This guy has been a hostage by the Regime for a long time and it is not clear what his ransom is. The usual fee for Americans taken hostage by the Regime is $500,000 that is generally paid by or through the Sultan of Oman. But since this guy is a retired FBI guy, his ransom is probably much higher and might be tied to something else.



I see a bunch of 'prisoner swappings' as a result of backdoor negotiation. Recently 45 Iranian hostages in Syria were released in swap with 2030? prisoners held by Assad. There was also another Iranian prisoner who was held by the US and was released just a week ago. I can't recall his name but I read it at

The funny thing is that there are no Iranians in GITMO. As usual, Iranians are being "kasyeh daghtar az ash" for someone else's cause.

I didn't know about this and it was buried on the site. It is a new piece of news actually.


amirparvizforsecularmonarchy I Love Waterfalls and Find One of the most humorous things in the world; is the notion that Americans are a greater force for good & more civilized than Nazi's, Mullahs and Communists.

If the IRI is treating an FBI agent like this, just think how it is treating Iranians. After all that is what the USA wanted for Iranians and still supports for Iranians as a result of those the USA betrayed in 1979. The Way we Iranians were Living In Iran during the Time of the Late Shah was based on Liberal and Secular Foundations, by Betraying him the USA ans Allies Betrayed Liberalism and Secularism and many other things. The West is opposed to the Peaceful Development, Progress, Human Rights, Democracy, Freedom and Justice for all Iranians as the Wests actions clearly show. They of course say one thing, but always in practice act opposed to their public statements out of pure dishonesty, immorality and Hypocrisy.

For example the UK stands for the Democratic Rights of the Falkland Island inhabitants, when it serves their own national interests for dominating a region, yet they don't have any similar concern for the Democratic Rights of the majority Shia Bahraini's who support unification with majority Shia Iran and never recognized separation from Iran. The hypocritical views of the West are so self serving at the expense of others it is nauseating. Maybe Iranians need to be clearer about the West and its crimes against them in Pursuit of their National Interests.
