Just whose side is the Biden team on?
The Biden administration’s appeasement of Iran has long been a source of acute concern.
Its determination to recreate a nuclear deal with Iran, which would guarantee an eventual Iranian nuclear weapon while pouring billions from sanctions relief into Tehran’s coffers to fund its terrorist activities and regional power grabs, has been as baffling as it is terrifying.
Its repeated concessions to Iran, including its covert sanctions relief initiatives even as the regime has increased its aggressive attacks on American interests, has been astounding.
Yet new revelations suggest we don’t know the half of it. For Gabriel Naronha, a former special adviser for Iran in the US State Department and now a fellow at the Jewish Institute for National Security of America, has revealed that the Biden administration is actually helping enable Iran’s nuclear programme — in concert, believe it or not, with Russia.
The Obama administration implemented its nuclear deal with Iran on Jan. 16, 2016. Under the terms of this agreement, the United States lifted oil and financial sanctions on Iran, while Iran agreed to stop enriching uranium beyond 3.67 percent.
General Flynn had left the Obama administration 17 months before, and he was a vocal critic of the deal. He wrote a 2016 book, The Field of Fight, describing correspondence between the Iranian government and al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Apparently al Qaeda was working on chemical and biological weapons in Iran, but the Obama administration refused to declassify the proof.
Flynn also warned that the Russians were cooperating with the Iranians and would probably not help the U.S. fight radical Islamic terrorism. Still, the Obama administration agreed to let Russia export more than 100 tons of natural uranium to Iran—enough to make 10 nuclear bombs!
Now, the whole message the Obama administration was peddling about the Iran deal was that it would prevent the mullahs from getting a nuclear bomb. Yet they colluded with Russia to give Iran a hundred tons of uranium! What was really going on?
General Flynn condemned Iran as the “world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism” and advocated a strategy aimed at overthrowing the Iranian government. He criticized the Obama administration for trying to align America with the interests of a terrorist state. So when President-elect Trump appointed Flynn as a national security adviser, Obama went to work trying to get rid of Flynn.
As Lee Smith put it, “Russiagate was not a hoax, as some conservative journalists call it. Rather, it was a purposeful extension of the Obama administration’s Iran Deal media campaign, and of the secret espionage operation targeting those opposed to Obama’s efforts to realign American interests with those of a terror state that embodies the most corrosive forms of anti-Semitism” (ibid).
How could the American public be so ignorant as to allow such disastrous foreign-policy decisions?
