Iran Caught Going Back On Obama’s Hogwash Nuke Deal

on

When Obama decided to go forward with that awful nuke deal I knew it was going to blow up in our face.  Once again we see how useless Barack Obama’s foreign policy is after Iran was caught violating the nuclear agreement it made with our ex-president.

The news comes from the Washington Free Beacon: New photographs obtained by congressional leaders show Iran shipping militant soldiers to Syria on commercial airline flights, a move that violates the landmark nuclear agreement and has sparked calls from U.S. lawmakers for a formal investigation by the Trump administration, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.

Photographs published by a Washington, D.C., think-tank and provided to Congress show Iran using its flagship commercial carrier, Iran Air, to ferry militants to Syria, where they have joined the fight against U.S. forces in the region.

So, Iran is sending dangerous Jihadis into Syria on commercial flights, an act that goes directly against the agreement Obama told us all was so wonderful and necessary.

The violations come at an inconvenient time for plane maker Boeing.

The release of these photographs allegedly showing Iran Air’s illegal activity comes as top U.S. air carrier manufacturer Boeing moves forward with a multi-billion dollar deal to sell Iran Air a new modern fleet. Many in Congress have opposed the deal due to Iran’s longstanding use of commercial aircraft for military purposes, such as transporting weapons and troops to regional hotspots such as Syria and elsewhere.

Oops. In any case, some in Congress now want to put a halt to the sale of the planes to Iran.

“Iran’s use of commercial aircraft for military purposes violates international agreements as well as Iranian commitments under the JCPOA,” or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, according to the delegation of lawmakers pushing for an investigation. “We believe these photos mandate a thorough investigation of these practices and a comprehensive review of Iran’s illicit use of commercial aircraft.”

“During this investigation, the United States should suspend current and future licenses for aircraft sales to Iran,” the letter goes on to say.

Those calling for an investigation include Reps. Peter Roskam (R., Ill.), Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.), Andy Barr (R., Ken.), and David Reichert (R., Wash.).
