  • THAT HE HAD, IN FACT, BEEN MOVED TO CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE OFFICE
  • 00:00:58.090 --> 00:01:02.190
  • IN IRAN, IN TEHRAN. I EXPECTED THAT THAT WAS ACTUALLY GOOD
  • 00:01:02.200 --> 00:01:06.270
  • NEWS. AND I SAY THAT BECAUSE MOVING TO THE CENTRAL
  • 00:01:06.280 --> 00:01:10.210

  • UNFOLDED OVER THE NIGHT. WE WERE ON PHONE CALLS TILL VERY, VERY
  • 00:01:21.150 --> 00:01:25.040
  • EARLY IN THE MORNING THE NEXT MORNING. PROBABLY GOT TO SLEEP

  • 00:02:02.250 --> 00:02:05.130
  • -MILLIONS. -SEEN MILLIONS OF TIMES OVER THE LAST FEW DAYS.
  • 00:02:05.140 --> 00:02:07.280
  • AND IT REALLY WAS AN AMAZING DAY. -YEAH, AND IT IS AN

  • ABOUT ON THE RELEASE OF THE PRISONERS? -WELL, IT'S A DAY OF
  • 00:02:24.110 --> 00:02:26.260
  • REJOICING, PLAIN AND SIMPLE, JAY. I MEAN, THERE ARE OBVIOUSLY
  • 00:02:26.270 --> 00:02:29.020
  • SOME DETAILS HERE THAT ARE TROUBLING TO SOME. BUT THE
  • 00:02:29.030 --> 00:02:31.050
  • BOTTOM LINE IS MANY HAVE ENGAGED AND ALL OF THEM TODAY ARE

  • REJOICING THAT THEY'RE HOME. -THIS WAS A BIG WIN! AND WE'LL
  • 00:02:34.250 --> 00:02:37.190
  • TALK ABOUT THAT AND WHAT THE JOB OF THE ACLJ WAS IN THIS KIND OF
  • 00:02:37.200 --> 00:02:40.180
  • CASE AND HOW YOU HANDLE IT. WE HAVE A PETITION UP, THOUGH,
  • 00:02:40.190 --> 00:02:43.150
  • BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT I SAY WHEN THESE CASES ARE DONE? NEXT CASE!
  • 00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:46.060
  • SAEED ABEDINI'S CASE IS CLOSED. IT'S OVER. AND THAT'S A GOOD
  • 00:02:46.070 --> 00:02:50.170
  • THING AND IT ENDED SUCCESSFULLY. WE'VE GOT A LOT MORE AHEAD
  • 00:02:50.180 --> 00:02:53.040
  • INCLUDING YOUR CALLS ON THE RELEASE OF CHRISTIAN PASTOR
  • 00:02:53.050 --> 00:02:56.060
  • SAEED ABEDINI. BACK WITH MORE IN A MOMENT.
  • 00:02:56.070 --> 00:02:58.180
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:02:58.190 --> 00:03:02.200
  • JAY SEKULOW: HERE'S WHAT YOU'VE GOT,
  • 00:03:02.210 --> 00:03:04.030
  • AMERICAN PASTOR SAEED ABEDINI HAS BEEN RELEASED AS HAS JASON
  • 00:03:04.040 --> 00:03:07.170
  • REZAIAN FROM THE WASHINGTON POST AND AMIR HEKMATI, THE FORMER
  • 00:03:07.180 --> 00:03:09.240
  • SERGEANT U.S. MARINE. THEY'VE BEEN RELEASED. A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:03:09.250 --> 00:03:14.020
  • ARE ASKING ON FACEBOOK AND PERISCOPE WAS THIS A GOOD DEAL
  • 00:03:14.030 --> 00:03:16.280
  • OR NOT A GOOD DEAL. HERE'S WHAT YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND, LOOK AT
  • 00:03:16.290 --> 00:03:20.070
  • OUR SCENARIO THAT WE'RE IN, WE HAD A CASE WHERE WE GET
  • 00:03:20.080 --> 00:03:24.210
  • CONTACTED BY THE WIFE OF AN AMERICAN CITIZEN, A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:03:24.220 --> 00:03:28.190
  • PASTOR, WHO HAS BEEN ARRESTED IN IRAN. THEY INITIALLY WENT TO THE
  • 00:03:28.200 --> 00:03:33.060
  • STATE DEPARTMENT AND THEY GOT NO ASSISTANCE, INITIALLY FROM THE
  • 00:03:33.070 --> 00:03:36.090
  • STATE DEPARTMENT. SO OUR JOB AT THAT POINT, BECAUSE WE'VE
  • 00:03:36.100 --> 00:03:38.250
  • HANDLED THESE BEFORE, IS TO DO A COUPLE OF THINGS. #1, KEEP YOUR
  • 00:03:38.260 --> 00:03:43.060
  • CLIENT ALIVE DURING THE PENDENCY OF THE HOSTAGE TAKING. AND I
  • 00:03:43.070 --> 00:03:47.220
  • CALLED THEM HOSTAGES, SO OUR JOB WAS KEEP THE CLIENT ALIVE. LOGAN
  • 00:03:47.230 --> 00:03:51.020
  • SEKULOW: ABSOLUTELY. AND THAT IS A LOT OF QUESTIONS THAT COME IN.
