Admin Silent on Meraim Ibrahim
Why no public outcry?
Terence Jeffrey: “Meriam Ibrahim sits shackled in the cell in the Omdurman Federal Women’s Prison in Sudan that she shares with her two babies, Martin and Maya. This is the family of an American citizen – being persecuted for their Christian faith by a foreign government. … What has President Barack Obama personally said about the plight of U.S. citizen’s family? So far, nothing. What has Secretary of State John Kerry personally said? So far, nothing. … Perhaps the administration has been working intensely behind the scenes to free this family and is wary of saying something publicly that would hurt rather than help the cause. That would be understandable. Or perhaps working out the deal to free five Taliban prisoners was more important to this administration than working to free the family of an American citizen imprisoned because they are Christians.”
