Secret $33.6 Billion Payment From Obama to Iran?

The $1.7 billion Obama illegally paid to the terrorists running Iran in exchange for hostages is only the beginning of his largesse:

Iran may have received an additional $33.6 billion in secret cash and gold payments facilitated by the Obama administration between 2014 and 2016, according to testimony provided before Congress by an expert on last summer’s nuclear agreement with Iran.

Between January 2014 and July 2015, when the Obama administration was hammering out the final details of the nuclear accord, Iran was paid $700 million every month from funds that had previously been frozen by U.S. sanctions.

A total of $11.9 billion was ultimately paid to Iran, but the details surrounding these payments remain shrouded in mystery, according to Mark Dubowitz, executive director at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

In total, “Iran may have received as much as $33.6 billion in cash or in gold and other precious metals,” Dubowitz disclosed.

Most or all of this money will be spent on terrorism and Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

But at least Obama got Iran to secure his legacy by agreeing to the nuclear treaty that was not ratified by the Senate as the Constitution requires. Here is how that treaty is going:

[T]he International Atomic Energy Agency said in a review issued Thursday that Iran had begun manufacturing rotor tubes for centrifuges, the spinning machines used to enrich uranium. …

The agency needs to keep a close eye on how many rotor tubes are being made and for what models of centrifuges to make sure they are being produced only in quantities and for machines allowed under the 2015 nuclear agreement that sets a schedule for when and how many advanced centrifuges can be tested. …

A senior diplomat familiar with the nuclear deal … said he could not verify reports that the six powers exempted some amounts of low-enriched uranium and facilities from the deal’s scope to allow Iran to be in compliance with the pact from the beginning of implementation in January.

No reasonable person expects terrorists to hold up their end of a treaty. But if the ayatollahs did abide by the treaty, they would still end up with nuclear weapons; it is only a question of when.

There is a point at which Pollyannaism and incompetence become indistinguishable from treason. Obama crossed it long ago.
