    "We don't negotiate with terrorists."

    Except Obama. He does. But of course, $0.4B is a drop in the bucket compared to the billions they'll be flush with due to his deal with them.

    Weak, horrible President.

    Money probably wasn't for the "hostages".

    Saw this earlier - I'm glad hostage are ok, not ok the the precedent this sets.

    Don't worry, they'll make a donation to the Clinton foundation!!

    We should have negotiated this when we allowed them to have nukes.

    He's woefully unprepared to be president.

    He's an enemy of the state. Destroying this nation anyway he can.

    How much do you want to bet that a major story like this doesn't even bump the irrelevant Trump story (with the crying baby) off the top of the headlines?

    Failure!
    YOu don't pay for US citizens you send a bomb up the countries ass, then walk in and get our citizens back. Horrible precedent.
    Now every Podunk fuckwad thinks they can get 100 million for a US citizen. Thanks Obama.

    Obama still has nothing on the Knicks when it comes to overpaying for people.

    How many Muslim babies did the GOAT POTUS kill in order to clean up the mistake his predecessors made of killing Muslim babies, brah? Just curious what number he needs to kill in order to be disqualified from GOAT POTUS status.

    Obama is just paying US debts.

    The money represented the first installment of a $1.7 billion settlement the Obama administration reached with Iran to resolve a decades-old dispute over a failed arms deal signed just before the 1979 fall of Iran’s last monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.


    The settlement, which resolved claims before an international tribunal in The Hague, also coincided with the formal implementation that same weekend of the landmark nuclear agreement reached between Tehran, the U.S. and other global powers the summer before.

    You want someone that negotiates with terrorists? every single republican president in the last 30 years has.

    Funny how you turn into a warmongerer when it comes to Iran, but you look into a policy of appeasement when it comes to Saudi Arabia.

    $100 million per person?! No one is worth that much unless it's Elon Musk, Oprah, Buzz Aldrin, or my girl T swift.

    LOL, this story is old news.

    The GOAT POTUS haters are hilarious. Won't give GOAT POTUS credit for saving hundreds of thousands of American lives through healthcare - will only hate because he doesn't say Radical Islam enough.

    That's how demented the haters are. But that's ok, when haters bring knives, the alpha GOAT POTUS brings a gun. Obama already beat Hillary, too bad he couldn't run against The Don, GOAT POTUS always effortlessly crushes him. How GOAT is Obama? We haven't even seen him in his final form yet!
