Who do you believe??

"The U.S. has denied reports of a prisoner swap deal with Iran that would have resulted in the release of $7 billion in frozen Iranian funds.

The initial report broke Sunday on Lebanese pro-Iranian TV channel Al Mayadeen, claiming that U.S. and Iranian officials had agreed to the exchange.

Iran would have released four Americans accused of spying in exchange for four Iranian prisoners in the U.S., as well as the frozen $7 billion, according to Reuters.

The story cited an unnamed Iranian official, but a State Department spokesman told Fox News that no deal has been struck."

I dealt with the aftermath of the Iranian Hostage crisis.

He was an object a proctologist would object to.

That's a bold statement.

But tell us more. I was a little kid when that went down.

Forgive me, but I'd rather not.   It is a rather sore spot in my past.

 

Understood. An experience so few have endured. I suppose it's better that way. I actually know a handful of people that were held against their will for several years, and have heard their stories, but none by psycho religious nuts.
