Muhammad Ali asks Iran to free U.S. hikers

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky - Boxing champ Muhammad Ali is seeking the release of two American hikers from Iran by lobbying the country's supreme leader in a way that few American dignitaries can: as a brother in Islam.

Arguably the most prominent U.S. Muslim, Ali made his simple, behind-the scenes appeal to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in February and released his letter to The Associated Press on Wednesday. Ali's wife said he would be willing to return to the country, which he's visited twice before, to work on the hikers' release if his health allows.

The letter asks Khameini to release Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer, who have been held on espionage charges since July 2009, when they were arrested while hiking in northern Iraq near the Iranian border.

A third hiker, Sarah Shourd, was released on bail in September.....

Well, yes....He's "working" on it; but his "work" may be in vain.


I think Ali's heart is right; but, IMO, the economic and political reaches of those hikers go way beyond any "philanthropic" or religious intervention.
