I think that they were a couple of young adults form privilaged families who wanted a bit of adventure and got some . I mean commmon sense they are mostlikely lucky the Iranian athority cought them and not bandits or gee land mines . Bloody foolish kids , I also bet layers of bureaucratic red tape was purposely used slowed their return makes for a better . I`m sure thier stay was no club med .

Those peeps were probably spies....

Right, the CIA sent in three WHITE Americans into Iran as spies...

That logic is crazy.

I am almost positive the CIA DOES have spies
in Iran. Ones that blend in with the people and culture..

They have spy satellites that can see over Iran.

It makes no sense they would send in unarmmed white people
with backpacks and no spy equipment to Iran of all places..

The CIA might be crazy, but there not dumb.

Why would you go hiking anywhere?
You must like doing it, people go hiking
in the Arizona desert, and try to climb mountains
in exotic places. The more exotic the more thrilling.
I think these hikers just got a little to much thrill.

If they were spies they would of been equipped to kill
any threat, and probably would of never been heard of.

If the Iran government really thought they were spies, Iran would
of erased them...

These people were used as political pawns by Iran.

Really? You think this is dumb? Sounds to me like a rather cunning and genius plan.

CIA send in some rather bad and obvious spies, laying a trap for the IRanians. Iranians arrest said spies, America wins a massive part of the propaganda war against Iran.

If anything it would be theoretically very very clever from the CIA, not stupid. Think a little deeper.

In the same way the British marines just happened to drift into Iranian waters. That wasn't done on purpose to paint Iranians as lunatics or anything.

In both cases it seems like bait
