Just one day after Iran convicted an Iranian-American of espionage, President Obama appealed to Iran to release this woman and the Iranian president has responded, out of character, intervening to bring on an appeal.

New York Times

TEHRAN — The head of Iran’s judiciary said Monday that he had ordered the “careful, quick and fair” consideration of an appeal against the eight-year jail sentence imposed on an Iranian-American journalist, one day after Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad urged the chief prosecutor to reexamine the case.

That has to be a progressive move between these two countries.  That could never have happened under George W Bush.
