Iran Dupes President Obama Again!
In an effort by the Obama administration to do last minute foreign policy deals with Iran, President Obama approved and promoted that Western airline manufacturers could sell planes to Iran. This includes the Airbus and others modern jets. Iran still uses the very old Boeing 747s and others to carry passengers. The problem with this good intention for sales now, is that, evidence exists at the same time the Islamic Republic is using commercial airliners to smuggle rockets and other weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon. The Obama administration did have provisions in the agreement indicating that the aircraft may only be used to carry passengers. Just how gullible is Obama? Even though the evidence has just come out, surely he would know the airliners could carry dual purpose items. Including such a clause is incredibly stupid in light of the Iran nuclear arms deal. Just how would Obama verify that Iran airliners are not carrying weapons?
They knew they could not yet still lusted after the deal for financial and his legacy deals. The weapon smuggling has been going on since October. Despite the U.S. Senate pressure to get more information about the deal, Obama has turned silent.
New intelligence information alleges that Iran has indeed been using Mahan Air, a commercial airline that is currently subject to U.S. and UN sanctions, to smuggle weapons and ammunition to Hezbollah in Lebanon. This was echoed by Israeli intelligence. Some 12,000 missile parts have been smuggled in suitcases. This is a violation of the sale agreement and just two weeks ago, the U.N. announced that Iran has violated the Obama nuclear agreement with Iran.
The USN has intercepted five shipments of Iranian weapons destined to Yemen. The Saudis also have intercepted ships with weapons destined to Yemen. With all this Iranian smuggling, why would Obama approve the sale of Boeing and Airbus airliners to Iran?
Can hardly wait to get rid of Obama!
