|Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, magnanimous bastard, says he'll release the two Americans.|
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the slithering president of Iran, has made a promise to America -- and one of its most devoted mothers.
Ahmaedinejad told the Washington Post he'll release Minnesota native Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, the two 29-year-olds who were sentenced last month to eight years in an Iranian prison for "spying."
According to their versions, Bauer, a freelance journalist and photographer, was just trying to get to Iraqi Kurdistan, and Fattal was just along for the ride. The always-paranoid Iranian authorities detained, prosecuted, and convicted the two men, along the way charging Bauer's girlfriend, Sara Shourd, in absentia, also for "spying."
In an exclusive interview with the Washington Post, Ahmadinejad wouldn't give up the farcical "spying" allegations, but did say he'd be sending Bauer and Fattal home as a "unilateral humanitarian gesture."
Hey, whatever you've gotta say, man. Just send those guys home. More »
