He’s been out of office for three months, yet we are still living with the terrible results of President Obama’s leadership.
Honestly, we’ll be living with the consequences of the Obama administration for years to come.
Just because we have Trump in the White House, doesn’t mean Obama’s stain goes away immediately. While President Trump has already rolled back many of the former administration’s policies, there are certain decision that will affect us for quite a while.
We know that programs like Obamacare will plague citizens—that is, until it is repealed. But other things, like judge appointments, weak immigration policies, and bad trade deals can and will affect us even after Trump makes better decisions.
That’s just how the system works.
Perhaps one of the worst decisions Obama made was regarding Iran. We all were shocked to learn that President Obama sent over $2 billion to the rogue nation—something he was not held accountable for.
Yet the Iranian Nuclear Deal was even worse, which rolled back needed sanctions to keep Iran in check and paved a way for them to get nukes.
A part of that terrible deal was the release of fourteen Iranian prisoners. While they were swapped for U.S. captives, it released some dangerous men back into the world.
Just how dangerous? You’re not going to like this.
Former President Barack Obama lied to the American people about the infamous prisoner swap that was part of the Iran deal in 2016, and released fugitives who were considered major national security threats, according to an investigative report by Politico…
The seven men released on that day as a “humanitarian” gesture were deeply tied to Iran’s nuclear arms efforts, and one was connected with procurement for improvised explosive devices (IEDs) that killed American soldiers in Iraq…
Three allegedly were part of an illegal procurement network supplying Iran with U.S.-made microelectronics with applications in surface-to-air and cruise missiles like the kind Tehran test-fired recently, prompting a still-escalating exchange of threats with the Trump administration.
Another was serving an eight-year sentence for conspiring to supply Iran with satellite technology and hardware.
These weren’t your run-of-the-mill, blow up vest kind of terrorists. These were highly experienced men who were supplying the rogue nation with sophisticated tools to advance their weaponry. Not good.
Worse yet, while Obama and top officials knew about the dangers of these men, the public and even government officials were not told.
Politico alleges that much of the dealing going on internationally was done so without many DOJ officials knowing. Some individuals with DOJ had been spending decades attempting to infiltrate the networks where these types of individuals operate.
Now there is news that Iran continues to violate the deal, by secretly conducting tests that will give them nukes.
Breitbart News has reported on new findings out of Iran indicating that the Iranian regime is violating the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), the formal name for the nuclear deal, by covertly developing nuclear material near the “off-limits” Parchin military site.
I’m sure these released fugitives have a hand in helping Iran today. Dangerous men who worked to steal technology, weapons, and even airplanes for Iran were set free to continue their work. We are closer to seeing a nation that has vowed the destruction of the United States and our allies gain weapons of mass destruction.
And Obama lied to the American public about it.
