ADL Slams Comparison of Iranian Exile Camp to Auschwitz

Lawmakers in Washington accused US and Iraqi leaders last week of being responsible for the atrocious conditions of Iranian exiles housed near Baghdad, with one Republican comparing the facilities to Auschwitz. During discussions with other members about Camp Ashraf and Camp Liberty located near Baghdad, U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) reportedly pointed to a photograph of one of the sites and said, "Doesn't that look like Auschwitz? This looks like a concentration camp. We have sent people to a concentration camp."
