The plight of the Americans seized and held by the government of Iran is another one of the stories that is mysteriously underreported in the MSM. Amir Taheri devotes an excellent column to two of the Americn hostages held by Iran in his New York Post column “The conspiracy that wasn’t.” It’s an excellent column, not easily excerpted except for its conclusion:
First, no dialogue is possible with a regime that demands nothing short of total submission at home and abroad. Second, the regime feels weak enough to fear a “velvet revolution” led by women, workers, students and, ultimately, even the more moderate clergy. Hmm… maybe someone will try it, even though the two captive Americans did not.
