Saddam's Private Army: How Rajavi Changed Iran's Mojahedin from Armed Revolutionaries to an Armed Cult
Once welcomed by the West for his aim of overthrowing the mullahs' regime in Iran the Mojahedin leader Massoud Rajavi's single minded quest for power led him to act as a mercenary for Saddam Hussein and to pervert the powerful and popular resistance movement into an armed cult. This up-to-date account and analysis of the degeneration of the Mojahedin into Saddam's Private Army is told by a Western woman who had for over twenty years unique access to their secret inner world.
