We were wondering who paid the million dollars for the 2 hikers that have just been released? – Paul, Brewster
I’m curious who is actually paying the “bail” money that it cost to free those hikers that thought it would be fun to hike along the Iranian border? By the way, who thinks that? – D, Hudson
President Obama thanked the leaders of Oman, Iraq and Switzerland for helping negotiate the release.
Do you think it was Oman’s money or did they just hand it over? Do you think the hikers just made a dumb mistake and walked where they shouldn’t have, or are there other explanations?
