Ahmadinejad talks with Syrian ally before journey to U.S.

OK so here we go....

He wants to play nice. Good, now the Hikers they have been holding for about a year or more can be released. The article goes on to mention their release and the US releasing some Iranians the US has in their custody.

Seems like a simple tit for tat or is it?......


Ahmadinejad is expected to arrive in the United States on Sunday, the same day as American hiker Sarah Shourd returns home after a 14-month detention in a Tehran jail.

Ahmadinejad discussed Shourd in a televised address Friday, saying that her release was a unilateral gesture made without any promise of a quid pro quo, but that doesn't mean Iranian officials wouldn't appreciate a similar act from the United States.

"We have no expectations," he told IRINN. "But naturally, morally, the expectation would be that the U.S. government would take a step to release a number of Iranians

And they still hold her fellow hikers. Kidnapping for ransom is what he proposes.

Does he really think they are going to allow known terrorist leaders to be exchanged for these hikers?

Ahmadinejad is such a bad guy, it seems like a total act. As long as Iran is made out to be the bad guy, the PTB can continue to pretend that it isn't the Saudis who fund worldwide jihad.

Where, pray, is your evidence that they weren't hikers?

People do strange things all the time. Up to and including hiking where they shouldn't.

I'm just saying, the media says they were hikers, where is your proof that they were just hikers? Who the hell goes hiking on the iran iraq boarder? Maybe they were just hikers, but the media is sure using it to pull on the heart strings of people to create more anti-iran sentiment. I always question what I'm told by the MSM. Which is zionist controlled.

You obviously don't know how a debate works.

The person that chooses to go against the topic in question must be the first to post proof against said topic.

I'm still a little fuzzy on where exactly the US picked up these Iranians that he would like see released? Here in the states? Iraq? where?

You're the one saying they aren't. Up to you to prove your hypothesis, not us to disprove...

Now, about that evidence?

One of many articles about covert action by the CIA going on in Iran.

blogs.abcnews.com...

The first thing people should think is that they were spies, IMO. To tell you the truth I really dont care lol.

You say you question everything that MSM tells you, why not for the story you posted allegedly proving they were spies? Oh, I know why. You don't question it because it reinforces your opinion, to hell with facts and research. It was probably the first and only source you searched and found.

This proves nothing. Try again.

You know what I find funny?

Is that when the American MSM releases something that puts Iran or any other country in a bad light it's deemed propaganda from the powers that be.

However when it releases a story like the one you posted then it's deemed a qualified source.

well it is confirm-able. The Iraq-Iran boarder is 1 huge mountain wall, so hikers can be a feasible situation

You're kidding, right?

You distrust the msm, yet to prove your point you use the msm.

So, in retrospect, when you said you distrust the main stream media, what you really meant was: You disagree/distrust only when it doesn't suit your agenda...

Cool.

OH boy, here we go again, questions from people who have no clue what is going on in the adventure tourism industry. Frankly, I'm rather tired of pointing this out, so I will just "advise" to do a search on it. Plenty of information about the reasons why many (from around the world) would choose to go backpacking in Kurdistan at this time.

I still haven't found a real source on the Iranians held by the US?.
Does anybody have more details on who they are and when they were taken? Were they taken in a tit for tat move? That could possibly shed some light on the story.

An interesting perspective: A Mountain Of Trouble from Outside Magazine contributor who also traveled to the same area to ask the questions about what *may have happened and why.

The last I heard, which was some time ago, they're tourists who strayed across the border into Iran. So far as I know, which isn't a whole lot, totally innocuous. They're being used as a political pawn, or three.
