    He's a journalist, so he's bound to be guilty of something.

    Anyone stupid enough to go into Iran is on their own.

    The last time Americans were held for a long time by Iran there was much said about it. Now... not so much.
    The man himself is guilty of nothing, aside from entering the Middle East's equivalent of North Korea.

    It's our Government that is guilty, of signing a Treaty by Presidential fiat with a country like that.

    The charges sound trump[ed up, and the verdict rendered by an Islamic kangaroo court. This after Bobo gave the Iranians such a sweet deal for their nuclear weapons program.

    Not only is Bobo dumb, he doesn't learn, either.

  • No One Knows What Reporter Jason Rezaian Has Been Convicted of in Iran

    After spending 447 days in an Iranian prison, Jason Rezaian, the Washington Post's bureau chief in Tehran, has been convicted of something but the Iranian government has not been clear about the details of his trial, which ended two months ago, or about the judgment against him.

    Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejehi, a spokesperson for the Iranian judiciary, appeared on state TV Sunday night to confirm that Rezaian had indeed been convicted, but said, "I don't have the verdict's details." He indicated that Rezaian would have the opportunity to appeal.

    Rezaian had been charged with four separate counts including espionage, "collaborating with hostile governments," and "propaganda against the establishment" and tried before the secretive Revolutionary Court, where only his lawyer and the prosecutors were privy to the particulars of the case. Rezaian has been held in Iran's notorious Evin prison, which is famous for housing political prisoners. The charges against him could have brought a maximum sentence of 10 to 20 years, but it remains unclear precisely what charges he was convicted of.
