Iran reportedly frees 4 U.S. prisoners, including Jason Rezaian, in swap


Very happy with this latest development. 

But it does bring this to mind. As it turned out this was basically another hostage situation with Iran winning again. Who has better negotiation skills Iran or the U.S.? Giving them $150 billion wasn't enough! We had to throw in six Iranian-Americans held on charges related to sanctions.

 They can read us like a book thanks to the guy who authored:


Iran has freed four prisoners from the United States, including Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian, Iran's semi-official FARS news agency reported Saturday, quoting Tehran's prosecutor.

According to FARS, it has freed Rezaian, Marine veteran Amir Hekmati and Christian pastor Saeed Abedini, who had been held on various charges. The news agency did not name the fourth person released.

The release is part of a prisoner swap deal in which the United States reportedly freed six Iranian-Am ericans held on charges related to sanctions against Iran, FARS said.
