I’m told that Sergeant Lopez here put up a sign in his cell, a sign that normally would have been torn down by those guards. But this one was written in Spanish, and his guards didn’t know that “Viva la roja, blanco, y azul” means “Long live the red, white, and blue.” They may not understand what that means in Iran, but we do, Sergeant Lopez, and you’ve filled our hearts with pride. Muchas gracias.
