This study has been performed to study reasons for the US support increase to People’s Mujahedin Organization against Iran, which has currently entered its new step after 2003 changes and Iraq occupation by the US. This organization, which has been established as one of the deviated processes in Iranian political atmosphere in early 1960s, was known as group of Munafiqs (hypocrites) because of their eclectic intellectual and political fundamentals as well as their activities and policy. After 2003, with the fall of Saddam (the most important supporter of the organization), the increasing influence of Islamic Republic of Iran in Iraq and inclusion of the organization in the list of terrorist groups by the US and the UE, many experts predicted the collapse of the organization as soon as possible. However, as agents of the United States in the light of the "constructive chaos" strategy to contain Islamic Republic of Iran, members of the terrorist group could maintain part of its collapsed structure by gaining the political, security, financial and military support of the US. Based on the main hypothesis of this research, the US uses this terrorist organization in line with the theory of constructive chaos and management of terrorist groups in order to control Islamic Republic of Iran and change its regime.
