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


ed note (tony)…Unbelievable lies and demagoguery about Iran by the JMSM, as to be expected. These are the facts;

 

  • When the U.S. Embassy was taken over in 1979, the Carter Administration declined to deliver weapons the Shah had ordered and paid $400 million for.

  • When the Iran deal was struck, it was agreed that the United States would refund the $400 million with interest accrued over the years, for a total of $1.7 billion.

  • As a good-faith gesture, Iran released hostages at the same time the agreement went into effect.