  • 00:03:51.030 --> 00:03:54.020
  • WE HAVE SOME CALLS KIND OF RELATED TO THAT TOO I THINK WE
  • 00:03:54.030 --> 00:03:56.100
  • SHOULD MAYBE GO AHEAD AND TAKE ONE. -LET ME JUST SAY, CAN I
  • 00:03:56.110 --> 00:03:58.090
  • ADD ONE OTHER THING, SO KEEP THE CLIENT ALIVE, AND THEN #2,
  • 00:03:58.100 --> 00:04:01.150
  • ULTIMATELY SECURE THEIR FREEDOM. IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, IT WAS
  • 00:04:01.160 --> 00:04:05.290
  • SUPPOSED TO BE INDEPENDENT OF THE NUCLEAR DEAL. WE NEVER
  • 00:04:06.000 --> 00:04:08.110
  • BELIEVED THAT. WE KNEW THEY WERE BEING HOSTAGES. WE CALLED THEM
  • 00:04:08.120 --> 00:04:11.000
  • HOSTAGES. BUT I'M NOT GOING TO CHASTISE THE PRESIDENT FOR
  • 00:04:11.010 --> 00:04:15.250
  • GETTING THE AMERICANS OUT. I COULD SAY I DISAGREE WITH THE
  • 00:04:15.260 --> 00:04:18.070
  • DEAL WITH IRAN. I THINK IT'S A HORRIBLE DEAL. BUT I'M NOT
  • 00:04:18.080 --> 00:04:20.160
  • CHASTISING THE PRESIDENT THAT AT LEAST AT THE END OF THE DAY WE
  • 00:04:20.170 --> 00:04:24.030
  • GOT THE AMERICANS OUT. DO I LIKE THE WAY IT WENT DOWN? IT SHOULD
  • 00:04:24.040 --> 00:04:28.200
  • HAVE NEVER BEEN IN THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE. HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN
  • 00:04:28.210 --> 00:04:30.180
  • OUT WHEN THIS WHOLE DISCUSSION STARTED OVER A YEAR AGO. BUT
  • 00:04:30.190 --> 00:04:33.190
  • NEVERTHELESS, WE WERE NOT SUCCESSFUL AT THAT POINT, WE'RE
  • 00:04:33.200 --> 00:04:36.210
  • SUCCESSFUL NOW. SO I HOPE THAT ADDS SOME OF THE CONTROVERSY,
  • 00:04:36.220 --> 00:04:39.060
  • DON'T LOOK AT THESE AS 1 GIANT ISSUE. THEY'RE NOT. OF COURSE
  • 00:04:39.070 --> 00:04:41.230
  • THEY'RE INTERRELATED. WE SAID THAT FROM THE BEGINNING BUT THIS
  • 00:04:41.240 --> 00:04:44.240
  • IS WHAT WE'VE GOT. -LET'S GO TO THE PHONES. LET'S GO TO ROBERT
  • 00:04:44.250 --> 00:04:47.070
  • WHO'S CALLING FROM SARASOTA, FL. ROBERT WELCOME TO JAY SEKULOW
  • 00:04:47.080 --> 00:04:49.280
  • LIVE. YOU'RE ON THE AIR. -HI, ROBERT. -HEY, HOW ARE YOU
  • 00:04:49.290 --> 00:04:52.190
  • DOING, JAY AND JORDAN? -GOOD. -I'VE GOT A QUESTION FOR YOU.
  • 00:04:52.200 --> 00:04:56.110
  • I'VE BEEN LISTENING TO YOU FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS, -YES, SIR.
  • 00:04:56.120 --> 00:04:59.110
  • -YOU GUYS ARE REALLY CRITICAL WHEN IT COMES TO OBAMA AND HIS
  • 00:04:59.120 --> 00:05:03.180
  • ADMINISTRATION. -YEAH. -I JUST WANT TO KNOW ARE YOU GOING TO
  • 00:05:03.190 --> 00:05:06.160
  • GIVE HIM SOME CREDIT, HIM AND THE SECRETARY KERRY, AND
  • 00:05:06.170 --> 00:05:10.110
  • EVERYBODY ELSE THAT WAS INVOLVED FOR GETTING THESE GUYS HOME?
  • 00:05:10.120 --> 00:05:13.250
  • -WELL, HERE'S WHAT I SAID, ROBERT, YOU'RE RIGHT, WE ARE
  • 00:05:13.260 --> 00:05:15.260
  • CRITICAL OF THE ADMINISTRATION AND THE POLICY. AND I'VE BEEN
  • 00:05:15.270 --> 00:05:17.260
  • CRITICAL, AS YOU KNOW, ON THE IRAN DEAL BECAUSE IT'S NOT
  • 00:05:17.270 --> 00:05:20.120
  • REALLY A DEAL AT ALL. BUT I SAID, AND YOU MAY HAVE BEEN ON
  • 00:05:20.130 --> 00:05:24.000
  • HOLD AND MAYBE COULDN'T HEAR IT, I JUST SAID THAT AT THE END OF
  • 00:05:24.010 --> 00:05:27.060
  • THE DAY WE ASKED THE PRESIDENT AND THE ADMINISTRATION TO DO
  • 00:05:27.070 --> 00:05:29.090
  • SOMETHING, AND THAT WAS TO GET THESE AMERICANS OUT AND THEY DID
  • 00:05:29.100 --> 00:05:32.240
  • IT. DID IT TAKE LONGER THAN WE LIKED, AND ROBERT, YOU WOULD
  • 00:05:32.250 --> 00:05:36.010
  • AGREE, ALL OF US WOULD AGREE IT TOOK LONGER THAN WE WOULD HAVE
  • 00:05:36.020 --> 00:05:38.000
  • LIKED, BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, I'M NOT GOING TO SAY THE
  • 00:05:38.010 --> 00:05:40.120
  • PRESIDENT DIDN'T DO WHAT WE ASKED HIM SPECIFICALLY TO DO IN
  • 00:05:40.130 --> 00:05:43.100
  • MEETINGS WITH THE WHITE HOUSE STAFF, WITH THE SECRETARY OF
  • 00:05:43.110 --> 00:05:46.000
  • STATE'S OFFICE, WITH THE AMBASSADOR, I MEAN, I CANNOT
  • 00:05:46.010 --> 00:05:48.230
  • TELL YOU HOW MANY PLACES, ROBERT, WE'VE BEEN AROUND THE
  • 00:05:48.240 --> 00:05:51.130
  • GLOBE AND IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU'VE LISTENED TO THE BROADCAST A LONG
  • 00:05:51.140 --> 00:05:53.100
  • TIME SO YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. WE'VE BEEN
  • 00:05:53.110 --> 00:05:55.130
  • WORKING ON THIS CASE FOR A LONG TIME. BUT WE'RE PLEASED THAT THE
  • 00:05:55.140 --> 00:05:59.270
  • PRESIDENT, AT LEAST AT THE END OF THE DAY, AND I DON'T LIKE THE
  • 00:05:59.280 --> 00:06:03.210
  • DEAL FROM IRAN, THAT THE AMERICANS WERE RELEASED, I
  • 00:06:03.220 --> 00:06:06.290
  • THOUGHT THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN RELEASED AT THE OUTSET. BUT
  • 00:06:07.000 --> 00:06:09.070
  • WE'RE GLAD THAT THEY DID IT AND I SENT A NOTE TO THE PRESIDENT.
