Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian arrested in Iran

Iranian government undermines its international image by arresting a good reporter like Jason Rezaian. Arresting reporters like Rezaian reveals how hardliners are still in control of the intelligence apparatus in Iran.  He went to Iran on his own, and has provided one of the most insightful coverage of Iranian politics, society and economy.  Hopefully,   President Rouhani can use his influence to rectify the situation.
