The Clinton-Obama Nuclear Deal Failed To Help Americans Held Captive In Iran

- October 13, 2015

The Clinton-Obama Nuclear Deal "Makes No Mention Of Americans Who Have Been Held In Iran For Years." "Tuesday's historic deal with Iran, which calls for Tehran to curb its nuclear program in exchange for the West's easing up on harsh economic sanctions, has received praise worldwide. But the agreement makes no mention of Americans who have been held in Iran for years." (Elizabeth Chuck, "Who Are The Four Americans Still Being Held In Iran?" NBC News, 7/14/15)

  • The Huffington Post Headline: "Iran Nuclear Deal Is No Triumph For 4 Captive Americans" (Akbar Shahid Ahmed, "Iran Nuclear Deal Is No Triumph For 4 Captive Americans," The Huffington Post, 7/14/15)
  • The Deal "Offers No Certainty About The Future Of Four American Prisoners Who Remain Trapped In Iran, Unable To Return To Their Families And Still Subject To Opaque Judicial Processes Few Fully Understand." "Tuesday's announcement of a deal between Iran, the U.S. and five other world powers restricting the controversial Iranian nuclear program has drastically cut the risks of future U.S. conflict in the Middle East, secured a legacy achievement for President Barack Obama and shown that diplomacy can bear fruit even on issues once thought intractable. But it offers no certainty about the future of four American prisoners who remain trapped in Iran, unable to return to their families and still subject to opaque judicial processes few fully understand." (Akbar Shahid Ahmed, "Iran Nuclear Deal Is No Triumph For 4 Captive Americans," The Huffington Post, 7/14/15)

Just Yesterday, Washington Post Correspondent, Jason Rezaian, Was Convicted On Espionage Charges After Being Held More Than 14 Months In Iran. "Washington Post correspondent Jason Rezaian, imprisoned in Tehran for more than 14 months, has been convicted following an espionage trial that ended in August, Iranian media reported Monday. The verdict - belated and opaque - was strongly condemned by the journalist's family and colleagues, as well as the U.S. government." (Carol Morello and William Branigin, "Iranian Media Says Post Correspondent Jason Rezaian Convicted," The Washington Post , 10/12/15)
