Secor adds nothing of substance to the matter. She points out a "conspiracy" attitude of the Iranians, and then posits herself a conspiracy theory for the reason behind Jason's detention.

Here's hoping the matter is cleared up and Jason is soon released to be reunited with his family here in the North Bay.
