    President Obama paid a ransom for Iranian prisoners who were recently released. Of course, he denies this but the hostage on the plane said that his captors were waiting for another plane to arrive, the one with $400 million, before they could take off and release him.

    Apparently taking American hostages is good business these days.

    What Obama does with his money is his business.

    It was his money right?

    Technically, yes.
    He'd previously organized a community bake and rummage sale; these funds were from those proceeds.

    no he didn't.

    he gave iran's money back (it's their money that they gave the US for weapons that were not delivered because the shah was deposed) as one of the many parts of the deal with Iran. basically the US gave back what they stole.

    Technically.

    If they tax, regulate, fine and license enough community bakes and rummage sales he could pay all the ransoms.

    Technically.

    It's a bake sale wherein everyone if forced to purchase a cake.

    And each cake costs $7,000.

    That's a whole lot closer to the truth than we should be venturing.

    At least while trying to maintain the blinkers.

    One thing is for sure, people like you going around saying that ransoms get paid, will certainly increase the number of kidnappings - even if you are, as usual, lying.

    Yes, taxpayer money is his money to do with as he sees fit.

    It's good to be king.

    Yes, this post of mine will cause more kidnappings of Americans globally.

    Obama paying the ransom will have no effect on this

    Thanks for that.

    I think you're on to something here, whodey. I bet North Korea is pursuing a nuclear weapons programme so that later, when they stop their program and make a deal with the US, they can have their assets unfrozen. Brilliant!

    that's the spirit, don't let minor things like facts stop your fun.

    keep shouting them lies. those that don't bother to fact check only care about volume.

    Yeah, decades ago Iran gave the US 400 mil for weapons that we never delivered and now we gave it back. Remember the part where it was THEIR money we are giving back for weapons we never delivered. They made the mistake of thinking the US honorable.

    So when the hostages were taken that was part of the deal so Iran paid themselves with their own money.

    Here is the nice part for the US. We are giving them the exact amount they gave us for a deal we never delivered on but that money went into an interest bearing account so we benefitted from that money by collecting interest for 40 odd years.

    So where is this paying ransom money?

    Why do I get the feeling if it had been Bush Sr or Jr none of this would ever have come up. In fact I KNOW it would never have been brought up, not by Refumblicans for sure.
