American Hikers: Released

Joshua Fattal and Shane Bauer who were arrested in 2009 and sentenced to 8 years in prison for espionage while hiking along the Iraq-Iran border, were finally released yesterday.

Is this a wonderful moment? Absolutely. However, the hikers were not released out of the goodness of their captors Iranian hearts. There was a payment drop in lieu of freedom. A payment of $1 million to be exact, according to CBS News.
