Yeah, I think he knew all of it. I also think he didn’t care on damn bit.
Iranian officials, in a first, have admitted to facilitating the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the U.S. by secretly aiding the free travel of al Qaeda operatives who eventually went on to fly commercial airliners into the Twin Towers in New York City, according to new remarks from a senior Iranian official.
Mohammad-Javad Larijani, an international affairs assistant in the Iran’s judiciary, disclosed in Farsi-language remarks broadcast on Iran’s state-controlled television that Iranian intelligence officials secretly helped provide the al Qaeda attackers with passage and gave them refuge in the Islamic Republic, according to an English translation published by Al Arabiya.
“Our government agreed not to stamp the passports of some of them because they were on transit flights for two hours, and they were resuming their flights without having their passports stamped. However their movements were under the complete supervision of the Iranian intelligence,” Larijani was quoted as saying.
The remarks represent the first time senior Iranian officials have publicly admitted to aiding al Qaeda and playing a direct role in facilitating the 9/11 attacks.
I think Obama had to know because of this:
The U.S. government has long accused Iran of playing a role in the attacks and even fined the Islamic Republic billions as a result. The U.S. 9/11 Commission assembled to investigate the attacks concluded that Iran played a role in facilitating the al Qaeda terrorists.
If a Republican president had done the Iran deal that showered Iran with billions of dollars out of the U.S. treasury, ignored or rescinded the sanctions, and enabled Hezbollah to carry out drug operations in the United States, he would have been impeached, and after removal from office he would be prosecuted for treason. Treason carries the death penalty and liberal opponents of the death penalty would be clammering for it.
Here is something everyone knows: Iran has been a sworn enemy of the United Stares since the Mullahs took over in 1979. Before that American tourists could visit Iran and could get there by any number of daily flights to Tehran. A good friend of mine had a girlfriend who was a flight attendant for long-gone Braniff Airlines. Tehran was her routine assignment. Obama’s Iran deal did not do one thing to bring those days back. What he did added assurance that those days will never come back.
Time to give back that Nobel Peace Prize, Mr. Obama.
