    from the article:

    "The current MEK leadership maintains close ties with several prominent American politicians, including Donald Trump’s former national security adviser John Bolton and the president’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, both of whom have been paidspeakers at MEK events."

    "Since then, the group has cultivated an impressive roster of American supporters in addition to Bolton and Giuliani, including Democrats like former presidential candidate Howard Dean and Sen. Bob Menendez. Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, now one of President Donald Trump’s lawyers, allegedly began working for the MEK as far back as 2017, but only registered as a lobbyist for the MEK this fall. (Giuliani reportedly took part in Mukasey’s initial meeting with the group.)"

    Amazing how creating an organization name such as "National Council of Resistance of Iran" can cover up the true nature of a group. Just like all of Scientology's front groups. They play to these politicians weaknesses and their lack of research or their willful ignorance. "Hey, if this group is against the government of Iran, then they must be ok." Or in the case of Scientology , a front group with the name (just one example of many) "Citizens Commission on Human Rights - what could be wrong with that?

    "American and United Nations diplomats began searching for a safer country to house the group. After intensive lobbying by a bipartisan group of lawmakers, the American government also removed them from a list of terrorist organizations in 2012."

    "A year later, they were finally welcomed by Albania. The Albanian government hoped its hospitality would curry favor with Washington, according to the foreign minister between 2013 and 2019, Ditmir Bushati."

    The group purchased several fields in a valley 15 miles west of Tirana, the capital, and built a camp there.

    When I visited, the base seemed oddly empty. The group claims it houses about 2,500 members. But across the two days, we saw no more than 200.

    The others seemed to have been sequestered away — or to have left the group altogether.

    Dozens of former members now live independently in Albania. I met 10 of them, who each described being brainwashed into a life of celibacy.

    Inside the group, they said romantic relationships and sexual thoughts were banned, contact with family highly restricted, and friendships discouraged.
