Iranian Hostage Crisis

America Held Hostage

Last week, Sen Jim Risch (R-ID) released a report with a somewhat different accounting of the state of our current hostage crisis.  His report estimates that 15,000 Americans were left behind when we precipitously fled from Afghanistan.  He further estimates that since our departure, 6,000 of those Americans have been rescued by private organizations.  Let that sink in.
