I'm sure fox failed to inform, but it was the talk of all the media in 1979.

Regarding the coup and the hostage crisis, you bet it was! But this whole thing about the Iranian deal and the US holding hostage Iranian funds is news to me.

This is actually quite shocking to read, to be honest with you. It seems Genesee shares my surprise- someone I have a hunch has followed this story closely.

Indeed, there has been plenty of criticism of the Iran deal. But not once do I recall seeing anyone point out that this was actually Iranian money to begin with.

I don't watch tv so I have to put the question out there: was this something covered by the traditional media with Breitbart and Foxnews dropping the ball? Or did the media has a whole fail?

It was discussed during one of the debates between Trump and Clinton that was shown on FOX...

What Limey isn't telling you is the rest of the story.

Quote:
The State Department’s response also noted that the United States “has a significant counterclaim against Iran arising out of the [Foreign Military Sales] program” seeking “substantial damages.” But the administration has declined to explain the nature and amount of its counterclaim, or why it paid Iran’s claim and left its own counterclaim for future litigation.

Moreover, the administration had more than $400 million in other claims against Iran, arising under the “Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act,” for court judgments it holds against Iran for terrorist attacks against Americans. That law specifically provided that “no funds shall be paid to Iran . . . from the Foreign Military Sales Fund, until [such claims] have been dealt with to the satisfaction of the United States.”

In a Jan. 29 letter, Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) asked why the administration had paid Iran its claim before Iran satisfied the VTVPA claims — which total $465 million plus interest.

I’ve pointed it out on LNF quite a few times.


But that’s because I’m a muzzie lovin’ Commie Fascist.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.
