Re: Roxana Saberi

This report quoting Roxana Saberi’s father is ominous:

“She is very, very weak and frail … she is in a bad condition. She can hardly stand up,” he told Reuters. “I’m worried about her health. I’m worried about her life.”

[. . .]

“She said that she has started a hunger strike and this is the fifth day and that she will continue until she is free. I tried to tell her that this can be dangerous, but she didn’t give me any time to protest,” her father, Reza Saberi, told The Associated Press.

To repeat, Saberi is an American citizen. While “engaging” Iran and glad-handing Hugo Chavez the president would do well to keep in mind Saberi and non-Americans in similar situations whose courage demands our respect and support.
