State Dept. admits $400 million cash to Iran was ransom, puts Americans overseas in mortal danger

Aug. 18, 2016, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to the State Department admitting the $400 million cash to Iran was in exchange for hostages:

“The State Department is now saying the $400 million cash payment to Iran was contingent on American prisoners’ release. This admission after lying to the American people about cash for hostages shows that even after almost 8 years in office, Obama’s foreign policy team is too dangerous to be trusted. This must come as devastating news to every American who have loved ones working or studying overseas, as Obama has now put a price on all their heads.”
