Ransom: Iranian hostage release was tied to $400 million

Yes, the release of four American hostages by Iran was tied to $400 million.

It was a ransom payment.

From AP:
The Obama administration said Thursday that a $400 million cash payment to Iran seven months ago was contingent on the release of a group of American prisoners.

It is the first time the U.S. has so clearly linked the two events, which critics have painted as a hostage-ransom arrangement.
Embarrasment such as this debacle won't occur during a Trump presidency.

Does this mean that - gasp! - Obama lied about it?
