  1. I wonder what Mrs Abedini has to say about all of this? She’s the one who originally brought this to our attention and somehow I doubt she’ll respond to any serious inquiry.

    You and I both know that you follow the money…nuff said. 🙂

  3. Rick from Texas says:

    He just posted this on his FB page:

    I have interview with Fox News today at 4:50 pm EST time interview on “Your World with Neil Cavuto” about US giving 400 Millions $ to Iran for releasing me and other 3 American hostages from Prison.

    You can fool some of the people all of the time.
    All of the people some of the time,
    but you can never fool the All Mighty….
    The buck truly stops at His Throne….
    and that is the only hope for the injustices of this life.

  5. Michael says:

    I can’t compete with Fox…they won’t ask the questions either, but they just expanded his fund raising exponentially.

  6. London says:

    Jerk is just jumping into the political arena is all. Fox News will try to make him a hero and try to start some new Democratic scandal.
    Fox viewers aren’t particularly known for their desire to find out the all the facts. It’s just another thing to feed the rage and boost the ratings.

  7. Randy says:

    I’m a fox viewer. I look for facts and I have a pretty a good BS meter. I don’t know what they are going to do with Abedini, but they are tearing up the 400 million trade for prisoners.

  8. Steve Wright says:

    The four hundred million dollar ransom that is just NOW being discovered ought to be vilified.

    Rather than blame Fox for daring to report it, one ought to wonder at the degree the other networks seek to silence it…..and why.

  9. Michael says:

    I saw it on CNN so they’re doing a damn poor job of silencing it…

  10. Michael says:

    I don’t really care about anything in this matter other than any network promoting Abedini.

  11. Randy says:

    I don’t think any media outlet will present the truth because they are scared of blowback from certain segments of Christianity. Micheal and others have raised the issues, raised the questions and no one is giving answers. But what takes the cake is his claim of doom based on dreams and visions. I wonder if he is willing to follow the OT penalty for a false prophet?

  12. Michael says:


    One can only hope… 🙂

    Based on my conversations with him, I doubt he is the one making this stuff up… I think he has writers working for him.

    I’ve had cats that were far brighter…

  13. Randy says:

    Michael All I can say is wow! Some interprising investigative journalist,who hates Christians, has not come forth with an exposé? Wonder why?

  14. Michael says:


    I’m sitting on far more than I’ve printed.
    I don’t buy into the Christian hating media meme, and even if i did it doesn’t remove the responsibility of Christian media to investigate this stuff.

    My guess is that most people have more sense than to take on Franklin Graham and the ACLJ…

  15. Michael says:

    I’ve worked with the secular media for 15 years…and found them to be more than fair when they actually take on a story.

    I’ve found the Christian media to be abject cowards and liars in comparison.

    It’s all about the ad dollars…

    …and that old missive, “touch not God’s anointed” comes to mind

  19. The mention of prophetic dreams alone should disqualify him.

  20. brian says:

    I personally think he was abused and mistreated in when in Iranian custody, I am sure it was hard to be away from his children and wife. I think he did go over there under some, not above board motives and we are not getting the total picture. If it was a private matter then that would be fine but I do think they (the entire group involved) should at least be open. To my shame I actually got into it, wrote letters, prayed, and advocated on the phone, even signed an ACLJ petition and I can’t stand those people. I am ashamed of myself for my emotionalism. Saeed does have the opportunity to make it into mid-management in the subsidiary of the corporation and if he can hold onto his support to some degree he will. He will never be a starter, though. I have shared this before and wont to much but I have had one mystical experience in my years as a Christian, I am convinced it was from Satan himself after these many years. I dont know if anyone else has night terrors, something the counselor said is common to young burn survivors even as one gets older. They are not near as horrid as when I was in the local church. I have always considered this something to be very ashamed of.

  21. once a cc guru says:

    Abedini has protectia from the highest levels of the US goberment because he was used to launder dirty money through dirty hands including the Clinton Foundation…

  22. Em ... again says:

    don’t know if i can line these thoughts up cogently, but i’ve been musing, comparing two TV scenarios this past week… there was a documentary on the 1936 U.S. Olympic rowing team (U of Washington boys from the PNW – taken from a recent book: “The Boys in the Boat”) – they were the stuff that we like to call our ‘greatest generation.’ They had hard childhoods and were tough in mind and body, but good. Then there was lawyer Kahn, the immigrant of Muslim descent on TV taking Donald Trump to task (his loss was worthy of respect). But i’m asking myself why the arrogance? Both Kahn and Trump display an arrogance that isn’t worthy of what that generation of the 20th century gave us. Do people like Abedini come into the country believing that our politicians represent the virtue of this land?

  23. Michael says:

    I don’t believe anything I read or see on Breitbart without supporting evidence.

    Abedini is a religious entrepreneur…just like many others who view faith as a business.

    Money and power are the only “virtues’ that matter…

  24. Babylon's Dread says:

    Clinton Cash is politically banned from PP

  25. Em ... again says:

    “Money and power are the only “virtues’ that matter…”
    if those who are of my generation are honest, we have equated money and virtue…
    James 2:1-9 … nothing new, i guess

  26. Em ... again says:

    “A senior employee for World Vision, the Federal Way-based international aid organization, is accused by Israel of siphoning off up to $50 million in charity money in Gaza and diverting it to the militant group Hamas. World Vision says it is shocked by the allegations and has no reason to believe they are true.” … from Seattle Times Thursday morning brief

    perhaps, we are just too distanced from some of these scenes to give support?

  27. RJR says:

    I am confused. Is he now “exposing” the alleged “ransom” for his and the other Americans release? Is he a special kind of something?

  28. Jean says:

    I’ve got one question I saw no one ask.

    Who was paying his cell phone bill?

  29. Kevin H says:

    Jean, I think Saeed’s father had previously said that he was paying for the phone. At least for what it cost for Saeed to be able to have one in prison. Not sure about the regular billing.

  30. Jean says:

    That’s an awful lot of money — streaming on a phone is wildly expensive. If he was watching porn movies, that easily runs to hundreds a month! I know because my old phone got hacked. His parents have that much money that they can pay?

    And how did he get a signal in a prison? I can’t even get a signal in Wegmans!

    It makes not sense.
