American 'Tourists' Arrested After 'Straying' Into Iran

Yes, this one had me laughing my socks off. And it was 9am, a time I don't often find anything funny.

CNN is reporting "Three American tourists are believed to be in Iranian custody after they may have strayed across the border from Iraq during a mountain hike, Kurdish officials said Friday."

Right. Americans tourists hiking in Iraq that close to the Iranian border, AND in the Kurdistan area, where there have been lots of recent incidents. Now we know most yanks are stupid, but that stupid?

This story is even more suspicious if you believe Seymour Hersh's claims from 2005 "US special forces 'inside Iran' "
