$400 Million for 4 Hostages
I'm no math genius, but that's... hmmm...a nice, even figure of $100 million per hostage!
Just another in a long, long line of endless coincidences, I'm sure.
The White House denies it was a ransom payment. And they may be telling the truth for once.
The object was to lavish money on the Ayatollah. Obama only took the hostages back because he needed a plausible excuse to send his Supreme Leader a pallet full of untraceable cash for funding terrorists.
Sometimes you just have to suck it up and free some hostages to get what you really want.
