Iranian Bribe Threat Don’t Forget –Here are some under-reported stories to keep in mind when considering the news of the day, namely the untragic death of Gen. Qasem Soleimani, yesterday, Jan. 2, by American missiles.
Soleimani was considered the second most powerful man in Iran.
Soleimani was the guy who planned the Iranian militia attack on the Baghdad Embassy on New Year’s Eve.
He also planned the Benghazi embassy massacre on Sept. 11, 2012 along with a lot of other bad things.
The Obama Administration was using Benghazi to send weapons to rebels in Syria including al-Qaeda and what become ISIS. The policy was championed by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
When President Trump rescinded Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear deal — which had included giving the terrorist supporting regime $1.7 billion in CASH and freeing up to $150 billion in blocked assets — the Iranians threatened to reveal the names of Western officials who took bribes to make the deal happen.
About the time Iran was making this threat, John Kerry — Obama’s other secretary of state — was meeting with them arguably in violation of the Logan Act.
Kerry denied it at the time but later fessed up.
Badr Corps chief Hadi Ameri, who was also involved in this week’s Baghdad Embassy assault had been a guest of Obama at the White House. Ameri was among those arrested by U.S. forces yesterday.
Just some things to file in the back of your head as events unfold.
