Irainian Hostage Crisis

by: Fred Tottenham

The cause of the Iranian Hostage Crisis was President Jimmy Carter decision to allow Iran's deposed Shah. Another reason the Hostage took action cause of the dramatic way for the student revolutionary to declare.The Hostage took place in 1979 in which 52 U.S citizens were held hostage for 444 days. it started hours after president Ronald Reagan delivered his inaugural Adress.


A lot of people thought that Hostage Crisis cost Jimmy Carter a second term as president. But that wasn't the case, the Iranians held the American diplomats hostage and tortured them like dogs! the crisis dominated the headlines and news broadcast. They also made them look weak and ineffectual.
