No one should be surprised that the Obama administration made bad deals with other nations.
He did it all the damn time.
Yet it’s the sheer magnitude of those deals, coupled with the danger they present to America, that is stunning and frightening.
Earlier this year, we learned Barack Obama had somehow managed to lose BILLIONS in his dealings with Iran. But if you figured that was the end of the story, well, think again.
Here’s what happened when the U.S. forged the nuclear agreement with Iran and frankly, it involves incompetence bordering on treason.
These deals and the negotiations that surround them are so complex that they make one’s heads spin. But it doesn’t take a lot of investigation to see that Obama flat-out betrayed this country.
The betrayal in question involves the transfer of prisoners in return for Iran’s supposed acquiescence to American demands regarding their nuclear program. Obama agreed to, as Politico put it:
“…the ‘one-time gesture’ of releasing Iranian-born prisoners who ‘were not charged with terrorism or any violent offenses’ last year, [and] his administration presented the move as a modest trade-off for the greater good of the Iran nuclear agreement and Tehran’s pledge to free five Americans.”
On deeper inspection, one can see that this is not an accurate characterization of the “deal.”
Politico goes so far as to claim that the Obama administration’s “representatives weren’t telling the whole story.” Those of us who have followed this administration for years are not surprised.
Here’s the lie:
“In his Sunday morning address to the American people, Obama portrayed the seven men he freed as ‘civilians.’ The senior official described them as businessmen convicted of or awaiting trial for mere ‘sanctions-related offenses, violations of the trade embargo.'”
STORY CONTINUES BELOW…
In reality, some of them were accused by Obama’s own Justice Department of posing threats to national security.
Three allegedly were part of an illegal procurement network supplying Iran with U.S.-made microelectronics with applications in surface-to-air and cruise missiles like the kind Tehran test-fired recently, prompting a still-escalating exchange of threats with the Trump administration.”
There is a whole lot more to this story, especially regarding the offenses these men and others committed, but the point has been made.
Mr. Obama sold the U.S. out, plain and simple. He gave “get out of jail free” cards to men who committed acts that endangered the U.S., just so his precious deal with Iran got through.
And by the way, President Donald Trump has made it plain that he does NOT trust Iran, and you can bet every penny you’ve got that HE wouldn’t have done this. No chance in hell.
America comes first with Trump…it never came first with Obama. Not once.
