Obama Claimed $400 Million Cash To Iran Was Due To Inability To Wire Funds. Two Days Later He WIRES 1.3 Billion To Iran
That late-night, unmarked plane transfer of $400 million dollars in cash to the Iranian government was NOT a ransom payment. So said Barack Obama as he sneered at those who claimed ransom to the world’s #1 sponsor of Islamic terror was EXACTLY what that payment was.
The president went on to declare the following in his defense:
“The reason that we had to give them cash is precisely because we are so strict in maintaining sanctions, and we do not have a banking relationship with Iran, that we couldn’t send them a check; and we could not wire the money.”
So in essence, Mr. Obama is claiming that the reason his administration bent over, grabbed its ankles, and gave the Iranian government everything it demanded was because the Obama administration was being so tough in following the sanctions – sanctions which he claims made a wire transfer of funds to the Iranians impossible.
And yet, forty-eight hours after that $400 million dollar under-the-cover-of-darkness cash payment was made to Iran, the Obama government WIRED $1.3 BILLION DOLLARS TO THE IRANIAN GOVERNMENT.
