and look at themselves and stop blaming everybody else for their own issues.

It seems that the powers that be in Iran have forgotten their own history. If you push people too hard they will inevitably push back. I think some there feel as if they have been backed into a corner with their backs to a wall. You know what they say about a cornered animal. You can control the some of the people some of the time but not all the people all of the time.

we could take this in many directions...

I love te USA and its the best!!!!

How coincidental that this is released right after they declare "death to Britain, Israel, and the US".

Look at what's going on in Iran -- do you really think they have time to be running background checks right now? C'mon.

This was designed to remind the people of Iran that they are united by their desire to destroy the west and that the "political mayhem" isn't real -- it was orchestrated.

So -- all of the those people we saw being arrested and attacked were MKO officials and NOT Iranian citizens...oh OK. We can all relax now....

Ahmadinejad tells US, UK to stop 'interfering'

Amid mounting international criticism of the violent aftermath of the June 12 election, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad lashed out at the US and the UK for their "interfering stances”. Britain immediately rejected the accusations.

For those who think that this person is ranting or creating BS claims, perhaps you should take a look at this link and read how the BBC and Times are involved in an internet propaganda scandal and you all thought he was crying wolf. All credit for the link bellow belongs to ats member "TheTilde" for pointing out the disgusting and crude usage of propaganda within th internet and to think these news agency's are voices of their represented country's as official media sources.

BBC Caught In Mass Public Deception With Iran Propaganda

The BBC has again been caught engaging in mass public deception by using photographs of pro-Ahmadinejad rallies in Iran and claiming they represent anti-government protests in favor of Hossein Mousavi.

An image used by the L.A. Times on the front page of its website Tuesday showed Iranian President Ahmadinejad waving to a crowd of supporters at a public event.

In a story covering the election protests yesterday, the BBC News website used a closer shot of the same scene, but with Ahmadinejad cut out of the frame. The caption under the photograph read, 'Supporters of Mir Hossein Mousavi again defied a ban on protests'.

The BBC photograph is clearly a similar shot of the same pro-Ahmadinejad rally featured in the L.A. Times image, yet the caption erroneously claims it represents anti-Ahmadinejad protesters.

These young students have just been tortured, beaten and watched people die.
They are willing to say anything and everything the government wants them to, if it means them or their family walk out of the interior of ministry alive.

Obama and Israel are remining silent on the Issue, why? because they WANT ahmadinejad in power.
Ahmadinejad means potential conflict and a war.

It makes no sense for the US to sabotage their middle eastern affairs by backing a more modern, open president.

The CIA and Mossad are in Iran involved in this rally yes, but they are merely looking at the resistance, to make contacts and to observe Iranian Authority actions in times of strife.

I do not believe this tripe.
These people ARENT protesting for Mosavi, they are protesting AGAINST THE ISLAMIC REGIME!

Look, I don't really see why the La Times and BBC would need to mislead people with those pictures...

The real photos and videos on the internet speak for themselves.

That being said, Ahmadinejad's time in office has been defined by his combative stance towards 'the west'. He's been pretty popular because of it, and this rhetoric he's using now is to get his base riled up.

The fact that presstv is STATE OWNED MEDIA should tell us, the discerning public, that it can't really be a trusted source during such a volatile time.

Certainly, both sides are engaging in a propaganda war, but who is more credible at this point? The holocaust denying dictator and ayatollahs or the educated youth and women who are PUTTING THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE for freer lives?

At this point I back the protesters even if Ahmadinejad did win fair and square, which i doubt.

I'm not buying that media report. Anytime something happens different in an autocratic country, such as dissent; immediately the leaders point the finger at the western powers (UK and US). Again, as I stated earlier; this is a last ditch efforts by the rats to hold on to their piece of the cheese (power). Don't get me wrong, the US and UK have been instigators in the past; but this time I think they are on the sidelines and this is truly the Iranians struggle.

I faith that the people will send the theocracy packing, and who knows what will fill the void; but these people are no longer fit to be on the seat of power. We just have to sit back and let the cards fall where they may and hopefully it is better for the Iranians than what they have now.

The BBC reported this election fair right at the start and said that it looked like Ahmadinejad had won it going by the polls their own reporters had done in the country.

This has all the tell tell signs of being another coup aimed at other throwing the religious clerics who are realy in power.The main oposition leader was never intended to win,as if he had nothing would change with the rulling class system
He was ment to lose,as he did and then kick up a fuss about rigged elections and get all those angry students out on the street for the worlds cameras

now every tom,dick and sally here are sprouting parrot fashion all the twitter rubbish.

The media are doing the same thing they did against russia recently in the georgian conflict-they should repeat what they said at the start and once again tell the world that the polls they did all over the country pointed at Ahmadinejad being the winner

There is a large part of the population who didnt vote for him,and they have good rights not too-but democratic elections showed them to be smaller in numbers.Jeez i hate Labour,I think there not an English party like all my friends but we didnt go out in high numbers through the streets torching cars and throwing rocks at goverment widows(and if we had we would have been beaten up by the police and thrown in jail!)

I think a lot here realy support the students as they hate Islam as a religion,its got nothing to do with them politicaly but just a desire to see islam being squashed

The Bomb,Bomb,Bomb Iran brigade couldnt give a toss about persians

Iran's state spin, trying to blame everyone but the real criminals, themselves.

NO, it's not US or England or anyone else.

It is Iran's dictator and his religious idiots who do wrong and now must deal with it.

Being cowardly, they try to rally support by saying it is everyones else's fault, except the ones who are really at fault, them!

Why all the melodrama? This is a good thing. The people of Iran are finally waking up. This is something that Americans should watch and take note of. Get out your pads and pencils and take note of what to do and what not to do. Americans need to be ready when it is our turn to take to the streets to depose the evil government.

May God give these good people strength to oppose evil and win out.

How about letting the rest of us in on it. I have been searching for the acronym for several hours now and cannot find it on the web.

I saw the puppet spewing so called "facts" on the propaganda mill

The theocratic state is under attack from a majority reformist population, many Iranian students are very liberal and secular - all find the regime repressive towards contemporary values.

That was easy:

The People's Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI, also MEK, MKO) (Persian: سازمان مجاهدين خلق ايران sāzmān-e mojāhedin-e khalq-e irān) is a militant Islamic socialist organization that advocates the overthrow of the Islamic Republic government of Iran.
