Here’s The Iranian Video Of “Hostages for Pallets of Money” CNN and Washington Post Claim Doesn’t Exist…

This is a great example of the current state, and competence, of American Journalism.  Worse yet, this example shows the U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, didn’t even know what’s going on, and Vice-Presidential Candidate Tim Kaine also joins the crew of the clueless.

CNN and The Washington Post are both making an absurd attack Donald Trump story out of the most simple and easy to prove claim.

Iran cash 1

Donald Trump said there was video (yes, that’s a screen grab of the video above), put out by Iran, showing the United States sending pallets of cash in exchange for U.S. hostages.

Trump stated the Iranian’s were using the video to “embarrass the President“.  The Washington Post and CNN jumped on the Trump statement and immediately decried it as ridiculous and set out to prove the claim false:

(Via Washington Post) […]  Trump first mentioned this footage from the Iranian government during a rally in Daytona Beach, Fla., on Wednesday. Several senior U.S. officials involved in the Iran negotiations told the Associated Press they weren’t aware of any such video, and there was speculation that perhaps Trump saw it during one of the classified security briefings provided to presidential nominees, although those briefings have not yet begun. Secretary of State John F. Kerry, who was traveling in Argentina on Thursday, told reporters that he was unaware of any such video, according to the Associated Press.  (read more)

Here’s the presentation from Brian Stelter of CNN:

 >> Today’s WashPost headline: “Trump continues to claim, with no evidence, that Iran released a video of a cash transfer from the U.S.”
>> Tomorrow morning’s news tonight, via CBS: Hillary Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine tells Norah O’Donnell, “I have no idea what he’s talking about… It doesn’t exist.”
>> Now the pressure is on Trump’s running mate Mike Pence. He’s live on the “Today” show with Savannah Guthrie tomorrow morning. What will he say about this?

Here’s the video, and you can see the pallets of cash at 11:00 (prompted):

iran cash 3

You really should read the Jenna Johnson and Tom Bell article to see the scope of their shark jumping, and also fathom the insufferable inanity of our own government not to know immediately that Iran had indeed produced a full length feature documentary, airing on state run tv, showing exactly what Donald Trump said the Iranian’s aired:

Iran cash 2Iran cash 4

(Read the WaPo Story Here)

Now, we don’t know where Donald Trump might have caught the clip of the video, but we  do know it was widely discussed several months ago when the hostages were released.  The Iranian TV ran it with a title “The Rules of The Game” etc.  We saw it on BBC TV during a segment discussing the release of the prisoners.

Good Grief – It’s on You-Tube. AND, if we remember correctly, it was also hosted and discussed by MEMRI tv at one point.   Any reasonable journalist search for data would have found it easily, or at least the discussions of it.

The Video is also in a BBC Journalist twitter feed.  The short and the full version of the Iranian Documentary.

    Embarrassing, I need Glenn Beck’s Chalkboard timeline and US/Them Sharpie White Board to sort out the the specifics of this(another) negotiating with hostages/terrorism stupid deal…

    Soetoro tries to make Iran whole from Jimmy Carter days(400million 1979) by adding 1.3 billion in interest(Jan 17 2016 begin payment plan) and in good faith we get 3 people back.

    Anything else in this short form, besides cash instead of wire transfer because of “Sanctions” I haven’t been told?

  3. The nutcases over at TRS were claiming that Trump was releasing classified information by discussing this video.

    Now that the video has been shown not to be classified, they’re harping on the fact that the plane in the video is actually the hostage plane and not the one carrying the cash, so therefore Trump is either a liar or an idiot.

    The thing we have to understand is that these lunatics don’t care about the truth and are incapable of admitting when they’re wrong. They cannot be won over so the only thing to do is defeat them.

  4. All the hang-wringing for people who aren’t paying close attention. Please consider that the media has had the hostage plane video clip playing over and over and talking about the pallets of cash story. The MEDIA has fueled the confusion for people not paying attention because they need a video clip to cause the misdirection in their story. Classic bait-switch tactics. I have been watching the business channels all day every day during work hours and they are all doing it. The talk part and ticker don’t match the video they are playing on the screen. Like the red circle highlight of someone walking off the plane is supposed to indicate something related to the cash?
    The media is totally dishonest.

