The owners were also accused of money laundering offenses, including giving their rental income to Bank Melli, which takes its orders from the leaders in Tehran. The judge's ruling states that the building's owner was not simply unaware of the connection, but was actively "providing services to assist Iran by shielding and concealing Iranian assets." The ruling avoids a trial, but can still be appealed.

If there is one appointment 0bama made that I concur with (even though he was on is way up..and a Democrat), it is Preet Bharara. I am a huge fan of this man. He and his team and cross agency cooperative efforts have brought some big time crooks and worldwide schemes to an end. He’d even have my vote for Attorney General. Listen to some of his speeches sometime. He is all business and I believe an honest and ethical man.

I guess the owners of the new muzzie Park 51 mosque next to ground zero don’t want the competition for money laundering and supporting terrorism.

Now the U.S. government says the building could be sold to compensate victims of "Iranian-sponsored terrorism."
Which should include many of the soldiers who died in Iraq and Afghanistan since our government has spent most of the last 12 years ignoring Iran's direct involvement in the fighting in both those countries.
