Former members of the Obama administration have said for years that the crowning achievement of their eight years was the Iran Nuclear Deal — hostages who were actually in Iran, however, were left out of the negotiations and feel a bit differently.

Nizar Zakka, a Lebanese national, was detained in Iran from 2015 to 2019. He was accused of spying for the United States, as reported by the Free Beacon.

Zakka took personal offense to Biden’s tweet that said, “Mohamed Amashah is finally home after 486 days in Egyptian prison for holding a protest sign. Arresting, torturing, and exiling activists like Sarah Hegazy and Mohamed Soltan or threatening their families is unacceptable. No more blank checks for Trump’s ‘favorite dictator.'”

Zakka’s tweet slammed Biden for not including the freeing of American hostages as part of the Iran Nuclear Deal.

Biden was referring to the Trump administration’s close relationship with President of Egypt Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. He was speaking specifically about Mohamed Amashah — an Iranian-American medical student who was recently released from Iranian prison after over a year.

Amashah was arrested in March 2019 for protesting in Iran and holding a sign that read “Freedom for all prisoners” — he was charged with misusing social media and aiding a terrorist organization.

Putin has said in recent years that Finland is considered friendly so long as they do not join NATO. Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö confirmed Sunday he has applied for NATO membership.

MetroUK tweeted chilling video and reported the following:

Russia has started moving nuclear-capable missiles towards its border with Finland hours after Moscow vowed not to tolerate Helsinki’s plans to join Nato.

The Kremlin issued a chilling warning that plans for both Finland and Sweden to sign up to the Atlantic alliance were a ‘grave mistake with far reaching consequences’.

Russian deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said: ‘They should have no illusions that we will simply put up with it,’ and insisted ‘the general level of military tension will rise’.

The video was reportedly taken on a road leading to Vyborg, around 24 miles from the Finnish border, showing the deployment of mobile Iskander missiles.

“Seven launchers are thought to be en route according to commentary on a dash cam video broadcast by Russian media.”

A person on the video can be heard saying: ‘As soon as the president of Finland said they were joining Nato, a whole division of Iskanders, seven of them is moving towards Vyborg.

‘Looks like a new military unit is about to be formed in Vyborg or the region.’
