Release of U.S. hiker Sarah Shourd 'canceled,' Iran says

Iran's semi-official news agency ILNA reported Friday that the release
of American hiker Sarah Shourd has been "canceled," because legal procedures have not been completed.

Shourd, one of three American hikers held in Iran for more than a year,
was supposed to be released Saturday.

She, along with Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, were detained July 31, 2009,  after they allegedly strayed across an unmarked border into Iran while hiking  in Iraq's Kurdistan region.

    I just watched the mother of one of the boys on TV saying "we need to get him home! We've got a wedding to plan!" What kind of CRETIN goes hiking in Iraq?! "Gollleee, ma, it's so beautiful there!" If I had pulled some stunt like that, my mother would be asking me if I had any last requests, not helping me "plan a wedding." Soon after the wedding I'm sure they'll be breeding another adventuresome genius just like themselves. Pathetic.
