Iran’s military reportedly using the billions in cash that former President Barack Obama gave to the Islamic Republic under the landmark nuclear deal to launch an unprecedented military buildup.
In a report by the Washington Free Beacon, Iran intends to make its military a “forward moving force” in the Middle East according to a largely unreported announcement by Iranian military leaders.
Tehran announced in late April that the country’s defense budget had surged by 145 percent under President Hassan Rouhani.
Iranian officials have made it no secret that they are using the massive amounts of cash released to them under Obama’s nuclear deal to purchase of new defense equipment and other armaments.
Iran has also sought multi-million dollar weapons deals with Russia since economic sanctions were removed.
American lawmakers and other experts are now investigating how much of the $1.7 billion in cash that the Obama administration released to Iran is being used to fund terror attacks in the Middle East.
