For the Iranians this deal with the hikers has been a Win-Win.

The U.S. Obummer government's impotence has been amply demonstrated to the world.

The Iranians' "mercy" has been also demonstrated to their admirers by the release of the woman due to health concerns. (her dying in their custody might not have been a plus)

The Iranian's fiscal responsibility has been shown by the $ 500,000 bail/ransom they got up front for the woman's release. Plus the fact they can get more good PR when the ungrateful, and no doubt guilty, woman "Spy" "skips" on her bail.

Plus, they still have the two men who can be also be offered out for bail money, tried, imprisoned, executed or whatever the Iranians think will benefit them most.

Win-Win all around for the Iranians.:rolleyes:

"Berkeley educated"

Ah, OK. That would explain the "Deer in the headlights" look and the profuse expressions of gratitude to her captors for their hospitality. :rolleyes:
