</figure>Tehran (AFP) - Former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, rumoured to be planning a political comeback, has asked Barack Obama to return $2 billion of assets frozen in the US in a letter made public Monday.
Ahmadinejad wrote that despite early promises by the US president to improve ties with Iran “the same hostile policies along with the same trend of enmity were pursued”.
He specifically mentioned the $2 billion of Iranian foreign currency reserves seized from New York bank accounts earlier this year.
In April, the US Supreme Court confirmed an earlier ruling that the money should be used to compensate the families of victims of the 1983 bombing of a US Marines barracks in Lebanon and other incidents blamed on Iran.

Considering that Iran owes us money and that obama has goes out of his way to funnel money to Iran in spite of sanctions and the latest give away it should be Iran that should give us money.

Thoughts?
