Wild claims from Alireza Jafarzadeh - Who is paying him?

Yahoo! News - Experts to Probe Iran's Role in Iraq:

There are professional agitators who stir up trouble against the Islamic Republic of Iran because they want groups like the CIA to give them money. It is vermin like these who claimed Iraq had WMD. They gave dire warnings and the CIA shelled out money. Take Alireza Jafarzadeh for instance. He is called a Iranian resistance leader. He offers no real proof for any of his wild claims but he has a willing audience in our Government. They feed the agitators to tell their stories and their fears build, so they feed the agitators more money and the reports get worse. Why is there no proof to support Alireza Jafarzadeh wild claims? As a US taxpayer I would like to know what US tax dollars have gone to this rumor merchant.

Keep in mind National review wrote, “National Council of Resistance of Iran an organization the State Department classifies as a front group for the People's Mujahedin of Iran, a terrorist group supported by Saddam Hussein.” JBOC

"Perhaps the most extreme views on whether Iran is meddling come from Iranian resistance leaders such as Alireza Jafarzadeh, who ran the Washington office of Iran's exiled opposition National Council of Resistance until the State Department closed it down last year for ties to anti-Iranian terrorists.
Based on intelligence from inside Iran, Jafarzadeh contends Iran is pouring tens of millions of dollars into Iraq each month to inspire unrest, dispatching thousands of clerics to organize local insurgencies and sending resistance fighters.

Politically, Jafarzadeh, now president of Washington-based Strategic Policy Consulting, believes Iran is waiting out the U.S.-led occupation for a chance to erect an Islamic republic next door. "
