Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Remember when the US sent a check to Switzerland to be cashed into a pallet of bills and flown to Iran, where hostages were held at the airport until the money arrived?
Remember when President Obama said that was not ransom, that the United States didn’t pay ransom?
Now they’re saying it was a refund due for a never-completed arms deal from the 1970’s. And of course we tied the payment to the release of hostages. It wouldn’t have been prudent to just give them money and hope they released the hostages, since we weren’t paying ransom.
And it wasn’t money laundering either, and wasn’t done to subvert the law against providing assistance to Iran. The fact that it was done in secret, converted from fiat money to US cash to Foreign cash, in foreign banks without extradition or information sharing, was not relevant to their good intentions.
Pathetic. Who makes up these lies?
Someone who can count on the American people being badly educated, incurious, too hooked on reality TV (including a reality TV election) to pay much attention, and a media that will never, ever question him?
Just off the top of my head, I mean?
