    When Ahmanutjob comes to New York , we should hold him in Rikers until Iran releases the detainees.

    I agree 100% that it's a horrible price to pay for stupidity. This news put me in mind of a few of those idiots that ended up in Gitmo by attending 'study camps' in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    I hope the US and UN can find a way to apply pressure on Iran to release these boys.

    I'm having a hard time working up credence for this post because everybody knows that del is best known for his raging sympathy.
