Obama Allowed Iran Access to Our Financial System

Obama’s borderline treasonous canoodling with America’s most vociferous enemy goes beyond illegally shipping the terrorists running Iran pallets piled with cash and allowing Hezbollah to smuggle cocaine into the USA on Iran’s request. The Moonbat Messiah also allowed Iran access to our financial system:

After striking an elusive nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration found itself in a quandary in early 2016: Iran had been promised access to its long-frozen overseas reserves, including $5.7 billion stuck in an Omani bank.

To spend it, Iran wanted to convert the money into U.S. dollars and then euros, but top U.S. officials had repeatedly promised Congress that Iran would never gain access to America’s financial system.

Those assurances notwithstanding, the Obama administration secretly issued a license to let Iran sidestep U.S. sanctions for the brief moment required to convert the funds through an American bank, an investigation by Senate Republicans released Wednesday showed. The plan failed when two U.S. banks refused to participate.

Thankfully bankers are more responsible, not to mention patriotic, than our 44th president.

Issuing the license was not illegal. Still, it went above and beyond what the Obama administration was required to do under the terms of the nuclear agreement, in which the U.S. and world powers gave Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for [smirkingly pretending to curb] its nuclear program.

Adding insult to injury, Obama lied to us, as he was so wont to do:

The license … stood in stark contrast to repeated public statements from the Obama White House, the Treasury and the State Department, all of which denied that the administration was contemplating allowing Iran access to the U.S. financial system.

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you want terrorists out of your financial system, we will keep terrorists out of your financial system.

Regrettably, Iran found other means to convert the money Obama freed up for them. Predictably, it has been spent on terrorism and weapons programs.

On a tip from 1-Bodhisattva.
