Obama Secretly Sent Iran Billions 
Good afternoon, I’m still reporting on the invasion.
According to today’s Washington Free Beacon, just in the past 4 years, the Obama administration, has given Iran much more than previously disclosed in cash, gold and other assets.
According to who? According to senior Iranian officials.
Last week, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi confirmed a report in the Dec. 30th Wall Street Journal that: 
“… the total amount of money paid to Iran over the past 4 years is in excess of $10 billion.”
This is far more money than the Obama administration has admitted to in the past, and confirms critics’ accounts that Obama has been grossly underestimating the amount of money the U.S. has paid the Iranians. 
According to the administration, the U.S. sent only $400 million as a super-secret ransom payment aboard an unmarked jet just one year ago, Jan. 17, 2016, to free 4 Americans who had been held in Iranian prisons for years.
As the coming collapse of ObamaCare became a certainty, President Obama had become increasingly desperate to preserve the fa├žade of his only major foreign policy “initiative” – the Iranian ObamaNuke deal. 
However, the sheer size of the asset transfers to Iran now make insiders wonder if other, more sinister, motivations may be in play.
Congressman Ed Royce (R., Calif), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee had sponsored a bill to ban such payments. It passed the House, but failed to pass the Senate.
“Forking over cash and gold to the world’s leading state sponsor of terror is incredibly dangerous.”
According to the Wall Street Journal article, between January 2014 and July 2015, as Obama lifted years-long sanctions on frozen Iranian oil revenues from a variety of nations, that money was converted into cash and gold and sent to Iran on jets at a rate supposedly held to only $700 million per month.
According to the Journal article:
“Tehran recouped a total of $11.9 billion between January 2014 and July 2015.”
However, the real amount Obama has facilitated to be sent to Iran may never be known. Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ghasemi said in today’s Washington Free Beacon that the U.S. contribution alone far exceeds $10 billion.
Other anonymous experts on the region confirmed to the Free Beacon that the $10 billion figure sent by Obama should be viewed:
“as a conservative estimate for what Iran was paid to stay at the table and negotiate [on the ObamaNuke deal].”
One veteran foreign policy insider familiar with the Iran nuclear deal explained that hiding the amounts sent to Iran was standard procedure for the Obama administration.
“This is how it always happens when the Obama administration secretly sends money to Iran. 
They deny it until they’re caught, then they lowball it until they’re caught again, then they say it’s old news.” 
In other words, their modus operandi – a stone wall of lies.
“In every single case where Iranian officials confirm these transfers while Obama officials denied them, it later turned out the Iranian officials were the ones telling the truth.” 
The bottom line is that much of these billions of dollars sent to Iran will, no doubt, go towards funding additional regional terror operations around the world.
