Well, apparently there was at least one entity that understood the Obama administration was lying when it tried to suggest that the $400 million sent to Iran on the same day it released American hostages was not ransom.
That entity would be Iran, which of course now is asking for more ransom money for another hostage.
BECAUSE WHEN YOU TRAIN A DOG IT GETS A TREAT FOR PERFORMING A TRICK, IT WILL PERFORM THE TRICK AGAIN.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Nizar Zakka, a Lebanese citizen and permanent resident of the United States, said through his attorney Tuesday that Iranian officials in April told him it would take as much as $2 billion to ensure his release from captivity. In September, Iranian officials lowered that amount to $4 million, and told him that he was spared the death penalty but would remain in prison for 10 years until the payments is made.
Okay, at least the price for Zakka has been discounted.
Everyone knows you don’t pay ransom for hostages. You simply are creating a business that specializes in the manufacture of more hostages.
I’m trying to figure out what was the worst part of the last Obama-Iran ransom deal.
- That we paid ransom for hostages.
- That the administration kept it secret.
- That the administration then lied and said it wasn’t ransom.
- That the money goes directly toward the sponsoring of terrorism.
- That is was done in part to smooth the way for a deal that allows Iran to have nuclear weapons.
I mean, seriously, how bad can a Trump presidency be after this kind of crap?
