    I dont remember what I thought about it at the time. With no cable TV, no phone videos, and no internet we didnt have real time news. It was so far away geographically it didnt affect us. Of course the media in the U.S. showed Iran as the villains.

    I was disappointed when Carter didnt rescue the hostages by helicopter but as I recall, someone from England did rescue some of them.

    But Carter did negotiate for their release and the Iranians decided to release them a day after Reagan was in office just to spite Carter because Carter was friendly to the Shah. He invited the Shah to America for medical care.
