ABSTRACT
This article focuses on battle between the U.S. and Iran. In July the U.S. State Department and the Pentagon both announced that they considered a group of 3,800 Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MKO) Marxist Iranian rebels interned in Iraq as" protected persons" under the Geneva Convention, despite having previously labelled the group of anti-Iranian fighters" terrorists". Reports that low-level talks between Iranian go-betweens and State department officials on the possibly of Iran exchanging senior Al Qaeda figures in its custody for the 3,800" Peoples Holy Warriors" guerillas held by the U.S. in Iraq have been making the rounds in Washington for over a year.
