Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer, two American hikers accused of being spies in Iran, will be released from an Iranian prison after a $500,000 bail is paid for each of them, the two men's attorney said Tuesday.
The lawyer said he has spoken to the two men's family and the are trying to get the money quickly.
If the two men walk free this would be the end of an international tug-of-war between Iran and the United States that has stretched on for over two years.
More than two years ago, the two men along with Sarah Shourd - Bauer's fiancee - were hiking in Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region along the Iranian border.
Iranian police arrested the three Americans, saying they illegally entered Iran. They were also charged with spying.FULL STORY
What happened with the US policy of not negotiating with terrorists and hostage takers ?
then they'd have to censor themselves wouldn't they?
Ask St Reagan. After all he was in charge during the Iran/Contra payoffs.

Hahahaha. Lmao! They just want 2 see if the Jeews will fork up the money 4 their kids. You know they got it. If they werent so cheap the headline would have said " Iranian prisoners released on 1 million dollars bail."
So does anyone over there at CNN understand what "bail" is?
