President Obama bristled on Wednesday when CBS News correspondent Major Garrett asked him why he was “content” to leave four Americans in Iran on “trumped-up charges,” instead of making the nuclear deal contingent on their release.
“The notion that I am content as I celebrate with American citizens languishing in Iranian jails, Major — that’s nonsense, and you should know better. I’ve met with the families of some of those folks. Nobody’s content. And our diplomats and our teams are working diligently to try to get them out.
