Well, just Damn!! What is to stop the Iranians from adulterating the anti-venom so it doesn’t work? What quality controls do we have to ensure the venom is what it is supposed to be? Talk about feeding the hand that bites you - literally and figuratively. Amazing.

Used to be, our CIA would use a third party to buy what we needed. Like when we bought titanium for the SR-71 from the Soviets through other companies.

“Pentagon lawyers are apparently trying to figure out whether these purchases violate U.S. sanctions against Iran.”

Who cares? If it’s the best antivenin, and our troops need it, then sanctions be damned. Let’s not forget the point of the sanctions, is to SERVE our foreign policy interests, not to impede them.
