WITH LOVE FROM BIDEN: US PRESIDENT UNDER FIRE FOR $6BILLION GIFT TO TERROR-LINKED IRAN
US President, Joe Biden, has come under criticism for gifting $6 Billion to Iran—a country the US describes as the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism—on the September 11 2001 terror attack.
The funds which formed part of a prisoner exchange deal will see Iran release five captured Americans in exchange for lifted sanctions, the return of imprisoned Al-Qaeda terrorists, and the release of frozen Iranian assets worth billions.
White House Spokesperson, John Kirkby, announced that the US will try to ensure Iran spends the money “just as they have agreed to.” Kirkby lacked response after being quizzed by reporters who described Biden as a pathological liar with worrying signs of mental health decline, and the move as one with the potential to incentivize the kidnap of US nations.
It remains to be seen how the White House places such expectations on a government with a long history of defying US orders, and increasing nuclear capabilities.
Many Republicans have come out to condemn the deal, adding that Biden be called to order for advancing courses destructive to America’s national interest. The GOP members drew parallels with Biden’s predecessor, Trump, who successfully eliminated terrorists with drone strikes and rescued kidnapped US nationals from Iran without having to spend a dime.
The move, reminiscent of Obama’s $1.7 billion helicopter cash delivery to the terrorists in 2016, has been decried by many as a sore affront to the American people. Especially, as the nation continues to face a growing drug endemic and settlement claims from Maui wildfire victims, 22 years after the tragic loss of over 3,000 loved ones at the twin-tower bombing.
Challenged by the BRICS alliance and uncertain about the antics of OPEC, Biden is forced to explore oil supplies from terrorist countries. The latest move with Iran is believed to be an attempt to strike oil deals in a growing anti-US Gulf region.
Still, $6 billion unlocked liquidity is a massive bonus for Iran. Even as it continues to develop nuclear capabilities, and execute terrorist attacks on Israel—America’s supposed ally.