  • 00:06:09.080 --> 00:06:12.160
  • I DON'T AGREE WITH THE PRESIDENT ON MUCH, YOU'RE RIGHT, I HAVE
  • 00:06:12.170 --> 00:06:14.190
  • BEEN VERY CRITICAL ON THE POLICIES AND CRITICAL ON THE
  • 00:06:14.200 --> 00:06:16.140
  • POLICY WITH IRAN. I THINK IT'S THE WRONG POLICY. BUT WE HAD A
  • 00:06:16.150 --> 00:06:18.270
  • JOB HERE AS LAWYERS AT THE ACLJ AND OVER 1.100.000 OF YOU JOINED
  • 00:06:18.280 --> 00:06:24.150
  • WITH US IN THAT EFFORT. SO A HUGE THANK YOU TO YOU ALL TOO
  • 00:06:24.160 --> 00:06:27.190
  • BECAUSE THIS IS THE FACT OF THE MATTER. YOU MENTIONED THE
  • 00:06:27.200 --> 00:06:30.180
  • PRESIDENT. LET ME PLAY YOU A COMMENT THE PRESIDENT MADE AND
  • 00:06:30.190 --> 00:06:32.240
  • I'LL TELL YOU HOW THIS MOVED THIS THING FORWARD PRETTY
  • 00:06:32.250 --> 00:06:35.010
  • AGRESSIVELY. THIS WAS AT THE NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST LAST
  • 00:06:35.020 --> 00:06:38.120
  • YEAR. -LAST YEAR WE PRAYED TOGETHER FOR PASTOR SAEED
  • 00:06:38.130 --> 00:06:42.190
  • ABEDINI, DETAINED IN IRAN SINCE 2012. AND I WAS RECENTLY IN
  • 00:06:42.200 --> 00:06:48.260
  • BOISE, IDAHO AND HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET WITH PASTOR
  • 00:06:48.270 --> 00:06:52.230
  • ABEDINI'S BEAUTIFUL WIFE AND WONDERFUL CHILDREN AND TO CONVEY
  • 00:06:52.240 --> 00:06:58.160
  • TO THEM THAT OUR COUNTRY HAS NOT FORGOTTEN BROTHER SAEED AND THAT
  • 00:06:58.170 --> 00:07:02.220
  • WE'RE DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN TO BRING HIM HOME. -SO THIS IS
  • 00:07:02.230 --> 00:07:06.060
  • PART OF GLOBAL DIPLOMACY. I MEAN, THAT'S WHAT THIS WAS ALL
  • 00:07:06.070 --> 00:07:08.210
  • ABOUT AT THE END OF THE DAY. ALRIGHT, LET'S TAKE SOME MORE
  • 00:07:08.220 --> 00:07:11.020
  • CALLS AND COMMENTS 800-684-3110. -YEAH, I THINK WHAT'S CLEAR IN
  • 00:07:11.030 --> 00:07:14.010
  • THAT COMMENT THAT HE MADE LAST YEAR WAS HE'LL DO ANYTHING HE
  • 00:07:14.020 --> 00:07:15.290
  • CAN TO GET THEM HOME. AND I THINK HE EVEN SAID THAT IN A
  • 00:07:16.000 --> 00:07:18.160
  • SPEECH LATER ON, AND THAT'S PRECISELY WHAT HE DID, WHICH WAS
  • 00:07:18.170 --> 00:07:20.260
  • WHATEVER HE COULD TO GET HIM HOME. SO THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:07:20.270 --> 00:07:23.010
  • LOOK AT LEAST THE POSITIVE OF SOMEONE WHO AT LEAST MET WITH
  • 00:07:23.020 --> 00:07:25.280
  • THE FAMILY, -LET ME SAY THIS, THE PRESIDENT ALSO CALLED, YOU
  • 00:07:25.290 --> 00:07:27.180
  • KNOW, LOOK, I HAVE BEEN VERY CRITICAL AND WILL BE TILL THE
  • 00:07:27.190 --> 00:07:31.010
  • VERY END OF THE THIS ADMINISTRATION ON THE POLICIES
  • 00:07:31.020 --> 00:07:33.030
  • OF THIS WHITE HOUSE, OKAY? ON A HOST OF THINGS. THERE'S BEEN A
  • 00:07:33.040 --> 00:07:36.020
  • FEW TIMES WHERE I'VE SAID WE'VE AGREED WITH THEM ON SOMETHING,
  • 00:07:36.030 --> 00:07:39.030
  • THE USE OF DRONE STRIKES, THE TECHNICAL ASPECTS OF THAT I
  • 00:07:39.040 --> 00:07:42.000
  • THOUGHT HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED AND THAT'S BEEN GOOD. WHERE I'VE
  • 00:07:42.010 --> 00:07:44.280
  • BEEN CRITICAL AND WHERE I WILL BE CRITICAL IS THIS DEAL WITH
  • 00:07:44.290 --> 00:07:47.090
  • IRAN I THINK WAS HORRENDOUS. HAVING SAID THAT, THE PRESIDENT
  • 00:07:47.100 --> 00:07:51.010
  • OF THE UNITED STATES CALLED NAGHMEH ABEDINI YESTERDAY AND
  • 00:07:51.020 --> 00:07:54.010
  • SAID YOU ASKED FOR ME TO GET YOUR HUSBAND RELEASED. I TOLD
  • 00:07:54.020 --> 00:07:57.060
  • YOU I WILL NOT FORGET HIM, AND I WILL WORK DILIGENTLY. NOW THAT
  • 00:07:57.070 --> 00:08:00.280
  • DOESN'T MEAN DURING THAT PERIOD OF THE YEAR WE DID NOTHING. OUR
  • 00:08:00.290 --> 00:08:03.190
  • MOST INTENSE DIPLOMACY WAS THAT YEAR. BUT OUR JOB, AND I WANT
  • 00:08:03.200 --> 00:08:07.070
  • EVERYBODY THAT'S LISTENING TO THIS ON RADIO AND ON FACEBOOK
  • 00:08:07.080 --> 00:08:11.040
  • AND PERISCOPE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE MISSION OF THE AMERICAN
  • 00:08:11.050 --> 00:08:13.070
  • CENTER FOR LAW AND JUSTICE WAS IN THIS CASE, WAS TO KEEP HIM
  • 00:08:13.080 --> 00:08:17.020
  • ALIVE, SAEED ABEDINI, AND SECURE HIS RELEASE. AND WE DID THAT.
