Freed Iranian Hostage: Iranians Told Me They Were Waiting For Another Plane To Arrive Before Letting Us Go https://t.co/RQOGn86cAI

Pastor Saeed Abedini tells Trish Regan Fox Business his side of the his and the other 3 Americans’ release, and it smells of waiting for the ransom money ‘drop’.
And shortly after the four Americans were released, Iran took two more Americans hostage … and we aren’t even counting the US Sailors Iran claimed were in their waters and detained and publicly shamed.
My thoughts, Iran is taking Americas ‘hostage’ as some sort of leverage in order to force payments on the agreed to billions of dollars agreed upon in the Iran nuclear deal. This then turns portions of that money into blackmail or ransom payments by this means.
In NYT & on MSNBC this AM, no mention of hostage Saeed Abedini who said they couldn't depart Iran until another plane landed. #Omission bias
