While U.S. President Barack Obama strives to make a Nuclear deal with The Islamic Republic of Iran U.S. Marine Veteran Amir Hekmati  remains unjustly incarcerated in an Iranian prison.

Hekmati, who was falsely accused and imprisoned while visiting his grandmother in Iran wrote a letter to the POTUS THREE MONTHS ago (in December) - making a desperate appeal not to forget him -but to work on procuring his freedom independent of any nuclear deal:

From The Washington Post:
"Hekmati, who served as an infantryman from 2001 to 2005, says in the letter that his imprisonment has included time in solitary confinement. He is deeply concerned that his release is tied to U.S. negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program.“I ask that you not forget me, Mr. President,” Hekmati said. “I understand there will be additional dialogue this week on the nuclear subject. I ask that you make it clear that my case is unrelated and should be resolved independent of your talks. I ask that your team impress on Iranian officials that more than three years (length of incarceration) without resolution is simply too long.”
Although the courageous Veteran longs for the U.S. Government to effectively free him from his horrific ordeal in Iranian prison - he does not want to gain it by being part of a nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic.
