Every day, the Office of Presidential Correspondence sorts through thousands of letters. Every night, President Obama reads 10 [ten] of them. Some people write to share what his decisions mean in their daily lives, to talk about the economy, or to ask a question about a policy. Others just write in to say hello. Each letter is a chance for President Obama to hear directly from folks across the country about the sorts of issues they face every day.”
The White House email went on to say that the ten emails that are selected by his staff are given to the President and he actually dictates a response. Ten each day – that’s 70 per week, right?
FreeAllThree.com is asking you to send a polite, yet firm, email or letter asking him to do EVERYTHING in his power to bring back Saeed Abedini (a Christian Pastor), Amir Hekmati (a former U.S. Marine) and Robert Levinson (a career FBI agent) as part of the current and ongoing negotiations with Iran.
The nuclear talks are scheduled to be concluded by July 20 with a permanent Agreement or they may be informally extended by 2-3 weeks or formally extended for six months. The U.S. cannot be allowed to walk away from the table without resolving the cases of these three hostages! (You can read more about their individual cases by clicking on the tabs above with their names.)
The President is already familiar with the hostages’ names and their circumstances. Briefly however, Mr. Levinson has now been held over 7 years. Amir has been held 3 years as of August 2014 and Pastor Saeed has been in prison nearly two years. Keep your letter brief and respectful if you want to have a chance of your letter being selected for him to read. He can’t read them all, but if thousands are sent about these men who are being wrongly held in Iran, he is bound to read some!

From the White House webpage (www.whitehouse.gov): Tips when Writing the White House
President Obama is committed to creating the most open and accessible administration in American history. That begins with taking comments and questions from you, the public. Here are a few things you can do to make sure your message gets to the White House quickly.
1. If possible, email us! This is the fastest way to get your message to President Obama. (Go to: http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact)
2. If you write a letter, please consider typing it on an 8 1/2 by 11 inch sheet of paper. If you hand-write your letter, please consider using pen and writing as neatly as possible.
3. Please include your return address on your letter as well as your envelope. If you have an email address, please consider including that as well. [Highly recommended to facilitate a reply.]
4. When writing, be sure to include the full address of the White House to make sure your message gets to us as quickly and directly as possible:
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
FreeAllThree note: although emailing is an option, we advocate sending a physical letter as we all know it is very easy to read and forget an email. A letter stands out as being from someone who took the time and made a special effort. Or consider doing both! God bless your efforts.
From January 1-July 4, 2014 there are 184 days or 6 months and 4 days. Iran was given 6 months (180 days) to show good faith regarding their nuclear weapons programs. America must insist that no more billions of US dollars, gold or other resources will be unfrozen and transferred to Iran as a result of further sanctions loosening. Nor should oil exports flow freely to other nations, including Russia that has negotiated a side deal worth $1.5 billion per month known as ‘oil for goods.’ With such a bartering system, Russia would continue to build Iran’s nuclear facilities in exchange for Iranian oil, bypassing the banking system, and then re-selling it on the open market. Finally, the main purpose of the current negotiations, the cessation of Iran’s nuclear weapons program, must be realized and continually verified.
NO MORE BILLIONS OF U.S. DOLLARS TO IRAN AFTER THE JULY, 2014 PAYMENT UNTIL THEY FREE ALL THREE!
