Taxpayer dollars. Your money. The money you earned that the Obama regime took, and sent to the country responsible for the 1979 hostage taking, murdering our troops in Iraq, funding terror groups that target Israel and Jews around the world, is helping North Korea with the nuclear ambitions, harbored al-Qaeda, and is the biggest exporter of terrorism in the world.
That’s where Obama, Hillary and Kerry think is where your money belongs. These people are maniacs but the GOP-led Congress, for some reason, does nothing to stop them.
The Obama administration has spent three years engaged in secret talks with Iran that resulted in the payment of nearly $2 billion in taxpayer funds to the Islamic Republic, with more payouts likely to come in the future, according to a recent letter issued by the State Department and obtained exclusively by the Washington Free Beacon.
The administration’s disclosure came in response to an inquiry launched in January by Rep. Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.), who was seeking further information about the Obama administration’s payment of $1.7 billion in taxpayer funds to Iran, which many viewed as a “ransom payment” for Iran’s release that month of several U.S. hostages…
Obama administration officials first began talks to settle a number of outstanding legal claims leveled against the United States by Iran in 2014. The administration predicts that more taxpayer-funded payments are likely to be granted to the Islamic Republic in the future, according to the letter.
Frifield in her letter goes on to defend the $1.7 billion payment to Iran and discloses that the administration is open to providing Tehran with more money if it is willing to settle these decades-old legal disputes with the United States.
“We are confident that this was a good settlement for the American taxpayer,” the State Department said.
Iran’s legal row with the United States surrounds the breakdown of a massive arms deal that was nixed in the aftermath of Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution, which resulted in the capture of the U.S. embassy and American personnel stationed there.
