Expensive error by Biden.

-2 ( +5 / -7 )

MAGAs will claim that Biden is delivering weapons to Hamas. I'm not sure what generates this level of idiocy but I suspect it comes from the Donald himself.

-2 ( +6 / -8 )

The money remains in the Doha bank so it wasn't used for Hamas.

3 ( +5 / -2 )

That’s odd someone just posted recently that Iran didn’t get 6 billion dollars.

yet here is an article all about it.

This not the time for petty party politics.

Deal with Hamas, terminate with extreme prejudice, If the invasion forces have to turn over every stone, rock, rubble to find these Hamas slaughtering scum I hope they suffer, no mercy.

How can any so called "religion" teach such unspeakable atrocity.

No, I did not post that. Again your extremist right-wing “interpretation” of what happened doesn’t actually match what really happened.

No one is claiming that.

The fact of the matter is, here we have another deal that should have never been made, no matter what, now that this admin committed itself to yet another blunder geopolitically, we are now in a world of poo.

Tehran will be free to do what it wants with the money, even though the administration says that it will be rigorously overseen by Qatar and used only for food, medicine, and other necessities. In fact, Iran’s president said just that in an interview Wednesday. “This money belongs to the Iranian people, the Iranian government, so the Islamic Republic of Iran will decide what to do with this money,” he told Lester Holt.

But just as notable is the Biden administration’s precious assurance about how Qatar can be trusted to make sure all is well.

Qatar just happens to be the longstanding home of the political leadership of . . . wait for it . . . ****Hamas. In fact, here’s some video of top Hamas honcho Ismael Haniyeh and other leaders of the terrorist organization celebrating this morning’s sneak attack – ****Allahu Akhbar! – in their comfy quarters in Doha. With Biden heavily (laughably) relying on Qatar to police Iran, bear in mind that Iran-backed Hamas has been formally designated as a terrorist organization under U.S. law for decades, and that Qatar has been harboring Hamas’s leadership for years.

Once again, this admin. cared more about a political goal and got suckered in completely.

has not yet been able to spend a single dollar of the $6 billion

But knowing they have it frees up all the money they were previously given to now fund terrorism, as Blinken admits.

it can only be used to purchase food, medicine, medical devices, and agricultural products for the people of Iran."

Oh really? What enforces this? Just like sure and Palestine spent some of the money Obama gave them on “climate change”

its pointless showing facts to MAGA, theyll believe in their alternate facts until it sinks them into oblivion

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Iran does not have much money "to free up".

2 ( +3 / -1 )

its meant to be used for Irans civilian's,

We know, but Qatar has a long history for supporting Hamas, the people Isreal is fighting against, they are to be trusted, not a single person in Israel believes Qatar.

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

The funds were not dispersed to Iran. Qatar's central bank is overseeing the funds, which are still in Doha.

cant get much more obvious than that, same facts reported by both left and right media.

oh I forgot maga only believes the media when it suits them LOL

Iran does not have much money "to free up".

I will soon enough.

its pointless showing facts to MAGA, they'll believe in their alternate facts until it sinks them into oblivion

I think it's the other way around and that is why this admin gets taken to the woodshed every single time.

In 2021, Iran continued providing weapons systems and other support to Hamas and other U.S.-designated Palestinian terrorist groups, including Palestine Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command. These groups were behind numerous deadly attacks [against Israel] originating in Gaza and the West Bank.

Iran does not have much money "to free up".

Iran 2021 GDP? 359.7 billion USD.

Plus the pallets of cash from Obama and Joe’s new 6 billion.

No world is going to smell worse than the one you will bring about if you force surrender in Ukraine.

With or without Iranian influences, the current situation urges us to focus on Palestinian-Israeli relations and on the latter's occupation so as to re-activate negotiations towards the two states solution. I refuse to seriously take opinions and interpretations emanating from US domestic politics.

Like I said, Europe can handle it. We can assist, but this is Europe’s call.

The iranian have the right to use it as they deem fit. was the Money colored for these morons to know whether it was funnelled to hamas.

Now Europe needs our help from the bad US. Smh….

Like the saying goes “when the US sneezes, everyone else catches a cold.” You hate us, but you need us since as you say you don’t have the armaments.

Not every European is anti-American. In fact it is usually Putin fans like yourself that end up being anti-American.

Iran needs a lot than just spending all its money on terrorism.

The Saudis also finance terrorism.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Yet Iran does finance terrorism as a priority.

Unlike Saudi.

this new 6 billion to Iran will also primarily finance terrorism. Nothing changes.
