  1. "5 terrorists released from U.S. prisons"


  3. Iranian Americans who regularly visit Iran love Iran. They know the risks, but think that since they are pro-Regime nothing will happen. Also they are probably happy to be helping Iran obtain 6 Billion dollars.

  4. USA pays Cash for hostages. What a disgrace.

  5. Lester must be happy to meet with such a great leader. What a joke, the USA paying ransom payments. Weak cowards in DC.

  6. Wasn’t this scenario played out in the Medal of Honor game WARFIGHTER???🤣 MENENDEZ WE KNOW ITS YOU

  7. idc, i would let them rot. they went of their own free will and probably no business going there , no news is worth that if you cant rely on getting out safely, and 6bil in sanctions??? may as well hand it to putins gun dealers

  8. Biden is a joke worldwide, impeach that traitor then imprison him.

  9. Not sure if this is the truth.
    Because NBC has thrown Falsehoods
    according to Mss. Walker interview with the ex president, trying to sell wrong information, pretending that lying and criminal behavior is normal.
    He had the Malicious Intent in installing Martial Law in the country at the time he lost the 2020 elections, and take the country by Force against the People's vote.
    Historic Criminal Malicious Intent.
    And Now some big Media outlets are giving him a pedestal to spread Falsehoods and poisonous division with violence by this blood thirsty cult, which Mr. Trump is the Leader.

    We the independent voters will vote Mr. Trump Out!.
    After that, this people will be remember as Complicit criminals.
    Next step.


  10. Five American terrorists being freed. 🙄

  11. What, did the americans? do…. huh….

  12. When are American citizens going to stop going to enemy countries?

  13. watch your 6, Taiwan, that China is not rushing your east coast with planes while positioning subs on another side. Small countries are NOT "fruit"
    for larger countries to "pick"

  14. Typical Biden. Making deals and negotiating with terrorists

  15. So 1.2 billion for each what a bargain!

  16. It is interesting how the news brushes over the fact that the US has also imprisoned and is releasing Iranians in the deal.

  17. I’m surprised the Biden administration even cared about these Americans given how this administration hates Americans.

  18. Leave it to the Democrats to step on every cow pie in the corral. They are giving the Iranian government six billion for five people who are not even Americans. The Iranians obviously hate Americans. So why do we let them into our country?

    That’s precisely why Trump will win again: Americans want leaders with guts! You’ll never see that in any Democrat!

  19. Biden makes some terrible deals!

  20. Each person is worth more than a billion dollars?
