President Barack Obama failed to secure the release of an Iranian-American Christian pastor as a condition of an Iranian nuclear deal.
Saeed Abedini, 33, was imprisoned in his native Iran in September 2012 for "undermining national security" by working to establish home-based Christian churches in Iran from 2000 to 2005.
I guess that's a capital offense in some interpretations of Islam and clearly not important enough human rights violation for Obama to raise a stink. I guess we shouldn't expect much more than that from anti-religon extreme left that's part of Obama's base.
Abedini's wife, Naghmeh, said from her Idaho home that she felt betrayed by Obama:
My kids are crying every day. They are saying, ‘Please keep daddy alive,' and my government let the one, crucial opportunity for bringing my husband home pass by. I feel betrayed.
Abedini is an American citizen and whatever his beliefs, someone should be fighting for him with the same passion and energy that this countryexpended to free the American hostages that were being held by the Muslim fanatics in Iran. Why hasn't Abedini's plight received more attention?
