State Dept. Warns: Iran Seeking to Capture U.S. Citizens


Claiming it is somehow the Obama Administration's fault.

Pretty obvious by this phrasing in the article.

The latest travel advisory, which emphasizes Iran’s desire to capture U.S. citizens, comes on the heels of a growing scandal over the Obama administration’s decision to pay Iran $400 million in cash on the same day that it freed several U.S. hostages.

The PDB is to the Right. I know many are claiming it's too far left, but factually, it's to the right of EE.

This doesn't belong in the EE.. moved to PDB.

And the Free Beacon is an aggressive conservatively leaning website.

For what is worth, the actual State Dept. advisory:

https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/alertswarnings/iran-travel-warning.html

to reiterate and highlight the risk of arrest and detention of U.S. citizens, particularly dual national Iranian-Americans. Foreigners, in particular dual nationals of Iran and Western countries including the United States, continue to be detained or prevented from leaving Iran
Of course, the Beacon uses the word "capture", which has the connotation of people being hunted, and blames Obama for something that has been happening for a long, long time, as if what the advisory says is something new, which it isn't. It's been the case since the 1980's.

You know the situation that was that basis for the movie Argo (and the fake movie Argo) was Obama's fault, right?
