The Best and the Worst of 2013

The worst moment of 2013 was Obama’s interim nuclear agreement with the Islamic Republic of Iran. The nuclear deal profoundly jeopardizes core security interests of the U.S. and opens nuclear-brinkmanship doors in the volatile Middle East.

The best moment of 2013 was Pastor Eddie Romero’s protest in front of Iran’s notorious Evin Prison in Tehran. He sought the release of four Christians incarcerated for practicing their faith and a human-rights advocate.