  • 00:08:17.030 --> 00:08:20.270
  • ALRIGHT, LET'S TAKE SOME MORE CALLS. -ALRIGHT, LET'S GO BACK
  • 00:08:20.280 --> 00:08:22.240
  • TO THE PHONES. LET'S GO TO THOMAS WHO'S CALLING FROM CASTLE

  • 00:08:27.170 --> 00:08:32.200
  • ANYTHING HE COULD DO TO GET HIM OUT OF THAT JAIL. -YEAH. -HE
  • 00:08:32.210 --> 00:08:41.090
  • FINALLY DID SOMETHING FOR OUR COUNTRY, WHICH AS SOON AS I
  • 00:08:41.100 --> 00:08:46.080
  • HEARD THAT NEWS, I'M LIKE, IT JUST DAWNED ON ME, JAY SEKULOW
  • 00:08:46.090 --> 00:08:49.250
  • AND EVERYBODY THERE, FINALLY WAS WORKING DILIGENTLY DAY AND
  • 00:08:49.260 --> 00:08:55.120
  • NIGHT. -WELL, THOMAS, WE WERE WORKING DILIGENTLY FOR 3 ½
  • 00:08:55.130 --> 00:08:57.130
  • YEARS, ALMOST 4 YEARS ON THIS CASE. THERE WERE TIMES WHEN IT
  • 00:08:57.140 --> 00:09:00.040
  • WAS IN THE NEWS. THERE WERE TIMES WHEN IT WAS NOT. AND
  • 00:09:00.050 --> 00:09:03.050
  • THAT'S THE NATURE OF DIPLOMACY, THAN. AND THAN WAS WORKING ON
  • 00:09:03.060 --> 00:09:06.000
  • THIS WITH US. AND THAN, THERE WERE TIMES WE WERE VERY PUBLIC
  • 00:09:06.010 --> 00:09:08.150
  • ABOUT IT, AND TIMES WE COULD NOT BE PUBLIC ABOUT IT, INCLUDING
  • 00:09:08.160 --> 00:09:11.140
  • THE LAST 2 MONTHS. -THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN A MULTI-PRONGED
  • 00:09:11.150 --> 00:09:15.030
  • EFFORT, JAY. I MEAN, EVERYTHING FROM PUSHING THE ADMINISTRATION
  • 00:09:15.040 --> 00:09:17.080
  • TO PUSHING MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, TO PUSHING THE UNITED NATIONS,
  • 00:09:17.090 --> 00:09:19.280
  • OTHER INTERNATIONAL COUNTRIES. AND YOU KNOW, I THINK A LOT OF
  • 00:09:19.290 --> 00:09:22.160
  • PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE NEXUS HERE. WELL, THINK BACK TO
  • 00:09:22.170 --> 00:09:24.270
  • THE VERY FIRST HEARING THAT WE HAD ON THIS WHEN THE STATE
  • 00:09:24.280 --> 00:09:27.050
  • DEPARTMENT DIDN'T EVEN COME DOWN THE STREET TO SHOW UP TO
  • 00:09:27.060 --> 00:09:30.050
  • TESTIFY. THAT'S HOW MUCH OF A STRUGGLE IT WAS AT ONE POINT.
  • 00:09:30.060 --> 00:09:32.180
  • -YES. -WE WORKED REALLY HARD TO CHANGE THE ENGAGEMENT AND
  • 00:09:32.190 --> 00:09:35.100
  • THINK ABOUT HOW FAR IT WENT. NOT ONLY DID YOU GET THE PRESIDENT'S
  • 00:09:35.110 --> 00:09:38.110
  • COMMENTS THAT YOU JUST PLAYED, THE PRESIDENT PERSONALLY MET
  • 00:09:38.120 --> 00:09:41.070
  • WITH NAGHMEH ABEDINI AND THE CHILDREN. SO THIS WAS ALL PART
  • 00:09:41.080 --> 00:09:44.220
  • OF THE STRATEGY, JAY. WERE THEY IN THE RIGHT PLACE NATURALLY AND
  • 00:09:44.230 --> 00:09:47.180
  • IMMEDIATELY? NO. BUT THAT IS WHY WE ENGAGED. AND AT THE END OF
  • 00:09:47.190 --> 00:09:50.200
  • THE DAY, TODAY IS A GOOD DAY. THEY GOT TO THE RIGHT PLACE AND
  • 00:09:50.210 --> 00:09:53.170
  • SAEED IS COMING HOME. -AND THE CASE IS CLOSED. I NEED TO
  • 00:09:53.180 --> 00:09:56.120
  • REITERATE THAT. I MEAN, WHAT WE SAID ON SATURDAY WHEN WE DID
  • 00:09:56.130 --> 00:09:59.090
  • THAT VIDEO PIECE, THE CASE IS CLOSED. WE HAVE DONE WHAT OUR
  • 00:09:59.100 --> 00:10:04.080
  • TASK WAS IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, WHICH WAS TO SECURE THE
  • 00:10:04.090 --> 00:10:07.040
  • RELEASE OF THE PASTOR. WE WERE ENCOURAGING THE OTHER AMERICANS.
  • 00:10:07.050 --> 00:10:10.020
  • AS THAN JUST MENTIONED, WE HAD TIMES WHEN THE STATE DEPARTMENT
  • 00:10:10.030 --> 00:10:12.150
  • DIDN'T EVEN SHOW UP FOR CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS. AND WE
  • 00:10:12.160 --> 00:10:14.210
  • WENT TO WORK ON THIS AND FOUGHT BACK. AND THE GOOD NEWS HERE IS
  • 00:10:14.220 --> 00:10:17.030
  • WE WERE SUCCESSFUL. BUT WE COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT
  • 00:10:17.040 --> 00:10:20.020
  • YOU ALL. AND I DON'T WANT TO GET INTO THE POLITICS. I'LL TALK
  • 00:10:20.030 --> 00:10:22.170
  • ABOUT IT, BUT I'M NOT GOING TO BE CRITICAL OF THE PRESIDENT FOR
  • 00:10:22.180 --> 00:10:25.010
  • FINALLY, AT THE END OF THE DAY, GETTING THE AMERICANS HOME. I
  • 00:10:25.020 --> 00:10:28.150
  • MEAN, YOU COULD BE CRITICAL OF THE PRESIDENT ON A LOT OF POLICY
  • 00:10:28.160 --> 00:10:32.020
  • POINTS, AND BELIEVE ME, I AM, BUT IN MY COMMUNICATIONS WITH
  • 00:10:32.030 --> 00:10:35.120
  • THE WHITE HOUSE THIS WEEKEND, I TOLD THEM THANK YOU. WHY? WELL,
  • 00:10:35.130 --> 00:10:38.210
  • FIRST OF ALL, WE MAY HAVE MORE OF THESE. IN FACT, THREE HAVE
  • 00:10:38.220 --> 00:10:41.080
  • BEEN TAKEN TODAY OUT OF IRAQ. SO IT DOESN'T STOP FOR US TODAY.
