Josh (Not) Earnest Admits That Some of Iran Cash Will Go To Terrorists

Josh seems a little testy, too, pushing back against the idea that the pallets of unmarked bills delivered to the Iranians was a ransom, and coming close to asking “what difference does it make?”

Not that Josh is telling us anything that John “Lurch” Kerry hasn’t already told us.

Here’s where Josh gets snippy with CBS’ Margaret Brennan asking “Why is that relevant?” when asked about that YUGE pile of cash.

From The Daily Mail:

The administration is aggressively pushing back on reports that the $400 million was in exchange for US hostages in spite of local reports that quoted Iranian defense officials describing the money as a ransom payment.

It is also refusing to say how the $1.7 billion was paid. Earnest said Wednesday that details like what was included in the Wall Street Journal report are make for ‘colorful’ reporting but do not change the baseline facts.

He contended that its irrelevant as to whether the money was wired or delivered as paper currency.

Officials say the $400 million was paid in foreign currency, because transactions with Iran in US dollars is illegal in the United States.

It was such a large amount of cash that the US was forced to transfer the money into the central banks of the Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Irrelevant whether the money was wired or delivered as cash? Which is easier to handout to terrorist fighters? Isn’t there a reason people up to no good like to “spread the cash around?”



  1. Way back on Sunday, Feb. 2, 2015, I told listeners to The Teri O’Brien Show that Barack Obama had a secret plan to build up Iran, to make it a regional power, as payback to imperialistic “Amerika,” a country that Leftist interpretation of history say, in a horrible act, “installed” the Shah back in the 1950’s, and as a way to cut the U.S. down to size by making other countries more powerful. In addition to the approach to Iran dictated by his leftist ideology, I don’t think we should discount the influence of Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s surrogate mom/office wife, who was born in Iran. She, of course, also shares his leftist ideology, as well, so has ample reason to want to empower Iran.
