In response to the massacre at Camp Ashraf, Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) today issued the following statement:
I am deeply saddened and outraged by the massacre that occurred today at Camp Ashraf. The Iraqi government has broken their promise to protect the human rights of the Iranians living at Camp Ashraf. The United States must not tolerate these crimes against humanity.
Fifty-four of my colleagues have joined me on my resolution urging the Secretary of State to immediately remove MEK from the Foreign Terrorist Organization list. The Administration needs to finally take a decisive stance on this matter and stand up for the rights of the MEK before more innocent lives are lost.
Congressman Poe serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee; Subcommittee on Terrorism. Congressman Poe sponsored H.Res.60 which urges the Secretary of State to remove the Peoples Mojahedin Organization of Iran from the FTO list.
