Iran's state news agency is claiming that Iran has released four American hostages who are dual American-Iranian citizens.
According to FARS, the four Americans - Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, Christian pastor Saeed Abedini, former U.S. marine Amir Hekmati and and an unidentified man believed to be businessman Siamak Namazi - in exchange for six Iranians held in this country on sanctions related charges.
The State Department has yet not comment on this report. Anything Iran says must be greeted with the utmost skepticism. I'll believe they are free when they are back on American soil.
Nevertheless, if the Obama Administration is prepared to trade five Taliban for Bowe Bergdahl then it more than plausible that they are prepared to make this deal.
