In news that will not surprise a single conservative or libertarian, the State Department admitted they have no idea whether or not the $3 billion in assets unfrozen by the Iran nuclear deal are being used to fund terrorism. Iran is the world’s largest state funder of terrorism.
Let’s think about this one….
In the four months since Iran and world powers began to implement the comprehensive nuclear agreement, Iran has been able to recover around $3 billion in funds that were unfrozen as part of the deal. Iran is expected to be given access to another $50 billion to 55 billion in the coming months. However, the Obama administration was not able to say if Iran has spent any of this money to fund terrorism campaigns.
“We don’t know” if Iran has spent this money on terror activities, State Department spokesman John Kirby told reporters. “We don’t know. We don’t have a way.”
It gets even worse.
In the coming months, the U.S. and foreign governments will help Iran access another $50 billion to $55 billion in assets.
Meanwhile, Iran purchased S-300 missile system parts from Russia and recently showed them off in an Army Parade (see the video below). At this point, giving Iran access to any more resources just seems treasonous.
