BACKGROUND:  DoD is offering FPC members an opportunity to tour the Iranian Materiel Display at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, Washington, D.C., which exhibits Iranian weapons recovered across the Middle East as proof of Tehran’s duplicitous ambitions.  As shown below, the IMD contains materiel from grenades to short-range ballistic missiles that are associated with Iranian proliferation into Yemen, Afghanistan and Bahrain.