    ‘The Islamic republic made an expensive offer to the equation: the release of seven Iranian prisoners in the United States, $1.7 billion, and the lifting of sanctions against 16 Iranians who were prosecuted by the U.S. legal system with the unjust excuse of sanctions violations,’ the narrator intones.

    ‘But this was not all the Iranians’ demands. Lifting sanctions against Sepah Bank was added to Iran’s list. All of this, in return for the release of only four American citizens: a win-lose deal that benefits the Islamic Republic of Iran and hurts the United States.’

    ‘The Democrats’ concerns were mostly due to the fact that Obama’s rivals, the Republican presidential candidates, might find out the details of this deal through legal means,’ the narrator says. That, he adds, might lead them to ‘use them against Democrats at the time of the next presidential election – just like what happened to Jimmy Carter.’

      The Iranians didn’t film the money. There is a reason why the footage showing a pallet has a blurred out portion.The naughty Iranians lifted the footage from a 1991 video showing the procedures inside the US Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Washington DC.

      See 6:05 in the following video.

      Video description

      ‘Inside the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Washington D.C., 1991. The video features the assembly line of printing, cutting, and sorting machines, and the process of producing paper currency with a Koebau-Giori-De La Rue Intaglio Color 8 Printing Press. The machinery operated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.’

    I need to find the POTUS speech on this from yesterday…he said they used cash instead of bank transfer because of “Banking Sanctions”. So yea the Treason/Negotiating with “almost” hostages “almost” terrorists lawyer talk is one thing, but


    So the bank said “No, you are going to put your nation’s wealth into this with physical IOUs we loan to you” & not have it conveniently bounce on us.

    I really think you nailed it with this. Hemmer says ” …when you see video of an unmarked jet with pallets of euros…”, at the same time showing a video of a plane at night and the banner “US Sent Cash To Iran as Americans Released”, anyone can make the mistake that a plane of cash was being shown.

      He only said that the plane he saw on TV was the plane with prisoners.

      He did not say that he was wrong about the existence of the cash footage.

      It is now widely circulated on social media. A BBC reporter Tweeted it out yesterday. Now the US media including Sundance, Bret Baier, Hannity, DC Examiner have picked it up as well.

    Heard Barack Obama several times last night and this morning on radio news (CBS/ABC/FalseNews affiliates) talking about the Iran ransom for prisoners swap issue. He did NOTHING but stammer. try to deny, lots of pauses, several “uh’s” in every audio clip. His denials that it was paying ransom sounded too contrived, something about “payments for a 40 year old issue” or some such horsesh&t.
    Obama knows that Donald Trump has him cornered. Not even Valerie Jarrett can get Obama out of this one.
    Question that just came to me: Is Obama paying ransom like this an impeachable offense? Not that anybody in Congress has the “stones” to start proceedings—just asking for clarification.

    “The reason we had to give them cash is precisely because we’re so strict in maintaining sanctions,” Obama said.”


    Translation: The reason we had to use explosives to open the bank vault was because it’s illegal to steal money from a bank.

    Now does anyone not think that B. Hussein and Crooked Hillary haven’t shipped cash in foreign currencies into their own offshore bank accounts? Into their friends (failed Obamacare website building contracts) and cronies bank accounts?

    Six billion dollars is missing from the State Department. It went somewhere.

    It’s surreal to watch B. Hussein give a press conference detailing his crime as if it was nothing.

    Trump has absolutely, positively go after all these criminals after he is elected. There need to be tribunals and mass prosecutions. Starting with the B. Hussein, Crooked Hillary, the State Department, IRS, DOJ and DHS.

    I just listened to this Iran TV report. It is in Farsi. I am Iranian/American and speak fluent Farsi. I will try to translate and post again. Here is what I gathered:

    Iran requested $1.7 billion each for 16 hostages.
    They ended up agreeing to only releasing 4 hostages.
    They kept it a secret because the Obama administration was concerned that during political season it could be used against them like WHEN HOSTAGES WERE RELEASED DURING CARTER ADMINISTRATION. Many references to political impact similar to Carter.

        So are you saying it is likely that Obama paid for only 4 hostages, because it made it look like we were merely returning the Iranian money that we had been holding? and that any additional cash paid might have been an “obvious ransom payment”? Was that the Obama Administration strategy here?

          Good point. They had an excuse if it ever became public. That is why $400 million.
