    • Saeed Abedini was one of three American hostages in Iran released in January in a prisoner exchange
    • Abedini believes the report that surfaced this week, claiming that the U.S. paid Iran $400 million for the prisoners release
    • Abedini says the day they were set to be released, his captors held them at the airport while they waited on another mystery plane to take off
    • Abedini believes this other was the aircraft that brought the $400million to Iran
    Do you think CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS will look into this?

    Ah, yes, someone believes something, so it's true.

    No proof or evidence though. Just bible level beliefs.

    So the plane took 8 months to make the trip back and forth?

    He was one of the four hostages that was released...not just "someone"

    He was right in the middle of it

    The $400 million was for money the US owed Iran(+interest) from way back in the 70s.

    I feel kinda pathetic to be that country who takes out a loan or signs a business contract only to give the guy the finger when it comes time to pay up. That's some bitch shit and it was about damn time we paid them back.

    Fuck this Abedini cunt anyway

    Except he literally saw nothing and has no proof. For all he knew that plane could have been full of ice cream and popsicles.

    So if we made a deal with Germany back in the day, Hitler toppled the leadership that we made the deal with, came to power and started causing trouble...you think we should have sent planes carrying pallets of cash to pay up while he was causing trouble?

    Iran is the number one state sponsor of terror

    Yeah. They were waiting on the ice-cream man before they would release the prisoners.

    Just as plausible as "that plane is full of money" because the guy saw nothing.

    He's wrong , because the facts say otherwise. If he has proof of his claim then he should publicize it.

    So what was so important about the plane that they had to wait on before they were released?

    "If the plane doesn't show up we aren;t letting you go"

    "It wasn't a ransom and even if it was it was their money rightfully "

    " The money was flown into Iran on wooden pallets stacked with Swiss francs, euros and other currencies as the first installment of a $1.7 billion settlement resolving claims at an international tribunal at The Hague over a failed arms deal under the time of the Shah. "

    Iran sees it as a ransom. So does one of the hostages. I know about the spin already

    So you think it was a good idea to pay the number 1 state sponsor of terror money?

    The Supreme Court and Congress ruled that terror victims should have 1st dibs on the money. They haven't been paid yet

    Listen to yourself, dude. Is there any source that could convince you that you have the story wrong, or have you made up your mind and it's not gonna change?
