National security adviser: US has begun communicating with Iran over hostages

Source: The Hill

National security adviser Jake Sullivan on Sunday said the Biden administration has begun discussions with Iran regarding the American hostages the Islamic Republic currently holds.

CBS's "Face the Nation," host Margaret Brennan asked Sullivan if hostage negotiations had begun, noting that at least five American hostages are being held in Iran.

"We intend to very directly communicate with the Iranians about the complete and utter outrage, the humanitarian catastrophe that is the unjust, unlawful detention of American citizens in Iran," Sullivan said.

"We have begun to communicate with the Iranians on this issue, yes," Sullivan continued. "And we will continue to do so as we go forward. And our strong message to the Iranians will be that it- we will not accept a long-term proposition where they continue to hold Americans in an unjust and unlawful manner. It will be a significant priority of this administration to get those Americans safely back home."

1. Hostages?

I thought they all were released in 1980.

Who is being held by Iran?

2. There have been several groups seized by Iran over the years.

Usually journalists, I believe. Trump probably ignored the situation. He figured eventually he would nuke the entire country and no one would remember that we had people there.
