Obama Calls For American Journalist's Release From Iran, It's About Time

President Obama said he's "gravely concerned" about the safety and well-being of jailed U.S. journalist Roxana Saberi and is calling for her release from an Iranian prison.

It's about time Obama said something about Iran taking our citizens hostage. Now, I understand that he can't give details about whatever negotiations that are taking place, but he should put public and international pressure on the Iranian government to release the American journalist. He had failed to do so until now.

Her trial was behind closed doors. So, we have no idea what kind of "evidence" that she was acting as a spy. More than likely it is a bogus charge just meant to humiliate the United States.
