    The Tehran hostages’ endless siege: A quest for compensation and closure - The Washington Post

    "The remaining hostages — 13 of the 52 have died — are keenly aware that they can’t recover lost time, so they are looking with increasing urgency for another kind of restitution. They have turned to Congress in a bid for compensation for their captivity — for solitary confinement and mock firing squads, for beatings with rubber hoses and being hung, like laundry, over open elevator shafts, or run, blindfolded, into trees. And for the toll all this took on their families."

    As Les Carpenter pointed out a while back, they've already received a golden ticket to MLB games. What more do they want?

    They had an Oscar-winning movie made about them.

    Enough is enough!

    I thought the movie (at least the one I'm thinking of) was about those who were able to get out of Iran and was therefore not about the actual hostages.
