It's funny how many people here make comments about how profoundly stupid some people are, yet they're frequently some of the worst spellers here.

the Attorneys that tried to help the two hikers left where arrested after these two made a statement about how they were treated once they were back here in US. Pretty telling.

We have a whole army who are just as stupid for being there
and then wondering why they get shot or blown up.

Three hikers who have the time and money to do that in the first place
or:
Our military using our money to be there for no good apparent reason.
The stupity level is about the same.

We have people falling off mountains with rescue teams being paid
waiting to go search for them 24-7 while we have teachers laid off.
That is the epitimy of stupidity.

Hopefully these idiots will be a non news factor by next week and no we don't want to hear any interviews or read any future books from them.

What they experienced is called self-inflicted pain(imprisonment)!!

Thank you!!!

It's not even clear yet if they had actually crossed into Iranian territory. Despite what the map shows, there are no lines carved into the earth that mark borders made up by man. What Iran did was despicable, which fits their track record quite nicely. Now, whether it is wise or not to be hiking in Iraq anywhere near the mountains the border lies on, I'd have to say, probably not.

What were they doing hiking in Iraq near the Iranian border in the first place. It was a very stupid thing to do-they couldn't find any other countries not involved in a war to hike in? Waste of our money trying to release them-hopefully they will have to pay it back-it was their own fault.

I agree with Bill M. on this one. I was waiting for someone to say something. I feel no sympathy or empathy, for these 2 hikers & the female who was hiking with them. It is ignorant & stupid & dumb, for any American to be hiking in or near the borderline of Iraq & Iran. You 3 are lucky to be alive, you could have been capture & killed or enslaved by negative & crimminal citizens of IRAQ !!! You should be called the worlds DUMBEST HIKERS!!! As far as I'm concerned the million dollars that was spent to set you free was a waste of money!!! How stupid can a person be!!!!

you are so right they should not have been there in the first place! what do you think the U S A would do if they found 3 hikers hiking on our border !

We do. They hike up here and pick Maters for a dollar a day
then hike back, We say, we gotta secure that border, but we
don.t really mean it. Because you pay a dollar for a mater
and they pick hundreds of them a day.

Well in all my walks in nature I never got into another country just like that.
OK Greece has more set boarders than the mountains in Iran, but hey
there is on thing called preperation.
The whole issue is either a case of ignorance and stupidity or something that really has to do with "spying"

Or Iran looking for some people close to the border they can snatch. Even if they didn't actually cross the border, it's not unheard of countries grabbing people that are close.

Iran got to use it as diplomatic leverage, and got some cash out of it, too.
04:57 AM on 09/29/2011
Well, yes that too. Although I do not remember of them talking about being snatched.
Anyway, the whole issue was ridiculous and got too much attention because Iran was involved. Now all 3 are safe, and they must make up for lost time

Not really. They made the assumption that the border would be clearly marked and honored. I'm betting it was neither, and, even if they had a GPS, foreign countries often look at passage close to their border as an incursion, especially if there's no one else to witness the capture.

They ought to pay back all the expenses incurred in releasing them including the one million dollar bail (bribe). A new level of s.t.u..p.i.d for Americans.

One has to wonder what part of "DUH" these guys didn't understand when they convinced each other that hiking near the border of Iran would be perfectly OK, perfectly safe thing to do?

Going to Iraq was pretty daft in the first place, never mind going near the border with Iran.

Silly CIA spooks. They're lucky they didn't have to face "enhanced interrogation". I guess the Iranians are more civilized than these two clowns' employer.

What about the waterboarding? What about electroshock and chemical shock? What about sensory deprivation? Sleep deprivation?

"beaten, pushed down stairs"? Heck, NYPD is doing worse than that to protesters on Wall St as we speak.

Conservatives, regardless of their political party, have always been on the wrong dead-end side in US history.

First, the conservatives were against freeing the slaves. The evil Government was forcing the property-owners (slave owners) to give up their property. Tyranny!

Then, the conservatives were against Social Security. The evil Government was in the business of feeding and helping the poor and the olds. Tyranny!

Then, the conservatives were against giving equal rights to blacks. The evil Government was infringing the States' rights and the rights of the Whites by forcing them to treat Blacks as equals. Tyranny!

Then, the conservatives were against creating Medicare. The evil Government was taking money away from hardworking Americans to sick old people. Tyranny!

Then, the conservatives were against creating Medicaid. The evil Government was taking money away from hardworking Americans to lazy people. Tyranny!

Now, the conservatives are against creating Health Care. The evil Government is going to take money away from hardworking corporations and successful people and funnel it to the undeserving and lazy. Tyranny!
