Dr. Sebastian Gorka of the Marine Corps University was on the "Hannity" show Monday night when he was asked if America has sent the signal that when you take Americans hostage, there will be negotiations.
"Absolutely Sean, we gave away the farm for a Starbucks gift card. We sent a very clear message that this nation (Iran), which is the greatest state sponsor of terrorism for the last 30 years, has carte blanche," Dr. Gorka said.
"We've sent a message 'Iran, you can get away with murder' literally Sean," he said.
Dr. Gorka went on to reference that many of the attacks carried out by insurgent forces in Iraq during the war were often supplied and funded by the Iranian government.
Several veterans from the Iraq war have come out and said that they unequivocally know that the weapons used against them were delivered from and made in Iran.
