Wooden pallets stacked with euros, Swiss francs and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said.

The money represented the first installment of a $1.7 billion settlement the Obama administration reached with Iran to resolve a decades-old dispute over a failed arms deal signed just before the 1979 fall of Iran’s last monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

The settlement, which resolved claims before an international tribunal in The Hague, also coincided with the formal implementation that same weekend of the landmark nuclear agreement reached between Tehran, the U.S. and other global powers the summer before.

“With the nuclear deal done, prisoners released, the time was right to resolve this dispute as well,” President Barack Obama said at the White House on Jan. 17 — without disclosing the $400 million cash payment.

    Why do we have to give money to ANY country? How many times have we saved the fcking world ass? How many countries have paid us back? Has Haiti, paid us back? Has any country we’ve given financial aid to paid us back? We dole out hundreds of billions each year in foreign aid, yet were still $20 trillion in debt and its climbing every second. When is enough, enough?

      Maybe he just used that “free O’Dumbo money”! You know, the money from his “stash” that all the black people thought he had promised them when he was campaigning! And all this time, I thought Congress held the “purse strings”!

    The money was INTENTIONALLY paid in foreign currency to avoid the “drop” as being considered money laundering or structuring. This is another treasonous act but what do we hear??? Not a damn word from MSM about the cash but, rather, they’ve portrayed obama as a hero by finally stepping up to the plate and “honoring” the terms of an “old” agreement. Another $400M to an enemy combatant country who wants to wipe us out along with Israel. Does anybody else connect the dots here??? The Lyin King has monetarily armed i ran with billions of dollars so they can buy nuclear weapons to carry out their long term plan and I believe he has done so 200% intentionally as his distain for this country is well known.
