The last three Democrat Presidents have been terrible for the US and great for Iran.
Jimmy Carter allowed the overthrow of the Iranian government in 1979 by holding the Iranian army back from launching a military coup. Carter’s mismanagement ultimately led to Iran’s terrorist state which is responsible for thousands of murders and terrorist actions since coming to power.
Bill Clinton attacked Iraq, Iran’s enemy. Clinton may not have bombed Iraq to help Iran as much as to change news headlines in the US. He ironically found it good timing to bomb Iraq just as it was uncovered that White House intern Monica Lewinsky had a dress that could prove his lying in the scandal that eventually led to his impeachment and disbarment. Clinton’s bombing of Iraq, sometimes referred to as ‘Monica’s War’, helped Iran, the enemy of Iraq.
But Barack Obama is the worst. Shortly after his inauguration Obama pulled troops out of Iraq. In doing this he handed Iraq over to the very entity that was responsible for the deaths of 500 American soldiers in Iraq – Iran.
Next Obama and his Secretaries of State, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, began building a platform for holding negotiations with Iran. Hillary is referred to as ‘the groundskeeper’ who made the deal possible. Kerry and Obama next stepped in to close the deal.
As explained in Obamabomb: A Dangerous and Growing National Security Fraud, the nuclear deal with Iran and the Obama administration’s defense of it are rife with deceptions and outright lies. False narratives were provided by the Obama administration to the press to praise the terrible deal that involved the Obama administration providing $150 billion in sanctions relief to Iran after Iran complied with certain requirements. Verification of Iran complying with the deal and not working on gaining nuclear bomb capabilities were not in place in the deal and Obama may have broken the law in ensuring the deal’s execution.
Months after it occurred, news broke that the Obama administration secretly sent $400 million in cash equivalents on an unmarked cargo plane to Iran on January 17, 2016, to facilitate a swap that day of four innocent Americans held by Iran. Seven Iranian criminals held by the US were also released. Obama said that it was not a ransom for the release of the prisoners but later the State Department admitted it was. Another $1.3 billion was later reported as also being provided to Iran.
Former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, stated that nobody could have predicted that the US foreign policy with Iran could have failed so decisively as it did with the Obama/Kerry/Clinton deal with Iran.

Now Jewish News Service Yeshiva reports that Iran sent the millions of dollars it received from the Obama Administration to terrorist group Hezbollah:
According to a Saudi Arabian newspaper report on April 25th, Hezbollah had received $600 million worth of Iranian aid. The Al-Youm newspaper reported that the aid was transferred almost completely in hard cash, and is being used for the terror group’s institutions and salaries paid to its terrorists and their families.
Hezbollah is a terrorist organization that is headed by Hassan Nasrallah, its Secretary general. It was conceived by Muslim clerics and funded by Iran primarily to harass the Israelis who had entered Lebanon to increase stability in the north. Its leaders were followers of Ayatollah Khomeini, and its forces were trained and organized by a contingent of 1,500 Revolutionary Guards that arrived from Iran with permission from the Syrian government, which was in occupation of Lebanon at the time.
Hezbollah receives money from several sources including monies received from Shiite businessmen abroad, charity taxes, profit from Shiite websites in Iraq; and money received from Shiite imams in Iraq and abroad.
Giving $400 million in cold hard cash to Hezbollah is criminal.
