This is that STELLAR judgement that gave us this AWESOME Iran deal Hillary keeps bragging about. Hate to see what her failures look like (other than the burned-out embassies).
President Obama quickly papered over the fact that he gave Iran $400,000,000 to release hostages, but it appears that now Hillary Clinton may have given ISIS $400,000,000 accidently.
So everyone can agree that the $400 million sent to Iran by President Obama can be viewed as skeptical. Yes we received hostages back, but at the same time Iran got all this money and who knows what they are going to do with it.
The White House tried to frame the money sent as anything but a ransom. They instead claimed it was the “first installment of the $1.7 billion in the United States seized in 1979 after an arms deal with the Shah of Iran was halted following the Islamic revolution.”
Half a BILLION. To ISIS. Accidentally.
That seems pretty bad. What else did they say?
when asked about what Iran could potentially do with the money, the White House press secretary let slip that there could be a chance for them to use it for things other than aid.
This just gets better and better. Can you clarify? What about this money that was ‘largely spent on aid’?
“We know that Iran supports Hezbollah and the Assad regime, and it certainly is possible that some of the money Iran has is being used for those purposes too. That’s precisely why this administration on the front end has been deepening our engagement with our partners in the Middle East to counter those activities.”
So once again, the question remains this: How much of that money was used to support these terrorist regimes? That has to be the most important thing to address. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad we got four people back, but this might be a deal that is going to haunt the United States for a long time.

Hold on one minute. Hezbollah? Assad?
Do you mean to say we gave $400 Million dollars, in unmarked bills, to the World’s Largest State Sponsor Of Terrorism™, and it might have gone to Hezbolla? And ASSAD?
And THIS is the deal Hillary and Obama point to as their RESOUNDING foreign policy SUCCESS?
