The hikers' message to America

On the celebrated Hikers, thankfully just freed from Iran. [I was among those who campaigned for their release, from the early stages, partly because I'm a friend of a friend of one of them.]  Shane's first public statement was "... We sincerely hope for freedom for other political prisoners and other unjustly imprisoned people in America and Iran."   BBC showed it, but ABC World News (unsurprisingly) cut it off, mid-sentence, right before that part.
