The Payoff

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 15:08

Michael Ledeen with a reminder of why Saberi was released by Iran.

Why does the Mafia release hostages? Because they have collected the ransom. So to all those who are looking for subtle reasons for the Saberi release, take it from someone who has been there. Iran collected its ransom. The mullahs aren’t subtle, they’re mafiosi. We probably won’t know for a while what they got, who delivered it, and who worked the deal. But anyone familiar with the workings of the Islamic Republic has to assume that there was a payoff.

I can just picture the meetings between the Mullahs and Obama’s people: It’s The Godfather without the Sicilian accents. Or the good food.
