On what planet does Barack Obama think the American people live? We fly $400 million in cash to Iran on an unmarked cargo plane and we’re supposed to believe that it is coincidental with the release of four hostages who just happened to be waiting for the plane to land in order to be released? You can’t make up this stuff.
Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey has completely nailed this episode for what it is, even to the point of identifying the readily apparent reason that the ransom had to be in nontraceable cash–because it was intended to benefit the Quds Force, the unit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard that has such a need because it is primarily focused on Iran’s support of terrorism. And he poses a question that the President should answer to the American people–precisely what legitimate interest of the United States is served by the clandestine delivery of this cash to the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism?
