The Iranian Justice System at work

http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Foreign-Policy/2011/0820/American-hikers-Josh-Fattal-and-Shane-Bauer-get-stiff-sentences-in-Iran

It’s hard for me to feel too sorry for these guys as there is no reason for them to be hiking in NW Iraq much less Iran.  Neither place is a bastian of freedom and Iraq is not the safest of places.  However, the sentence these two received is outrageous.  Has anybody heard evidence that they were spies?  Why would a spy be in that part of Iran?  Unfortunately, it looks like a poor decision has resulted in a harsh sentence.  Hopefully Ramadan will result in a pardon
