Today's World at One

Typical caveat-ridden academic quote on the World at One today - 'it is more or less certain that it's probably the case...' Made me roll my eyes anyway.

He was talking about the Iranian hostages, and incidentally i don't really get how just giving coordinates where the soldiers were captured will increase pressure on Iran. They know where it was (they were there after all) and in any case I would have thought this was the absolute minimum you could do when another country has kidnapped your military personnel. Hardly ratcheting up pressure.
