Americans everywhere were enraged this week when reports leaked claiming that Barack Obama paid a $400 million ransom to Iran in exchange for the release hostages on January 17. Though the White House has denied that this was a ransom payment, disturbing new video footage appears to confirm that this is exactly what it was.
According to Daily Mail, Iranian state-run media in Tehran filmed the arrival of a January 17 flight carrying $400 million in cash from the United States as well as the money itself. The footage was filmed for a documentary that aired the next month.
This came after Donald Trump was slammed for saying he’d seen “secret” footage of the money being offloaded from the airplane. Liberals claimed he was lying about this, but it looks like he may have been telling the truth after all.
The Iranian video aired on February 15 as part of the documentary ‘Rules of the Game.’ A narrator can be heard describing a money-for-hostages transaction over video clips of a plane on an airport tarmac in the middle of the night and a photo of a giant shipping pallet stacked with what appear to be banknotes.
“In the early morning hours of January 17, 2016 at Mehrabad Airport, $400 million in cash was transported to Iran on an airplane,” the narrator said.
“The Islamic republic made an expensive offer to the equation: the release of seven Iranian prisoners in the United States, $1.7 billion, and the lifting of sanctions against 16 Iranians who were prosecuted by the U.S. legal system with the unjust excuse of sanctions violations,” the narrator later said. “But this was not all the Iranians’ demands. Lifting sanctions against Sepah Bank was added to Iran’s list. All of this, in return for the release of only four American citizens: a win-lose deal that benefits the Islamic Republic of Iran and hurts the United States.”
