President Obama Said Pallet of Cash to Iran Because “Wire Transfers Not Available” – Records Indicate Wire Transfers Two Days Later…

When the discussion of possible ransom payments to Iran surfaced, everyone was wondering why the U.S. State Department sent pallets of assorted cash currency, totaling $400 million to Iran on January 17th 2016.   The same day the hostages were released.

On August 4th President Obama held a press conference to discuss the controversy and denied it was a “ransom payment” (see video).  Specifically, to answer the question of “why cash“, President Obama said:

[06:05] “and the only bit of news that is relevant on this, is the fact that we paid cash.  Which brings me to my last point.

The reason that we had to give them cash is precisely because we are so strict in maintaining sanctions, and we do not have a banking relationship with Iran, that we couldn’t send them a check; and we could not wire the money.

And it is not at all clear to me why it is that cash, as opposed to a check or a wire transfer has made this into a news story”. [06:46]

However, two days later, January 19th 2016, the U.S. Treasury wired Iran 13 individual payments for $99,999,999.99 , each with an independent MICR, totaling $1,299,999,999.87.

Claudia Rosett was the first to discover the payments:

They were all made on the same day, all sharing the same file and control reference numbers, all certified by the U.S. Attorney General, but each assigned a different identification number. They add up to $1,299,999,999.87, or 13 cents less than the $1.3 billion Messrs. Obama and Kerry announced in January. (link)

Apparently President Obama was not being honest about why pallets of cash were sent and unloaded, and about the ability of the U.S. being able to wire Iran the funds.

“Liar”

So the question is back on the table.  Why send $400 million via pallets of currency?

This absolutely looks like a ransom payment now.

    New Report Finds Obama Assisted Khamenei Regime to Crush Rebellion – Hundreds Died, Thousands Were Imprisoned
    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/08/new-report-finds-obama-assisted-khamenei-regime-crush-rebellion-hundreds-died-thousands-imprisoned/
    It links to the original article. The money quote for me is this:
    “Solomon reports that Obama ordered the CIA to sever contacts it had with the green movement’s supporters. “The Agency has contingency plans for supporting democratic uprisings anywhere in the world. This includes providing dissidents with communications, money, and in extreme cases even arms,” Solomon writes. “But in this case the White House ordered it to stand down.”

I am surprised that he just does not send a billion in cash to his personal account off shore and announce it at a press briefing and say, :Look, I worked damn hard for this billion, and deserve it,” Who wants to bet, nothing would ever be done about it?

      Remember how the “cooler than cool” Obama regime encouraged Iranians to use Twillter for their “revolution”? He sent them to slaughter by working with Nokia and Iran to install software to track the IP addresses/locations of the dissident tweets.

      Nokia Siemens Networks and the Mullahs
      There are reports that the Mullahs have an impressive array of technology to track tweets within their borders, and are simply allowing the logging programs enough time record the IP addresses of dissidents.

      The IP addresses can be matched to email header info, and message content can be identified using deep packet inspection. They may be giving the opposition time to hang themselves.

      [Nokia Siemens Networks, suppliers to the Mullahs of Iran] When question about the capabilities that Nokia-Siemens-Networks has delivered to the Iranian regime, their spokesman said that the company “does have a choice about whether to do business in any country” but said, “We believe providing people, wherever they are, with the ability to communicate is preferable to leaving them without the choice to be heard.”

            I was working at IBM when IBM handled the Clinton regime transfer of all that ballistic missile technology to China. 1998-99. My brother-in-law was one of a handful of operators of the “wide band” tech used to send it. He had been a 1-rated (that’s the top) manager but by this point he was retired and working there as a contractor. He was astonished at what he saw going on and the amount and size of the transmissions, for MONTHS.

            Their are very, very few tech companies (if any) whose hands are clean. ALL that I am aware of (including CISCO going WAY back) have enabled the very worst regimes by enabling the transfer of our tech and wealth, as well as indirectly killing millions. And we wonder why the tech, banking and other industries are so scared of Trump? He could and very well may expose every one of them. They could not be dirtier if they tried. This is a direct side-effect of globalism: zero loyalty. They’d as soon kill us as sell to us (and they do NOT want to employ us anymore), and I’m not kidding.
