It’s a pleasure and a privilege to be here with you tonight celebrating with you the obvious pride you see in what you’ve accomplished here in the last 20 months. Congratulations on what you’ve done.

So, as has been said many times already today, it’s time. Change must come to Iran. Many of us in the U.S. military have on-the-ground, firsthand experience with Iran, as all these gentlemen know from their time in Iraq. The Iran regime is a challenge not only for the Iranian people, it’s a challenge for the international community. And change must come to Iran.

Let me just close with a couple of remarks directed at the residents of Camp Ashraf 3, the Ashrafis. What you have built here is a tribute to your courage. It’s a tribute to your determination. And it’s a tribute to your 168 comrades who lost their lives during your journey here. It’s through your grit and your determination you have cemented — cemented both literally and figuratively — Ashraf 3 as the global center for democratic resistance to the Iranian regime. And because of you and what you’ve done, change will come to Iran.
