Howard Dean, a medical doctor, former governor of Vermont and former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, spoke at a rally in Paris organised by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), the Iranian opposition. The Washington Times published an article summarising his speech.
He said at the “Free Iran” rally that the Iranian Resistance deserves praise. He added that the State Department deserves mention too. Over the years he has had a lot of harsh words for the State Department with regards to “the issue of keeping their word to the people now at Liberty and before at Ashraf”.
