Barack Obama is the world’s worst negotiator.
This has been true since he was a back-bench senator in Illinois. The stories of him getting rolled by pretty much everyone he has ever negotiated with is the stuff of legend.
So we shouldn’t be surprised after Iran rolled him on the nuclear deal and then rolled him again on the hostages that they would be back for another bite at the apple.
Turns out we didn’t have to wait long, as Right Wing News reports…
Now in, we’ll call the post-ransom period, another has come forward asking for cash. Our old buddy, “former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is asking President Obama to release nearly $2 billion in Iranian assets frozen in a New York bank account.”
The Hill reports that Mahmoud is back and may be considering another run for president next year.
I guess he plans to return to the election circuit as the conquering hero, with $1.75 billion in tow.
However, as you may recall – this is the same $1.75 billion that the Supreme Court voted 6-2 to disperse over 1,000 victims of various terrorist atrocities perpetrated on Americans over the years, “including the 1983 bombing of a Marine barracks in Beirut in the 1996 attacks on Saudi Arabia’s Cold War towers…”
“Iran is appealing the case at the international Court of Justice.” Court of Justice. Sounds like a place where superheroes gather. Not quite – more like super-leftists. But Mahmoud isn’t content to leave it in the hands of the courts. He instead has penned an open letter to Obama.
After a full paragraph of praising Allah and Mohammed, he gets down to it, spending the next couple paragraphs buttering up Obama – telling him that basically nothing is his fault. Birds of a feather, I suppose, as Obama has said the same for years.
However, Mahmoud doesn’t mention Bush specifically as does Obama – just past administrations that have been responsible for “about 60 years of oppression and cruelty by different American governments against the Iranian nation…”
