Whichever of the silly moonbats flits home will probably end up blaming the US for the imprisonment. Iran should keep all of them.

Iran can keep them all we don't need America haters here in our country.

It sounds like the girl has both boob and snapper problems so she is probably of no use to the Iranians anymore.

I wonder how much these 3 spoiled brats have cost taxpayers so far? Why can't people understand it when the State Department reccommends "NO TRAVEL" to a country there's a reason for it. We shouldn't have to pay one red cent for the release of anyone that intentionally puts themselves in harms way by disregarding State Department advisories. Let 'em rot.

Has anyone here actually read the story? Why are they being called "America haters"? Tehran is holding them on the grounds that they are American spies. Whether or not they are remains to be seen, but that's hardly an anti-American occupation.

Also, the female is required to wear a headscarf - she is a prisoner in Iran, for crying out loud! It's not a "costume" that she can simply choose not to wear without serious consequence. They may have made some ill-advised choices, but can we please keep the commentary based in reality?

Iran has learned well from North Korea. Nukes are a great defense mechanism.

There is seriously something wrong with some of the posters on this site. They are ignorant and uninformed, making critical judgments of things they no nothing about. These three people (one form here in MN) crossed the border into Iran ACCIDENTALLY! They did not know they were crossing into Iran as it wasn't an area that was marked or patrolled by the Iranians. They were then arrested, charged and held as American spies by the Iranians for over a year, yet they have NO PROOF of this claim. It has been another bogus attempt by the Iranians to further their anti-American agenda and propaganda. Nothing more. For anyone here making stupid comments, KNOW what the hell you are talking about BEFORE posting, for God's sake. You sound like idiots otherwise!

The conservative posters on this site never let actual "Facts" in in the way of their idiotic beliefs. Next thing you know they will be demanding that these three be stoned because they must be liberals. A bunch of dummies that can understand no more than what Sarah Palen and Rush tell them to think.

I think I'll just ignore people's ignorant and mean comments and celebrate the great news. I can't imagine how happy her family must be.

I am still at a loss as to why they chose that area to hike in. If they have not figured it out, Iran is an area of the world that Americans are not welcome in. Thank God the DMZ between North and South Korea is heavily guarded, they might pick that as the next vacation spot.
