The secret back channel of negotiations between Iran and the United States, which led to this month’s interim deal in Geneva on Iran’s rogue nuclear program, has also seen a series of prisoner releases by both sides, which have played a central role in bridging the distance between the two nations, the Times of Israel has been told.

In the most dramatic of those releases, the US in April released a top Iranian scientist, Mojtaba Atarodi, who had been arrested in 2011 for attempting to acquire equipment that could be used for Iran’s military-nuclear programs.

But the Christian Pastor hasn't been released by Iran.

I long for the days of even Jimmy Carter's foreign policy.

Irani scientists who tried to acquire equipment for the nuke development for Iran are freed, while American minister Saeed Abedini remains imprisoned in Iran.

“In the meantime, Americans Robert Levinson, Amir Hekmati, and Saeed Abedini are currently imprisoned in Iran.”

What does this tell you — who is calling the shots?!

What kind of fugging deal is this?

We give them back prisoners and that idiot Kerry never even mentioned getting our hostages back.
Who is that a-hole working for?
never Mind answering that. The man is a traitor and has sold us out again.

This is simply unffrigging believable. No one could be that stupid
I take that back too. Our president and SOS ARE that stupid.

Geez this country is going to hell in a hand basket with these two jag-offs leading the way.

bed with the Iranians. Literally.

Not to mention FBI Agent Robert Levinson who has been missing for 6 years.

It tells me that the U.S. is the one begging for an agreement, any agreement just so they can say that their foreign policy and diplomacy is working.

Iran is playing along just to see how much they can get out of this trick president of ours.

Sad commentary, but accurate. Carter would have at least tried to get the pastor out. And Carter never released their frozen assets either.

Nuclear, shmooklear. A few thermonuclear detonations never hurt anyone. But preaching Christianity to Muslims, that’s unforgivable.

I predicted this would happen in an earlier thread a few days ago.

You know your an amateur when Iran beats the President at negotiating.

What other developments to come? Maybe we’ll turn over our research to them, if they promise to play nice until after the ‘16 elections?

Obama/Kerry want a deal with Iran so bad - any deal - that they will agree to anything at all, just so they can say they got a deal.

RE: I long for the days of even Jimmy Carter’s foreign policy.

Why doesn’t he do one of his famed personal diplomatic “visitations” to the enemy to facilitate this release?
