Three Americans the Iranians are Holding Captive That Obama Just Abandoned With His Odious Nuke Deal

Obama decided to abandon three Americans that the Iranians are holding captive to get his nuke deal. Obama could have made their release part of the package, but he didn’t bother. In fact, he and John Kerry never even mentioned these Americans held by Iran the whole time “negotiations” were ongoing (and by “negotiations” we mean Obama bending over backwards for the Mullahs).

Here are the three Americans[1] Obama has abandoned: Saeed Abedini, Jason Rezaian, and Amir Hekmati.

Last year, the Senate called on President Obama to “use the tools it has in pursuit of what should be a bipartisan goal: securing the release of American citizens being held as hostages by the regime in Iran.” Today, in the announcement of a nuclear deal with Iran that ignores the plight of these three hostages, the Obama administration has left behind a Christian preacher, a journalist, and a U.S. Marine.

On Tuesday, chief diplomats from the Obama Administration announced that they had struck a deal with Iran on the Islamist regime’s nuclear ambitions and the Western sanctions which have crippled the Iranian economy. Conspicuously absent from that deal, however, is the release of three high-profile Americans the Iranians are holding as political prisoners. Below, their stories, and how their actions threatened the Iranian regime so profoundly as to land them in prison indefinitely.

Meanwhile Iranian officials are STILL holding anti-American rallies even DURING those purported negotiations.
