    The funniest possible ending to this swap, completely possible, is that the U.S. releases the Iranian prisoners in the U.S. from federal custody and once the U.S. prisoners in Iran are out the U.S. re arrests the Iranian prisoners in the U.S. before they can leave the U.S.

    For those expressing concern about this money, it's important to clarify that the funds in question were frozen by the US and originally intended for payment in exchange for Iranian oil. This isn't the US providing aid or giving ransom to Iran so there's no need to CRY. Just Chill.

      Thanks! So many people either didn't watch and/or listen to the video or they are just willfully ignorant.

    Iran will rightfully spend the funds to improve the well-being (school, hospital, social programs) and protection (drones, missiles, and nuclear research) of its citizens. They will make a few accounting mistakes just like the Pentagon.

    Well,we can't say that Iran has got that money as ransom.Actually, Iran has got back its money which was frozen by the USA.

    This was an obvious move by the US to soften relations with Iran. The Iranians will see through this move and will take advantage of it while still maintaining close relations with Russia. The US has little interest in it's citizens abroad unless it benefits them politically. Gonzalo Lira, an American citizen, is still being held incommunicado in an Ukrainian prison with no help from the US. It does not benefit them politically to help him.
