American Special Forces provided training during the George W. Bush administration to a terrorist group bent on the overthrow of the Iranian government, according to the New Yorker.

According to a story by investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, the Joint Special Operations Command spent time during Bush's second term in office training members of the Mujahideen-e-Khalq (MEK), a dissident Iranian opposition group that was first listed as a foreign terrorist organization by the State Department in 1997.

Beginning in 2005, MEK members were brought to a remote location in the Nevada desert where they were taught cryptography, "small-unit tactics, and weaponry," according to the story. The training was discontinued before Bush left office.
