Thank you for this news. Please visit and read my Iran predictions which are now coming true.

Mike Fincher says:

If Obama had made this prisoner swap, conservatives would be spending the whole day claiming that Masoud Soleimani was a secret spy for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard and how dare Obama negotiate with our enemies.

Why aren’t we going to war yet

Stephen Young says:

Meanwhile former American marine still held in Russia! Shouldn't Trump exchanged the Russians NRA spy instead of just letting her go after 7 months in jail. Let's not make trumps buddy putin angry while at the same time Russian hackers have stolen hundreds of millions of American dollars and Russia will never extradite them since Russian government gets a cut of the profits. Why are we being nice to these cowards!

Thanks to President Trump, and you all know it.

Wolf Among Sheep says:

The U.S will release a researcher who was probably detained for a good reason and Iran will release some kid who didn’t even do anything.
