Iran announced on Thursday it is preparing to implement sanctions on the American think tank, Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD) by soon releasing a list of blacklisted people related to the organization.
Continuing attempts by the regime in Iran to intimidate @FDD, an American think tank—a THINK TANK—must be condemned by all freedom-loving people around the world. The U.S. does not take these threats lightly, and will hold the regime and its “apparatuses” to account.— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) August 29, 2019
Thank you so much, Secretary Pompeo. We’re very grateful for your support and that of the entire government. It’s imperative that the regime understands the consequences of threatening Americans.— Mark Dubowitz (@mdubowitz) August 29, 2019
The outlaw regime in Iran issued a threat today against @FDD, an American think tank, and its CEO. The U.S. takes the regime’s threats seriously. We intend to hold Iran responsible for directly or indirectly compromising the safety of any American.— Morgan Ortagus (@statedeptspox) August 25, 2019
