Former Iranian prisoner accuses Joe Biden of ‘leaving him behind’ in Tehran

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has attempted to attack President Trump over his cooperation with Egyptian leader Al-Sisi, but his plan just blew up in his face.

Nizar Zakka, a Lebanese national imprisoned by Iran from 2015 to 2019 on charges that he was a spy for the United States, accused Biden on Tuesday of “leaving him behind” in order to get the Iran nuclear deal done.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

Zakka was referring to the Obama administration’s decision to refrain from demanding that Iran release hostages during sensitive diplomatic talks that eventually led to the nuclear agreement.

The former administration was criticized for avoiding thorny topics like hostages as part of its efforts to court the Islamic Republic.

Zakka’s accusation was prompted by a tweet Biden published on Sunday accusing Trump of doing the exact same thing to an Egyptian-American medical student that had been imprisoned for over a year in Egypt for protesting.

“Mohamed Amashah is finally home after 486 days in an 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 replied to Biden’s tweet: “With all due respect Mr. Biden, I don’t think you are well-positioned to comment on this subject. I never comment on politics but this one was too much. You left us behind in Iran. Remember? Tehran?”

According to reports, Zakka was “psychologically tortured and subjected to inhumane and degrading treatment” during his lengthy imprisonment in Iran.

The Washington Examiner reported in 2016 — a year after Zakka was imprisoned — that one Obama administration official called for action to obtain Zakka’s freedom, but said that the most that then-Secretary of State John Kerry was able to do for Zakka was “[raise] the cases of detained and missing U.S. citizens anytime he [meets] with Iranian officials.”

  1. Just like Democrats to leave someone behind. What a bunch of cowards the Obama’s and the Biden’s are. They make me sick!

    1. Yes totally agree Alan! The Dems or should I say communists could care LESS about anyone. They only want power, and if they win in Nov. we don’t stand a chance, its game over! We all have to rally together and get out and vote to save our country!

    2. Better be careful…..they might lay down and have tantrums or need a safe space because you hurt their feelings.

    3. Alan, totally agree with you! Apparently Biden’s brain is too small to realize that there are people out there who know the truth and won’t be silenced!

    4. The Obama/ Biden administration was a total disgrace, it was the first time in the history of the Country, that an outgoing President spied on an incoming President. The Obama administration, the CIA, and Comey’s corrupted FBI all illeglly spied on Trump, his family, and the Trump Tower, all ahead of the 2016 Presidential election, and into his first years in office.This is a felony.

    5. Pathetic and sad. We have the most powerful country in the world and the Obama Administration did nothing to bring our people home. They are worse than cowards. They are criminals.

    6. We can never hope to find water from a rock, thus, we could never hope to find substance from anyone who is Substance-Less!

    7. Plus, all they seem to do is criticize and find fault with anyone who isn’t a democrat. I am so sick of it that I went to the registration office and changed from Independent to Republican! No more voting for democrats! They didn’t earn my vote!

    8. I’ve been Democrat for 25+ years and there is no way in H3ll I’m going to vote for Biden. Trump all the way. In California where I reside, Democrats they brought nothing but misery. 300% more rent, gas, car tax, property tax increase. Did I say I was born in Iran? Trump, please send all to mullahs to H3ll.

  2. President trump has been getting our hostages back and cleaning up the weak Biden policies vote red Trump 2020 !!! Red tidal Wave!!!

    1. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸TRUMP 2020!!!

    2. If we want to keep our freedom, vote Red across the board. Bernie Sanders has been pushing Joe Biden to keep going more and more left. Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, wants the Bernie Sanders supporters to vote for Joe Biden.

  3. Just how many members of the corrupt Obama administration’s eight years in office, need to be held accountable for their cowardice and treasonous actions while in their government roles ?

    1. too many to count!!!!!!! believe in Trump.. vote all red in november. Obama and Biden and Clinton should be investigated for treason, and Benghazi debacle. Joe should be made to take medical exam for competence before November, and the results published, not skewed. God help us all if the demorats win the Whitehouse and both sections of house and senate. glad to see the police unions pulled their support of gropey Joe.

      1. STRAIGHT GOP!!!! or we will lose our country. TRUMP 2020
        remember we have hollyweirdians, academia, congress, the jackazz party, the MSM , the high tecks all rooting for the left! So lets VOTE STRAIGHT GOP!

    2. Everyone of the traitors, criminals and that includes Obama , Biden and anyone whether they were part of his corrupt admin or just a fringe hanger-oner!

    3. If black people knew what Obama really did for them, the KKK wouldn’t need to hang him, black people would.

  4. Was it for the big dog whistle for a grand achievement of Ovomit or was there a sack of money Biden was getting?

      1. I would have to agree with you on the bag of money. I’m a firm believer that Money can buy you anything or anyone if the price is right.

    1. I guess you are afraid of the actual truth and prefer the brainwashing you get through CNN & MSNBC. Sad you are so closed minded and that you have so much hate.

      1. GTLC= Group Think Losers Club, People that group think can’t think for themselves, so they follow blindly where ever their blind leader goes.

