    The US owes Iran a debt from 1979 and this was one of the installment payments for the $1.7B.

    Iran wanted the payment to be made around the time of the hostage release so it would like they were getting something for the release.

    No, it was Iran's own money. They just transferred the funds at the same time to give the appearance of a deal when there was none.
