The Biden Administration agreed to release five Iranian citizens held in the U.S., as well as $6 billion in frozen Iranian cash, in exchange for the release of five American citizens detained in Iran, according to PBS.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken signed off on the deal in the first week of September, but news of it broke on the 22-year anniversary of 9/11. The full details of the deal have yet to be released. It’s expected that the deal with cause significant blowback on President Joe Biden, as Iran continues to pose a significant threat to the U.S., particularly for troops and allies in the Middle East.

Congress was not informed of the decision until Monday.

In your opinion, is the prisoner swap and release of frozen funds to Iran a sound decision by the Biden Administration?
