the total barf of seeing a US citizen groveling before the Mullahs while her friends are still in captivity

When you meet the unbelievers in jihad [holy war], chop off their heads. And when you have brought them low, bind your prisoners rigorously. Then set them free or take ransom from them until the war is ended.—(Koran, 47:4)

“humbled and grateful” is just another way of saying “I’ll speak kindly of you so you’ll free my 2 friends”. We won’t hear of any mistreatment or of the kangaroo court until her companions are on safer soil.

The Iran government has ventured into state sponsored kidnapping. In earlier times, this action may been cause for swift retaliation. In these times, this action is cause for ransoms and praise for the dear leader. Disgusting.

$500K = ransom.

We were supposed to have settled this in the early 1800’s (except, perhaps, for T. Jefferson’s underhandedness)

She should be grateful to the people who raised the money to pay Iran’s extortion, but she should not be grateful to the little crap-weasel that had his people hold her hostage for over a year.

If somebody came to my house and held me at gunpoint while somebody else wearing steel-toed boots kicked me between the legs once a day while I was powerless to do anything about it, I sure as heck wouldn’t be grateful to him for finally stopping.

Let's see how long she keeps the headscarf on when she gets home.

Nancy Pelosi could probably use a new one.

Too bad her half million dollar bail will be used to further the evil dwarf’s nuclear attack on Israel. Whatever happened to our rule that we don’t pay ransom to terrorists?

Use your noodle. The Iranians still hold her two companions, one of whom is her fiance. She will say nothing publically to make life tougher for them while still in captivity, especially as one is her fiance. I’m sure she will be thoroughly briefed by our gov’t agents as to what happened to her, but none of it will be made public as long as the other to men are still being held by Iran.

She has to say whatever they tell her to because she knows her comments affect the possibility of geting the other 2 out. What do you expect her to do, ruin the chances of her friends getting out? That’s exactly why they released only one of them, so they could get the comments they wanted.

That's always a risk, but I'm thinking it's just being polite so not to put her two friends at any greater risk.
