US to free nine Iranians held in IraqFinancial Times, 12 minutes ago!
The US military said on Tuesday that it would release nine Iranians being held in Iraq, including two of the so-called "Arbil five" arrested in January on suspicion of supporting armed militia in the country.
"It is our intent to release nine Iranians currently in custody in the near future," Rear Admiral Greg Smith, a US military spokesman, said at a press conference.
"These individuals have been assessed to be of no continuing value, nor do they pose a further threat to Iraqi security," he said.
(This is the American way of saying "Sorry! we screwed up innocent people again!")
