The State Department has issued a new warning to US citizens.
Stay away from Iran, which is seeking to kidnap more Americans.
“Iranian authorities continue to unjustly detain and imprison U.S. citizens, particularly Iranian-Americans, including students, journalists, business travelers, and academics, on charges including espionage and posing a threat to national security,” State warns. “U.S. citizens traveling to Iran should very carefully weigh the risks of travel and consider postponing their travel.”
Why would Iran be hunting for Americans to capture?
Iran just released three Americans held since January. They were sent back to the U.S. at the same moment a plane filled with $400 million from the U.S. government landed in Tehran, in what the Obama administration swears was not a ransom payment.
