Friend of Marine Held in Iran Speaks Out Against Obama Administration


Amir Hekmati, a U.S. veteran jailed and tortured in Iran for over three years, has been ignored by the Obama administration, as they’ve been negotiating a nuclear deal with his captors.

Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren and Montel Williams have been trying to raise awareness of the Marine veteran’s plight, and blasting the liberal media and the White House for ignoring him.

Now, a friend of Hekmati, Sgt. Gabriel Justice is also hammering the administration, saying he is “disgusted” with the President’s willingness to leave an American behind and accusing Secretary of State John Kerry, of “playing footsie with Iran” while his friend is being tortured.

Via Fox News Insider:

Hekmati’s friend, Sgt. Gabriel Justice, called the past three-and-a-half years some of the most painful of his life.

“Amir is not just a U.S. citizen, he’s my warrior brother, a United States Marine,” Justice said. “I am absolutely appalled, and I am disgusted with our president for his lack of effort in getting him back.”

Justice charged Obama with turning his back on the veteran, and he slammed Obama’s “accomplice,” Secretary of State John Kerry, for “playing footsie with Iran” while Hekmati is tortured in prison.
