Commander Hussein Afsheen of PJAK, the Party for a Free Life in Kurdistan, a member group of the PKK, the Kurdistan Workers Party, sits in front of a picture of Abdullah Ocalan, the founder of PKK in the PJAK training camp in the Qendil mountain range, northern Iraq. Recruits are training to fight Iran, one of the four countries that rule the fractured Kurdish people. And although they belong to an organization officially outlawed as terrorist by Washington, they appear to be operating unhindered from Iraqi territory controlled by U.S. forces.
