Obama has been owned and outed by Iran. The hostages have already described the the events on the ground. They sat on a plane not for mere hours, but overnight, waiting for a second plane filled with cold hard cash – like a mafia deal from the thug-in-chief.
The enemedia isn’t covering it – they have their hands full destroying Trump and promoting Iran nuke dealer Hillary:
[Hostage] SAEED ABEDINI: I just remember the night that we’ve been in an airport – you know – just take hours and hours there. And I asked one of the intelligence police heads that was with us – that why we were not letting us to go to the [inaudible] plane and he told me we are waiting for another plane. And if that plane takes off then we are going to let you go.
Obama gave the murderous jihad state billions. And now the world will suffer the consequences of a newly enriched, newly sanctioned vicious Islamic state.
And this is yest another bold-faced lie in what is now a laundry list of traitorous deceptions: Israel bitterly rejects Obama’s claim it now backs Iran nuclear deal After US president said Israeli officials consider accord a ‘game changer,’ Defense Ministry compares it to the Munich Agreement with the Nazis
Obama should be tried for treason.
Iran has aired a documentary created a few months ago containing footage of pallets of millions in foreign currency that the video claims was part of the “expensive price” the Obama administration paid to free the four U.S. hostages in January.
Video: Obama on Iran payment: ‘We do not pay ransom’
Though it’s uncertain if the footage actually shows the $400 million in foreign currency (used to skirt U.S. law forbidding giving Iran U.S. dollars) transported at the same time the four American hostages were released, the overt attempt to humiliate America has certainly done its propagandistic job, and throws more fuel on the fire for the administration.
The Washington Free Beacon provides some more details on the footage:
BBC Persian reporter Hadi Nili posted the footage on Twitter, describing it as showing the “pallets of cash” and quoting officials as saying “this was just part of the ‘expensive price’ to release Americans.”
The footage, which is from an Iranian documentary published a few months ago, contradicts claims by Obama administration officials maintaining that the payment was completely unrelated to the release of these U.S. hostages, despite the payment having been supplied on the same day these individuals were freed by Iran.
The video also claims that the Obama administration insisted that Iranian officials keep the transfer of money absolutely secret and threatened them should they leak information to the press. Clearly, the Iranians aren’t overly concerned about threats from this administration.
Omri Ceren has this:
On Wednesday morning the WSJ published its story about the Obama administration sending Iran $400 million in cash while the Iranians released some American hostages [a]. Critics said the story proved the administration paid Iran a ransom for the hostages. The administration denied the characterization and said the money was unrelated to the hostages.
To resolve the issue, reporters have been trying to nail down the timing of two relevant flights: the plane with the hostages leaving Iran and the plane with the money arriving in Iran. If the hostages were held until the money arrived, it would strongly suggest the administration has been misleading reporters about the transfer being unrelated to the hostages.
The administration has declined to clarify the sequence since the WSJ story came out. State Department spokesperson Toner got the question on Wednesday from Fox News reporter James Rosen and today from AP reporter Matt Lee, and he said he didn’t have an answer.
Then on today’s FBN “Intelligence Report with Trish Regan,” Trish Regan interviewed Pastor Saeed Abedini, one of the hostages freed in the deal last January. He locked down the sequence: the hostages’ plane was indeed held up until the Iranians confirmed that a second plane had arrived. Originally the hostages were supposed to be taken from prison to their plane with minimal delays, but instead they were held in the airport overnight – despite the plane, pilot, and hostages being ready – and Abedini was told they’d never be allowed to leave if that second plane didn’t show up.
