Skip to comments.Iran's ex-president Ahmadinejad asks Obama to 'fix' $2B Supreme Court ruling
Posted on 08/08/2016 2:05:46 PM PDT by ColdOne
In the letter, posted on a website associated with the former president's office, Ahmadinejad focuses on the Supreme Court's decision in April. The court's 6-2 ruling allows families of victims of the 1983 Marine barracks bombing in Beirut and other attacks linked to Iran to collect monetary damages from Iran.
At risk for Iran is $1.75 billion in bonds, plus accumulating interest, owned by Iran's Bank Markazi and held by Citibank in New York.
"It is the clear expectation of the Iranian nation that the particular case of property seizure ... be quickly fixed by your excellency and that not only the Iranian nation's rights be restored and the seized property released and returned, but also the damaged caused be fully compensated for," the letter said.

“... your excellency...” ?!?
Probably how Baraq thinks he should be called.
King obie would love to fix that for you Ahkmed but you see; our system of government prevents a President from unilaterally overturning a Supreme Court decision even though many would have liked to many times for many reasons.
By the way, we are just about done with obie, do you want him back now?
That’s OK. Years ago Ahmadinejad asked Obama to “fix” America. Obama replied, “You took the words right out of my mouth.”
I’d fix it like this.
Iran owes each family of the deceased $500,000,000.
An excellent book about this is “The Root” by Eric Hammel
My guess is that John Kerry is personally delivering the Bonds this week, after all he was in Vietnam a know.
Yes, that's what the court has ordered be done with those funds... compensate the victims for the damage caused.
How about “your bullshiiteancy”? Or your a$$wipeancy?
That would work for me and i’ll bet that FReepers can come up with some real good names.
I don’t think Obama cares about a supreme court ruling.
Ahmadinejad Is putting the cart before the horse. Iran needs to kidnap a few more Americans first. Then stompy foot will play ball.
Obastard WILL fix it; DEPENDING ON HOW BIG HIS CUT IS.
Might have to wait another week. I saw he was playing beach volleyball in Rio.
Don’t put it past him. The One clearly thinks executive orders should take precedence over Supreme Court rulings.
