The Secret Trial of an American Journalist in Iran

Roxana Saberi was tried in Iran's Revolutionary Court behind closed doors yesterday.

Saberi, who was born in America, was arrested in Iran on January 31st and subsequently charged with espionage.

A verdict is expected to be announced in the next two to three weeks.

Given that Saberi is both an American and a woman I think her fate is sealed.

We must remember than in a Sharia court a woman's word is worth half that of a man.

There is one man who could speak out on her behalf: President Barack Obama.

Unfortunately, President Obama is presently preoccupied with sucking up to the Mullahs and President Ahmadinejad to give a damn.
