Iran:Get me out of Here

Omid Memarian talks about jailed American-Iranian scholar,Hale Esfandiari. Recent just a few days after Haleh Esfandiari, in solitary confinement for three months without any contact with her attorney or family, appeared gaunt and frail on television, analyzing “velvet revolutions,” Shirin Ebadi,her lawyer, told me that when Ms. Esfandiari called her mother on the telephone the next day, she told her she was tired and didn’t know what else to do. Esfandiari told her 93-year old mother: “Get me out of here.”
