With the disappearance of an Arizona tourist,

Denise Thiem, missing in Spain… with the FBI

involved, along with Senator McCain, and ABC’s

Good Morning America- all this will we so try

but turn our collective heads, as a Nation, to

our own people left to languish in their captivity…

and we would forge ahead with a deal with their

captors, Iran, to think this is right, such naiveté!

When one American is left in peril… we are all left in perilous times. I do understand the need to search for Denise but see the hypocrisy of this country’s efforts- especially when we have passed one thousand days of imprisonment for Saeed Abedini… and we know where he is and who has him. If we spent as much or cared as much for one of us… then we should exert the same efforts for any other or the facade of our concern for anyone calling themselves American will leave us with a tasteless conceit.

“He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.”

Thomas Paine, Dissertation on First Principles of Government, December 23, 1791
