Interesting.  The view count has doubled since I posted this.  It was 1605, now its over 3000 an hour and a half later.  This seems to be getting out into larger circulation all of a sudden.

Five hours later, its up to 13,000 views.  Hmmmm.

I see all that.  And it is convincing.

Yet we now have one of the released hostages saying that while they were waiting to be put on the plane and finally leave, he was told that the reason for the delay was that Iran was waiting for a plane (the one with the money) to land before they are set free.  If the plane does not come, they will never go.  

There are also reports that the DOJ was against this transfer of cash and the timing of the delivery. 

The bottom line is that it doesn't matter what anyone calls this deal except Iran.  If they really believe they got a ransom payment for these hostages, they will continue taking more hostages with the goal of receiving more cash.  Its what they think and do and is what matters most in the end.  It also seems that Iran has already taken more hostages since this release we are discussing here.

 U.S. Has Taught Iran a Lesson: Hostage Taking Pays

and with a little more digging in places I wouldn't ordinarily go to, I found the Iranian government video showing the pallet of cash and the hostages.  This video does vindicate Trump's claim of having seen a pallet of cash in a video related to the hostage release.

Here is the video separate from the link above out there on youtube since Feb for all to see, but by the count, few have watched.  At around the 11:00 mark the pallet of cash is shown.  Make of this what you will.

This $400M payment has been known since January.  I guess it just recently became convenient as a political foot ball.

It was Iran's money that we have held since 1979...  "In very simple terms, this payment is the first installment of a refund for a weapons purchase America never delivered. It starts in 1979, the year of the Iranian Revolution."   from the cited article.

The US did not pay a $400 million “ransom” to Iran. Here’s what actually happened.

This dumb controversy is everything wrong with our Iran debate.

Personal observation is the only way.You could see the evil Obama emerge from behind the mask if you were paying attention.It wasn't written about or focused on by the totally controlled MSM,but his actions became increasingly repugnant and are reaching new levels.Truly the enemy of our country and everything and anything good and decent.

He lost me when he demonstrated his loyalty when he dissed his "Hometown" hero Etta James for the talentless skank Beyonce to sing Etta's signature song at the inauguration and also pretended to be a fan of his "hometown" Chicago White Sox,but when asked after he made the claim,couldn't even name one member of "my team" as he put it.Oops.

 If he lies and is immoral about the important stuff like  baseball and music,think about how he handles the rest of the stuff.

A fantastic question. It's easy enough to Google what some folks report as best unbiased sources.
Despite that, it doesn't mean that we should be listening to TMZ, MSNBC, FOX, etc.

Even if there isn't a good site, there's no reason to waste our lives watching that crap and then trying to sort through the heavy prejudice. Turn off the TV instead - almost nothing they say makes a practical difference in our lives.
