Republicans asked Tehran to delay prisoner swap until after presidential election – Iranian admiralMembers of the US Republican Party asked Iranian officials to delay a recent prisoner swap until after the November presidential election because they were worried about Obama winning a public victory ahead of the polls, according to an Iranian admiral.
“We were carrying out negotiations with the Obama administration, when representatives of the Republican Party got in touch with us,” Admiral Ali Shamkhani, secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran, told France 24. “As a favor, they asked us to do what we could to hinder the talks and to push them back until after the next US presidential elections – in other words, after President Obama’s departure.”
I don't know how true this is since names weren't given but if it is this was stupid of them. I think the Iranians would hate it if we had a republican president and wouldn't be above making something like this up.
