Pearl slams hostage deal with Iran

Auburn men’s basketball head coach Bruce Pearl said the world got less safe as a result of President Joe Biden’s decision to release $6 billion to Iran in exchange for hostages

The State Department announced plans Monday to release five Iranians being held by the U.S. and release $6 billion in seized oil sale revenue to Iran in exchange for five American citizens imprisoned by Iran.

“The world just got even more dangerous by another pathetic, weak U.S. foreign policy decision,” Pearl said on X (formerly Twitter). “Rather than giving Iran 6 Billion, I would give em a 6 days. Take another hostage and you get 6 hours. We just made Iran’s terrorist regime stronger! Free their people! Know your opponent!”

Pearl has expressed conservative political views and is an outspoken supporter of Israel.
