Congressman Ted Poe: Iraqis and their Iranian buddies psychologically torture the residents of Ashraf


CONGRESSIONAL RECORD—Extensions of Remarks

EXTENSIONS OFREMARKS

Friday, January 7, 2011

“Mr. Speaker,
……
We have seen enough of Iraqi authorities doing favors for its neighbor to the East. At Camp Ashraf, a camp in the middle of the Iraqi desert full of freedom fighters from Iran, Iraqis and their Iranian buddies psychologically torture the residents. They put up dozens of loudspeakers surrounding the camp and shout at residents around the clock, telling them to go home to their motherland and stop being traitors.

We must send a clear message to Iraq: as long as it is ruled by the tiny tyrant and his henchmen, Iran is not a friend you can trust. If you side with them, then you side with oppression and tyranny. So stop imprisoning political refugees and stand up for the freedom that so many of our countrymen and yours have given their lives for.
 
And that’s just the way it is.”

TED POE
Member of Congress
