A video was posted on Twitter, depicting “pallets of cash” from a special delivery from the US. to Iran.
Iranian officials are quoted as saying “this was just part of the ‘expensive price’ to release Americans.”
The footage, which is from an Iranian documentary published a few months ago, contradicts claims by Obama administration officials maintaining that the payment was completely unrelated to the release of these U.S. hostages, despite the payment having been supplied on the same day these individuals were freed by Iran.
Iran experts commented that it is impossible to verify if the images show the same pallets of cash transferred by the Obama administration.
