What a difference it makes when the media does what it is supposed to in our constitutional republic! A free press is supposed to hold officials accountable. Tragically, that mostly hasn’t happened during the Obama years.
In recent days, however, the Wall Street Journal revealed that the Obama administration paid a $400 million ransom to the jihadist Iranian government for several American hostages. President Obama and his flacks insisted no such thing had happened.
Well, yesterday, the Journal published the details of the carefully synchronized transaction that resulted in the release of the Americans as pallets of cash were turned over to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps – the mullahs’ terrorism arm.
The State Department’s spokesman finally confirmed the obvious: Team Obama did pay ransom.
It’s bad enough that we have been repeatedly lied to. Worse yet, we are all now potential hostages.
