TEHRAN, Iran The American woman released by Iran on Tuesday after more than a year in prison said she was humbled and grateful to Iran's president for her freedom shortly before she boarded a flight to the nearby Gulf sultanate of Oman where her mother was awaiting her.
Iran freed Sarah Shourd, 32, after a $500,000 bail was paid to win her freedom.

thank you sir..... may I have another?
I believe we taxpayers did.
500K to get a ugly Lefty Back?? Bad deal.
She was grateful to Iran’s president?????????? Major Stockholm Syndrome, I’d say. How about a little gratitude for the people who raised the $500k?
Anyway, she’s a moron, and probably a lefty. Only the leftist idiots don’t know these people are our ENEMY!!! I suppose the family and friends of this woman are grateful to Ahmanutjob, too.
It is also colossally stupid to be hiking along the border of a country where US troops are still involved in combat operations and another country that is actively trying to destabilize the first country and considers the US an enemy.
Right now, we are doing it wrong. I guess we are STILL refusing to learn from history.
Yep. Since November 1979.
I'd love to see several government buildings and mullahs' residences in Iran bombed to smithereens.
Not to mention the nuke plant(s).
Did you watch her eyes during the release conference? She was still scared to death.
Can we lockup illegals and demand $500,000 bail/ransom? We might be on to something here. Round up enough, maybe we could payoff the national debt. Oh, but I am guessing Mexico won’t pay because they don’t want them back.
I didn’t say I don’t understand why she will be spoon-feeding propaganda to the media, at least as long as her friends are still captives in Mullah-land..... I said that the spectacle is nauseating.
If a rapist holds three captives and is raping them, but releases one who proceeds to sing the praises of the rapist in order to try to win the freedom of the other two, I can understand why the freed victim says something without either endorsing or approving of it myself.
Yeah, lefty would be my guess, or they wouldn’t have been venturing into Iranian territory in the first place.
afaik they never appeared in court; no hearings had been held yet.
Early on it was said that she is very ill. Anyone know the nature of her illness?
And where in the heck is our fabulous president while Americans are held hostage?
I’m thrilled that my money is helping arm Iran so that this empty headed idiot could be freed.
Who vacations in a War Zone (Iraq)?
***Iran freed Sarah Shourd, 32, after a $500,000 bail was paid to win her freedom.****
Sounds like the traditional moslem practice of kidnapping someone and holding them for ransom.
More about them here!
Wonder if those nice degrees from Berkley in “Peace and Conflict Studies” helped in the REAL WORLD!
Any evidence that the US paid the bail, Allegra?
She was already a muslim sympathizing, israel-hater before she walked into iran. Just another Rachel Corrie type,, and just watch, even after her two buddies are safe at home, she will still have nothing but kind words for iran, and will blame their behavior on their just suspicion of all Americans.
