Obama is now advising banks to bypass the U.S. sanctions with Iran!
The State Department has disclosed that Obama officials are giving guidance on how to grant the Islamic Republic access to frozen assets worth BILLIONS!
The Obama administration would not comment when pressed by reporters!
Imagine that! The “most transparent” (#Sarcasm) administration in the history of the world has no comment!
The FreeBeacon reports:
State Department Deputy Spokesman Mark Toner told reporters that the U.S. is committed to helping Iran access billions of dollars in frozen assets that are currently stored in banks across the globe. Some financial institutions have been hesitant to deal with Iran following the comprehensive nuclear agreement out of fear that such transactions might violate U.S. sanctions barring transaction with the Islamic Republic.
“It is incumbent upon us to live up to our end of this deal,” Toner said, referring to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. “Part of that is to, you know, is to advise these banks and governments.”
Toner explained that foreign banks “don’t want to violate existing U.S. sanctions” and that the administration is mandated by the nuclear agreement to inform banks about “the extent of U.S. sanctions relief.” He was unsure of whether the administration was “proactively” advising banks or only responding to their inquiries.
Toner appeared to agree with a reporter’s assessment that the Obama administration is essentially helping foreign governments “avoid U.S. sanctions.” However, he later said that the administration is not promoting loopholes in the U.S. sanction regime against Iran.

You lose control! You lose respect! The child will not take you seriously!
Barack Obama, with almost 8 years under his belt, still does not seem to understand the basics of leadership!
