The West held hostage: Day 12

Could the end of the propaganda circus finally be in sight?

Fox is reporting:

Fifteen British sailors and marines seized by Iranian naval personnel have been pardoned and will be freed, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said at a press conference Wednesday, but he vowed his country would not tolerate invasions of its borders by any country.

"I announce that the great people of Iran and the Islamic Republic, even having legal rights to try these military people, in honor of the prophet's birthday, will be freed as a gift to the people of the United Kingdom," Ahmadinejad said in a speech to reporters, clerics and civil servants in a small hall in Tehran.

In response to a reporter's question, Ahmadinejad said the British troops would be freed at the end of the press conference.

Prime Minister Tony Blair's office said it "welcomes" the news that troops would be freed.

A change of heart by Ahmadinejad—or just another cruel trick like Faye Turney's "release"?

Let's wait and see.
