I would believe they were incredibly stupid before I believed they were spies.

Close described Bauer as “an artist whose first love is photography. He’s also linguistically gifted and just wanted to immerse himself in the Middle East.”

Well...you can`t get much more immersed in the Middle East than this. Time to put those language skills to the test!

Call Saint Bill, he has a track record in dealing in such matters.

I'm interested in how you know they were spies. Please share with us the information you have. Will check back.

If they went to UC Berkley then there's a better chance they're spies working for Iran.

OK, OK, all jokes aside.....

These people are just idiots. I don't trust Iran but when you put yourself in a situation where you're close to the Iranian border where the lines are probably a bit fuzzy then you should expect some consequences for your stupidity. Iran should fine them all $10,000 and send them home with an "idiot" sticker attached to their foreheads.

Don't worry Iran, they are not spies. The spies are the ones that you don't know about...

What a bunch of morons, these 3 idiots what the hell where doing hiking on iran border as if they don't know already the tension between US and IRan. Maybe they wanted attention well they sure got it!

as much spies as many in Gitmo were terrorists. Hope Iran has more moral fibre than the US has in dealing with prisoners. Shouldn't be too hard even North Korea leads the US in that department.

Why not check and see what countries US citizens are allowed to travel in. As I said when this first came up, I was told by the US consulate in Saudi that IRAN,IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, AND PAKISTAN were off limits for US civilians.
