Obama Admin. Won’t Rule Out $50 Billion ‘Signing Bonus’ for Iran

Yet a new wrinkle has surfaced in the controversial nuclear deal being formulated by the US and world powers with Iran, as State Department representatives on Monday would not rule out handing the Islamic regime up to $50 billion in a “signing bonus” for agreeing to a deal.

Reports have indicated that the US would authorize a release of $30-$50 billion in cash to Iran with the signing of a final deal ahead of a June 30 deadline, which comes in addition to over $11 billion in assets that were unfrozen in the interim agreement signed November 2013.

Asked about the reports on Monday, State Department spokesperson Marie Harf tried to avoid the topic before accusing reporters of being “spun up” on the issue, according to Washington Free Beacon.

When directly asked if Iran will receive $50 billion “on day one after signing” a nuclear deal, Harf said she would “look into it.”

    I wonder what % they’ll kick back to the White Hut?

    Gee. I wonder if any of the fifty billion will end up being used against Israel?
    Iran is laughing their asses off now.

      $50-billiom to Iran is so obscene, it is incomprehensible. But that may scuttle the deal, as far as Congress is concerned.

  • As someone pointed out a few days ago, although Obama is a Sunni Muslim, and therefore in principle antipathetic to Iranian Shiites, in this case his purpose is to strengthen Israel’s enemies, on the principle that “the enemy of my enemy is my ally.” So his behavior is not as inconsistent or confused as it may appear.

    Incidentally, I read recently on the Internet (I let you find it easily) that Obama is only 1/16th genetically black – which means he cannot claim to be black at all by USA legal standards (which require 1/8 th). His Obama family are mainly Arab genetically (making him 7/16 th Arab), descendants of Arab slave traders! His mother is of course white (accounting for 50% of his genes). He no doubt knows all this – and considers himself an Arab (Sunni). Of course, the leftist media and the cowardly other media do not advertise these facts, but maintain the fiction of a black president. No, he is the USA’s first Arab president.

  • This was all predicted in 2008.

    President Cruz will have to manage the war Obama started.
