The United States has released $1 billion in cash assets to Iran in April alone under the interim nuclear deal aimed at ratcheting back Irans nuclear program, according to the White House.
The Obama administration unfroze Iranian assets totaling $550 million on April 10 and another $450 million on April 15. The United States has now released $2.55 billion to Iran since February, when the scheduled cash infusions first began.
The cash releases were contingent upon Iran halting some aspects of its nuclear program and scaling back its stockpiles of highly enriched uranium, the key component in a nuclear weapon.
In return, Iran was promised these monthly cash infusions from Washington.
While the White House maintains that Iran will receive about $7 billion in economic relief under the interim accord, outside experts calculate that with oil revenues and other business deals Iran could pocket at least $20 billion over the next several months.
Lawmakers remain concerned that the White House continues to release funds as Iran maintains its support for terrorism. . .

O’bastard is giving them money to build a bomb!
Iran will be Obama’s new home
Not really...just the other way around. How much of those billions do you think Obamba will pocket from the deal he made with the Iranians?
Personally, I’d like to see “O” spend his last days of freedom in a spider hole... like you know who! :)
Do it, Israel.
I think that Iran might be more Valerie Jarrett's hobby than BHO's. He bowed to the Saudis... maybe this conflict is tearing him up inside. /S
Not just money....but lifting the sanctions, too.
That should be more than enough to purchase a sizable amount of enriched uranium from Russia...
Isn't 2 Billion the estimate for fixing our grid and hardening chips country-wide in preparation for a possible EMP attack? An attack that could kill 80% of Americans if we're NOT prepared?
According to creepy democrats we don't have the money - guess it's going to Iran instead.
So the commander in chief is sending our money to a country that hates us and has sworn to eliminate us.
Kinda goes along with the commander’s philosophy - hate the USA and love our enemies.
They want nukes. Nukes are expensive. We supposedly don’t want them to have nukes because they will use them. So if we give them money they won’t be able to afford to build nukes, right?
More like Jizyah.
Thanks Brad from Tennessee.
