The Wall Street Journal reported that the mysterious $400 million payment to Iran was quid pro quo for the release of American hostages – which was fiercely denied by Barack Obama and the White House.

“We do not pay ransom. We didn’t here, and we won’t in the future.” – President Barack Obama

On Thursday, State Department Spokesman John Kirby confirmed that the $400 million payment was held until the prisoners were released by Iran – which flew in the face of Obama’s previous “it was just a coincidence” denials. Did the United States pay Iran ransom for the release of US prisoners – or was it simply leverage? Is there even a difference?
