More Regime Change?

With "regime change" in Iran receiving renewed attention in Congress, "new exiled Iranian opposition groups backed by some of Washington's neoconservatives are springing up in the hope of seeing large doses of U.S. funding," reports the Financial Times. One such group, the Alliance for Democracy in Iran, is "strategically located in the heart of the capital's think-tank quarter," admires the American Enterprise Institute, is partners with the Hudson Institute, and enjoys support from the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth's Jerome Corsi. (In the New Yorker, Seymour Hersh writes that it's possible U.S. belligerence might be "part of a propaganda campaign aimed at pressuring Iran to give up its weapons planning.")
