Is Heshmat Alavi, Writer on Iran, a Fake Run By MEK Opposition?

In 2018, President Donald Trump was seeking to jettison the
landmark nuclear deal that his predecessor had signed with Iran in 2015,
and he was looking for ways to win over a skeptical press. In response, the White House passed along an article published in Forbes by a writer named Heshmat Alavi. There’s a problem, though: Heshmat Alavi appears not to exist. Alavi’s
persona is a propaganda operation run by the Iranian opposition group
Mojahedin-e-Khalq, which is known by the initials MEK, two sources told
The Intercept.
