    however, she is half Iranian, half British, and so far as I know carries a British passport.  (She was born in London but grew up in Tehran). Her husband is American, James Rubin, a close advisor of Clinton's.  To consider her American is a stretch.

      about American journalists. In any case, she reports for American media houses and she is married to a American born citizen which - it is not a stretch to believe - with a little formalization could make her an American.

      she's a naturalized US citizen.  I don't think it's a stretch at all to consider her an American.

      Things work out best for those who make the best of the way things work out.
