Roxanna Saberi on her imprisonment in Iran
28-May-2009 (one comment)

Journalist Roxana Saberi, who spent four
months in an Iranian prison, returned to the United States on May 22.
Until now, she has not spoken to the media at length about her ordeal,
during which she says she faced "severe psychological and mental
pressure" to confess to being a spy.

All I heard was, "I'm not that innocent"

Thanks for posting this. I heard a portion of this inteview driving to work and I was curious to listen to the whole thing.

Roxanna was truthful in some minor areas and extremely evasive and, I dare say lying, in some very cruscial areas such as the nature of "the document", her contacts with the CIA, her work as a "journalist" with IRI big wigs and so on.

I commend her for bringing up the issue of other political prisoners, who apparently don't exists if you asked Ahmadinejad.

Listening to the interview, for some odd reason I started hearing Britney Spears song, "Oops, I Did It Again" whose corrus line is still echoing in my head. Here it is:

Oops!...I did it again

I played with your heart, got lost in the game

Oh baby, baby

Oops!...You think I'm in love

That I'm sent from above

I'm not that innocent

(Please don't laught at my choice of singers, my daughter is the one who likes her.)

Regarding the other female prisioners in Iran, here are a couple of posts to remind us to remember them:
