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.

The Sharknado star’s abdomen looks like that of a 90-year-old, and her backside resembles a emaciated 121-year-old.. A trip to the closest McDonald’s and then a jaunt over to the nearest chiropractor STAT might be in order.

Okay guys we have a frightening story here as a young California couple has gone missing while on a biking trip in Peru. Jamie Neal and her boyfriend Garrett Hand, both 25, left for the trip back in November, however according to friends and family they haven’t been heard from since January 25, 2013.
Two young bike enthusiasts from California have disappeared while on a biking “trip of a lifetime” through South America, according to friends and the U.S. State Department.
Jamie Neal and her boyfriend, Garrett Hand, both 25, embarked on their journey at the end of November, or early December, according to Neal’s boss, Jeff Jerge. Neal works at the Pedaler, Jerge’s El Sobrante, Calif., bike shop.
“I’m beyond worried,” Jerge told ABCNews.com. “I’m super concerned.”
Jerge said that Neal and Hand had known each other for a while and began dating and planning their South American trip last summer.
“It’s kind of like it was a dream trip for them,” Jerge’s wife, Kim Jerge, told ABCNews.com. “It’s their first big adventure.”
Neal has worked at the bike shop for more than two years. Hand is a fisherman in Alaska.
“They wanted to originally ride from here to South America, and we thought going through Mexico was particularly dangerous, so we talked to them about skipping that, and they did decide to fly down to South America and start their trip there,” Jeff Jerge said. “At the point they wanted to leave, we all felt it was potentially dangerous.” Source.
Let’s all send these kids our hopes and prayers for a safe return!
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden was visiting a yogurt shop in Greenfield, Milwaukee, but he thought it was an “ice cream shop”. Biden was corrected by the manager that he was in a yogurt shop, and then he participated in some photo ops and he handed out yogurt cones over the counter. Biden was smiley and happy until the store manager declined Biden’s money, when Biden asked how much his cone cost. The manager said there was no charge and it “was on the store”, but the manager then piped up this surprising remark to Biden: “Lower our taxes, we’ll call it even.” [I give you free yogurt-you lower our taxes in exchange! Haha!]
Biden then replied, “Why don’t you say something nice instead of being a smart ass all the time?”
The manager was interviewed after Biden left the shop and he confessed this about Biden: “He was really nice, he’s got a great personality. I don’t think he liked my comment but then later on he whispered in my ear “just kidding”.”