  • 00:10:41.090 --> 00:10:45.110
  • WE'VE GOT OTHER CASES WE'RE HANDLING RIGHT NOW. SO EVERY
  • 00:10:45.120 --> 00:10:48.120
  • ONCE IN A WHILE YOU SIT BACK AND YOU REFLECT AND YOU SAY, OKAY,
  • 00:10:48.130 --> 00:10:51.270
  • AT THE END OF THE DAY, THIS WAS A GOOD CONCLUSION. DOES THAT
  • 00:10:51.280 --> 00:10:56.220
  • MEAN THE DEAL WITH IRAN WAS GREAT? I THINK THE DEAL WITH
  • 00:10:56.230 --> 00:10:59.060
  • IRAN WAS AWFUL. I DON'T THINK I COULD BE ANY CLEARER. IS IT
  • 00:10:59.070 --> 00:11:03.030
  • GREAT THAT THE AMERICANS ARE RELEASED? YEAH. IT'S GREAT THAT
  • 00:11:03.040 --> 00:11:06.140
  • THE AMERICANS ARE RELEASED. COMMENTS COMING IN? -SURE,
  • 00:11:06.150 --> 00:11:08.170
  • THERE ARE SOME COMMENTS COMING IN. A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE CURIOUS
  • 00:11:08.180 --> 00:11:10.010
  • ABOUT THE SPECIFICS OF THE DEAL. THERE'S ALSO THOUGHTS ON BOB
  • 00:11:10.020 --> 00:11:12.150
  • LEVINSON, HIS CURRENT SITUATION. THE PRESIDENT SPOKE ABOUT THAT A
  • 00:11:12.160 --> 00:11:15.060
  • LITTLE BIT AS WELL SAYING THAT WE CONTINUE TO REALLY SEARCH FOR
  • 00:11:15.070 --> 00:11:18.020
  • HIM AT THIS POINT. -YEAH, THE IRANIANS SAID THAT THEY WILL
  • 00:11:18.030 --> 00:11:20.200
  • COOPERATE IN SEARCHING FOR THE WHEREABOUTS OF ROBERT LEVINSON.
  • 00:11:20.210 --> 00:11:22.240
  • I MEAN, IT'S BEEN 4 YEARS, I GUESS, SINCE ANYONE HAS HEARD
  • 00:11:22.250 --> 00:11:25.140
  • FROM HIM. SO I SUSPECT THAT'S PROBABLY NOT GOOD NEWS, THOUGH
  • 00:11:25.150 --> 00:11:28.220
  • WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO HOLD THE LEVINSON FAMILY IN PRAYER.
  • 00:11:28.230 --> 00:11:32.090
  • BUT THIS CASE IS, THAN, VERY QUICKLY HERE, SAY IT AGAIN, WENT
  • 00:11:32.100 --> 00:11:35.030
  • FROM ZERO TO CONCLUSION; IT WAS 3 ½ YEARS AND WE STARTED AT
  • 00:11:35.040 --> 00:11:38.290
  • GROUND ZERO HERE. -IT WENT TO A POINT, JAY, WHERE THE STATE
  • 00:11:39.000 --> 00:11:42.040
  • DEPARTMENT WAS TELLING NAGHMEH THAT THERE WAS NOTHING THAT
  • 00:11:42.050 --> 00:11:44.010
  • COULD BE DONE AND THEY WOULDN'T EVEN SEND SOMEONE DOWN THE
  • 00:11:44.020 --> 00:11:45.240
  • STREET TO TELL CONGRESS THE SAME THING. TO THE POINT WHERE THE
  • 00:11:45.250 --> 00:11:48.280
  • PRESIDENT IS PERSONALLY MEETING WITH THE FAMILY AND NOW PASTOR
  • 00:11:48.290 --> 00:11:51.110
  • SAEED IS HOME. AND LISTEN, JUST TO BE FORWARD LOOKING ON THIS,
  • 00:11:51.120 --> 00:11:54.130
  • LIKE YOU'VE BEEN, JAY, THIS ALSO GIVES US AN OPENING TO SAY TO
  • 00:11:54.140 --> 00:11:58.030
  • THE ADMINISTRATION, THIS IS WHY THAT DESIGNATION OF GENOCIDE IS
  • 00:11:58.040 --> 00:12:01.150
  • SO IMPORTANT. PASTOR SAEED IS NOT THE ONLY ONE. THERE ARE
  • 00:12:01.160 --> 00:12:04.010
  • OTHERS AROUND THE WORLD. -SO LET ME GIVE YOU THE STATUS OF
  • 00:12:04.020 --> 00:12:07.110
  • PASTOR SAEED. SO HE WAS TAKEN, THEY CAME OUT THROUGH
  • 00:12:07.120 --> 00:12:10.280
  • SWITZERLAND, WHICH IS NORMALLY DIPLOMATICALLY HOW THESE ARE
  • 00:12:10.290 --> 00:12:13.160
  • HANDLED, WHICH TRANSFERRED TO ANOTHER AIRCRAFT WITH THE OTHER
  • 00:12:13.170 --> 00:12:16.220
  • AMERICANS. THEY ARE IN A HOSPITAL AT RAMSTEIN AIR FORCE
  • 00:12:16.230 --> 00:12:20.180
  • BASE, A MILITARY BASE IN GERMANY. SO THEY ARE TECHNICALLY
  • 00:12:20.190 --> 00:12:25.220
  • ON U.S. CONTROLLED SOIL IN THAT SENSE. BUT THEY ARE BEING
  • 00:12:25.230 --> 00:12:29.020
  • EVALUATED. WE GO A QUESTION ON FACEBOOK RIGHT NOW. LET ME
  • 00:12:29.030 --> 00:12:32.140
  • ANSWER THAT QUESTION, LOGAN. YOU HAVE IT THERE? -I CAN PULL IT
  • 00:12:32.150 --> 00:12:36.080
  • UP HERE. FACEBOOK SAID WHEN WILL THE AMERICANS COME BACK TO THE
  • 00:12:36.090 --> 00:12:38.220
  • U.S.? -WHEN WILL THE AMERICANS COME BACK TO THE U.S.? WE DON'T
  • 00:12:38.230 --> 00:12:41.270
  • KNOW YET. THEY ARE STILL BEING MEDICALLY EVALUATED. IT COULD BE
  • 00:12:41.280 --> 00:12:44.140
  • DAYS, IT COULD BE WEEKS. WE HAVE A LOT MORE AHEAD ON THE RELEASE
  • 00:12:44.150 --> 00:12:47.210
  • OF PASTOR SAEED ABEDINI WHO WAS JAILED IN IRAN FOR 3 ½ YEARS
  • 00:12:47.220 --> 00:12:51.210
  • BECAUSE OF HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH. HE IS NOW FREE. GOD ANSWERED A
  • 00:12:51.220 --> 00:12:55.240
  • LOT OF PRAYERS FROM A LOT OF PEOPLE. WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE
  • 00:12:55.250 --> 00:12:58.280
  • IN A MOMENT.
  • 00:12:58.290 --> 00:12:59.190
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:12:59.200 --> 00:13:04.010
  • JAY SEKULOW: SO IF YOU'RE JUST

  • JOINING US AND HAVEN'T HEARD THE NEWS, WHICH ABOUT 2 ½ MILLION
  • 00:13:05.100 --> 00:13:08.000
  • PEOPLE HAVE BECAUSE WE WENT TO FACEBOOK, WHICH IS A GREAT WAY
  • 00:13:08.010 --> 00:13:12.050
  • TO BE ABLE TO DO THIS, ON SATURDAY MORNING EARLY WHEN I
  • 00:13:12.060 --> 00:13:15.280
  • GOT WORD IT WAS CONFIRMED. AND ABOUT ALMOST 2.400.000 PEOPLE
  • 00:13:15.290 --> 00:13:19.280
  • HAVE VIEWED IT. AND WE WENT TO FACEBOOK TO SAY THAT PASTOR
  • 00:13:19.290 --> 00:13:22.080
  • SAEED ABEDINI HAS BEEN RELEASED ALONG WITH THE OTHER AMERICANS.
