The Iranian government has released Sarah Shourd, one of three American hikers who have been detained for more than a year, after receiving a half-million dollars in “bail” — really a ransom. It’s not clear who paid it.
The White House notes in an official statement that “Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal remain prisoners in Iran who have committed no crime.” The statement goes on:
We remain hopeful that Iran will demonstrate renewed compassion by ensuring the return of Shane, Josh and all the other missing or detained Americans in Iran.
Because that’s what we’ve come to expect from the Islamic Republic — compassion.
