In the latest impenetrable development in the Middle East, Iran is apparently going to pardon and release two American “hikers” they just went to a lot of trouble to convict and imprison.
Obviously, there’s a lot going on here.
Still, here in the land of the free we don’t do pardons. The repressive Iranians seem a little more flexible that way. WaPo reports it, but you get the sense they’re having acute cognitive dissonance.
