The magazine, U.S. News and World Report, is respectable, but with a right-wing bias. Right-wing media in the U.S. have a tendency to publish reports that back the Republican administration claims. This is one of them.

The questions about this story are:

a) Do the Iranian government has enough money to pay that bounty?

b) How will the the bounty hunters claim their prize?

I don't think Iran wants to spite the US too much after seeing its southern neighbour invaded...  Although I think the Iranians would put up more of a fight.

I don't know many might see the US as liberators, and then hope that the US will leave them to their own devices once liberated.

how ouwld you even pay such a bounty to a bunch of scattered people who are just as likely to hate Iran as much as the US? Sounds like BS to me
