INU - McCarthyism, a term that first came into use in 1950, describes the practice of making serious accusations without the existence of substantiating evidence. It is a type of character assassination that has been used a lot throughout history.
The Iranian opposition, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK), has been on the receiving-end of such practices for decades. Recently, it has been slandered by Arron Merat, a journalist that wrote a misinformed article in the Guardian that distorts the truth, and Paul R. Pillar who published an article for the National Interest. Both were bold attempts to harm the legitimacy of the PMOI / MEK.
