When Barack Obama signed his infamous nuclear deal with Iran, he released as few details as possible about it to the American people. With at least two people Donald Trump is naming to his cabinet, however, that is all about to change.
In choosing Kansas Republican Rep. Mike Pompeo to head the CIA and retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s nomination for national security adviser, Bloomberg reported that Trump might be indicating that he is planning to declassify information about how the Obama administration dealt with Iran.
Conservative Tribune reported that when Flynn retired from his post at the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014, he said that dealings between Al Qaeda and Iran were much closer than the Obama administration was making it seem.
“One letter to bin Laden reveals that Al Qaeda was working on chemical and biological weapons in Iran,” Flynn wrote in his book, which was published earlier in 2016. The retired Lt. Gen. also said that “a lot of information on Iran in the files and computer discs captured at the Pakistan hideout of Osama bin Laden.” He claimed that Obama had blocked this information from being released to the public, writing, “the censors have been busy.”
“Some of (the information) — tiny fraction — has been declassified and released, but the bulk of it is still under official seal. Those of us who have read bin Laden’s material know how important it is,” Flynn wrote.
As for Pompeo, he teamed up with Florida Senator Marco Rubio to send Attorney General Loretta Lynch questions about the $1.7 billion cash payments made to Iran earlier this year, which coincided with the release of a group of American hostages. This led many to suspect that Obama had paid a ransom for the hostages, blatantly violating U.S. policy.
When Lynch refused to respond, Rubio and Pompeo sent her a blistering open letter.
“It is frankly unacceptable that your department refuses to answer straightforward questions from the people’s elected representatives in Congress about an important national security issue,” they wrote. “Your staff failed to address any of our questions, and instead provided a copy of public testimony and a lecture about the sensitivity of information associated with this issue.”
We can only hope that Trump is going to be able to finally expose Obama’s lies and crimes in front of the world. SHARE if you think Obama should be in PRISON!
