Americans held in Iran not part of nuke deal
Published July 14, 2015
The United States may have just lost its best leverage to secure the release of four citizens held in Iran.
Monday’s nuclear agreement with Iran includes no provisions for the release of three Americans known to be detained in Iran and a fourth thought to be held captive by the Islamic Republic.
“What happened today makes a bad deal even worse,” said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice. “We will now focus our attention on convincing Congress to reject this deal.”
