Axis of Evil Pressure Works Again: Iran frees last Jewish 'spies'

Okay, it may be that Bush is Forrest Gumping his way through his Presidency ... but so far he is three for three. Korea revealed it has nukes, Saddam is gone and the Iraqi people free and Iran has gotten a lot more liberal since being lumped in with that group.

Iran has released a final group of Jews jailed for spying for Israel, its foreign minister says.

The five had been serving sentences of up to 13 years.

They were found guilty in July 2000 - in a closed Islamic court along with five other Jews and two Muslims - of charges that they had operated a spy ring for Israel.

The trial and convictions led to widespread condemnation from human rights groups and Western governments.

Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi said the men had been freed from prison in the southern Iranian city of Shiraz where they were arrested.

"Those among our Jewish compatriots who were in prison in Shiraz are now free," he said at a press conference.
