obama-iran$100 billion haul is twice the amount Obama reported to Congress, and he admits it will be used to finance terror.

In a new development that is far from surprising, Obama’s deal with Iran has the terrorist state receiving twice as much cash than what he originally reported to Congress.

“The Obama administration is finding itself on the defensive amid rising charges that the U.S. and its allies lowballed the estimate of the billions of dollars Iran will reap from the deal that curbed Tehran’s nuclear programs in exchange for the lifting of punishing economic sanctions,” The Washington Times reports.

“Iranian President Hassan Rouhani just finished a shopping spree across Europe, and critics fear the nation’s military and hard-line security forces now have the funds to do the same, as Tehran claims to have secured access to ‘more than $100 billion’ from sanctions relief — roughly twice what the Obama administration has long claimed would be the case,” the Times reports.

In an odd attempt to dodge responsibility, the Obama administration passed the blame onto the U.S. Treasury Department.

The Times reports:

Wall Street Journal reporter Jay Solomon sparked an online back-and-forth when he tweeted: “Iran claims it now has access to [$100 billion] in frozen oil revenues under #IranDeal; @WhiteHouse said it would be $50 billion.”

Less than three minutes later, Marie Harf, a senior adviser to Mr. Kerry, hit back with a tweet of her own: “Important clarification — it was experts at @USTreasury Dept who did the math & determined how much $ Iran would actually get.”

That prompted David Rothkopf, the CEO of the company that publishes Foreign Policy magazine, to jump into the fray, tweeting, “Is that really an important clarification? Isn’t Treasury part of the administration? Weird distinction.”

Not only is Iran pocketing twice as much cash than reported, the Obama administration openly admitted that Tehran will use the funds for terrorist attacks on the U.S. and murder our service-members in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In a July 2015 interview with CNN, White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice confirmed that Iran will be use the money to expand terrorism in the region, including Taliban attacks on American soldiers.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Rice, “Once they start getting that money are there any restrictions on how the Iranians can use that money? Obviously they can use it to build schools and highways, but they could use it to support international terrorism, right?”

“It is real, it is possible, and, in fact, we should expect that some portion of that money would go to the Iranian military and could potentially be used for the kinds of bad behavior that we have seen in the region up until now,” Rice coolly replied.

In 2015, two retired British military officials, Colonel Richard Kemp and Major Chris Driver-Williams, published a report on Iran’s terrorist funding:

Iranian military action, often working through proxies using terrorist tactics, has led to the deaths of well over a thousand American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last decade and a half.

Throughout the course of the Iraq campaign, a variety of weapons flowed into the country through direct purchases by the government of Iran. These included Explosively Formed Penetrators (EFPs), a shaped charge designed to penetrate armor. These weapons – often camouflaged as rocks – were identical to those employed by Hizbullah against Israeli forces. In 2006, the British Telegraph revealed that three Iranian factories were “mass producing” the roadside EFP bombs used to kill soldiers in Iraq . . .

Iran paid Taliban fighters $1,000 for each U.S. soldier they killed in Afghanistan. The Sunday Times reported that a Taliban operative received $18,000 from an Iranian firm in Kabul as reward for an attack in 2010 that killed several Afghan government troops and destroyed an American armored vehicle.

And thanks to Obama, they have double the money to attack our troops and terrorize our nation.
