Remember that time when former President Barack Obama caved into the Iranians and gave them a massive cash payment in order to release American hostages they were holding.
This kind of behavior was so typical of the Obama administration and it frequently made the United States look weak in the eyes of the world.
According to reports, Iran is using that massive payment to fund a large military expansion.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Iranian leaders have stated since the Iran deal was enacted that they are using the massive amounts of cash released under the agreement to fund the purchase of new military equipment and other armaments. Iran also has pursued multi-million dollar arms deals with Russia since economic sanctions were nixed as part of the deal.
Leading members of Congress and U.S. officials working on the Iran portfolio suspect that at least a portion of the Obama administration’s $1.7 billion cash payment to Iran has been used to fund and support terrorists in the Middle East.
The latest disclosure about Iran’s military buildup is further fueling concerns that U.S. cash assets returned to the country—which were released with no strings attached by the Obama administration—are helping Iran pursue a more aggressive military stance against U.S. forces in the region.
“President Obama flat-out caved in to Iran when he handed them the disastrous nuclear deal and $1.7 billion in cash payments that could assist Iran’s military,” Rep. Sean Duffy (R., Wis.), an opponent of the nuclear deal, told the Washington Free Beacon. “So it’s no surprise that the world’s lead sponsor of terrorism would feel emboldened to become more aggressive in the region and flex its military muscle.”
That was some amazing planning by Obama. He provided our enemies with money that they are now using to build an army that they intend to use to destroy us.
Obama should be held liable for his actions. Share this story on social media and leave a comment below.
