The Last Refuge  "When the discussion of possible ransom payments to Iran surfaced, everyone was wondering why the U.S. State Department sent pallets of assorted cash currency, totaling $400 million to Iran on January 17th 2016.   The same day the hostages were released.
"On August 4th President Obama held a press conference to discuss the controversy and denied it was a “ransom payment” (see video).  Specifically, to answer the question of “why cash“, President Obama said:

"However, two days later, January 19th 2016, the U.S. Treasury wired Iran 13 individual payments for $99,999,999.99 , each with an independent MICR, totaling $1,299,999,999.87."
