Iran attempted to buy nuclear technology illegally 32 times, German agency says ^ | 9-Oct-2017 | By Benjamin Weinthal, Fox News

Posted on 10/09/2017 4:55:29 PM PDT by topher

Iran tried to obtain illicit technology that could be used for military nuclear and ballistic missile programs, raising questions about a possible violation of the 2015 agreement intended to stop Tehran’s drive to become an atomic armed power, according to three German intelligence reports obtained by Fox News.

The new intelligence, detailing reports from September and October and disclosed just ahead of President Trump’s planned announcement Thursday on whether the U.S. will recertify the Iran deal, reveals that Iran’s regime made “32 procurement attempts … that definitely or with high likelihood were undertaken for the benefit of proliferation programs.”

According to the document, the 32 attempts took place in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The report lists Iran as a nation that engages in proliferation, which is defined as “spreading atomic, biological or chemical weapons of mass destruction.”

I believe President Trump is negating this deal SHORTLY.

This news is overshadowed by North Korea, but Iran/North Korea are trying to partner on things...

This should read, “Iran attempted to buy nuclear weapons technology illegally 32 times” because President Obama’s Iran Agreement explicitly allowed and even encouraged Iran to procure dual use and gray area nuclear weapons technology and obligated the United States to provide such technology and hardware when requested by Iran.

There is not much in the way of nuclear weapons technology that the Obama Iran Nuclear Framework prevented Iran from acquiring so they must be actively trying to get their hands on very sensitive weapons grade technology.

Well, of course the are.

It’s time to charge Obama and his comrades with treason.

They knowingly “aided and abetted” our enemies in a time of war, even if the war is undeclared.

And that’s just one act of treason out of many. It absolutely blows my mind from here to Kingdom come the kind of abuse Trump gets on a daily basis as compared to Obama, it’s unreal and really shows to me the extent of enemy infiltration in our government. This Obama is guy who KNEW Bowe Bergdahl was a defector to the enemy, yet he played along anyway with this “prisoner of war” scam designed by the Taliban and Bergdahl SOLELY to have an excuse to free 5 Taliban commanders. That’s FIVE acts of treason right there, and the arrogance of that puke to hold a press conference propping Bergdahl up as a hero. And then holding clearance sales at Gitmo for 8 long years, effectively reinforcing the enemy over and over and over and over and over, and then we get into Libya arming Al Qaeda to take the leader of a country that was neutral to us then protecting Al Qaeda after they murdered 4 Americans in Benghazi using those weapons, it’s absolutely unreal.

It gets worse with Bergdahl.

Obama was obviously under serious time pressure to do the Bergdahl swap due to the way the swap and release went down.

Obama even refused to notify Congress of the release five Taliban high level leaders which was illegal and a serious violation of Terrorism laws.

One reason why he may have done this was because a week or so later, al Qaeda initiated their invasion of Iraq (using American supplied Toyota trucks) to launch the ISIS war to establish the Islamic Caliphate in Iraq, Syria, Jordan, etc.

Obama released the five Taliban generals to Qatar, which we now know was the primary command and control center and financier for ISIS.

These Taliban generals were ones who were responsible for the defeat of Russia in Afghanistan and who later established the terror training centers to spread Jihad to the world, trained the terrorists from all around the world who came to Afghanistan to learn jihad, and who were the point of contacts with the world wide network of al Qaeda franchises the Afghanistan trainees established when they returned to their native countries across the globe.

A strong case can be made that these generals contributed heavily to the establishment and mobilization of the tens of thousands of Jihadi who converged on Syria and Iraq and were strangely able to form a well trained, well equipped and well led cohesive fighting force of 60,000 + fighters from scratch in a matter of months from their command and control centers in Qatar..

“turn every cent the pacifist idiots gave them into debt plus interest”

Can’t do it. One of the things the deal Obama and Clinton did was force frozen assets in Iran’s foreign funds to the tune of billions back to them which started in January of 2016. The first recoup was for tens of billions from Japan and South Korea. And this was just the beginning as some American experts believe the freeze from many countries has reached more than $100 billion. But the figure is still unknown as these holdings started as early as 1979. And the “deal” is giving it back to them to sustain and fund terrorism and NBC weapons internationally. Thanks Barrack and Hilly.

The “Force” is strong in your thinking, Master Yoda!

But the “Force/Will” by our government to punish traitors and fools is very weak.

That needs to change pronto!
