When the U.S. enbassy in Iran was invaded and more than 50 Americans were taken hostage, how did the United States respond?

-The Senate declared war on Iran and President Carter ordered troops to invade the country.
-The United States chose to isolate itself and not get involved in the conflict.
-The United States government purchased more oil from Ian hoping to convince them to release the hostages.
-President Carter negotiated with Iran to have the hostages released.

I chose the second option. It was a tough choice because the fourth seemed also correct. There were negotiations, albeit secret, because they were released after Reagan was inaugerated.
