Obama Released Dangerous Iranian Terrorists and Lied About It

Obama lied to the American people when he released Iranian prisoners during the nuclear negotiations with Iran in January of 2016.

He presented it as a modest trade-off for what we were to get in return (what’d we get?)

The prisoners he released, according to him, weren’t “dangerous,” they were just Iranian-American businessmen who were in violation of sanctions, leading us to believe they were just people trying to make a buck and circumvented some rules in order to feed their families.

This wasn’t the case. In fact, what Obama did infuriated our Justice Department, but not so much that they would be compelled to prosecute him. Maybe the Trump DOJ will.

Politico-

The biggest fish, though, was Seyed Abolfazl Shahab Jamili, who had been charged with being part of a conspiracy that from 2005 to 2012 procured thousands of parts with nuclear applications for Iran via China. That included hundreds of U.S.-made sensors for the uranium enrichment centrifuges in Iran whose progress had prompted the nuclear deal talks in the first place.

When federal prosecutors and agents learned the true extent of the releases, many were shocked and angry. Some had spent years, if not decades, working to penetrate the global proliferation networks that allowed Iranian arms traders both to obtain crucial materials for Tehran’s illicit nuclear and ballistic missile programs and, in some cases, to provide dangerous materials to other countries.

“They didn’t just dismiss a bunch of innocent business guys,” said one former federal law enforcement supervisor centrally involved in the hunt for Iranian arms traffickers and nuclear smugglers. “And then they didn’t give a full story of it.”

In its determination to win support for the nuclear deal and prisoner swap from Tehran — and from Congress and the American people — the Obama administration did a lot more than just downplay the threats posed by the men it let off the hook, according to POLITICO’s findings.

Through action in some cases and inaction in others, the White House derailed its own much-touted National Counterproliferation Initiative at a time when it was making unprecedented headway in thwarting Iran’s proliferation networks. In addition, the POLITICO investigation found that Justice and State Department officials denied or delayed requests from prosecutors and agents to lure some key Iranian fugitives to friendly countries so they could be arrested. Similarly, Justice and State, at times in consultation with the White House, slowed down efforts to extradite some suspects already in custody overseas, according to current and former officials and others involved in the counterproliferation effort.

  1. I GIVE UP!! THIS ASSHOLE WAS AN 8-YR DISASTER, LEAD HONCHO IN THE DEMISE OF THE UNITED STATES, CAUSED CHAOS FOR TRUMP!!

    WHILE IDIOTS WORK TO “IMPEACH TRUMP” BEFORE HIS 100 DAYS ARE UP, THIS DICKWEED GOES OFF TO THE SHELTERED LIFE OF SPEAKING TOURS AND BOOKS!! HE IS TEFLON-COATED!! NOBODY WILL TOUCH HIM!!

    THANKS OBAMA, FOR PUTTING THE ENTIRE WORLD ON THE ENDANGERED SPECIES LIST!!!

  2. What questions will the nut-loving professor take today on President Trump? Oh, and since these dirtbags were let go, why did he arrest Reza Zarrab? Giuliani is on the case.

  3. If there was ever a justification for a Pulitzer Award this should be a slam dunk. AG Sessions: Go after him and pull the main drain on the SWAMP.

  4. If NO ONE else has the stomach to bring this rat to Justice, I would.

    But after EIGHT+ YEARS of in-your-face lying, insulting, stealing, blasphemy, and rubbing his depravity IN YOUR FACES, no one is moved to act.

    YOU’RE NOT WORTH IT, my fellow Americans!

  5. It’s impossible to embarrass the arrogant left. This is a great case in point along with the lying press that continues to delude their electorate.

    Let’s hope this type of swagger brings about their eventual demise.

  6. So basically, there was no “deal” with Iran. There was just a giveaway because Obama wanted to do it and knew no one could stop him. Obama does not care about harsh words from critics. He is and will remain untouchable. Clinton to the nth power.

  7. Wow. NBC, CBS and ABC are all reporting on this in depth. — NOT!!!
    – They still will report on the destructiveness of their false messiah.

  8. Our first malodorous, malignant, mulatto, Marxist-Muslim President was also a traitor! Oh no! Just wait until the NY Times and the Washington Post investigators get on this story. Why, it could ruin sales of his memoirs. Remember these things when you ask yourselves if Obama was capable of “bugging” Trump during the election.

  9. everyone was-is afraid to do anything to or about Obama because he was the first black person to be president- afraid of race riots-wars et cetera. Now that he is out-someone in government needs to do what needs to be done- and throw in all his followers as well.

  10. See the pattern?
    Equal Justice for all —- blind justice for all peons and a wink and nod justice for Elected and Appointed Elites.

  11. Is anyone who frequents this place surprised in any way? President valjar was born there for Christ’s sake.
