The U.S. government has declared on many occasions that the religious, terrorist dictatorship ruling Iran is the biggest sponsor of international terrorism. The latest U.S. State Department's annual report on terrorism in April 1998 emphasized that "the Iranian government is the most active state sponsor of terrorism" in the world.
Sandy Berger, the National Security Adviser to the U.S. President, said: "We have not ruled out that others share responsibility, however, and we are looking into every possibility."
It is high time, therefore, to unveil the role and responsibility of the mullahs' regime in the bomb attacks in Dhahran, Buenos Aires, Dar es Salaam and Nairobi. The fight against the clerical regime's unbridled terrorism must not be overshadowed by the transparent division of roles among the ruling factions, the "bad cop, good cop" game in Iran, and the investment in the mullahs' president, Mohammad Khatami.
The theocratic dictatorship and all the factions that constitute it depend on the export of fundamentalism and terrorism to remain in power. Treating the religious, terrorist dictatorship ruling Iran as "separate factions" and failure to deal with this regime as a whole, only hearten the mullahs to perpetrate suppression at home and continue to export terrorism abroad. This policy has been continuing since the Irangate scandal and the search for illusory "moderates" within the mullahs' regime and resulted in the cover-up of many crimes committed by the mullahs.
