"I have been very deeply touched by the struggles in support of camps Ashraf and Liberty and by the Iranian people against this horrible, anti-human regime that now occupies Iran. Your presence and the people of camps Ashraf and Liberty are a bother to the mullahs because your existence is a threat to that regime," underscored Rep. Rohrabacher. The California Democrat, Rep. Chu added, "We must relocate the residents of Camp Liberty outside Iraq or back to Camp Ashraf where they can finally be safe… Residents deserve helmets and protection vests, protection from rockets and bullets, like the T-Wall that were mysteriously removed."
Referring to Liberty residents' perilous situation, Attorney General Michael Mukasey warned, "The residents of Camp Liberty are in a desperate. Needed protective T-walls have been removed. They live in flimsy shelters and already have been the target of three attacks by people acting with the cooperation of the Maliki government. If any further harm befalls Liberty residents, that blood will be on the hands of those fail to act."
Undersecretary Glassman added, "I want reiterate Rouhani's background as Khamenei's representative on the Supreme and National Security Council that is hardly moderate. Four days ago he reiterated support for the nuclear program. He's bragged about deceiving the west so that nuclear development can proceed."
In a video message, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), Terrorism, Non-proliferation and Trade Subcommittee Ranking Member, said, "[Rouhani] has appointed to his Cabinet a number of former officials with horrendous human rights record. To think that [ Mostafa] Pourmohammadi would become justice minister, the word justice is a contradiction to his name."Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA), a senior member of the Armed Services Committee, and Tom McClintock (R-CA) also sent written messages, rejecting that Rouhani was moderate and applauding the efforts of Iranian Americans.
