No terrorists have been negotiated with.

Obama's actions weren't acceptable. But the nation of Iran is not a terrorist organisation.

I find it quite strange how it is acceptable for Israel to have nuclear weapons, and thus the ability to destroy everyone in the region, yet no one else in the area is permitted that luxury.


Kennedy tried to mess with Israels nuke weapons program and you know what happened to him. Not to mention they own or have dirt on virtually every politician.

It's a politically motivated list.



I do have my theories on the Arc of Instability in the ME, and why
Saudi is always a friend. I tend to lean to the view that its a New
World Order goal in mind by those who are typically in power
as POTUS in the U.S. Shadow Government, i.e. The Clintons
as "chosen" ones to keep the ball rolling in that direction.

This is not as it should be, it is not constitutional, imo.

Look at all of the CFR members.

I'll be voting non establishment, as always leaning
libertarian/conservative.


Incidentally all three of those states aren't particularly friendly to Israel. How strange.


Israel is a beacon of light in terms of Democracy, imo.



Also sponsoring terrorism does not make you a terrorist organisation, merely a state that happens to fund some form of terrorist activity. This would apply to practically every country within the past 80 years.


"Terrorist Organization" is a rather new term, likely introduced at the time
of Al Qaeda when for the first time "terrorists" were deemed to
be based on a set of ideals and actions not State Sponsered.

I think on the 80 years and all encompassing, I would have
a different opinion.

why did this story go away so quickly? President Obama just increased the danger to Americans serving overseas exponentially!

The media is in the fix for him, and Clinton.
I have never seen it this blatant in your face.

240 days and counting no press conference for
Hillary, it counts because she is just going to
be Obama's third term plus massive financial
corruption with the CF

I'm just hoping that they are going way too far this time and being so utterly ridiculous that it doesn't work.

afraid for their lives!

FOX mentioned it tonight. They've covered the story throughout the day.

Thanks!

Fox Link!


According to the Journal, Justice Department officials raised concerns that the timing of the transfer would make it appear to be a ransom payment for the detainees. The officials did not object to the settlement itself.

"People knew what it was going to look like, and there was concern the Iranians probably did consider it a ransom payment," a person familiar with the discussions told the Journal.


Justice Department officials reportedly objected to timing of Iran cash payment

We have NO media anymore. We have meme talkers...look Khan said something! Michelle wore a white gown!

Only the Internet aggregates seem to be carrying this. Down the memory hole, like our 400millionnand a promise of "no nukes" from Iran.

Obama/Clinton/Kerry orchestrated this fiasco; yet they dare to question Trumps stability to lead?

At what point is a "high crime" noted and charged?

Oddly, one of those detainees we American taxpayers "paid" Iran to release is staying in Iran!!!!!! He went back to his apartment and opted to continue living there!!!!!

Very little is known about him. His name is Nosratollah Khosravi-Roodsari.

Three of the others are: Jason Rezaian, Marine veteran Amir Hekmati and Christian pastor Saeed Abedini.

Also, note that Iran, after receiving our money for the "prisoner exchange" detained two more Americans. I will assume that when the next installment comes due, Iran will use these other two as leverage.

Also note that Obama made a settlement with Iran. This case had been in the courts for 20 years. Suddenly Obama decides to settle it?? Saving American taxpayers money??? Really??

Who is Obama?

Yes, spot on about the media, its just a circus at this point.

Obama, Kerry just know he will be leading in the opposite direction as them,
from all one can gather...away from a New World Order, back to U.S. Sovereignty.

All very good, astute points you have made.
Who is the mysterious man who returned to his apartment there?
I noticed he has no picture available in the media?

Better question yet, who is Obama?

It's because it's Obama. had any one else done what u are accusing him of, they would be praised.


No, it would look bad no matter if it was Bush or even Reagan.

Terrible optics. Secret airlift, unmarked plane, Swiss bank accounts.

I thought this was a hoax when I first heard about it, but it appears now that it is true.

Why is this not news worldwide as the leading headline and why has Obama not resigned? It's incredible that he could get away with jail time, never mind staying in office.

To be fair to Iran, they have to do something to get back some of the money still "seized / frozen" by the US government and held by US banks!

The president never said this.
The money belongs need to Iran and was being held in the Hague since 1974.
I remember the whole hostage situation while Carter was president.
We were supposed to be providing arms to Iran then they took those students hostage. We collected the money and put it aside. Iran has been asking for it ever since.

But hey ask Donald he frockin claims he saw the video.
