What would you do for pallets of cash totaling 400 Million Dollars?
#1
When you really want a crises to go away you might get desperate. When you are close to making a deal which you hope will cement your legacy; the last thing you want is a POW crises looming over your head with the country you are negotiating with. This pandering gutless obozo paid 400 million tax dollars to his enemy before they could even negotiate. A faulty boat motor and terrible leadership wound up costing 400 Million Dollars. Scratchinghead Maybe the motor worked all along?

WASHINGTON—The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans detained in Tehran, according to U.S. and European officials and congressional staff briefed on the operation afterward.
Wooden pallets stacked with euros, Swiss francs and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said.
The money represented the first installment of a $1.7 billion settlement the Obama administration reached with Iran to resolve a decades-old dispute over a failed arms deal signed just before the 1979 fall of Iran’s last monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

The settlement, which resolved claims before an international tribunal in The Hague, also coincided with the formal implementation that same weekend of the landmark nuclear agreement reached between Tehran, the U.S. and other global powers the summer before.
“With the nuclear deal done, prisoners released, the time was right to resolve this dispute as well,” PresidentBarack Obama said at the White House on Jan. 17—without disclosing the $400 million cash payment.
Senior U.S. officials denied any link between the payment and the prisoner exchange. They say the way the various strands came together simultaneously was coincidental, not the result of any quid pro quo.
“As we’ve made clear, the negotiations over the settlement of an outstanding claim…were completely separate from the discussions about returning our American citizens home,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said. “Not only were the two negotiations separate, they were conducted by different teams on each side, including, in the case of The Hague claims, by technical experts involved in these negotiations for many years.”

Iranian negotiators on the prisoner exchange said they wanted the cash to show they had gained something tangible.

Looks like they got what they wanted.

Someone is paying attention  Yeah3

I believe the going rate is between 10 & 30% depending on your nuclear program. In this case we must assume its pushing 31%.
