Remember that thing about Shane and Josh maybe getting freed soon? Not so much. The judiciary of Iran has overruled Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's efforts to put the two up for bail. This may be a by-product of that... let's be diplomatic and say "disputed" 2009 election.
However, due to the opening Ahmadinejad gave, efforts to get the two out have been stepped up, sensing a window of opportunity. Iraqi President Jalal Talibani is on the case; the money appears to be easily obtainable, and an Omani plane is all set to go, in addition to the American-based efforts.
So, not a total loss.
