Obama and the party of treason say, “Give ’em nukes!” The Democrats, and propaganda wing in the media side with these devout neanderthals.
Who can forget when the murdering mullahs kidnapped our soldiers and Obama slithering away, blaming some made-up, imaginary breach of protocol?

Several Americans have been detained in Iran in recent years and Trump warned in 2017 that Tehran would face “new and serious consequences” unless all unjustly held U.S. citizens were freed.

Former FBI agent Robert Levinson disappeared while visiting Iran’s Kish Island in 2007. U.S. officials believe Levinson, who suffered from diabetes, died in captivity after meeting with an American-born Islamic militant. Iranian officials have repeatedly denied knowledge of his disappearance or whereabouts.

In October 2015, Siamak Namazi, a businessman in his mid-40s with dual U.S.-Iranian citizenship, was detained as he was visiting family in Tehran. His 82-year-old father, Baquer Namazi, was also arrested in February 2016 and later convicted of espionage charges which he denied.

Xiyue Wang, a Chinese-born U.S. citizen and graduate student from Princeton University, was arrested in Iran in 2016. He was sentenced to 10 years in jail on spying charges that he denied.

U.S. Confirms: Iran Imprisoned U.S. Navy Vet for Past Six Months

AMMAN, Jordan—The Trump administration acknowledged that Iran has been imprisoning an American Navy member for the past six months, confirming recent press reports about the U.S. citizen who is believed to have been detained since July.

“We are aware of reports of the detention of a U.S. citizen in Iran,” a State Department spokesperson told the Washington Free Beacon on background. “We have no higher priority than the safety and security of U.S. citizens abroad.”

However, “due to privacy considerations, we have no additional information to provide at this time,” the official said.

The New York Times reported Monday that a Navy veteran identified as 46-year-old Michael White, a California resident, had been seized by Iranian authorities and sent to prison in late July while he was visiting an Iranian girlfriend.

White’s mother told the Times that her son never made it to his flight out of Iran.

Both the State and Homeland Security Departments are said to be aware of the situation, but are not providing details to the press.
