Good morning Voice to America fans!
We’re investigating Obama’s 400 million dollar payment to Iran. This week the American public discovered the money was tied directly to the hostage release. We speak to our Iranian voice Hooshang about what this means for the Iran nuke deal and current sanction policies.
Then we’re Turkey-bound where Vice President Biden will be negotiating the possible extradition of Gulen, the man Turkish president Erdogan says ignited the attempted coup in Turkey earlier this summer. Now that the US government is paying ransoms, maybe it’s time we start extraditing people just because other governments say so.
And finally we’ll get a global reaction to the now infamous Olympic swimmer bathroom pit stop.
