  1. Well he did handle the kidnapping of our embassy personal and the capture of our embassy pretty good. He locked himself up in the white house till his term was over.

    They knew to give them back when Regan was elected.

  2. It’s worth reading about. People at the very top of Reagan’s candidacy promised and then smuggled arms to Iran in exchange for an Iranian promise to hold the prisoners until after the election, which simultaneously made Carter look helpless and Reagan look heroic when they were released hours after his inauguration.
