axis of evil finger puppet set

We now have another member of the “axis of evil” kidnapping Americans. What’s notable about both these cases is the lack of response from the Obama administration

Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said in a report on Saturday that Pae Jun Ho, who entered North Korea as a tourist on November 3, has admitted to the charges. “The preliminary inquiry into crimes committed by American citizen Pae Jun-Ho closed,” the KCNA said. “In the process of investigation he admitted that he committed crimes aimed to topple the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) with hostility toward it,” the report added. The report also said that crimes committed by Pae, identified in the US as Kenneth Bae , “were proved by evidence.” KCNA, however, did not provide any information on the exact date of trial. The United States has so far not publicly commented on the latest development.

Saeed Abedini, a Christian convent who is a naturalized U.S. citizen, is in an Iranian prison, convicted of threatening national security with church work. A movement to free him is gaining momentum.

Efforts to win the release of an American pastor held in a notorious Iranian prison got a boost from comments by Secretary of State John Kerry that gave a nod to U.S. allies to quietly intervene, the pastor’s wife and supporters say.

Saeed Abedini, 32, a native of Iran who became a naturalized American citizen in 2010, is serving an eight-year sentence. Iranian authorities said he threatened the country’s national security by helping to found “house churches” for evangelical Christians in Iran, said Jordan Sekulow,executive director of the American Center for Law and Justice, which represents Abedini’s wife, Naghmeh.
