While administration officials continue to insist no ransom paid for hostages, Iran says differently

Political Cartoons by Lisa Benson

Rick Moran  "The administration's continued insistence that it didn't pay $400 million in cash to ransom American prisoners in Iran is looking ridiculous in the face of Iranian statements in the past and the way most other nations interpreted the payment." . . .
. . . 
"If it was not intended to be secret, why did the administration keep the transaction from the House and Senate intelligence committees?
"One of the hostages claims that his plane sat on the runway for hours waiting for the plane with the $400 million in cash: . . .

Update: Iran: $400 Million in Cash Was Part of ‘Expensive Price’ to Free U.S. Hostages  . . . "The footage, which could not be independently verified, shows images of large stacks of hard currency and features claims that the Obama administration sent this money over as part of an effort to free several U.S. hostages. The White House vehemently denied these claims this week following new reports about the cash exchange.
"BBC Persian reporter Hadi Nili posted the footage on Twitter, describing it as showing the “pallets of cash” and quoting officials as saying “this was just part of the ‘expensive price’ to release Americans.' ”   Iran owns Barack Obama, lock, stock, and barrel.

"When the Iranians and most of the rest of the world believes that ransom was paid to get our hostages released, the administration simply doesn't have a leg to stand on.  They can claim no ransom was paid until they are blue in the face and it won't change the facts.
"President Obama is fond of saying Republicans refuse to accept reality.  The administration not only refuses to accept reality in this case, they are actively lying to the American people."
