Caving to Iran

The British are surrendering to blackmail from Iranian proxies. The U.S. should not follow suit.
By Michael Ledeen

In American custody in Iraq are two Iranian terrorists, Ali Musa Daqduq and Qayis Khazali. Both were captured in Iraq in the spring of 2007, following the bloody attack in Karbala in which five American soldiers were murdered.

U.S. military forces in Iraq discovered that both of them were working for the Iranian Revolutionary Guards' Quds Force. The British want them released. They want them exchanged for Brits being held hostage in Iran. Those hostages are used to blackmail their country into doing things it might not otherwise do.

Knowing all this about the Brits, one has to wonder to what extent we, too, are being blackmailed by the mullahs. There are now four Americans held hostage now in Iran, the most well-known being Roxana Saberi, and two in North Korea.
