Political bargaining power? Nah... remember America's official stance:
"We will not negotiate with terrorists..."
It wouldn't be the first time that America sat by and let it happen...
This is purely meant as a media spectacle to ramp-up the pressure for a war with Iran.
Here we go again...
And this time it won't just be a country filled with AK's and RPGs...
Sigh... time to move to Switzerland...

Of course, making a person "disappear" without warning and locking them away indefinitely without charges and being tortured on a daily basis is much better. This guy appears to have at least had a trial.

Killing just because someone believes differently has its origins with you and yours as well.
Despite Iran could have killed him in a desert without a trial , it wasn't done that way.

So having spent 10 years training to be a super-duper Zionist spy he enters Iran, is "immediately" detained thanks to the work of righteous Iran's mighty intelligence services and then he calmly confesses on camera to crimes that carry the death penalty. You can see the 10 years of preparation in this simply brilliant cover story:
"In this mission I was fooled by the CIA and although I had entered Iran with a mission to infiltrate in the Islamic Republic of Iran's intelligence systems and to turn into a new source for the CIA, I didn't want to hit a blow to Iran," Mirzayee Hekmati said.
