Iran: US Hostage Concern Is “Useless Advice”

From those champions of international diplomacy at Reuters:


Iran dismisses U.S. concern over held Iranian-Americans

Tue Jun 5, 2007

TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran said on Tuesday it did not need U.S. advice about how to deal with Iranian-Americans Tehran has detained and said Washington should focus on its own cases of human rights abuses.

Iran has charged three dual nationals with spying. Washington has said a fourth has also been detained and has demanded that they all be released unconditionally.

“Instead of giving useless advice, it is better for Americans to evaluate their own approach in secret prisons, bad behavior and inhumane confrontation with prisoners in Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini was quoted as saying by Iran’s ISNA news agency.

Iran often cites the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and abuses by U.S. forces in Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison when it rebuts accusations on rights issues from the West.

“The Americans are making a fuss over the arrest of these people when they have kidnapped and tortured tens of innocent people from different nations without the smallest reason and proof,” Hosseini said…

We really need always to remember how our watchdog media has supplied our enemies with all of their propaganda points.

And how many lives this has cost.
