OPINION | This article contains commentary which reflects the author’s opinion.
Before the end of 2020, Sen. Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, revealed the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), an office within the Obama Administration’s Treasury Department, granted a non-profit group’s request for a license to pay an organization sanctioned for funding terrorist activities.
Given the Obama administration covertly flew hundreds of $$ millions to the Iranians in the dead of night, this give-away to terrorists hell-bent on attacking America (sadly) seems trivial by comparison.
I commend Grassley for digging in, requesting, and disclosing this information, but what does he plan to do with said information? As in at least half the country, we knew Obama was incredibly corrupt, as was his Vice-President, but what is his plan to do with this information?
Wishful thinking that somebody ANYBODY will be held accountable for their actions! I guess it will be good for the history books if those aren’t banned and burned in our potentially new socialist/communist Country if this shameful election is allowed to stand.
To the left, one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.
When ISIS were selling women into sex slavery for $400 a pop, Obama was shipping Iran millions of dollars to fund similar activities further. Those women were sexually abused repeatedly and used as human shields to the point they hoped they would be bombed to end their suffering, as survivors put it. Kerry even admitted those funds would be used for this.
The Obamas only put out pictures saying, “bring back our girls.” While China was harvesting religious and political prisoners’ organs, the Biden family were making millions selling access to China.
While Russia invaded Crimea, Obama did his pitiful red line and offered Putin flexibility on a hot mic. The Clinton Foundation received millions from Russia for selling our uranium to them in the Uranium One scandal in the Hilary emails. This was covered up with the Russian Collusion hoax.
According to the U.S. Senate report:
In a press release, World Vision claimed they were not aware of ISRA’s status before partnering with them and appeared to shift the blame for this incident to the United States government. World Vision articulated two main reasons why they believe the federal government bears responsibility in this incident. First, they claim that on two separate occasions, two different government agencies were notified that World Vision was working with ISRA and neither agency raised any concerns. Second, World Vision argues that the online search tool provided by the Treasury department made it difficult to ascertain whether or not ISRA was a sanctioned entity. …
The United States government placed sanctions on ISRA in 2004 after they had funneled approximately $5 million to Maktab Al-Khidamat, the predecessor to Al- Qaeda controlled by Osama Bin Laden. ISRA’s leadership also engaged in discussions to help relocate Bin Laden to secure safe harbor for him.In the mid-2000’s, ISRA was responsible for moving funds to support a Palestinian terrorist. According to Treasury, when raising funds ISRA was known to display two “collection boxes marked ‘Allah’ and ‘Israel,’ signaling the funds would be directed towards attacks against Israelis.” …
In late September 2014, World Vision’s legal department was notified of ISRA’s potential status as a sanctioned entity. World Vision immediately ceased all payments to ISRA and began investigating whether ISRA was indeed a sanctioned entity. On November 19, 2014, World Vision sent a letter to OFAC requesting clarification of ISRA’s status. The letter also included a request for a temporary license to complete the existing contract with ISRA, despite their status, in the event that ISRA was indeed a sanctioned entity.
According to World Vision, OFAC took longer than expected to respond. During this time, World Vision’s field office in Sudan reported that ISRA and the Sudanese government were applying intense pressure on it to pay money owed for services performed. On January 20, 2015, two months after World Vision submitted its request for clarification to OFAC, World Vision General Counsel sent an email to OFAC informing them of World Vision’s intent to resume its work with ISRA in a week’s time unless it received a response from OFAC confirming ISRA’s sanctioned status.
On January 23, 2015, Treasury responded to World Vision’s November inquiry and informed it that ISRA is indeed a sanctioned entity. Furthermore, in the same letter OFAC denied World Vision’s request for a license to transact with ISRA, stating that authorizing further activities would be “inconsistent with OFAC policy.” On February 19, 2015, World Vision again requested a license to transact with ISRA in order to pay them $125,000 for services rendered. In its request, World Vision stressed that it could face severe legal consequences and even expulsion from Sudan if it did not pay ISRA the monies owed. On May 4, 2015, the Obama Administration’s State Department recommended OFAC grant World Vision’s request for a license to pay ISRA $125,000 in monies owed. The following day, OFAC granted World Vision a specific license to pay ISRA $125,000 only for services rendered.
Again, Obama was allowed to do it. It is about time for us true Americans to rise and put an end to the years of broken promises. Stop just living your day-to-day lives and pay attention to what’s going on in YOUR government. That’s how these things are allowed to happen.
Please pay attention to your representatives voting records and what are in the bills that they vote for. If your representatives don’t do what you want, vote them out. I’ve been upsetting many people (even in my own family) by publicly speaking out against the governor “his highness” Larry Hogan in the people’s republic of Maryland.
