See, this is why you don’t make deals with radical muslim countries.
John Kerry, our secretary of state, had reached out to Iran about freeing a U.S. Marine prisoner that has been behind bars for 4 years. 4 years! Kerry apparently thought asking was the way to go instead of rescuing him.
When asked to release the captive marine, Iran’s top judge fired back:
Kerry, who negotiated on behalf of the U.S. in the controversial, recent nuclear talks, issued the plea on behalf of Amir Hekmati, a former Marine held on espionage charges Kerry has labeled as “false.” He is one of three and possibly four Americans held by Iran, but Kerry was unable to making springing them part of the deal which lifted international sanctions against Iran in return for its pledge to not pursue nuclear weapons in the near future.
‘The judiciary does not need American officials to write prescriptions for it,’ Iranian judicial chief Ayatollah Sadegh Larijani told Iranian media on Tuesday. ‘Our advice to them is not to hype (such matters) up uselessly.’
Kerry said Hekmati has suffered abuse while being held on the bogus charges. The Iranian-American, whose family lives in Michigan, was in the nation to visit his grandparents in August, 2011, when he was arrested for allegedly spying on behalf of the CIA.
Can we not go get him please!? Iran will never release him, nor will they ever bring him to trial. This is a country that beheads people. I’ll tell you one thing, Trump wouldn’t sit idly by while American lives rot away in foreign prisons. Oh wait, he already made that effort. Trump 2016!
