New Iranian president among 1979 captors: hostages

There's just something about this story that has the sound of another inflammatory set-up by the hawks....something that is being pushed out on the public to justify some kind of unusually agressive stance taken by the US administration, military or otherwise, against the new leader. I hope I'm wrong, but the track history of the US is clear about this kind of thing. I think it would be prudent to check the backgrounds of the persons making the claims. Check to see how involved in politiics or the intelligence services they are.
