Christmas news dump: 36yrs later, SURVIVING IRANIAN HOSTAGES to be PAID up to $4.4 MILLION each! (Hidden in Omnibus spending bill)....
The 53 Americans taken hostage at the U.S. Embassy in Iran in 1979 have finally won compensation after battling more than three decades for restitution. The victims or their estates will receive up to $4.4 million each because of the $1.14 trillion spending bill President Barack Obama signed into law on Friday,

The law financing the reparations was included in the omnibus bill that was passed by both houses of the Republican-controlled Congress. It overrides the agreement that freed the hostages in 1981, which barred them from seeking restitution, the Times reports.

If it makes you feel any better, this would be like $89 in 1979 money.

Inflation is a wunnerful thing.
