TPI| Chuck Norris, in addition to being a famous actor, is a patriot and proud defender of American values. That’s why he penned a powerful op-ed, which focuses a giant spotlight on Obama’s dealing with the Iranian regime about nuclear arms.
As Chuck notes, there is a story which is actually WORSE than his pathetic compromising with Iran in secret negotiations. What’s the most important RIGHT NOW is Iran refusing to release American citizens from captivity. And our Commander in Chief is allowing them to be abused in filthy Iranian prisons. This is a disgrace!
I would bet most Americans don’t even know that U.S. citizens are being unjustly imprisoned in Iran based upon faulty grounds and charges. And to boot, one is a pastor, one is a journalist and the other a U.S. Marine!
Talk-show host and Marine veteran Montel Williams has recently fanned the flames for the release of Amir Hekmati, an Iranian-American former Marine jailed in Tehran.
Montel explained to Greta Van Susteren: “He had to get a passport to fly in Iran to see his dying grandmother. Two months after on the ground, they arrest him and charge him. He is not an Iranian. He is a United States citizen. But the Iranian government is treating him as if he is Iranian just because he has Iranian blood. So he had to go through this process of denouncing and renouncing his Iranian citizenship to see if he can get another government like Pakistan or somebody to step in to see if they can help him, which I think is really ridiculous.”
I would ante-up Montel’s mission also to include the release of pastor Saeed Abedini, who, in 2013, was sentenced to eight years in prison by an Iranian court for starting house churches in the 2000s, an era in which they weren’t even regarded as a threat to Iran’s security. Abedini’s wife explained her frustrations before Congress in 2013 when the White House first sat down with Iranian diplomats: “My husband is suffering because he is a Christian. He’s suffering because he’s an American. … Yet his own government did not fight for him when his captors were across the table.”

Sadly, only Montel Williams and Chuck Norris are sounding the alarm on how Americans are being treated in Iran. It is a scandal that the mainstream media hasn’t exposed this story to a wider audience.
Iran is actively arming groups which are hostile to America, while keeping Americans hostage. They are showing the world that America doesn’t take sanctions seriously, as the current President doesn’t have the courage to stand up against America’s enemies.