  • 00:13:22.090 --> 00:13:25.000
  • SO THIS WAS A VERY GOOD CONCLUSION TO A VERY DIFFICULT,
  • 00:13:25.010 --> 00:13:30.000
  • VERY DIFFICULT CASE. SO WE'VE GOT A LOT OF CALLS AND COMMENTS

  • 00:14:22.230 --> 00:14:28.060
  • PART OF WHAT GOD USED TO DO IT. BUT GOD GETS THE CREDIT FOR IT.
  • 00:14:28.070 --> 00:14:31.250
  • IT HAS BEEN A LONG WEEKEND. THE WEEKEND IS OVER BUT TO ME MY
  • 00:14:31.260 --> 00:14:34.020
  • WEEKEND KIND OF BLURRED INTO MY WEEK. BUT THE CONCLUSION IS
  • 00:14:34.030 --> 00:14:38.030
  • GOOD. WE'RE PLEASED WITH IT AND AS I SAID, THE CASE IS CLOSED. I
  • 00:14:38.040 --> 00:14:42.220
  • MEAN, FOR US HE IS IN U.S. CUSTODY. AND WHEN I SAY CUSTODY,
  • 00:14:42.230 --> 00:14:46.100
  • A U.S. AIR FORCE BASE, OUR MILITARY BASE, RAMSTEIN, GERMANY
  • 00:14:46.110 --> 00:14:49.060
  • AND OUR MISSION HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED. SO WE'VE GOT A LOT
  • 00:14:49.070 --> 00:14:52.030
  • OF OTHER CASES INVOLVING PERSECUTION. WE'RE GOING TO GET
  • 00:14:52.040 --> 00:14:54.070
  • TO THAT. WE'VE GOT THE GENOCIDE ISSUE THAT IS FRONT AND CENTER
  • 00:14:54.080 --> 00:14:56.290
  • RIGHT NOW. BUT AGAIN, A HUGE THANK YOU TO SO MANY OF YOU THAT
  • 00:14:57.000 --> 00:15:00.070
  • HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR 3 ½, ALMOST 4 YEARS. SOMEONE ASKED
  • 00:15:00.080 --> 00:15:03.090
  • ME, HOW IS ALL THIS GOING TO PLAY OUT? WELL, HE'S BEEN GONE
  • 00:15:03.100 --> 00:15:05.190
  • FROM HIS FAMILY FOR 4 YEARS. I MEAN, THIS IS A DIFFICULT, THESE
  • 00:15:05.200 --> 00:15:09.130
  • TRANSITIONS ARE VERY TOUGH. -WE HAVE A CALL KIND OF RELATED TO
  • 00:15:09.140 --> 00:15:11.270
  • THAT. LET'S GO TO SUSAN FROM CALIFORNIA ON LINE FOUR. SUSAN,
  • 00:15:11.280 --> 00:15:15.050
  • YOU'RE ON THE AIR. -HEY, SUSAN. -FIRST OF ALL, I JUST WANTED TO
  • 00:15:15.060 --> 00:15:18.020
  • SAY I ECHO WHAT MARIA SAID. AND THANK GOD FOR ACLJ. WHAT WOULD
  • 00:15:18.030 --> 00:15:21.170
  • WE DO WITHOUT YOU GUYS? AND I ALSO WANTED TO SAY PRAISE GOD
  • 00:15:21.180 --> 00:15:25.280
  • THAT PASTOR SAEED WAS RELEASED. NOW LET'S PRAY FOR HIM AND HIS
  • 00:15:25.290 --> 00:15:30.010
  • FAMILY AS THEY'VE GONE THROUGH SO MANY DIFFICULT SITUATIONS AND
  • 00:15:30.020 --> 00:15:34.250
  • THEY NEED TO READJUST TO HIM BEING OUT OF PRISON AND ALL HIS
  • 00:15:34.260 --> 00:15:38.270
  • MEDICAL ISSUES AND REINTEGRATING WITH THE FAMILY. -RIGHT. -BUT
  • 00:15:38.280 --> 00:15:42.120
  • WE JUST THANK YOU, THANK GOD SO MUCH FOR WHAT HE DID AND HOW HE
  • 00:15:42.130 --> 00:15:45.260
  • USED ACLJ AND HOW YOU GUYS ARE JUST SO IMPORTANT. -WELL,
  • 00:15:45.270 --> 00:15:50.170
  • SUSAN, THIS WAS A CASE WHERE YOU HAD TO HAVE TENACITY. AND I'M
  • 00:15:50.180 --> 00:15:53.220
  • VERY PROUD OF OUR ENTIRE TEAM WHO WORKED ON THIS CASE FOR
  • 00:15:53.230 --> 00:15:55.170
  • ALMOST 4 YEARS. IT'S HAD A GOOD CONCLUSION. BUT YOU'RE RIGHT TO
  • 00:15:55.180 --> 00:15:59.270
  • PRAY FOR THE FAMILY AND LET ME SAY THIS, THESE ARE VERY, I
  • 00:15:59.280 --> 00:16:03.070
  • MEAN, THERE IS NO ONE ON THIS BROADCAST IN OUR ORBIT, AND I
  • 00:16:03.080 --> 00:16:08.070
  • SUSPECT NO ONE, OF THE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE THAT ARE LISTENING TO
  • 00:16:08.080 --> 00:16:10.260
  • US AND THE 10S OF 1.000S WATCHING US ON FACEBOOK AND
  • 00:16:10.270 --> 00:16:13.220
  • PERISCOPE. I DON'T THINK ANY OF US CAN PUT OURSELVES IN THE
  • 00:16:13.230 --> 00:16:18.200
  • PLACE OF THE HEKMATI FAMILY, THE ABEDINI FAMILY, OR THE REZAIAN
  • 00:16:18.210 --> 00:16:21.210
  • FAMILY ON WHAT THEY'VE GONE THROUGH HERE. -RIGHT. -AND
  • 00:16:21.220 --> 00:16:24.160
  • WHAT THE TRANSITION BACK HOME IS GOING TO BE LIKE. -RIGHT. OUR
  • 00:16:24.170 --> 00:16:28.060
  • JOB WAS TO HELP GET HIM OUT OF PRISON AND FROM THAT POINT ON,
  • 00:16:28.070 --> 00:16:32.240
  • THIS IS NOT LIKE THAT'S THE END OF THE ROAD FOR THE FAMILY.
