    Freed the day Regan was sworn in.

    Sam, thanks for the heads-up on Baer's book. Have put on the 'to read someday list' which is fairly long.

    I'll put up US$100 to send our resident socialist, Hedge, to the negotiate with the bastards. Anyone else in?
    I second that emotion. My platform will be "keep up the great work lads, have some candies" and then I will give everyone candy. Which will still make for less danger to USians than the ham fisted imperialism we've been doing in the region so far. Paypal the money to devinmb@aol.com

    Wow, some of you must have failed US History.

    Reagan did not lay the groundwork for the release of the hostages in 1981. He did nothing to bring it about. That was the work of Carter's Deputy Secretary of State Warren Christopher, commonly known the Algiers Accords, during Carter's administration.

    The fact that the hostages' freedom came minutes into Reagan's first term is irrelevant. It was a matter of timing: Reagan simply signed the final document, which was handed to him because time had come to change presidents.

    Oh and Reagan began violating the Algiers Accords immediately afterward.

    How politics blinds people to recorded history never ceases to amaze me, especially when it comes to certain a GOP golden calf. But that is what happens when you let yourselves get taken in by the fantasy worlds portrayed by the politicians.

    Shoot me for quoting Wikipedia.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran_hostage_crisis

    On November 2, the Iranian parliament finally set forth formal conditions for the hostages' release and eight days later Deputy Secretary of State Warren Christopher arrived in Algiers with the first U.S. reply setting off a slow motion diplomatic shuffle between Washington, Algiers and Tehran.
    The 1980 election was decided on 4 November. Regan was president elect.

    We can disagree on whether this was 'relevant'.

    LOL at you calling anyone politically blind.

    Reagan's rhetoric before being in office and the POSSIBILITY of what he might do and his administration's ACTIONS after the election are two different strategic concerns of the IRANIANS. Your political lens has you looking at the world as if US actions alone determines history. This lens is shared by partisans of both sides in this country. Hence, IRAN's DECISION is reduced to a simplistic trembling in fear.

    LOL at all of you looking through your own lenses and then saying "No U."

    I'm going to use that same lens and say:

    "I think 8 Billion dollars, that was frozen, and their fucked up the economy had more to do with anything related to Reagan or Carter.

    LOL, it won't change that way. It didn't with Gore, even though everyone was screaming change. Now, if Obama wins while losing that ****'ll be fixed in a heart beat.
