Obama’s eight year reign as President was riddled with scandal after scandal.
Even after leaving office, traces of his shady tenure have been coming to light.
And he really tried to hide this recently revealed connection with Iran.
During Obama’s negotiations on the notorious Iran Deal, a lot of shady things happened behind the scenes.
Possibly the most shocking thing to come out is a report that shows the Obama administration likely hid information about Iran illicitly ferrying militants into Syria on commercial aircraft.
This information was allegedly withheld in order to promote the Iran nuclear deal, as well as foster multi-billion dollar business deals with Tehran’s state-controlled airline sector.
This information comes from lawmakers and other sources familiar with the situation.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon:
“The Obama administration likely hid information about Iran illicitly ferrying militants into Syria on commercial aircraft in order to promote the landmark nuclear deal and foster multi-billion dollar business deals with Tehran’s state-controlled airline sector, according to lawmakers and other sources familiar with the matter.
The Washington Free Beacon first disclosed last week that congressional leaders are calling for an investigation into Iran for using its state-controlled air carrier, Iran Air, to ferry militant fighters into Syria, where they are taking up arms in defense of embattled President Bashar al-Assad.
Photographs provided to Congress show Iran using Iran Air to ferry these soldiers between 2016 and 2017, in part when the Obama administration removed sanctions on Iran Air and promoted multi-billion dollars sales between the carrier and aircraft manufacturer Boeing, which is seeking to provide Iran Air with a fleet of new planes that many suspect will be used to carry terrorist fighters and weapons into regional hotspots.
This behavior violates international laws governing the nuclear deal and has now led lawmakers and others to accuse the Obama administration of downplaying Iran’s illicit activity in order to promote the nuclear deal and ensure Tehran receives a new commercial fleet.”
This scandal involves a number of high ranking officials of the former Obama administration.
Even former secretary of state John Kerry has found himself in the center of this scandal.
As the ferrying of Iranian militants was occurring, Kerry was traveling the world to promote trade with Iranian companies, including Iran Air.
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), who sits on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told the Washington Free Beacon that the Obama administration ignored evidence of Iran’s illegal military activity:
“As the Obama administration was shipping palettes of cash to Iran, the mullahs were sending militants to wage jihad in Syria,” DeSantis said. “The Obama administration turned a blind eye to this and other transgressions because it was so intent on delivering major sanctions relief to the world’s leading state-sponsor of terrorism, the Iranian government.”
This is just another example of the cronyism that riddled Obama’s eight years in office.
What do you think? Will more Obama scandals come to light?
