during the obama adminstration, iran freed some US hostages and simultaneously,  Obama gave enormous amounts of money to Iran,
$400M at the time and $1.3B during the next 19 days
obama assured us that the 2 events were unconnected. Just a coincidence.
Reports that the hostages had to wait until the money landed were of course fake news

now a british-iranian woman is held there (and iran doesn't recognize dual citizenship)
“An outstanding debt owed by the U.K. to Tehran will be transferred to the Central Bank of Iran in the coming days. The payment ... has nothing to do with Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s case,” Hamid Baeedinejad wrote on his Telegram channel.

My PhD supervisor was in Iran when the Shah was toppled. He had great difficulty getting out of the country.
