After finishing his comedy bit at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, President Obama took a serious turn, pledging that “we will not rest” until Washington Post Tehran bureau chief Jason Rezaian, imprisoned in Iran since July 2014, is returned to his family. And when President Obama says he will not rest — well, just look at his tireless efforts to free U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi from a Mexican prison.

Obama says he "will not rest" until Iran releases WaPo's Jason Rezaian. Why not make release of all journalists condition of nuke deal?
