ELDER PATRIOT – It’s becoming apparent that Barack Obama’s policy of engagement with Iran was much more sinister than the mainstream media reported.
In February we reported that Michael Ledeen, a former consultant to the National Security Council and U.S. Defense Department, recounted that Obama opened a backchannel with Iran through retired Ambassador William G. Miller, who also led the 1979 negotiating mission during the Iran hostage crisis during the 2008 presidential campaign.
In an article titled Obama’s Latest Big Lie: ‘We Have No Strategy’, Ledeen asserted:
“The actual strategy is detente first, and then a full alliance with Iran throughout the Middle East and North Africa.”
The MSM remained silent. The reaction to Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lobbyist makes it obvious that the MSM’s silence in protecting Obama was the result of orders from their Deep State handlers.
Anyone who thinks the MSM is the final arbiter of what you read and hear is naïve.
Now here’s more proof of how the MSM willingly muzzles itself in furtherance of the New World Order.
Writing in the Washington Free Beacon, Adam Kredo reports that:
“The Obama administration likely hid information about Iran illicitly ferrying militants into Syria on commercial aircraft in order to promote the landmark nuclear deal and foster multi-billion dollar business deals with Tehran’s state-controlled airline sector.”
“Photographs provided to Congress show Iran using Iran Air to ferry these soldiers between 2016 and 2017, in part when the Obama administration removed sanctions on Iran Air and promoted multi-billion dollars sales between the carrier and aircraft manufacturer Boeing, which is seeking to provide Iran Air with a fleet of new planes that many suspect will be used to carry terrorist fighters and weapons into regional hotspots.”
Some Congressional leaders are calling for an investigation because this is a violation of international laws governing the nuclear deal.
Rep. Peter Roskam (R., Ill.) explained that, “The Obama administration lifted sanctions against Iran Air as a political concession during nuclear negotiations with Iran, not because of any change in its activity” and while senior Obama administration officials, led by then Secretary of State John Kerry, embarked on an extensive international tour acting as Iran’s Chamber of Commerce promoting trade deal with Iranian companies, including Iran Air. All this while Iran Air was being used to ferry militants into Syria.
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.) sits on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. He told the Free Beacon that:
“As the Obama administration was shipping palettes of cash to Iran, the mullahs were sending militants to wage jihad in Syria. The Obama administration turned a blind eye to this and other transgressions because it was so intent on delivering major sanctions relief to the world’s leading state-sponsor of terrorism, the Iranian government.”
The MSM’s role in covering Obama’s tracks while he paved the way for a nuclearized Iran, turned a blind eye to what amounted to an invasion of Syria, and his lifting of economic sanctions while supplying cash to build a more robust Iranian economy, cannot be overstated.
There’s simply no way to deny the facts of this.
According to on seasoned advisor:
“The Obama administration actively politicized and downplayed intelligence about Iran to preserve the deal. They had State remove references to Iranian terrorism, had Justice ignore Iranian sanctions-busters and proliferated, and even had Energy buy off Iranian deal violations. So of course they had Treasury look the other way while the Iranians were facilitating Assad’s mass slaughter.”
Michael Rubin, a former Pentagon adviser and expert on rogue regimes:
“The Boeing deal is where corruption meets national security. One of the biggest proponents of the Iran deal was Thomas Pickering, a former ambassador whom the Obama administration brought in to assuage Congress and re-up its talking points in the media. Pickering never acknowledged, however—even to Congress—that at the time he had a lucrative consulting gig with Boeing in order to enable that company to profit off any Iran deal.
“What the heck did the Obama team think Iran would do with its Boeings? If they tallied up Iran’s annual air travel with the capacity offered by Boeing, they’d find that Iran was purchasing planes representing triple what Iran needed for its civilian transport. Frankly, the Boeing deal should have resulted in as many red flags as if Iran said it wanted to purchase high explosives and rocket engines. But, national security and reality were far down Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry’s lists of priorities.”
Have we forgotten that commercial airliners were the weapons of choice on 9/11?
It’s well past the point where we should be asking just whose side the MSM is on?
