Our Family Hostage Crisis – New York Times: “Our Family Hostage Crisis”

It’s stories like this that make me a fervent believer in critical importance of open, transparent government. The leaders of Iran believe that they are exempt from scrutiny, that they are accountable to no-one.

On only one point do I disagree with Professor Bakhash. The actions of Iran in these cases don’t make the government look “inhumane”, they make them look evil. This shows them to be beasts willing to brutalize anyone who, ever so slightly, diminishes their power.
