U.S. Bombed Iran Militant Bases Inside Iraq-Report
"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. forces have attacked the Iraqi bases of Iran's main opposition group, the Mujahideen i-Khalq, The New York Times reported on Wednesday, citing unnamed U.S. government officials.
The newspaper quoted the officials saying the group, also known as the People's Mujahideen Organisation of Iran, had supported Saddam Hussein, making it a legitimate military target.
With tanks and artillery as well as armed fighters based the border with Iran, the Mujahideen has sought to overthrow Iran's Islamic government for more than a decade.
The U.S. government estimated recently that the group had "several thousand fighters," most of whom are based in Iraq."

Mujehedeen, that means fighters...a group that never had power, although they are against Islamic republic but people don't want them, because they are something worse...but I've heard some stories about its members that are like poor captives for the leaders of group & have really no way... many ones had predicted that this war in Iraq won't bring a nice future for them.
