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.

    Of course, that is O’Bamas’ plan to bankrupt America by giving away as much money as he can to make it worthless and encourage Iran to conquer the U.S. by using ISISt to do it thinking They will make him an Ayatollah so he can run it like a Iranian satellite.

    Seems that Obama wants to see that Caliphate as bad as the rest of his cult members! Sad that our Gov. didn’t take this clown out years ago!

    In 1978, Iran was an ally. Significant commerce took place at both the government and private level, Then the Shah was deposed in 1979. All private and public wealth on deposit in the U.S. was “frozen”. That includes funds the Shah had deposited with the US Government for a large weapons purchase.

    Those assets owned Iran’s citizens and government have been held since 1979. They have earned interest — almost 40 years of interest. America and Americans have enjoyed use of those funds for almost 40 years.

    Now the time for an accounting has arrived. Germany was required to pay back confiscated funds. Ir would appear Americans believe that even Common Joe should have his funds stolen by America, and the Iran government as well.

    Somehow, that does not seem like the actions of a Nation and a people looking to develop peace between nations. Iran does not “need” those funds. Iran has an abundance of oil and mineral wealth, that is purchased by Russia and other Countries not alined with the U.S.

      I would have thought that any deals with the Shah were voided when the Ayatollahs took over and became hostile to the U.S. especially after holding for ransom our embassy personnel during the Carter Presidency.

        Deals? You mean stealing people’s money, like the Germans did during WWII?

    President Obama should move to Iran. It is clear he likes Iran more than he likes the United States.

    Don’t you just love the way Obama treats our enemies with such kindness? the SOB should be hung.

  • solog

    May have? What kind of system do we have if we don’t even know for sure? If the President or whoever is sending money or making payments without authorization and/or approval, isn’t that a crime or violation of administrative procedures? If people are doing wrong, they need to be charged or brought to justice…Let’s Go!

    Obama is a bigger terrorist than Soros in funding terrorist nations with all the cash and secrecy that is afforded by his office. Obama should be arrested for terrorism, aiding and abetting the enemy, lying to Congress, lying to the American public, cheating the American Public, Illegal money laundering, transfering money with intent to bypass currency laws to a foreign nation, and the list of violations just keeps on growing. How much more can America tolerate in this out of control man before he is arrested and thrown out of office early?

      Can’t happen! The House could impeach him, but it would take 13 honest Dem senators to convict in the Senate and throw his sorry arse out…there are exactly zero honest Dems in the Senate.

        Unfortunately you are 100% correct, they all in each others pants stroking away.
