Reader comment on item: Hearing on "Should the United States Do More to Help U.S. Citizens Held against Their Will in Saudi Arabia?"

These are priceless comments which reveal tremendous insights and you delivered it all in a very professional and coherent way. You even took the extra step of getting the correction on the organization discussed.
