Sweetheart Deal for Iran: U.S. to free seven Iranians from U.S. prisons in swap

Is there any else we can give Iran?  Some Chelow kabab maybe?
Yahoo News reports the United States will release seven Iranian nationals currently serving jail terms in a prisoner swap with Iran, the English language service of the Islamic Republic's official IRNA news agency reported on Saturday.

"Prosecutor Abbas Jaafari told IRNA that four dual nationality Iranian-American prisoners, passing prison terms in Iran, will be exchanged with seven Iranian nationals languishing at the U.S. jails," it reported.
It said the swap included a clause under which the United States would no longer pursue the extradition of 14 Iranians for alleged involvement in purchasing arms in the United States for supply to Iran.

It used to be U.S. policy not to negotiate with Terrorists.  That's all changed with Obama who doesn't mind playing footsie with them.
