Honest Bender: Or his attorney.But, hey, that doesn't grab headlines.Right, liar-mitter?
Science_Guy_3.14159: I hear it's a nice place, the Mediterranean version of Vegas.

Jz4p: I'm certain they will get right on attending to these proceedings.
bingethinker: Tell Iran that until they arrest, sentence and punish the people responsible for the hostage-taking at the embassy in 1980, and various terrorist actions since then, they have no credibility in any legal matter.
