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.

Mark Steyn did, sort of.
But here’s the thing. He carried a gun all the time over there, wrote that he would have gone down fighting rather than be kidnapped, and that if captured he would NOT expect to have been ransomed.
“Shourd’s mother has said her daughter has been denied treatment for serious health problems, including a breast lump and precancerous cervical cells.”
“humbled and grateful is just another way of saying,,,,”
Baloney,, she means it. She loves them,, she won’t ever turn on them, because she shares their anti-USA anti-Israel philosophy. Just watch how she acts long after the boys are released. And look for the book,, warmly understanding iranian suspicion of America,,, and waxing in about the beauty of Islam. Just watch,,,
interesting..... they have journalistic aspirations and activities, which suggests that the claim they were merely “lost hikers” is more than a bit implausible
in any case “hiking” around the Iran/Iraq border anything seems like a pretty crazy idea, especially while there are US troops in Iraq and Iran is fighting a terrorist war against the west
“Sarah: No more hiking next to belligerent countries, OK?”
They should pull her passport and put her on every no-fly list in the world.
There is such a thing as “too stupid to leave the country.”
No, not at all. In fact, Crowley is saying the US didn't pay it and I guess I should give them the benefit of the doubt.
It's just that I find that so difficult when it comes to our government these days.
Hey, it's Camp Kupcake! You don't know what you're missing.
Palm trees, sand....ummm....other stuff...
Another leftwing extremist collides with reality.
Nice that her family was able to put together half a million dollars to get her out.
Too bad they couldn’t raise the money for her 2 friends.
“I believe we taxpayers did.”
U.S. Government will not pay bail for U.S. hiker imprisoned in Iran, U.S. State Department says

Pre cancerous growths in cervix and a breast lump
They aren't saying who did but they're saying it's not us.
I guess I'll go along with that unless we hear otherwise.
Bail...the new ransom.
This little Muzzie loving bigoted lefty should be denied reentry into this country. She has been spreading hate of the West and esp Israel while encamped in Syria. Debbie Schlussel has the scoop on all 3 of these lefty tools!
Also it is BS that the US did not pay for her release, the Iranians got exactly what they wanted out of the treasonous State dept.
Perhaps I’m a bit biased, but it is difficult for me to imagine this young woman, any young woman, being examined by these people. I hope and pray that she and her companions have learned a valuable lesson from this experience.
Sulaimaniya is very beautiful, as are Dohuk and Erbil. I went to Kurdistan in 2006 and it was nothing like the rest of Iraq. We were able to actually walk in the streets to restaurants and shops with no body armor on.
This was back when Baghdad was just freakin' insane. I was up there in Kurdistan on a business trip as we were standing up some camps and coming back to Baghdad was not easy after that. :)
I still think it awfully strange that these people wandered accidentally into Iran...
I always thought that either these people were totally, drop dead stupid, or were being used by someone or something.
>I still think it awfully strange that these people wandered accidentally into Iran...
IMO, FWIW, free lance correspondents for CurrentTV.
I mean, WTH, you can’t go hiking in the Alps, Rockies, Sierras, Cascades, Andes, Himalayas....but near Iran?
