Subterfuge: How America Got Rolled

Yesterday around the noon hour The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer, speaking alongside Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in the White House East Room, declared Donald Trump was “unfit to be president.”

Unbeknownst to the half-Kenyan “not-a-dictator” semi-retired pretend president, The Wall Street Journal was about to drop a bombshell revealing the Administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million in Euros and Swiss francs in an unmarked plane in the dead of night to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans who had been unlawfully detained in Tehran.
Wooden pallets stacked with Euros, Swiss francs and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said. 
The money represented the first installment of a $1.7 billion settlement the Obama administration reached with Iran to resolve a decades-old dispute over a failed arms deal signed just before the 1979 fall of Iran’s last monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. 
The settlement, which resolved claims before an international tribunal in The Hague, also coincided with the formal implementation that same weekend of the landmark nuclear agreement reached between Tehran, the U.S. and other global powers the summer before. 
With the nuclear deal done, prisoners released, the time was right to resolve this dispute as well,” President Barack Obama said at the White House on Jan. 17 — without disclosing the $400 million cash payment.
The paid liars of the Administration vigorously claim the timing was merely coincidental.
On the morning of Jan. 17, Iran released the four Americans: Three of them boarded a Swiss Air Force jet and flew off to Geneva, with the fourth returning to the U.S. on his own. In return, the U.S. freed seven Iranian citizens and dropped extradition requests for 14 others. 
U.S. and European officials wouldn’t disclose exactly when the plane carrying the $400 million landed in Iran. But a report by an Iranian news site close to the Revolutionary Guard, the Tasnim agency, said the cash arrived in Tehran’s Mehrabad airport on the same day the Americans departed.
The State Department’s paid liar, Admiral John Kirby, said in a statement:

“The negotiations over the settlement of an outstanding claim...were completely separate from the discussions about returning our American citizens home...Not only were the two negotiations separate, they were conducted by different teams on each side, including, in the case of The Hague claims, by technical experts involved in these negotiations for many years.”

This ransom to the ayatollahs for American hostages breaks with longstanding US policy and has placed a price on the head of Americans.  In fact, The Wall Street Journal notes since the cash payment was made the Iranian Revolutionary Guard has arrested two more Americans as well as Persians from France, Canada and Great Britain.

In 1985 when the Reagan Administration was involved in the Iran-Contra affair, it was President Reagan who later admitted the sale of arms to Iran had “deteriorated into trading arms for hostages.”  Democrats held the majority in Congress and led a full investigation into the scandal prompting calls for Reagan’s impeachment.

I’m not a betting person, but I’d be willing to bet a peanut butter n’ jelly sammich nobody has the gumption to initiate impeachment proceedings against this corrupt administration.
