Iran Using Commercial Aircraft for Terror-

Iran Using Commercial Aircraft for Terror—16hj.,b12-3

Just when we thought the Iran nuclear deal couldn’t get any worse, we were proven wrong, as a terrifying new plan involving commercial aircraft was uncovered. This is why the Iran deal is so terrible and needs to be undone.

Reportedly the Obama administration gave clearance to Western airline manufacturers to sell planes to Iran. This came on the heels of the discovery, according to the Washington Free Beacon, that the Islamic Republic had been using commercial airliners to smuggle weapons and other illicit goods to Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon.

The new intelligence that showed Iran has been using its commercial airline company to smuggle weaponry to terrorists operating in Syria has renewed interest in a congressional inquiry that has been hindered by Obama administration officials since October.

The new intelligence that showed Iran has been using its commercial airline company to smuggle weaponry to terrorists operating in Syria has renewed interest in a congressional inquiry that has been hindered by Obama administration officials since October.

Perdue accused the Obama administration on Wednesday of facilitating Iran’s terrorist operations by signing off on the multi-billion dollar deals to sell Iran planes, according to a letter sent to the Treasury Department.

“While I find your lack of a response to our last letter troubling, I would note that the issue surrounding commercial aircraft usage for illicit purposes by the Iranian regime has now expanded, given new intelligence information alleging that Iran has indeed been using Mahan Air —  a commercial airline that is currently subject to U.S. and U.N. sanctions — to smuggle weapons and ammunition to Hezbollah in Lebanon,” Perdue wrote.

Even more, Israelis reportedly sent an urgent letter that went out to the United Nations Security Council that stated, “These planes fly directly to the airport in Lebanon or Damascus and from there the weapons are transferred on the ground to Hezbollah.”

Perdue continued in his letter, “This report confirms precisely the fear we expressed in our Oct. 6 letter: that Iran continues to use commercial aircraft to smuggle weapons and ammunition in violation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2231 to support its terrorist proxies.”

He admonished the department further, saying, “We are rightly concerned that Iran may continue to do so with the new commercial aircraft it purchases from Boeing and Airbus, as permitted by the U.S. Treasury Department.”
