An American-Iranian dual national imprisoned in Tehran ended a seven-day hunger strike on Monday, saying he had lost 10 pounds but felt strengthened in his resolve to fight for the release of American prisoners. “I went on a hunger strike because I learned the hard way that American presidents tend to rely more on their political thermometer than their moral compass when deciding whether or not to enter into a prisoner deal with Iran,” he said.
