Blood Money: CIA Director Reveals Obama-Iran Nuke Deal Is a Bailout, Funding the Slaughter of U.S. Troops

Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), often provided by the Islamic Republic of Iran, kill and maim many American soldiers. Tuesday, the CIA director inadvertently suggested that President Obama’s nuclear deal would rescue the Iranian economy, providing more funding to this state sponsor of terror. The unintentional implication is, nevertheless, true.

CIA Director John Brennan certainly didn’t mean to say it this way, but he clearly implied that the Obama nuclear deal with Iran will boost funding for the world’s most active state sponsor of terrorism — a terror sponsor that was apparently “too big too fail,” so Obama ordered a bailout for the Islamic Republic.

By lifting sanctions, the U.S. kickstarts the failing Iranian economy, and provides blood money to a nation whose shrapnel is embedded in the brains and torsos of innumerable U.S. troops who left their shattered limbs scattered in the desert, a nation whose activity and weapons are the cause on countless American death certificates, and whose armed agents today work to conquer U.S. influence — from Yemen, to Syria and Iraq, to North Africa and beyond.

I deduce this from two Brennan quotes in today’s New York Times — remarks he made Tuesday night at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. First, the CIA chief notes that Iran was on the brink of economic collapse.

“I think over time [Iranian President] Rouhani was able to explain to [Grand Ayatollah] Khamenei just how challenging the economic environment was in Iran right now, and it was destined to go down,” he said. “The only way they were going to address” the problem was to get sanctions lifted.

Then, at the end of the Times story, Brennan acknowledges that since the deal was about nukes and sanctions only, the Islamic Republic is free to continue its vigorous work as state sponsor of terrorism.

Mr. Brennan hinted he had little expectation that the agreement would change Iran’s behavior in the region, including its sponsorship of terrorism. And he acknowledged that the increased revenue Iran would receive as sanctions are lifted could bolster those efforts.

“I don’t think this is going to lead to a light switch and the Iranians are going to become passive, docile,” he said.

So, whether you believe that the aggressive nuclear monitoring and reduction of centrifuges from 19,000 to 6,000 will increase or decrease Iran’s “breakout time” to a nuclear weapon, or the likelihood of war with Iran, one thing you can know for sure: Lifting the sanctions will increase cash flow to the Iranian terror network.

American troops — as well as noncombatants — will pay for Obama’s nuclear deal with their flesh, their blood and their lives.
