Skip to comments.Iran to Receive $550 Million on February 1 As nuclear deal is implemented, Iran will receive

Iran will receive the first $550 million installment of a total of $4.2 billion in previously blocked overseas funds on or about February 1, a senior U.S. official told Reuters on Sunday.
The money will be transferred to Iran as part of the implementation of the nuclear deal reached with it in Geneva on November 24.
Earlier Sunday, President Barack Obama confirmed that the agreement would be implemented starting January 20. Under the agreement, six major powers agreed to give Iran access to $4.2 billion in revenues blocked overseas if it carries out the deal, which offers sanctions relief in exchange for steps to curb the Iranian nuclear program.
Some payments are contingent on Iran diluting its stockpile of 20 percent enriched uranium to no more than 5 percent enriched uranium. The U.S. official, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said that the first $550 million will be transferred February 1, and will be followed by another $450 million on March 1.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Some people might say my life is in a rut,
But I’m quite happy living with what I got
People might say that I should strive for more,
But I’m so happy I can’t see the point.
Somethings happening here today
A show of strength with your boy’s brigade and,
I’m so happy and you’re so kind
You want more money - of course I don’t mind
To buy nuclear textbooks for atomic crimes
And the public gets what the public wants
But I want nothing this society’s got -
I’m going underground, (going underground)

Seems to me Iran got off scott free here, to do whatever the sam hell it wants with regard to nuclear weaponry.
Zero keeps making me look like a sage with this tag-line.
Is this another typical, Congressional Bypass by Commie Obama?
If so, the House should mothball Air Force 1, 2 and 3 until February 1, 2017.
$4.2 BILLION for not doing something.
stupid. stupid. stupid.
what fools we are!!!!!!
What Kind of Fool Am I
And how did this get through the House?
Aren’t they in control of the purse strings?
Did Odumbass simply decree it?
I know, right? I won't build nukes for only $2 billion. Therefore, if Obama takes my deal instead of Iran's deal, that means a potential savings to the taxpayer of $2.2 billion!
Kerry and Obama accelerating Iran’s nuclear ambitions...
Good job, guys.
I thought that the money was Iran's money which we had impounded. We would then be releasing a portion of it if they promise to behave. I don't agree with it but I don't think it involves the house.
There, fixed it!
let’s not let facts interfere with a good rant!
This is how the enemy from within sabotages us in broad daylight and gets a way with it. Our side is so blind so dumb when it comes to strategy they just don’t get it.
> the first $550 million will be transferred February 1, and will be followed by another $450 million on March 1. Other installments of $450 million and $550 million each will follow until July 20...
And because of Zero’s Rule-By-Decree approach, this will happen whether the Senate ratifies or not — but the Senate *will* ratify. Thanks Nachum.
