Trump Releases Statement on 'Failed Leadership' of Obama, Hillary


Kris Paronto, one of the heroes of Benghazi, joined Stuart Varney today to react to the bombshell report that the U.S. government airlifted $400 million to Iran as four detained Americans were released by the Islamic republic.

Paronto said that by paying this "ransom," the Obama administration is endangering Americans.

"When you pay ransoms for anybody that's been kidnapped overseas - whether it be terrorists, whether it be a country that sponsors terrorism - you're making it a business now," he explained.

Paronto said that not only does this "condone" Iran's actions, it makes America appear weak.

"It just validates that it is a big business. Kidnapping is a big business for terrorists and for anyone that wants to make money," he said. "If the U.S. shows that they're going to pay, then they're going to make this a bigger business."
