BREAKING: Obama’s Iran Ransom Scandal EXPLODES After Unmarked Plane, Cargo EXPOSED

Dean James III% AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

The Obama White House’s dealings with Iran are under fire again after the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that $400 million ransom was transferred to Tehran just as four American citizens were released from the Islamic republic’s prisons, Conservative Tribune reports.

The report says that the transfer was made via an unmarked plane. It happened just as American citizens Jason Rezaian, a Washington Post reporter, Amir Hekmati, a former U.S. Marine; Christian pastor Saeed Abedini and Nosratollah Khosravi-Roodsari were released by Iran.

According to the Obama administration, the payment’s timing with the release of the four men was only coincidental. The administration claims it was part of a $1.7 billion settlement that was part of the Iran deal involving reparations for an arms contract that was signed before the Iranian Revolution, and not a ransom.

Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (Ret.) says there’s “no question” that a $400 million cash transfer to Iran that coincided with the release of four Iranian-held U.S. hostages was a ransom, FOX reports.

“This was definitely a ransom or a bribe, if you’d prefer to call it that,” Peters said, calling it a “sweetener” that the Obama administration threw in to get the Iranian nuclear deal through and the American detainees released.

He said that this actually encourages people to take more Americans prisoner, as it sets a precedent.

“It just plain stinks,” Peters said.

He accused the Obama administration of being “profoundly dishonest” throughout this process, likening it to the Bowe Bergdahl deal.

“If this was all perfectly honest, why was it done in the dead of night with an unmarked cargo plane in Swiss franc and euros to avoid, to get around the U.S. law that you can’t traffic with Iran in dollars?” Peters said. “It smells to high heaven. But it’s business as usual for the Obama administration.”

Even U.S. Sen. John McCain released a statement:

“The Obama Administration’s airlift of $400 million in cash to Iran is disturbing, but hardly surprising given its long record of concessions to America’s adversaries. Whatever the Administration may claim, it is clear that this payment was a ransom for Americans held hostage in Iran.

Just like the Administration’s reckless nuclear deal, this cash payment incentivized further belligerent Iranian behavior, such as the arrests of two more Iranian-Americans. It also added $400 million to the coffers of the world’s number-one state sponsor of terrorism at a time when it is actively working to destabilize the Middle East and undermine U.S. national security interests.

Money is fungible. The Iranian regime now has an additional $400 million to support Bashar Assad’s slaughter of people in Syria; to fund militias and terrorists in places like Iraq and Yemen; to funnel arms to terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah that seek to destroy the state of Israel, and to buy advanced military capabilities to threaten the United States and our regional partners. This is all thanks to the Obama Administration’s reckless and foolish efforts to curry favor with our enemies in Iran.”

Meanwhile, Iran continues to violate the terms of the nuke agreement. It’s completely out of control.

We need a REAL leader. We need TRUMP!

VOTE FOR DONALD TRUMP AND TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
