Fantastic! John Kerry: Some of Iranian Funds Could be Sent to Terrorist Groups
And they wonder why Israel was against the Iranian nuclear deal?
With Hezbollah, Hamas and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard operating outside its borders?
John Kerry today admitted the billions of dollars the Obama administration gave to the Iranian regime “could be” sent to terrorist groups.
Al Arabiya reported:
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry admitted on Thursday that some of the funds Iran will recover as a result of sanctions relief could be directed to groups that Washington considers “terrorist” organizations.
His remarks at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, come as the United States lifts a litany of sanctions levied on the Islamic Republic over its nuclear program as part of a deal implemented this month following years of talks.
Kerry had earlier said the U.S. stands by separate new ballistic missile-related sanctions on Tehran, a move Iran described as “bizarre”.
When asked by U.S. broadcaster CNBC, however, whether a portion of the funds unblocked by the lifting of the nuclear sanctions would be directed to organizations Washington labels as “terrorist”, Kerry replied: “I think that some of it will end up in the hands of the IRGC or of other entities, some of which are labelled terrorists.”
“I’m not going to sit here and tell you that every component of that can be prevented.”
