Bronco Bama and his administration will get right on this, someday:

BERLIN – Iranian authorities have recently assigned the case of imprisoned American-Iranian Pastor Saeed Abedini to a Tehran judge sanctioned by the European Union for human rights violations.

Jordan Sekulow, the executive director of the Washington-based American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) wrote The Jerusalem Post by email on Thursday saying, “This development underscores our growing concern for Pastor Saeed. In a country that’s hostile to human rights and religious freedom, the news that Pastor Saeed’s case has now been handed over to one of Iran’s most notorious judges is deeply troubling. In a real sense, Pastor Saeed is an American abandoned in Iran.”[More...]

Also, via ACLJ
The life of Pastor Saeed is in grave danger,” said Jordan Sekulow, Executive Director of the ACLJ. “ When you read Pastor Saeed’s own words[pdf..ed], you understand that Iran has absolutely no regard for human rights and religious freedom. And now facing one of Iran’s most notorious judges, Pastor Saeed is in a real sense an American abandoned in Iran. The U.S. State Department has done very little to help this U.S. citizen. We continue to press the Obama Administration to engage this case – to speak out forcefully on Pastor Saeed’s behalf and put pressure on Iran’s allies to free this American. Time is of the essence.”

In a letter released to family members in Tehran today, Pastor Saeed underscores the danger he faces daily:

“This is the process in my life today: one day I am told I will be freed and allowed to see my family and kids on Christmas (which was a lie) and the next day I am told I will hang for my faith in Jesus. One day there are intense pains after beatings in interrogations, the next day they are nice to you and offer you candy,” Pastor Saeed wrote.

The entire letter is available here.

Bronco Bama is too busy trying to figure out how to amend our 2nd Amendment than to deal with a Iranian-American Christian in peril.

2 The State Department is too busy covering it's ass over Benghazi and lying for Hillary Clinton and Obama.

3 Imagine what the apparatchiks of the Obama cabal would be doing if this were a union goon or an illegal immigrant the Iranians held.

4 Saeed ABEDIN? Is he any kin to Huma Abedin? She has an 'inside' track to Hillary, doesn't she?

5 American Christian zealot goes to Iran and stirs shit. American zealot is from Iran so he is fully aware of the danger. American Christian zealot is naturally arrested. American taxpayers are going to end up spending millions and eating a ton of crow because of his stupidity. Some people believe he is a hero. Some believe he is a friggin FOOL to leave his family and do something this stupid. Who knows because of him Iran may negotiate the release of a dozen terrorists who will naturally go back to doing what they always do.
Yea. This guys a true hero. Like those idiots who go hiking in Afghanistan with flowers in their hair.
