Barack Obama later told reporters this was not a ransom payment.
Former US Iranian Hostage Saeed Abidini told FOX Business Network today the Iranian regime WOULD NOT let his plane leave Tehran until the ransom plane arrived.
US officials held the ransom cash until the hostages were released.
Two days after Obama sent Iran the ransom cash the US government wired 13 individual payments for $99,999,999.99 , each with an independent MICR, totaling $1,299,999,999.87.
Cash from Obama’s ransom payment to Iran is being traced to terrorist groups in the region.
