Iran continues to profit handsomely off of Obama's presidency. The Obama administration said that the $1.3 billion paid in January, just two days after the ransom payment of $400 million in cash was delivered, to resolve an old dispute .
The dispute dates back to the 1970s, when the then U.S.-backed shah purchased military equipment for $400 million. Due to the Islamic Revolution, the equipment was never delivered because the shah was overthrown and diplomatic ties were severed.
The dollar figure, $1.3 billion, is what the U.S. and Iran agreed would be the interest on the $400 million in principal over all these years. In January, the $400 million was delivered on pallets transporting the euros, Swiss francs and numerous other foreign currency to Tehran.
The Obama Administration finally acknowledged that the timing of this payment was leverage to ensure the release of the hostages.
Leverage or a ransom – a rose is a rose by any other name. Obama negotiated with terrorists.

the illegal helping his people again
They should have never been taken hostage in the first place they had guns they could have kept them Iranians away until help arrived with a helicopter. Are another boat. Let them try it with Trump as president they have standing orders they will not be taking hostage.
Obama is a weak,$#%&!@*Muslim. Obviously taking care of his Muslim brothers. He’s pathetic. He’s the reason the country is divided. I fucking hate him with a passion.
That’s the great Iran accord.
How much of that did Obama keep
Obutthead think it’s funny
Shoot him right in his treacherous face, after the treason trial
lt should never have been done…the iran deal is a disaster and done in bad judgement by obuummer……the$400 million ransom for the 4 hostages was shocking enough and 2 days later, $ 1.3 billion in cash to appease.the Iranians and ensure they don;t pursue heir plans to manufacture nuclear weapons was a big mistake because one can’t trust the Iranians who always renege on their promises,,and besides, negotiating wth terrorists should have never been an option..as a rule…
