If Politics Makes for Strange Bedfellows How About War?

Here is who the United States is cozying up in the lead up to the war in Iran:

The Mujahideen-e Khalq (MEK)

Who are they? This comes courtesy Frontline:
Self-styled "Islamic-Marxists," the MEK targeted Americans in the '70s and the State Department considers it a terrorist group. After the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the MEK was disarmed, but it remains under the protection of U.S. forces at its base north of Baghdad. Iran says the MEK is supplying intelligence to the U.S. on Iran's covert nuclear program and Iranian operations in Iraq.

That's right Islamic-Marxists. Wow.

And as the U.S. is beating the wardrums to start a war in Iran. Who is keeping time?

Here is a Q & A with a former MEK member here:

Q:... The Iranians officials told us that in the meetings in Baghdad they laid out what they said was evidence that the MEK was providing intelligence to the U.S. military. Are they?

A:The Mujahideen-e Khalq have been providing information about the Iranian regime's operations both in terms of their terrorist operation and their nuclear weapons program in open, public press conferences to the whole world. (From Frontline)

The MEK has wanted to have a Marxist style overthrow of Iran for some time. What kind of intellegence do we think we are going to get from them?
