On Wednesday Barack Obama lashed out at CBS reporter Major Garrett after he asked him about the four Americans left behind to languish in Iranian prisons.

Obama was defending his nuclear deal with Iran when Garrett asked him about the US hostages in Iran.
Obama: I got to give you credit Major for how you craft those questions. the notion that I’m content as I celebrate with American citizens languishing in Iranian jails. … Major, that’s nonsense and you should know better.
Of course, that is exactly what he did.
The Obama administration did nothing to free American hostages during their talks with the Iranian regime.
Now we know…
Obama released a top Iranian scientist as part of the deal but left the Americans to rot in hell in Iranian prisons.
The Times of Israel reported:
Mojtaba Atarodi, arrested in California for attempting to acquire equipment for Iran’s military-nuclear programs, was released in April as part of back channel talks, Times of Israel told. The contacts, mediated in Oman for years by close colleague of the Sultan, have seen a series of US-Iran prisoner releases, and there may be more to come.
The secret back channel of negotiations between Iran and the United States, which led to this month’s interim deal in Geneva on Iran’s rogue nuclear program, has also seen a series of prisoner releases by both sides, which have played a central role in bridging the distance between the two nations, the Times of Israel has been told.
In the most dramatic of those releases, the US in April released a top Iranian scientist, Mojtaba Atarodi, who had been arrested in 2011 for attempting to acquire equipment that could be used for Iran’s military-nuclear programs.
No wonder he didn’t want reporters talking about it!

22-CityView presents Barack Obama speaking at the Cambridge Public Library. Recorded on September 20,1995, this originally aired on Channel 37 Cambridge Municipal Television as an episode of the show “The Author Series.” In this episode Obama discusses his book “Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance,” which at the time had just been released a few months previously.
Most transparent administration evah! Recall his promise:
Ever since the moment he entered the White House his administration has been one of the most secretive and least transparent since the Nixon years and now we get even more evidence of this fact.
In 2012 Mark Levin’s organization filed a FOIA to the EPA to discover if they were hiding the implementation of certain regulations prior to the 2012 election. What did the EPA do?
Republicans, and conservatives that file into Tea Party meetings and rallies, Constitution Classes, and Libertarian gatherings, say time and time again that they are so tired of having to battle the failures of President Barack Obama. His failed policies are nearly more than they can digest.
He fails to understand economics, his failed Obamacare program is destroying health care in America, he fails to understand the underlying reasons behind why the government shutdowns occurred, he has failed in the Middle Class and he has failed to bring anybody out of poverty. Failure after failure after failure after failure. He even fails to stand against an enemy determined to destroy us, fails to connect jihadism to Islam, and has failed to properly apply America’s might against an enemy he is unwilling to admit.
I am here to tell you that President Barack Obama has failed at nothing. From his point of view, he is a total success. He is, however, as accused, failing to name the enemy, as so many folks on the right-of-center accuse him of when it comes to the worldwide battle we see emerging around the globe. However, who we see to be the enemy, and who he views to be the enemy, are two different things.
