Can’t wait to see Josh Earnest and State Department spokesman Toner lisping their butts off explaining this.
Well, it looks like they brainstormed and wracked their small minds to come up with a fairy tale that will counter the truth of the obvious ransom payment Barack Obama made to Iran to set the prisoners free according to the Wall Street Journal.
This just confirms what we already knew. Obama is a consummate liar just like his current and former Secretaries of State. They think the public believes their crap that this was NOT a ransom payment. The whole world knows that the Iranians look on Obama and Kerry as the two biggest patsies in the history of the world.
From Wall Street Journal:
The picture emerged from accounts of U.S. officials and others briefed on the operation: U.S. officials wouldn’t let Iranians take control of the money until a Swiss Air Force plane carrying three freed Americans departed from Tehran on Jan. 17. Once that happened, an Iranian cargo plane was allowed to bring the cash home from a Geneva airport that day.
President Barack Obama and other U.S. officials have said the payment didn’t amount to ransom, because the U.S. owed the money to Iran as part of a longstanding dispute linked to a failed arms deal from the 1970s. U.S. officials have said that the prisoner release and cash transfer took place through two separate diplomatic channels.
But the handling of the payment and its connection to the Americans’ release have raised questions among lawmakers and administration critics.
“Our top priority was getting the Americans home,” said a U.S. official. Once the Americans were “wheels up” on the morning of Jan. 17, Iranian officials in Geneva were allowed to take custody of the $400 million in currency, according to officials briefed on the exchange.
So, Obama lied we did pay a ransom. I thought the USA didn’t do that. All this proves is Obama always takes the easy way out instead really wanting to work a solution! This Obama admin once again demonstrates their dishonesty and completely inept dealing with dangerous world powers. It used to be called treason to fund enemies.
Heads up! Obama paid a ransom.
