Western Leaders Make Secret Deal with Iran

Federal officials in the United States and United Kingdom have been accused of participating in a prisoner swap deal with Iran that grants the regime access to $7 billion in frozen funds.

As reported by Lebanese TV network Al Mayadeen, the US will release four detained Iranians and unfreeze $7 billion in exchange for the freeing of four Americans that have been accused of spying for the CIA. Separately, British leaders are said to have promised more than $5.5 million for the return of British-Iranian hostage Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

White House officials say the deal with Iran never took place.

“Reports that a prisoner swap deal has been reached are not true,” claims Ned Price, a spokesman for the US State Department. “As we have said, we always raise the cases of Americans detained or missing in Iran.”

It’s very possible the prisoner swap deal is fake news, but let’s not forget President Joe Biden’s long history of giving money to Iran.

Biden served as Vice President in 2015 when the US and allies signed the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran. The deal, which aimed to stop Iran from building a nuclear weapon, lifted economic sanctions and greatly expanded the regime’s ability to export oil, agricultural goods, and luxury items. 

Less than a year later, just days before Donald Trump’s inauguration, the Obama Administration agreed to unfreeze an additional $1.7 billion in Iranian assets in exchange for the return of journalist Jason Rezaian and three other Americans.

If Biden rejoins the Iran nuclear deal (as he has suggested), Tehran could receive up to $90 billion in addition to enhanced export opportunities that could add $50 billion or more to the regime’s coffers each year. 

Editor’s Note: If this is true, it is pure appeasement similar to what Neville Chamberlain did with the Nazis. This tactic didn’t work then and it will not work now.

    Alice, I did Nazi that comparison coming.

    I do think there is some nuance to your story, in that just like in 2015, it is Iran’s money. We are giving them access to their own money. I applaud you for at least trying to be truthful with your readers, even if you deliberately mislead them later in the article on The same subject.

    The deal was not disastrous. In fact, it had a more positive impact of Iran’s nuclear program than trump’s isolation plan. For proof, look at Larry’s column complaining how much closer Iran is to nuclear missiles today than they were while Obama was in office. They did NOT gain these capabilities in the last 100 days.
    America’s heavy handed approach to foreign affairs only leads to more enemies, more terrorists, and more terrorism. I did agree with trump when he said, “it’s time for America to stop being the world’s policemen”.

      I guess we should give them free reign to do whatever they want because
      they love us so much. What did they do that caused America to freeze
      their assets??? America is trying to protect our interests which is the right
      thing to do.
