    OK, hostages on a plane waiting to take off. What are they waiting for? Another plane to land. Which plane? An unmarked plane loaded with pallets of unmarked currency. That plane lands and the hostages take off. How is this NOT a ransom payment ? If it is then just say it is! Why keep lying to us???

    BTW three more Americans have since been taken hostage. Are they onto something?

    You gotta catch the last part of the above video. A sitting president making a proclamation against a candidate! Seems akin to a Papal Bull!

    Oh my! Simple scandalous. Seriously? Do you really think this is the first time a President has spoken out against another party's Presidential candidate?

    To outright dismiss a candidate? Possibly. A charge of "unfit" coming from him is pretty interesting!

    That shoe has fit Obama for 8 years and still does. Now he passes the stinky sneakers on to his candidate of choice!
    @scisports what do you make of this $400,000,000 payout! Do you believe it is an ill-timed payment of a debt? Did you know that the word gullible is not in the dictionary?

    Do you not read the facts? 35 year old arbitration case that was ruled in January this year. This is the first installment of the $1.7B settlement. Not linked to hostages. Classic political to presume guilty by coincidence

    Believe what you will, the circumstances stink to high heaven. A lot like the chance meeting of Billary and LL on the tarmac in Phoenix! It is an old saying but it certainly holds true for this bunch: How do you tell when they are lying? Their lips are moving!

    Yep you're right. You know, maybe this entire Trump campaign is a sham to get Hillary the Presidency. The Clintons were seen schmoozing with Trump at one of his weddings, and a lot of Trump's past leanings have been more left than right....
    Conspiracy theorists unite!!

    That is not what Iran said. They said it was a ransom. When you pay a debt you make it public. You would not make that payment in unmarked bills delivered on a secret flight. The hostages plane did not take off till the plane with 400 million landed. Sounds like every hostage payoff I have ever seen in
    a movie. BTW what flavor of Koolaid do you prefer?

    And everything was on the up and up with Iran Contra as well, right?

    Even with all the media coverage and social media, we don't know even 1/4 of what actually happens. Regardless of whose in office. We sit here with very limited data trying to rationalize some story, each side trying to vilify the other. National security and foreign policy issues are largely kept secret for a reason.

    You know what they say about ASSuming......

    Bernie was up for forty large just for his mother in law. To tell the truth he could cover the 400 large too. Dude is loaded.... and hooked up. I guess given the circumstances I wouldn't be all smiley either but really wasn't like it was his mom.

    When was the last time you paid a credit card bill with unmarked bills by dropping it off at the bank with your license plate removed. Do you know the definition of a useful idiot?

    It is not what I don't know that bothers me about Obama and Hillary, it is what I DO know! Pretty sure knowing more would make it worse. We will see what wikileaks does in the future.

    It's past the point of funny for me. How people rationalize this stuff is unbelievable; almost like Stockholm Syndrome.

    The truth is probably not as sensational or as straightforward as it seems. If it comes out that there is no Hague settlement and there was no good reason to pay in foreign bills (seems to be linked with the sanctions imposed against Iran), and instead it is proven to be ransom, I'll be the first to eat crow!

    I'll shoot you one sense your afraid of guns but you have to clean it and pluck it. What proof do you need. The prisoners said the Iranians told them they were holding them until the plane with the money shows up and if it does not then they could not leave. It was payed in untraceable foreign currency. The Iranians took three more prisoners and demanded more money the next day. It was a ransom.

    If it was then it's reprehensible, no doubt.
