Well, I'm Happy For These Hikers...

...but what does this say about Iran? A million bucks is a hefty bail, but should be peanuts for a country awash in oil. What gives? Is this all?
"Shourd was freed almost exactly a year ago on medical grounds. Her release came a week before Ahmadinejad addressed the U.N. last year.

One analyst said the timing last year was no coincidence.

"I think President Ahmadinejad really wanted to use this as a way of building up a store of goodwill just before he comes to New York," Columbia University Prof. Gary Sick said last year after Shourd came home."
Seems to me that after holding these two men for so long, there's not much "goodwill" leverage left to build with.

And what's in it for Oman?

There has to be something going on behind the scenes that we don't know about. Obama? Shillary? What deals did you make with the devil?
