This is the June 11, 2008 briefing titled "Forgotten: Iraqi Allies Failed by the U.S.," delivered to the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe. From the opening statement of Alcee Hastings: "And I'd like to welcome all of you to the commission briefing about the plight of Iraqi refugees, who have worked for the United States and Iraq and whose lives have placed in danger for that service, and the work of an incredible organization, The List, a project to resettle Iraqi allies, that was created to help them. While it's heartening to learn about this effort and the many Iraqis The List Project has assisted, it is at the same time disheartening and distressing that such an undertaking is even necessary. It is because of the failure of our government to do what it has as a moral obligation to do--help those who have helped us." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Kirk Johnson, Christopher Nugent, and Ibrahim.
