Charles Krauthammer, one of America’s best conservative experts had a thing or two to say about the scandalous ransom that the U.S. paid to Iran.
Back in 2008, Obama has promised that if he would win the presidency, he will form the most “transparent administration in history.” So, Obama won the presidency but he failed on his promise, and Krauthammer even mentioned another such example.
Discussing the $400 million ransom that America paid to Iran fo the release of some detainees, Charles said: “They had to print the money here, ship it over to Switzerland, turn it into Swiss Francs and Euros, and then ship it over to Iran.”
Here are some additional comments by Krauthammer on the matter:
“If a private company had done this, this is called money laundering. The CEO would be in jail right now.”
Charles responded to a report by the Wall Street Journa claiming that the Department of Justice opposed the Department of State’s choice for taking this action.
“Of course, the Justice Department objected,” he said. “It was illegal.”
Obama shamelessly says that this money was not ransom money, but rather a partial payment of a $1.7 billion negotiated sgreement from an aborted weapon arrangement from 1979.
