Iran Hostage Crisis: Conspiracies Persist

Thirty-four years ago, the Iranian Hostage Crisis began. And while a recent Hollywood film, Argo, told one story about the crisis, another story persists that implicates former President Ronald Reagan in a scheme to keep Americans as hostages longer to ensure victory in the 1980 US Presidential elections. This is a claim repeatedly made by the former President of Iran himself. RT’s Sam Sacks takes a closer look at what really happened during the Iranian Hostage Crisis.
