President Obama acknowledged Wednesday in Washington that Iran might use cash coming its way under sanctions relief to fund “terrorist organizations” but then argued this is preferable to allowing it to develop nuclear arms.
“The truth is, that Iran has always found a way to fund these efforts,” Obama said, in a speech to defend the Iran nuclear deal.
“And whatever benefit Iran may claim from sanctions relief pales in comparison to the danger it could pose with a nuclear weapon.”
So how much money are we talking about? $150,000,000,000!!!
The White House says that Iran annually spends $30 billion on its military. So if under a final deal, as reports are indicating, the Iranian regime gets as much as $150 billion back [in] sanctions relief payments, even more money will be freed up for Iran to export aggression and support terrorists targeting the United States, Israel and other allies, Republican Senator Mark Kirk told The Daily Beast.
