Just as I noted that Fox News has been using the case of Jon Hammar, imprisoned in Mexico on gun charges, as an excuse to attack the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton in particular, Sean Hannity trotted out a new case Wednesday night (12/19/12). This one involves an American pastor imprisoned in Iran. I think we can expect to hear a lot more about this one since it has the "benefit" of including Iran and a Christian martyr. Merry Christmas, indeedy!
Hannity wasted no time using the story to attack Obama. In his introduction, he asked, "Where's the Obama administration, where's the U.N.? Where's the State Department?"
Sekulow likewise got right down to saying, "We have not had State Department help right now." Later, he added, "The Obama administration needs to come out publicly."
Just a coincidence that Fox is digging up these cases all of a sudden, now that Hillary Clinton looks to be the Democratic nominee in 2016?
