    While the sissie left is celebrating all the gay groups that might be dancing around the Military there are still some serious issues. Former Marine Amir Hekmati who was born in Iran was arrested while vising family members in the country and sentenced to death for espionage. There is no outrage in the American so-called media and barely a mention in the A.P. What is Obama going to do about it? What is secretary of state Hillary Clinton doing about it? Wait until they cut the poor guy's head off?

    Hekmati, an Arizona-born Iranian-American who served the U.S. Marines as a rifleman from 2001 to 2005, was arrested while visiting his extended family, including two elderly grandmothers, in Tehran on Aug. 29, 2011, according to the family. The family said they were urged by the Iranian government to keep quiet about his arrest with the promise of later release, but then in December, Hekmati was shown on Iranian television allegedly confessing to being an undercover agent of the Central Intelligence Agency on a mission to infiltrate the Iranian Intelligence Ministry.

    yep. i figure in all the years i've been alive at least once it has to have been true that the captured really are spys. Going to these countries is risky - like those three idiot hikers - oh, well.

    If he's a spy he's a really shitty one, the guy is a former US Marine, he went into Iran to visit his grandmother, the Iranian authorities probably knew he was coming before he even touched the ground in Iran, if this is the caliber of spys that we have we are doing a shitty job of it.:doubt:

    No of course not but then again we heard a never ending sobbing litany on the 3 morons who knowingly backpacked into disputed Iranian territory...and the 2 knuckleheads who knowingly went to Nor Korea ( clinton went to plead their case, remember?;)) and either were or wound up as Gorite's (gore tv etc.) bots.

    thats what I get out of it.:eusa_whistle:
