    Saeed Abedini has finally been freed.

    The Iranian-American pastor from Idaho, held for more than three years, wasexchanged as part of a prisoner swap in which Iran released four people and the United States released seven.

    Naghmeh Abedini advocates for her husband.

    "It is confirmed," his wife Naghmehannounced on Twitter. "Saeed is released from Iranian prison."

    “This has been an answer to prayer,” she said in a press release from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), one of Abedini's leading advocates. “This is a critical time for me and my family. We look forward to Saeed's return and want to thank the millions of people who have stood with us in prayer during this most difficult time.”

    Glad that he is free but I don't understand giving Iran back the money held since Carter and I don't understand why the USA paid interest. It seems as if the criminal Iranians won. I don't know if Obama is Shiite or Sunni, do you?
