Appearing on Hannity, Ted Cruz blasted Obama for what he called a “policy of appeasement” against Iran.
If you look at Iran policy I think you’ve seen a dramatic shift. Under Barack Obama, the policy was appeasement. The policy under the disastrous Iranian nuclear deal under Obama was to give over $100 billion to Iran.
They literally flew $1.7 billion in cash in unmarked bills on pallets in the dead of night into Iran.
In a very real sense, the missiles that we saw fired on U.S. service men and women tonight were paid for by the billions the Obama administration flooded the ayatollah with and if history teaches anything its don’t give billions of dollars who hate you and want to kill you.
Per the WSJ, A video from Jan. 17, 2016, shows an Iranian government jet as it departs Geneva, Switzerland, with $400 million in Swiss francs from the Obama administration. It was the same day four American prisoners were released from Iran.
In August of 2016, Obama defended his Iran cash payout.
