Think about it. The U.S. Government sent over an unmarked plane in the dead of night with $400 million dollars to Iran when they released four hostages nobody knew and without a fight, and we’re being told this wasn’t ransom money. Yeah right!
This latest Obama move is being brought to you by the people who don’t care how our vets are treated at the VA and who walled off the WW2 memorial because we couldn’t afford to keep it open. I remember when it was policy not to negotiate with terrorists, now we just pay them whatever they want.
Wooden pallets stacked with euros, Swiss francs and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said.
The money represented the first installment of a $1.7 billion settlement the Obama administration reached with Iran to resolve a decades-old dispute over a failed arms deal signed just before the 1979 fall of Iran’s last monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.
The settlement, which resolved claims before an international tribunal in The Hague, also coincided with the formal implementation that same weekend of the landmark nuclear agreement reached between Tehran, the U.S. and other global powers the summer before.
“With the nuclear deal done, prisoners released, the time was right to resolve this dispute as well,” President Barack Obama said at the White House on Jan. 17 — without disclosing the $400 million cash payment.
“As we’ve made clear, the negotiations over the settlement of an outstanding claim…were completely separate from the discussions about returning our American citizens home,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said. “Not only were the two negotiations separate, they were conducted by different teams on each side, including, in the case of The Hague claims, by technical experts involved in these negotiations for many years.”
But U.S. officials also acknowledge that Iranian negotiators on the prisoner exchange said they wanted the cash to show they had gained something tangible.
Barack and Hillary’s epic corruption has been proven repeatedly. 50% of people say that although they think Hillary is a liar and not trustworthy, they will vote for her. What is wrong with people? Are we witnessing the complete regression of society? The inability of individuals to use common logic and reason due to media brainwashing?
