Louis Freeh: "… Less than 48 hours ago, 18 years ago, the Iranian government, acting through the IRGC, blew up Khobar Towers in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, killing twenty US airmen, wounding 372, and killing and wounding many other nationals. This is a message for our negotiators in Vienna who are sitting across the table from the representatives of the IRGC. I’m no longer in my government position. My colleague is no longer in his government position. But I would ask our representatives in Vienna to keep a copy on the table before them of a criminal indictment called US vs. al-Mushagol, criminal number 01228A, docket number assigned to the District of Columbia. Fifteen defendants, members of Hezbollah al-Hajaz and the Iranian government, which is mentioned in that indictment, are fugitives from the United States for the murder of those individuals. So, perhaps as a condition of our negotiation, we could request the extradition of those fifteen defendants to stand trial for murder.
We are here today to be witnesses against acquiescence. The word is acquiescence. It was called by one of my colleagues. We are surrounded by heroes today. The martyrs here on board are MEK members. I just attended our 70th anniversary of our D-Day Memorial in Omaha Beach. And whether it was Omaha Beach on June 6th, whether it was the Mourne in 1914 a hundred years ago, whether it was all the battles where our allies for liberty, tolerance and decency fought together now, and you cannot convince me, and nobody in our Department of State or government will convince me that current circumstances will require the United States of America to be an ally of the mullah terrorist regime in Iran.
There is a letter that I have here today and it’s dated quite appropriately June 7th, 2014, to the President of the United States. It’s signed by 38 of the most prominent American politicians, military leaders, statespersons, academics, and I want to read a very small portion to you. It says, “For three years approximately 3,000 men and women of the exiled Iranian dissident organization have been confined in very or steer and perilous conditions at Camp Liberty. The truth is that these residents of Camp Liberty have fulfilled assurance and received by the United States government its promises and the United States has failed to support to fulfill every assurance it has extended to these residents. The reality is that these opponents of the regime have continuously sought to assist and to cooperate with the United States.”
And the letter concludes, “We call upon you Mr. President, to adjust the policy that is failing to produce the intended results and instead continues to invite lethal attacks against unarmed civilians we pledged to protect, monitor and relocate expeditiously. US credibility and honor are diminished with every casualty incurred by these residents.”
Madam Rajavi, you talked about the roadmap to freedom. We should keep in mind the roadmap to freedom and safety for our brothers and sisters in Camp Ashraf. This is not very complicated. This does not require diplomacy, it does not require negotiations in Vienna, it requires according to my map about 25 US Air Force planes to remove those residents immediately. And how fitting, ladies and gentlemen, that the US Air Force, 19 of whose members were murdered by the Iranian regime, bring now the Iranian Resistance out of harm’s way."
