The Obama administration sure left America with a doozy of a problem to solve with Iran.
First, Team Obama, led by the president himself, forged a nuclear deal with the rogue nation that put Israel in danger and ticked off many of America’s allies that fear a nuke-powered Iran.
That alone is enough to bring his legacy down another few notches. But if you think Barack Obama can’t keep falling, in both the eyes of the the American public and the world at large, think again. This guy seems to be mired in scandals these days; his proven lies about the U.S. economy is only the tip of the iceberg.
Now, come to find out, Team Obama, led once again by the president, actually paid Iran a TON of behind-closed-doors cash to the tune of $1.7 billion, a hands-off of funds that was seen by critics as kind of a ransom note that sealed the nuke deal and freed some captive Americans from Tehran grasp.
Well, get ready for this.
“The Obama administration has paid Iran more than $10 billion in gold, cash, and other assets since 2013, according to Iranian officials, who disclosed that the White House has been intentionally deflating the total amount paid to the Islamic Republic,” the Washington Free Beacon reported.
Senior level Iranian officials confirmed that the amount paid by America to Iran over the last four years surpassed $10 billion, an astronomical amount that just blows away what the White House has previously estimated. Of course, our citizens are only finding out about this now and in point of fact…
It could be more.
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi was cited by the Wall Street Journal as saying that $10 billion was actually just a scratch on the surface of the true amount the Obama administration funneled Iran’s way these past few years.
Are you kidding?
Obama, whom many in America can’t wait to see leave the White House, is nonetheless burdening the country with quite a matter to contend with, and it’s no small security detail. Not only are critics of the Obama administration still saying Team Obama pretty much handed Iran, via the nuclear deal, a 10-year time frame in which to develop nuclear weapons, but now it seems the White House has seen clear to fund Iran’s work toward nuclear development.
After all, $10 billion can go a long way on the black market.
