This is fairly old news, but in the event anyone had been hearing about the story only at C@L, I failed to note that last week the U.S. reporter I’d been posting about was released from prison in Iran. She has left the country, flying to Austria with her family.
Interesting back story on the circumstances surrounding her arrest here. Whatever the details, it’s good news that she was released.
Our hope and prayers are that the Iranians deliver on this pledge. Better still would be if they simply stopped doing this sort of thing altogether.
