Iran Sentences U.S. Hikers to 8 Years Imprisonment
by

Today, an Iranian court sentenced Americans Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal to eight years imprisonment.

Bauer and Fattal along with Sarah Shourd were detained by Iranian authorities in July 2009 after allegedly crossing into Iran while hiking along the Iraq-Iran border. The three hikers were accused of espionage. Shourd was released last September after the Iranians were given half a million dollars. However, Bauer and Fattal remain in Iran’s notorious Evin prison.

Despite Iran’s actions against American civilians, the Obama Administration is simply too timid to tell the world that Bauer and Fattal have been taken hostage by the Iranian regime. Disgraceful.