  • 00:16:32.250 --> 00:16:35.200
  • -THAT'S A BEGINNING. -DEFINITELY KEEP THEM IN YOUR
  • 00:16:35.210 --> 00:16:37.250
  • PRAYERS, BUT FOR US, OUR JOB IS COMPLETE, AS YOU SAID. -YEAH.
  • 00:16:37.260 --> 00:16:40.150
  • -AND NOW CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR THEM. -YEAH, PRAY FOR THEM
  • 00:16:40.160 --> 00:16:43.070
  • BECAUSE THESE TRANSITIONS ARE TOUGH. I MEAN, YOU LOOK AT
  • 00:16:43.080 --> 00:16:45.240
  • SAEED'S SITUATION, HE AND HEKMATI WERE IN THE LONGEST, I
  • 00:16:45.250 --> 00:16:48.240
  • MEAN, SAEED'S BASICALLY BEEN AWAY FROM HIS FAMILY FOR AMOST
  • 00:16:48.250 --> 00:16:50.200
  • HALF A DECADE. I MEAN, THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A MOMENT. SO
  • 00:16:50.210 --> 00:16:54.130
  • LOOK, THIS IS GOING TO TAKE HEALING AND TIME BUT OUR JOB,
  • 00:16:54.140 --> 00:16:57.160
  • AND THIS IS WHERE I WANT TO BE VERY CLEAR, THE ACLJ'S MISSION,
  • 00:16:57.170 --> 00:17:00.200
  • KEEP HIM ALIVE, GET HIM OUT, CASE HAS BEEN CLOSED
  • 00:17:00.210 --> 00:17:03.100
  • SUCCESSFULLY. WE'RE ON TO THE NEXT CASE BUT OBVIOUSLY
  • 00:17:03.110 --> 00:17:05.140
  • REJOICING IN THE VICTORIES HERE. MORE CALLS. MORE COMMENTS.
  • 00:17:05.150 --> 00:17:07.220
  • -PEOPLE ARE ASKING ABOUT ASIA BIBI AND SOME OF THE OTHER CASES
  • 00:17:07.230 --> 00:17:10.120
  • WE'VE BROUGHT UP RANDOMLY THROUGHOUT TODAY'S SHOW. -YEAH,
  • 00:17:10.130 --> 00:17:13.240
  • SO ASIA BIBI'S CASE IS ONGOING. THAN, LET'S TALK ABOUT HOW OUR
  • 00:17:13.250 --> 00:17:17.160
  • ADVOCACY HASN'T, AND WE'VE BEEN DOING MULTIPLE PARTY ADVOCACY
  • 00:17:17.170 --> 00:17:20.160
  • INCLUDING THE SUDANESE THAT WERE RELEASED, THE 2 PASTORS; WE GOT
  • 00:17:20.170 --> 00:17:23.030
  • THAT RELEASE. IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS WE HAD ANOTHER IRANIAN
  • 00:17:23.040 --> 00:17:25.290
  • PASTOR'S CASE WE'VE BEEN ADVOCATING FOR. HE WAS RELEASED.
  • 00:17:26.000 --> 00:17:29.100
  • IT DIDN'T GET MUCH FANFARE BUT YOU'VE GOT A TEAM, THAN, WHEN
  • 00:17:29.110 --> 00:17:31.290
  • YOU'RE DEALING WITH THIS IN WASHINGTON, WE'RE WORKING ON
  • 00:17:32.000 --> 00:17:33.220
  • THIS ALL THE TIME, ALL OVER THE GLOBE. -THIS IS REALLY THE
  • 00:17:33.230 --> 00:17:36.110
  • NEXUS THERE, JAY. I MEAN, THERE ARE ALWAYS MORE OF THESE CASES.
  • 00:17:36.120 --> 00:17:38.240
  • I MEAN, IT'S PART OF THE REASON THAT SAEED ABEDINI'S CASE
  • 00:17:38.250 --> 00:17:40.280
  • RESOLVED FAVORABLY IS BECAUSE WE GOT OUT THERE. WE TOLD THE
  • 00:17:40.290 --> 00:17:43.260
  • STORIES AND WE RAISED HIS PROFILE TO A POINT WHERE IT
  • 00:17:43.270 --> 00:17:46.160
  • WASN'T SECRET AND IRAN COULDN'T DEAL WITH HIM IN PRIVATE. WE ARE
  • 00:17:46.170 --> 00:17:49.180
  • DOING THE SAME THING ON A NUMBER OF OTHER CASES. I MEAN, YOU
  • 00:17:49.190 --> 00:17:52.120
  • MENTIONED ASIA BIBI. THERE ARE OTHER NAMES THAT PEOPLE WILL
  • 00:17:52.130 --> 00:17:54.280
  • KNOW. YOUCEF NADARKHANI WAS SUCCESSFUL. PEOPLE KNOW THE NAME
  • 00:17:54.290 --> 00:17:58.270
  • MIRIAM IBRAHIM. -SUCCESSFUL CASES. -THERE ARE OTHERS THAT
  • 00:17:58.280 --> 00:18:01.220
  • ARE NOT NAMES, JAY. AND THERE IS A STRATEGIC REASON FOR THAT. WE
  • 00:18:01.230 --> 00:18:06.000
  • HAVE TO CONSTANTLY EVALUATE THESE CASES AND DECIDE WHICH
  • 00:18:06.010 --> 00:18:08.140
  • ONES TO GO PUBLIC WITH. IT'S A DELICATE BALANCE. BUT THAT IS
  • 00:18:08.150 --> 00:18:12.030
  • REALLY OUR JOB. THE LAST CALLER MENTIONED PRAYER. THAT NEEDS TO
  • 00:18:12.040 --> 00:18:15.020
  • CONTINUE. BUT OUR JOB IS TO PUSH THE LEGAL CASE, THE DIPLOMATIC
  • 00:18:15.030 --> 00:18:18.140
  • CASE. WE'LL DO IT HERE AND WE'LL DO IT AROUND THE WORLD. -AND
  • 00:18:18.150 --> 00:18:20.280
  • LITERALLY AROUND THE GLOBE AS WE DO IT. LET'S TAKE ANOTHER CALL
  • 00:18:20.290 --> 00:18:23.070
  • BEFORE THE BREAK HERE. AND AN INTERESTING COMMENT ABOUT THEIR
  • 00:18:23.080 --> 00:18:25.000
  • HEALTH, I'LL TALK ABOUT THAT IN A MOMENT. -YEAH, A LOT OF
  • 00:18:25.010 --> 00:18:27.020
  • PEOPLE ARE ASKING ABOUT THAT. -SHOULD WE DO THAT NOW? -YEAH,
  • 00:18:27.030 --> 00:18:29.180
  • WHY DON'T WE? PEOPLE ARE ASKING. -ALRIGHT, YEAH, SO ON ALL THREE
  • 00:18:29.190 --> 00:18:33.220
  • OF THEM. SO THEY'RE BEING EVALUATED. LOOK, THEY WERE IN AN
  • 00:18:33.230 --> 00:18:36.100
  • IRANIAN PRISON, SOME FOR 18 MONTHS IN JASON REZAIAN'S CASE,
  • 00:18:36.110 --> 00:18:38.220
  • 4 YEARS FOR AMIR HEKMATI, OVER 3 ½ YEARS, ALMOST 4 YEARS FOR
  • 00:18:38.230 --> 00:18:43.200
  • SAEED ABEDINI. SO THEIR HEALTH IS OF A CONSEQUENCE. IT IS A
  • 00:18:43.210 --> 00:18:48.290
  • SIGNIFICANT ISSUE. THEY ARE BEING EVALUATED IN THE HOSPITAL
  • 00:18:49.000 --> 00:18:53.070
  • IN GERMANY. PEOPLE ARE SAYING ARE THEY IN A ROOM. THEY ARE IN
  • 00:18:53.080 --> 00:18:55.110
  • HOSPITAL ROOMS AS OF RIGHT NOW; LAST WE HEARD. SO THEY'RE IN
  • 00:18:55.120 --> 00:18:58.260
  • HOSPITAL ROOMS BEING EVALUATED FOR MEDICAL NEEDS. WE KNOW THAT
  • 00:18:58.270 --> 00:19:02.090
  • ALL 3 OF THEM NEEDED MEDICAL CARE. THEY WEREN'T GETTING IT,
  • 00:19:02.100 --> 00:19:05.020
  • OBVIOUSLY, BUT THAT'S BEING WORKED ON NOW. AND IT COULD BE
  • 00:19:05.030 --> 00:19:08.140
  • DAYS, IT COULD BE WEEKS. WE DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT.
