    Jason Rezaian, the Postís Tehran correspondent, was arrested on July 22 along with three other journalists, including his wife, Yeganeh (Yegi) Salehi. One has since been released, but the remaining three are still being held.Rezaian was informed on Nov. 18 that investigations into him are continuing, and that he will be held in pretrial detention for another two months, according to Human Rights Watch.
    The NGO also said it had been informed that the lawyer hired by Rezaianís family to defend the journalist has not been allowed to speak with him or review the case file.
    Rezaian is said not to have had access to a translator during his interrogation, despite his inability to read or write Persian.

    Sad news. With no surprise Iran will bring up some claim of CIA agent or what not, but wont even charge him with any crimes. Unfortunate situation.

    With stories like this of Americans being detained in countries hostile to Americans it is kind of hard to feel sorry for these people. Would someone who is wanted by police for a violent crime and didn't want to be caught walk into a government building to pay a parking fine?**** no he wouldn't because common sense will tell him that is the one place he should not be.Would a black guy who is not Uncle Ruckus go to a KKK rally in the middle of nowhere at night? **** no he wouldn't because common sense will tell him to stay away. Would a gay person go to Saudi Arabia or some other Islamo-Fascist country? **** no he wouldn't because he knows that homosexuality is a crime in those countries and that he can get executed. Yet we have Americans who think is is a bright idea to go to North Korea, Iran and other hostile countries. I am pretty sure that when these people are getting plane tickets,travel visa and making plans to go to certain countries I am sure someone is warning them to not go to those countries or to not do this or that in those countries.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The thing was he was doing nothing wrong, he was given permission to be there by the Iranian authorities, he was a journalist doing his job.

    Many countries generally give permission to people to be in their countries.It doesn't change the fact you should not go to a country that is hostile to people of your nationality. Because if they want to charge you with something then it doesn't matter what your profession is or why yo are there in that country. Your rights as American are irrelevant in many of those countries.

    This does not excuse the Iranians government actions.

    True. But common sense still says stay the hell out of that country because countries like that don't care if you are there visiting your grandma or reporting the news.
