[VIDEO] Naghmeh Abedini: I never thought I’d have to battle my own government for my husband’s freedom

Naghmeh Abedini testified before Congress this morning and blasted the Obama administration for doing nothing to secure the release of her husband during their recent Iranian talks:

When I spoke in front of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission in March of this year, I had anticipated that I would battle the Iranian government for my husband’s freedom. I never anticipated that I would also have to battle my own government and that the journey would become even much more difficult than it had been. My husband is suffering because he’s a Christian. He’s suffering because he’s an American. Yet his own government did not fight for him when his captors were across the table from them.
