(WASHINGTON TIMES) NEW YORK — The Obama administration has taken a group of Iranian dissidents off the State Department’s list of foreign terrorist organizations, culminating a long-running public relations campaign by the dissidents and their supporters.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s decision to remove the Mujahideen-e-Khalq (MeK) from the list will be published Wednesday in the Federal Register. The group also is known as the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran.

After an exhaustive review ordered by a federal court, U.S. officials found no evidence of the group’s involvement in terrorist activity.
