Obama Admin Paid Iran $700-M a Month Since the Nuclear Was Inked or $10-B+
“Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”
There ought to be an investigation into whether Obama’s actions regarding Iran, where the mullahs have ordered the people to chant “Death to America!” in the mosques every Friday, constitute treason.
This money is going to pay for a great deal of jihad terror.
The Obama Administration has paid Iran more than $10-B in gold, cash, and other assets since Y 2013, according to Iranian officials, who disclosed that the White House has been intentionally deflating the total amount paid to the Islamic Republic.
Senior Iranian officials late last week confirmed reports that the total amount of money paid to Iran over the past 4 years is in excess of $10-B, a figure that runs counter to official estimates provided by the Obama White House.
The latest disclosure by Iran, which comports with previous claims about the Obama Administration obfuscating details about its cash transfers to Iran, including a $1.7-B cash payment included in a ransom to free Americans, sheds further light on the White House’s back room dealings to bolster Iran’s economy and preserve the Iran nuclear agreement.
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi confirmed last week a recent report in the Wall Street Journal detailing some $10-B in cash and assets provided to Iran since Y 2013, when the administration was engaging in sensitive diplomacy with Tehran aimed at securing the nuclear deal.
Mr. Ghasemi disclosed that the $10-B figure just scratches the surface of the total amount given to Iran by the United States over the past several years.
“I will not speak about the precise amount,” Mr. Ghasemi was quoted as saying in Persian language reports independently translated for the Washington Free Beacon.
The $10-B figure is actually a “stingy” estimate, Mr. Ghasemi claimed, adding that a combination of cash, gold, and other assets was sent by Washington to Iran’s Central Bank and subsequently “spent.”
“This report is true but the value was higher,” Mr. Ghassemi was quoted as saying.
“After the Geneva conference and the resulting agreement, it was decided that $700-M were to be dispensed per month” by the US, according to Mr. Ghassemi. “In addition to the cash funds which we received, we [also] received our deliveries in gold, bullion, and other things.”
Regional experts who spoke to the Free Beacon about these disclosures said that the $10-B figure offered by the Obama Administration should be viewed “as a conservative estimate for what Iran was paid to stay at the table and negotiate.”
