Freed Iranian Hostage Reveals That They Could Not Leave Iran Until Another Plane Had Arrived And Left
FOX News: Freed American Hostage: We Waited All Night at the Airport
Pastor Saeed Abedini, one of four American hostages released from Iran on Tuesday, joined the FOX Business Network’s Trish Regan to describe the night he was set free.
“First of all, I’m so thankful for my freedom,” he said. “There is nothing like a life of being free.”
Abedini said he and the others waited a full night in the airport. According to police, they were waiting for another plane to arrive.
“They told us ‘you’re going to be there for 20 minutes, but it took like hours and hours,’” Abedini said. “We slept at the airport.”
Abedini said the plane and pilot were there, and everyone was ready to go, but they didn’t leave until 10 a.m. the next day. They eventually flew to the U.S. in the plane that had been sitting at the airport overnight.

Update: Freed Iranian Hostage: Iranians Told Me They Were Waiting For Another Plane To Arrive Before Letting Us Go (Breitbart)
WNU Editor: Who and what was that other plane .... Pastor Saeed Abedini does not know and the White House does not want to answer that question. But here is an even simpler question ..... and no one in the Administration, from President Obama on down, wants to answer .... did the hostages' plane leave before or after the plane arrived carrying pallets full of $400 million worth of non-US cash?
What's my take .... if that money was not delivered I doubt that these American hostages would have been released. The Iranians wanted their money back .... and the only leverage that they had were these hostages, plus President Obama's desire to have a deal. On a side note .... this is a big story, but the main stream media's coverage of it has been abysmal. They do not want to cover it .... they just want to cover Trump 24/7.
