Off the Record

Greta: My free advice to Iran - Free our Americans now

By Greta Van Susteren

Let's all go "Off the Record." I have some free advice for Iran. We have all heard Iran loves that nuclear deal it got from President Obama, and the last thing Iran wants is for Congress to block it.

And Congress might do that. Congress has 60 days to make up its mind. And it's no secret the deal is getting a chilly reception on Capitol Hill, not just from Republicans but also from some Democrats. Many are on the fence. They know Iran has a history of sponsoring terrorism and lying.

Yes, Iran is deceitful. Just about everybody knows you don't just trust Iran to keep its word. So here is my tip to Iran: Do you really want this deal? Then release our Christian pastor Saeed Abedini, our Marine, Amir Hekmati, our Washington Post Reporter, Jason Rezaian, and find FBI special agent, Bob Levinson. He is he there someplace. And put all four on a plane right now for home.

On the agreement of President Obama, Iran is not obliged to release the four. But giving these Americans back to us and now, would be a smart, strategic gesture showing what most suspect Iran doesn't have -  good faith.

That just gesture might tip those who are still on the fence. It might tip them over to Iran's side of the deal. So Iran, are you watching Fox News? You should be. Maybe for once you will do the right thing Send our Americans home now. And that's my "Off the Record" comment tonight.
