    Iran’s judiciary said Saturday that that it had released four Iranian-American nationals as part of a prisoner swap with the United States. The Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian was among the prisoners freed, Iranian media reported.

    :cheer2:

    Rezaian had been held in a prison in Tehran since his arrest by Iranian authorities on July 22, 2014.

    Israel is only our ally when we can help them. Give me an example of when Israel took a punch for America? They spy on us, demand military aid and undermine us when it suites their interests.

    Real allies like Britain have shed blood and spent fortunes standing next to American forces. Israel goes before Congress and undermines our governments efforts to avoid having to send our sons and daughters to die in that god forsaken area of the world.

    Or we could have bombed them, poisoned the well among the pro-U.S. Iranian youth, had them ramp up their nuclear research, and destroyed any chance to have a counter-weight to ISIS.
