The Biden regime didn’t pay the Ayatollah in Iran $6 Billion in a prisoner swap as first reported. Biden paid $16 billion.
The AP wrote a few days ago:
As the Biden administration heralds the forthcoming release of five U.S. citizens detained by Iran, President Joe Biden is also confronting questions about the price being paid to bring them — and other detainees — home.
The billions of dollars being unfrozen for Iran and the release of five prisoners charged in America are just the latest sizable concessions by the U.S. government in the name of securing the freedom of wrongfully detained Americans.
In the past year alone, a notorious arms dealer was exchanged for a WNBA star imprisoned in Russia on a minor drug offense and a major drug lord was traded for a civilian contractor held by the Taliban. And though the U.S, doesn’t control the $6 billion in Iranian funds, it’s removing a critical obstacle to their release as the main price for the homecoming of five American citizens, giving Iran a much-needed boost for its struggling economy.
The AP hid at the bottom of the article that 5 American inmates will be traded to Iran along with the $6 billion.
The contours of the new Iran deal came into focus Monday with the revelation that Secretary of State Antony Blinken had issued a blanket waiver for international banks to transfer $6 billion in frozen Iranian money from South Korea to Qatar without fear of U.S. sanctions, part of a deal that also envisions a swap of five Americans in Iran for five Iranians charged in the U.S.
U.S. officials have sought to defend the new exchange, noting that the frozen funds belong to the Iranians and insisting that Washington will have oversight of how that money is spent. Even so, Iran wouldn’t be getting access to the money without U.S. consent, and President Ebrahim Raisi said in an NBC News interview that his government would decide to “spend it wherever we need it.”
The AP doesn’t mention that the $6 billion was given to Iran on Monday which happened to be 9-11. This agreement appears to be an in-your-face agreement against the American people.
Overall, Iran will receive $6 billion along with 5 prisoners from the US while the US will receive 5 Americans from Iran. What a horrible deal.
But this was before what Senator Ted Cruz shared. It appears that the dollar amount given to Iran on 9-11 was much more than reported. According to Cruz, the Biden regime is actually paying the Ayatollah $16 billion, not $6 billion.
The Biden administration just paid a $16 billion ransom to the Ayatollah.
They are giving money to a murderous regime that routinely chants “Death to Israel” and “Death to America.” pic.twitter.com/RNdxWo3tqB