  • 00:19:08.150 --> 00:19:10.260
  • -ALRIGHT, I THINK WE SHOULD TAKE ANOTHER CALL BEFORE WE GO
  • 00:19:10.270 --> 00:19:13.050
  • TO BREAK. LET'S GO TO MARY ELLEN, WHO'S CALLING FROM
  • 00:19:13.060 --> 00:19:15.110
  • CHICAGO ON LINE FIVE. MARY ELLEN, WELCOME TO JAY SEKULOW
  • 00:19:15.120 --> 00:19:17.180
  • LIVE. -HI. BEFORE MY QUICK QUESTION I JUST WANT TO GIVE GOD
  • 00:19:17.190 --> 00:19:20.050
  • THE GLORY AND THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR WORK. EVEN GOING TO THE
  • 00:19:20.060 --> 00:19:23.100
  • U.N. WITH NAGHMEH. THAT WAS AWESOME. -BY THE WAY, MARY
  • 00:19:23.110 --> 00:19:27.050
  • ELLEN, NOT ONLY DID WE GO TO THE U.N. WITH NAGHMEH, WE HAD OUR
  • 00:19:27.060 --> 00:19:30.070
  • OFFICES IN AFRICA MAKE STATEMENTS AT THE UNITED
  • 00:19:30.080 --> 00:19:33.120
  • NATIONS. WE HAD OUR OFFICES IN STRASBOURG, FRANCE MAKE
  • 00:19:33.130 --> 00:19:36.200
  • STATEMENTS TO THE UNITED NATIONS. THAN'S BEEN THERE.
  • 00:19:36.210 --> 00:19:38.250
  • JORDAN'S BEEN THERE. I MEAN, IT'S BEEN A BIG EFFORT. GO
  • 00:19:38.260 --> 00:19:41.170
  • AHEAD. -THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AND WE CONTINUE PRAYING FOR
  • 00:19:41.180 --> 00:19:45.290
  • THEM. MY QUESTION IS DO WE KNOW ABOUT THE WOMAN WHO WAS LEFT
  • 00:19:46.000 --> 00:19:50.130
  • BEHIND, THE WIFE OF ONE OF THE PRISONERS, AND ALSO WHY THE SWAP
  • 00:19:50.140 --> 00:19:56.080
  • OF 7 VERSUS OUR 4 OR 5. DO WE KNOW ANYTHING ON THAT? -7
  • 00:19:56.090 --> 00:19:59.270
  • VERSUS 4 OR 5. FIRST OF ALL, I THINK IT'S MORE THAN 5 ARE GOING
  • 00:19:59.280 --> 00:20:03.290
  • TO BE RELEASED. I THINK THIS IS AN ONGOING SITUATION. REZAIAN'S
  • 00:20:04.000 --> 00:20:06.240
  • WIFE, JASON REZAIAN'S WIFE DID COME HOME WITH HIM. THERE WAS A
  • 00:20:06.250 --> 00:20:10.020
  • QUESTION OF REZAIAN'S MOTHER, WHETHER SHE WAS GOING TO COME
  • 00:20:10.030 --> 00:20:12.290
  • HOME OR NOT, SHE'S IRANIAN, WHETHER SHE WAS GOING TO LEAVE.
  • 00:20:13.000 --> 00:20:16.210
  • I DON'T KNOW THE STATUS OF THAT. THE 4, OUR 4, WERE, OF COURSE,
  • 00:20:16.220 --> 00:20:20.200
  • UNJUSTLY DETAINED. THE 7 THAT WERE RELEASED EITHER HAD THEIR
  • 00:20:20.210 --> 00:20:24.000
  • SENTENCES COMMUTED, THEY WERE ALREADY CONVICTED OR CHARGES
  • 00:20:24.010 --> 00:20:26.000
  • DROPPED. THEY WERE CHARGES FOR DOING BUSINESS WITH IRAN; NOT
  • 00:20:26.010 --> 00:20:29.160
  • PER SE TERRORISM WITH IRAN. THEY WEREN'T TERRORISTS THAT WERE
  • 00:20:29.170 --> 00:20:32.220
  • RELEASED. AGAIN, THAT'S JUST PART OF, LISTEN, THESE SWAPS
  • 00:20:32.230 --> 00:20:35.110
  • HAPPEN ALL THE TIME. THIS IS PART OF MILITARY EXERCISE. AND
  • 00:20:35.120 --> 00:20:39.040
  • HAVE WE BEEN AT WAR WITH IRAN? MAYBE LIKE A COLD WAR, BUT YEAH,
  • 00:20:39.050 --> 00:20:43.150
  • AND I THINK ARE THE RELATIONSHIPS BETTER? WHO KNOWS?
  • 00:20:43.160 --> 00:20:46.200
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I KNOW? 4 AMERICANS ARE OUT. LET'S GO
  • 00:20:46.210 --> 00:20:48.250
