Man, this is shades of Jimmy Carter and 1979 all over again, only much, much worse. Iran is now openly saying the $400 million Obama sent on pallets in an aircraft was indeed ransom for four hostages. The hostages waited all night in an airport until that plane arrived and the money was verified. Then they were allowed to leave. Sure sounds like ransom to me.
This is treasonous. It is illegal and if it had happened thirty years ago, or even ten, there would be hearings galore and indictments. Impeachment would be a very real possibility. But under Obama’s changed America, very little will probably happen, if anything at all. This qualifies as money laundering and it is criminal. No wonder the Department of Justice objected. They know the score here.
From Chicks On The Right:
Iran experts who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon said that it is impossible to verify if the images show the same pallets of cash transferred by the Obama administration.
The footage also claims that the Obama administration insisted the negotiations over the matter take place in secret and threatened Iranian officials who may have leaked information to the media.
The footage is part of a February documentary published by Iran’s Tasnim News Agency, which is affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.
The documentary purported to reveal behind-the-scenes details of the negotiations with the United States to free the American hostages. It maintains the negotiations were tied up in efforts to push the Iran nuclear agreement forward as it moved towards implementation.
The video of cash on pallets in the plane has yet to be verified. But Iran is putting it out all over the place and using it as propaganda. Jimmy Carter must be having flashbacks and there’s no Ronald Reagan in sight this time to take the helm. The Iranians are calling this an “expensive price” paid by the Obama administration to free several US hostages. They think we are fools and it sure looks like we are.
Per The Washington Free Beacon, the footage, which is from an Iranian documentary published a few months ago, contradicts claims by Obama administration officials maintaining that the payment was completely unrelated to the release of these US hostages, despite the payment having been supplied on the same day these individuals were freed by Iran. Right… it was all just a coincidence. Bullcrap.
The footage also claims that the Obama administration insisted the negotiations over the matter take place in secret and threatened Iranian officials who may have leaked information to the media. The footage is part of a February documentary published by Iran’s Tasnim News Agency, which is affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps. This was supposedly all part of the Iranian nuke deal… we just weren’t told of it. So much for transparency. Obama has literally made us into lap dogs for Iran. It’s beyond infuriating.
