Two American hikers who were captured and accused of spying when they strayed across the border into Iran have been freed after 26 months. What do you think?

  • “Wait a second, the only way Iran would've let the hikers go is if they turned them into double agents. Just to be safe, we'd better lock them up when they get back.”

  • “Those poor things. Just when they think their ordeal is over, they now have to find out how Lost ends.”

  • “Years in detainment far from home, sham charges against them, how could a nation do something like this?”
