I am grateful to FBI for foiling the Islamic Republic of Iran's Intelligence Ministry's plot to kidnap me. This plot was orchestrated under Rouhani.
This is the regime that kidnapped & executed Ruhollah Zam. They've also kidnapped and jailed Jamshid Sharmahd and many others pic.twitter.com/HUefdEbiil

Katie Pavlich had this to say:
The Iranians planned to kidnap an American citizen, on U.S. soil, while the Biden administration was/still is negotiating the Iran nuclear deal. Wow. https://t.co/RQB3jfxMFp

Unfortunately, we can’t say we’re very surprised.
This is extremely concerning. This was on American soil. How can activists against this oppressive regime feel safe?! The Iranian regime is carrying out its terrorist behavior in the US. @POTUS @FBI @WhiteHouse https://t.co/M6RJLbNap4

If Iran’s lucky they might even get another couple pallets of cash out of it.
