How outrageous is it that Obama is using our tax dollars to fund the terrorist Iranian regime.
And these lecherous Leftist sneaked this in.
As FOX News reports,
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.
So for three years, as America has been told we are trying to keep Iran from creating nuclear bombs, Obama has been conspiring to pay almost $2 billion (for now) to the Iranians? And for what!
The story continues,
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.
The administration’s official response to Pompeo was sent earlier this week, just days after a Free Beacon report detailing a months-long State Department effort to stall the lawmaker’s inquiry.
“We apologize for the delay in responding,” Julia Frifield, an assistant secretary for legislative affairs, states in the letter’s opening.
So Obama’s inability to get our hostages back means that America must pay a ransom?