    2. What’s the matter? Hearing how evil your democrats are bothers you, good means there may be hope for you, if you dig, you will find a whole bunch more!

    3. The only bull I read is you. You wouldn’t be saying that, if you would’ve been the one in prison

    4. you can run but you can’t hide from the truth. Sooner or later you sill realize you have been brainwashed by the libs.

    5. Do you even know what ‘bull’ is? Don’t think so, you are a fool if you think Trump is the enemy, please do tell one thing Biden has done positive for this country in the 40+ years he has been in politics!

    6. It’s nice to have a news format that actually and truthfully reports on President Trump’s numerous POSITIVE successes, unlike the MONOPOLY of NEGATIVE/FAKE mews SPEWED by most “news” networks.

      Obviously those that only watch the FAKE news networks and believe everything that is SPEWED without question, are FALSELY led down a path of hate and dissent.

    7. So Elsie, the truth hurts, eh? Why are you on this site anyway? Get off and find another site, one that agrees with your totally skewed vision of reality. Won’t miss you.

    8. Elsie, wake up if you can’t see the facts you need a mental exam. You’ll see when Durham report comes out in a month.

    9. ELSIE WHY THE TRUTH HURTS. YOUR BOY BIDEN AND HIS COMMUNIST PARTY ARE ALL CORRUPT. DONT YOU SEE WHATS HAPPENING IN OUR COUNTRY.THESE PROTESTERS AND DEMO RAT MAYORS AND DEMO GOVERNORS ARE GETTING PAID TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY.HATING THE POLICE HATING THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HATING OUR COUNTRY.WAKE UP ELSIE IF BIDEN COMES IN WE WILL HAVE NO MORE AMERICA IT WILL BE VENASWELLA.YOU MY FRIEND WILL BE IN A BREAD LINE,NO MORE SS NOTHINGLEFT.SO WAKE UP VOTE FOR TRUMP FOR CAPITALISM NOT COMMUNIST.GOD HELP YOU PEOPLE THAT YOUR BRAIN IS DAMAGE CANT SEE WHATS HAPPENING TODAY IN OUR COUNTRY.THEY WILL BE TELLING YOU AND ME WHAT WE HAVE TO DO.GOD BLESS AMERICA AND GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP VOTE TRUMP IN 2020.

    10. You are brainwashed. Just check the records. You may not like him but he is doing a fantastic job for this country. What can you possibly like about Biden?

    11. Elsie, You need to do some research and see the evidence for yourself. The democrats have done nothing but cause division in this country. They are lying about President Trump to put the focus on him and keep the attention off themselves and all their corruption. They are a communist group of people who hate America and the American people. They are supporting and financing the riots and antifa group. George Soro’s is also helping finance the unrest in our country. People better wake up before it’s to late. OUR FREEDOMS ARE BEING TAKEN AWAY. DON’T CLOSE YOUR MIND AND YOUR EYES TO WHAT IS GOING ON IN OUR COUNTRY.
      PEOPLE BETTER VOTE TRUMP AND PENCE 2020

  5. Looks like Joe PERVERT Biden is not going to see the inside of the WHITE HOUSE anytime soon. The ONLY time that Joey boy will see the inside of the WHITE HOUSE again his in his dreams or to clean the TOILETS after Pres.Trump was through doing a biden dump for the time being.

    1. only thing biden will see that is white is the straight-jacket they wrap him up in, and the institution he is sent to.

  6. Well this pretty much says all you need to know about Biden and his abilities to do anything as a politician or a leader in the USA!

  7. Yep , as usual , biden & the rest of the organized crime , treasonous dems , accuse Trump of all the crimes THEY DO on a regular basis !

  8. What is that, …your sin’s will find you out? Sin is a funny thing, it eventually comes back and bites you. It has no color or gender or if you’re rich or poor, it just show’s you and others just exactly who and what you are, especially those sins of magnitude. We all sin and can be forgiven, but when you have learned nothing from them and keep on doing nothing to change them, is when you know longer think sin is bad and you end up with a reprobate mind. Those are the kind of minds that don’t make good leaders, because one is so wrapped up in ones self to care about others.

  9. Obama was as corrupt as they come and Biden went along with it, so is he, his whole family is proof of that.

    1. Obama wants sleepy Joe to win so he can be in his back pocket and help him destroy America more than they already have.

  10. Don’t trust Biden his speeches sound ok but he’s using prepared questions from hand picked questioners and a teleprompter then there is the fact that he has dementia.Don’t believe me check it out for yourself. Don’t put a man in the white house who doesn’t know where he is half the time

  11. Make sure everybody gets out and votes Trump 2020 . The Democrats are going to cheat worse then ever before . Their gathering their dead and illegal friends to come out and vote. We have to get everyone we know to vote .

  12. It should not surprise anyone of the Democrats hypocrisy when it comes to an individuals basic human rights pointed out in the language of the Constitution. They do not acknowledge an unborn baby’s inherent right to life so why would they care about an individual Americans rights who is being held by a rogue country for not agreeing with their positions on the matters of freedom of speech. Basic hypocrisy at it’s best.

