Dances With Iranians

Obama dances the jizya*  . . . "The Iranians know desperation when they see it and Obama was desperate for the appearance of success in the Middle East. Seems we have a president more concerned with his image than with the honor and reputation of the U.S. and its citizens. Compare this to Stephen Decatur, the hero of the Tripoli wars:
He and nine volunteers made straight for the gunboat and borded her, with Decatur leading the charge. They were outnumbered five to one but fought ferociously. Decatur found the burly Muslim captain who killed his brother, and immediately confronted him...
"Decatur, and the men he led, must be rolling over in their graves."
*Jizya (Extortion)  "Muhammad clearly established that people of other religions have to pay a poll tax to Muslims called the jizya, as a reminder of their inferior status." . . . 

Report: DOJ Officials Warned Obama Admin that $400 Million Iran Transfer Looked Like ‘Ransom’  . . . "Now, we are learning that senior Justice Department officials even warned the Obama administration and the State Dept. that the money would look like a ‘ransom payment.’ " . . .

Legal Insurrection
Legal Insurrection: It sounds more like a ransom payment…. . .  . " 'The payment also came when Iran and the West agreed on a nuclear deal. Obama celebrated the deal and the release by saying “the time was right to resolve this dispute as well.” However, Obama never mentioned that they just sent $400 million “in an unmarked cargo plane.”
. . .  The Wall Street Journal explained how the deal happened:" . . .

IBD: Paying Ransom To Iran Endangers Americans Everywhere  . . . "Virtually all experts on terrorism would agree that paying ransom to terrorists is a bad idea. Once you pay for a group of people and show you're weak that way, you guarantee that there will be more innocent people snatched -- an endless cycle of kidnappings and ransom demands. It's a very bad idea, and contrary to long-standing U.S. policy. Yet, that's exactly what the Obama administration did." . . .
Don't expect the same from Obama and Company. Democrats made a big deal out of Iran-Contra for years — even though, at least, Iran-Contra led to the Sandinistas eventually holding elections and peacefully transferring power there. That won't happen in Iran, thanks to Obama's and Kerry's groveling policy toward the mullahs in Tehran. They're on their way to having a nuclear weapon, thanks to our inept policy. And, unlike Iran-Contra, Democrats will pretend nothing wrong happened at all.
PJ Media: White House: Cash Airlift Wasn't Ransom for Hostages, Negotiators Just 'Succeeded'  . . . "President Obama said at the time that “with the nuclear deal done, prisoners released, the time was right to resolve this dispute as well." The White House did not disclose the $400 million airlift.
"White House press secretary Josh Earnest today branded the revelations a scandal only in the minds of "those who are flailing in their attempt to justify their continued opposition to the deal to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.' " . . .
