Former Pennsylvania Gov. Edward G. Rendell suggested that U.S. Marines be left in Iraq to ensure the safety of Camp Ashraf residents.

All U.S. combat troops are scheduled to leave Iraq by the end of this month.

Mr. Freeh warned of an imminent “genocide” at Camp Ashraf.

MEK leader Maryam Rajavi addressed the rally via teleconference from France. She said the al-Maliki government had turned Iraq into the “backyard of the Iranian regime” and accused the Obama administration of obstructing a European Parliament plan to relocate the camp’s residents.

“The people of Iran and the United States will judge you on the basis of what you did when you could stop a great carnage,” she said.

“One day, you will severely criticize yourselves for the events unfolding these days and for wasting time,” she added.
