Lawyer: American hikers' release in Iran could come soon

A lawyer for two American hikers held in Iran for more than two years told CNN on Saturday that Iranian authorities are close to signing documents that could mean the pair are released on bail from Tehran's Evin prison.

Masoud Shafiee, attorney for Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer, said he was "very hopeful" they might be released Saturday.

On Tuesday, the lawyer raised hopes that the pair might soon be freed. Shafiee said the two men could be released after a $500,000 bail was paid for each of them.

    I've been tracking the online activities of the person responsible for most of the trolling. I have been patiently waiting for her to cease and desist for weeks...even warning her on two occassions. The profile of an troll: 1.) Older woman w/no husband. 2.) Constantly meddling in others personal affairs.3.) Very low I.Q., in the 70-80 range. 4.) Thinks old men are stupid

    I don't understand why Iran would need money? I assume they make millions a week in oil revenue. I just don't understand.

    @dustin...exactly. Iranians have access to their own natural resources, and are very wealthy. If Somalians had access to their own vast oil reserves, they would be among the wealthiest individuals on earth. 4 major oil corporations have already been busted bribing African leaders who grant access to the oil. Any Somali citizen who fights against this is labled "al-quida" and murdered.

    @ Cousin It troll and the Man troll: Knock it off As$ Wypes! You're sick little boys with nothing to do! Unless you have a "grandma" fettish, it's highly unlikely you would enjoy seeing me in a mini-skirt. And if you ARE wanting to sport a granny on your arm, you're sicker than I thought.

    @dustin...Halliburton has been on two seperate occassions prosecuted for bribing E. African leaders. On both occassions, they were ordered to pay fines to the same governments they were bribing!
