Many of you have written letters to former Marine Sergeant Amir Hekmati’s family via http://www.freeamir.org and I appreciate that.
I bring it up again because today is the one year anniversary of Amir’s incarceration by the Iranian government. In that time he has been convicted, sentenced to death, and granted a new trial.
Please keep him and his family in mind today, as this milestone is sure to be painful for them.
I refer you to this article at Kotaku highlighting the latest US entreaty for his release. Kotaku, a game development blog, is to be commended for being one of the leading voices on the web, maintaining coverage of this when other, more traditional, news sources have seemed to lose interest.
Thanks Kotaku, and thanks to all of you keeping Amir in mind.
