Last week while Obama was trying to explain to the public why Donald Trump was “unfit to serve” as the next president, we found out about Obama’s “secret meetings” and the “$400 million ransom payment” to Islamic Republic of Iran in exchange for Pastor Saeed Abedini and other prisoners. This week Donald Trump gets attacked by the MSM for even mentioning a video exists as proof of Obama’s “pallets of cash” delivery to Iran for hostages. Turns out, there is a video and it was produced by Iran as a documentary.
Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump responded Thursday, claiming he had seen a video of the $400 million payment being unloaded in Iran while speaking in Maine. Trump walked back his comments Friday, explaining he had actually seen the plane carrying the hostages land in Geneva, not the cash.
The video clip is part of an Iranian documentary originally aired on Feb. 15, about one month after the money transfer and subsequent hostage release. According to BBC Persian reporter Hadi Nili, the clip says that the pallet was only a small part of the “expensive price” the U.S. paid for the hostages.
“This money was returned for the freedom of the U.S. spy [Jason Rezaian] and it was not related to the [nuclear]negotiations,” said Iranian Brig. Gen. Mohammad Reza Naqdi, the head of Iran’s paramilitary Basij force, in January. Jason Rezaian, a reporter for the Washington Post, was one of the four American hostages released by the Islamic Republic.
So there was a video of the “pallets of cash”. The Iranians did a documentary on the “pallets of cash”. Many of the media deny the video exists. Yet, the video exists.
From Fox News and “The Kelly File”:
Let’s recap: Unmarked cargo plane in Iran – that was chartered. Deal took place very late at night. Prisoners said they were stuck on the tarmac for hours waiting for another plane to arrive. Prisoners, like Pastor Saeed Abedini, were told they could not be released until the other plane arrived safely. There was $400 million in CASH and foreign currency exchanged. Obama said they couldn’t wire the money because of “bad banking relationships”, but the truth was sanctions were in place against Iran. The administration couldn’t get Congress to approve the ransom or cash, because that would make the deal illegal. Obama gave $400 million to the Islamic Republic of Iran which is a FELONY! The administration gave $400 million in foreign cash to the same state that has a national anthem that screams – Death to America!
If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck…it’s a duck!
One thing we can say for certain about Obama and Clinton, they both have the same mindset – lying criminals. We had Fast and Furious, the IRS Scandal – targeting of Conservatives, Obamacare – you can keep your doctor, Benghazi – it was caused by a video, ISIS is “on the run” or “the JV team”, email cover ups, the Iranian Nuclear Deal, not to mention all the “mysterious” and “sudden” deaths of those who have publicly come out against the Clintons, and who knows what else. We should have also guessed that Obama and Clinton had another thing in common – they truly represent the city of Chicago and it’s history…especially gangster Al Capone. Capone was best known for the collapse of law and order in Chicago – until Obama and Clinton came along.