    1. The demon-crats are agents of satan… their sins will come back to bite them and I hope all God fearing Americans realize that!! These people are Anti-Christ.. just look at what the all stand for. Remember, Obama’s goal was to transform America into a non Christian Nation. Biden is suppose to finish the job and don’t be fooled!! Obama is behind it all!!

  13. Typical of Biden. He ONLY thinks of Himself and his family. Screw the American people. “What the American people don’t know will not hurt them.” Yet the uneducated Americans will vote for this man with dementia and live in terror. can’t believe people are willing to take a chance on Biden who wants to de fund the police. Seriously? What type of country is Biden going to make for the American people? Our children will never know the America we know if Biden and Bernie are elected.

  14. Oh well
    It’s just like Obama and dumb dumb Biden to leave anyone behind
    The only people that care or think about is themselves
    But that’s what socialist / communist are all about themselves
    How to take everything everyone has for them
    My only hope and prayer is that obama, Biden and all those who was their what house all end up in Chinese conservation camp
    Couldn’t happen to nicer bunch. !!!

  15. What goes around comes around. Do nothing Joe Biden is corrupt & has been his whole life, while getting a government paycheck. He lied for Obama & Hillary. Listen to his speeches. He talks but says nothing. It is all political speak, meaning he is saying things that he does not know about & does not intend to carry out. He is a fake, phony, dishonest, corrupt politician. He will not help the Black community, so listen & vote Trump!!!

  16. People don’t realize that Kerry’s daughter was getting married to the son of a high ranking Iranian official. So that deal was going to happen prisoners or no prisoners. He would of left his own mother behind to get that deal signed

  17. I would disagree with The damercrats in the town I live in, but can’t find any one who claims to be one! Has anybody else noticed that not one thing they say shows any use for our country. I know damn well bashful biden hadn’t he hadn’t been out of his basement. The lieing news people keep saying he made speeches but I’ve not heard one. Starting to believe they are as sinile as he is.

  18. What I have learned these past three years about the dems – they will lie and tell you anything that they think you are wanting to hear in order to get elected. Once elected, their real agenda will be put into place. When are they not lying? When they are dead. When their mouths are closed.

  19. Now let’s all think of how many Americans Obama and Biden rescued while in office. There was Benghazi, no that was when they let Americans be slaughtered, umm……., moving on. Then we have their heroic act of free over 100,000 convicted illegal felons back on our streets to commit more crimes against our citizen, umm… that wasn’t good either, or the billion or so they gave Iran to build their nukes up while Iran cried death to Americans. Not so good either. So just how did they help our citizens out? THEY DIDN’T.

  20. And yes to the article ! There are a lot of people who will vote for Trump even if silence is obvious because of course, while going through these hateful & spooky times I can understand why one may not want to answer this question ! It’s all become so unnerving, I’d say for women mostly, not hard to accept ! They are only thinking of their loved ones, some women stronger than others, but just as set for Trump as they have always been ! CHILDREN answers a woman’s mind & soul every time ! Only a mother would fully understand this ! TRUMP2020

  21. Sorry, my above response above was relating to another article I had read (read so many), but on this article, SPOT ON to all these posts ! Again sorry for my mistake !

  22. MORE and MORE PROOF about BIDEN
    B iggest
    I diot
    D emocrats
    E ver
    N ominated

    Coming out that mSM under advice from the CCP , Soros, Obama mad KOMRADS will iGNORE as Usual ….BUT NOT THE SILENT TRUMP VOTERS !!!!

  23. The last thing that “Joey Paws” Biden, John “Commie” Kerry and Hussein way to do is makes Hussein’s Iranian “buds” mad!! That’s why Hussein made a $150 BILLION DOLLAR GIFT TO IRAN WITH AMERICAN TAXPAYER MONEY! AND DEMOCRATS, WE THE PEOPLE, SAY “ THE DEMOCRAT PARTY, OWES US $150 BILLION DOLLARS FOR OUR TAX MONEY THAT HUSSEIN STOLE AND GAVE TO IRAN COVERTLY WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE OR APPROVAL!

    1. what about the 660million trump gave to his son in laws family –the kushners should trump pay that back to taxpayers

  24. It becomes more clear with every day that passes how utterly corrupt Biden, Obama and the Democrat Party arer

  25. Biden had brain surgery and was told his mind would start to fail him as got older as a result of the surgery. Brain surgeries

    In 1988, Biden suffered two brain aneurysms, one on the right side and one on the left. Each required surgery with high risk of long-term impact on brain functionality.

  26. Obama, with the knowledge of Joe Biden, gifted Iran with 1.5 BILLION Dollars of US Taxpayers money just as he left the White House. Why? This was apparently done without anyone else’s knowledge or consent. Now tell me Obama/Biden are not corrupt.

  27. I would really like to know how much Biden is worth now? He has ALWAYS worked for the US Government. So how did he become a Multi-millionaire at least? I know these positions pay fairly well but not that great!

  28. Our great exalted ones O’Bama/Biden what a great deal they made on NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION O’B gave the IRANIANS a BILLION US DOLLARS DUMB ASS O’B DEMANDED the UNITED STATES have unfettered access inspections IRAN waited his PRESIDENCY out and kept the CASH THANKS OB?
