Washington (AsiaNews / Agencies) - For the first time in 35 years, Boeing has sold aircraft components to Iran. Breaking the news, the industry itself stated that it has sold "aircraft manuals, drawings, and navigation charts and data" to Iran Air.
The sale, which has yielded Boeing 120 thousand dollars, is the first since 1979, the year of the "hostage crisis" which was followed by United States sanctions on all trade useful to aviation.
The sale, said the company, took place between June and September this year, producing 12 thousand dollars in profits and was possible thanks to a US government license allowing Boeing, for a "limited period of time," to provide "spare parts that are for safety purposes" to Iran. Boeing is still not allowed to sell new planes to Iran.
The political motivations of the decision are highlighted in the note issued by Boeing stating that the trade in spare parts is "consistent with guidance from the US government in connection with ongoing negotiations". The reference appears to be an interim agreement between the 5 +1 (the five members of the Security Council plus Germany) and Iran over its nuclear program, which was signed in November.
Capitalism at it’s finest....anything for a buck. The only way this makes any sense is if the Feds are somehow behind this. Blows my mind, selling products to those who’ve been financing and directing islamic terrorism all over the world. Insane.
Had to be approved by Obama.
How many Marines do they get to murder
before Obola made nice nice for their genocide?
... project was probably initiated by ValJar.
100K would not even cover the annual wages for one of their over-paid, overtime sucking, strike for any reason, union drones.
“Had to be approved by Obama.”
Or, Obama matches every dollar Iran pays to Boeing.
Isn’t Iran under sanctions for its nuke program?
No, Valerie Jarrett Is Still Not Conducting Secret Talks With Iran

The White House is denying an Israeli news networks report that Valerie Jarrett, one of President Barack Obamas top advisors, has been secretly conducting negotiations with Iran for more than a year,
I wonder if the trolls here at FR will come to the Obama administration's defense. Maybe they are all still trolling the Ebola threads.
They will be here. It may take them a while to get here, but they will come.
The Caliph permitted this.
This is a joke right?? This was the theme of last Sunday’s Madame Secretary. Only in that plot the Iranians actually agreed to shut down reactor and open the sites to inspectors.
I aint going unless it’s a Boeing.
“project was probably initiated by ValJar”
And the insult of 120k profit as a motivator is there just to rub it in patriotic America’s face.
Ah, yes, but they can also be used as a flying bomb, I suppose.
