"The lawyer for an Iranian-American reporter who was jailed on spying charges said she will be released Monday after a court reduced the sentence."---
Happy Monday! Amazing what happens when you use diplomacy instead of aggression. This is a very positive sign, and may be an extended hand for which the U.S. has the opportunity to demonstrate that things have changed. It's unfortunate that she would need to leave Iran, but at least she is spared from a prison term. I hope this leads people to 1.) be more hopeful for the current administration and the U.S. and 2.) see Iran for the diverse, multifaceted nation that it is. It was never justified for the Bush administration to paint such a black and white picture of the world.
