Iran Charges American Journalist With Espionage

In an article I wrote two weeks ago titled "Where Is Iran's Common Humanity?" I mentioned the American journalist Roxana Saberi had been arrested in Iran on January 31st and held in the notorious Evin Prison without charge.

Well, the Iranians have now charged Saberi with espionage.

Will President Obama speak out on behalf of Roxana Saberi?

Or is Roxana Saberi expendable in Obama's reckless and relentless pursuit of engagement with Iran's murderous Mullahs?

That President Obama should pursue diplomacy with Iran when one of our own is held in captivity is disgraceful.
