The President of the United States is making a big to-do about visiting a prison today for the first time. He wants to bring attention to unfair prison sentencing. He has already commuted the sentences of about 46 drug felons and personally wrote letters to them and/or their families in a show of support and encouragement.
Meanwhile, in Obama's disastrous, destructive and dangerous deal with Iran, the biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, Obama didn't even mention the four US citizens being held by Iran as prisoners (one whose whereabouts are unknown) for made up crimes, including a Christian pastor there to build orphanages yet accused of undermining the Iranian government.
Obama has barely reached out to the families of these men. He did not demand the prisoners' release in exchange for giving Iran free rein to build nuclear weapons thanks to the money they will now have freely flowing into their country because Obama has lifted economic sanctions against them. No word in this Iran deal about the US captives and how their prison sentences are unjust. No comforting phone calls to their families after the deal with the devil was made. Only arrogant displays of self-congratulations as Obama visits convicted felons in US federal prisons.
