Former Iranian Presidential Candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi Helped Kill 220 U.S. Marines in 1983!

Why is the mainstream media supporting Mir-Hossein Mousavi when he helped engineer the deaths of 220 Marines in 1983? Former CIA field officer Bob Baer says that Mousavi dealt directly with Imad Mughniyah who was "the man largely held responsible for both attacks." No matter what Mousavi may have done to rehabilitate himself since 1983, there is no way the U.S. should be dealing with him under any circumstances! Have any media outlets reported on this matter?
He may yet turn out to be the avatar of Iranian democracy, but three decades ago Mir-Hossein Mousavi was waging a terrorist war on the United States that included bloody attacks on the U.S. embassy and Marine Corps barracks in Beirut.

Mousavi, prime minister for most of the 1980s, personally selected his point man for the Beirut terror campaign, Ali Akbar Mohtashemi-pur, and dispatched him to Damascus as Iran's ambassador, according to former CIA and military officials.

The ambassador in turn hosted several meetings of the cell that would carry out the Beirut attacks, which were overheard by the National Security Agency.
