Haystack: US explicitly provokes Iran?

"Haystack is a new program designed to provide unfiltered internet access to the people of Iran. The software package is compatible with Windows, Mac and Unix systems, and specifically targets the Iranian government’s web filtering mechanisms." So begins the blurb at the website aimed at disseminating software to allow Iranians to access twitter, facebook, Western media, and whatever else they like. The creater, from the Censorship Research Center, said, "We believe everyone, everywhere should be able to freely communicate, and we began work that would guarantee this right for the people of Iran." But is it for US NGOs to unilaterally decide and implement a right to communicate upon a target population? And why is their logo a brain in a formaldehyde tank on wheels?
