Here’s a quick summary of what Obama’s band of merry men tried to do for Iran:
The Obama administration granted a license letting Iran access the United States financial system despite officials’ pledges that they would prohibit it, according to a draft report from the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations.
When the nations involved in the Iran nuclear agreement implemented the deal, Iran had $5.7 billion in assets at Bank Muscat in Muscat, Oman, maintained as Omani rials, according to the subcommittee. Iran wanted to access that money, and using the U.S. financial system to convert it “was the most efficient means, even though U.S. sanctions prohibited it,” according to the report.
Government officials tried to convince two U.S. banks to execute the conversion. They both declined, citing the complexity and the unwanted appearance involved in processing an Iranian transaction, according to the report.
Shorter: Obama’s administration knew using American banks would be the best way to convert the currency, because America, but those banks didn’t want to deal with Iran. Becuase it’s Iran, a terrorist-sponsoring nation with whom we shouldn’t be in financial beds. Not a difficult concept for anyone who isn’t porking the devil.
A former administration illegally making financial deals with a country better known for funding terrorists and chanting “Death to America and/or Israel!” seems, to me at least, a bigger deal than who snubbed who first for the White House Superbowl party.
Not that talking about sports isn’t valid. Okay? Okay.
Obama’s administration helping out our enemy also seems like a bigger deal than the recent game of “Where’s Melania?” Yet y’all in media have been obsessed with trying to spot the First Lady. I admit I don’t much care to play the game. Melania is a fine person, don’t get me wrong, but she’s got nothing to do with policy. At least at this point. You’re trying to make me care about her whereabouts like you tried making me care about the plight of a porn star. Didn’t work then. Isn’t working now. Melania could be writing long-form poems about the asexual mating habits of Chris Cuomo. If that’s the case, best leave her to it. Also, send me a copy.
