Days after Iran received hundreds of billions of dollars in sanctions relief from the controversial nuclear deal, US Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday admitted a good portion of the massive funds will go to terror.
Speaking at the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Kerry spoke about the massive kickback Tehran is receiving after nuclear sanctions were lifted last weekend.
"I think that some of it will end up in the hands of the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) or other entities, some of which are labeled terrorists," he acknowledged to CNBC.
"You know, to some degree, I'm not going to sit here and tell you that every component of that can be prevented. But I can tell you this, right now, we are not seeing the early delivery of funds going to that kind of endeavor at this point in time." ...

They was the whole idea
From Real Clear Politics, Sept 10, 2015...
"In a 2014 New Yorker interview, Obama said his goal was to create a 'new equilibrium' in the Middle East.
In the short run, at least, his signature diplomatic undertaking can be counted on to bring more violence to this volatile region.
The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as the [Obama-Putin Iran deal] agreement is formally known, provides the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism an infusion of somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 billion of unfrozen assets and a great deal more of continuing revenues as businesses and governments around the world rush to profit from oil-and-gas-rich Iran's reintegration into the world economy.
The agreement relaxes the international isolation of the Islamic Republic and ratifies Tehran's status as a nuclear threshold state. And it relieves restrictions on Iran's acquisition of weapons, including ballistic missiles. ..."
Republican US presidential front-runner Donald Trump is apparently "honored" that Russian President Vladimir Putin considers the real-estate magnate a "flamboyant" and "very talented" man.
"It is always a great honor to be so nicely complimented by a man so highly respected within his own country and beyond," Trump said in a statement, according to Politico.
He continued: "I have always felt that Russia and the United States should be able to work well with each other towards defeating terrorism and restoring world peace, not to mention trade and all of the other benefits derived from mutual respect."

“US Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday admitted a good portion of the massive funds will go to terror.”
But..but...Obama gave a speech where he said that the money was promised by the mullahs to fund Iranian domestic spending and stuff. And that the people would hold them accountable if they broke that promise, or something.
Oh yeah, and we can just snap those sanctions right back in place, yessiree bob.
There are days I *really* hope this is all some extended bad dream, and I’m going to wake up to find it’s still the mid-80s, and Reagan is still running the show.
You may have said instead that you are a fool. It would have basically amounted to the same thing.
The left will always side with evil. They do not seem concerned that the evil will also target them. The definition of insanity.
That video clip of Kerry saying that this money the Obama administration gave to Iran is going to be used for killing Americans needs to be used every day by the GOP nominee this summer & fall.

The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
we had to implement it before we could find out what was in it.
Kerry has yet to be tried for betraying our country during Vietnam.
A couple hundred billion dollars and nuclear weapons for Iran... what could go wrong? People who haven’t got as many Purple Hearts as Kerry couldn’t possibly understand the big picture. /S

Now we know what he meant when he said “Inshallah”.
Hatred fosters vigilance and an uncompromising attitude toward the enemy, and leads to the destruction of everything that prevents Soviet peoples from building a happy life. The teaching of hatred for the enemies of the toilers enriches the conception of Socialist humanism, by distinguishing it from sugary and hypocritical philanthropy.This is what defines the left, ultimately. Comes straight from the god of this world.
Small Soviet Encyclopedia (Moscow, 1947, vol. XI, p. 1045).
We hate Christianity and Christians. Even the best of them must be considered our worst of enemies. They preach love of ones neighbor and mercy, which is contrary to our principles. Christian love is an obstacle to the development of the revolution. Down with love of our neighbor. What we want is hatred. We must know how to hate. Only then will we conquer the universe.
