Treasury Dept Accuses Iran of Working with Al Qaeda: Obama Rejects Sanctions

Iran & al qaeda

This is coming from inside Obama’s own administration. It’s not Dick Cheney or Donald Rumsfeld talking. And still Obama insists on pandering to Iran, letting it go nuclear and accusing skeptics of seeking war.

The Obama administration charged that Tehran has allowed senior al Qaeda members operating from Iranian soil to facilitate the movement of Sunni fighters into Syria.

The allegation by the Treasury Department on Thursday would suggest that elements of Iran’s government or military were at least tacitly supporting the opposing sides of Syria’s civil war.

Iranian officials denied the accusations, saying Washington was harming diplomatic efforts aimed at ending the international standoff over Tehran’s nuclear program.

This is Iran’s Get Out of Jail Free card for everything. “You’re damaging the diplomatic effort.” This is why Iran is playing out the diplomatic game because it knows that the Chamberlains don’t have the guts to end the diplomatic hoax no matter what it does.

The Iranian government is Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s closest military and diplomatic ally. U.S., European and Arab governments have repeatedly charged Iran’s elite military unit, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or IRGC, of deploying soldiers to Syria to bolster Mr. Assad’s regime, an accusation Iran has denied.

U.S. officials, however, have intermittently accused Tehran and the IRGC of colluding with Sunni militant groups, who historically are enemies of Tehran’s Shiite government, but also are fighting the U.S. and its allies.

On Thursday, the Treasury Department sanctioned three IRGC officers for allegedly providing support for Afghanistan’s Taliban, a hard-line Sunni group.

Nothing to see here. Just the diplomats of Iran hard at work.

    “Report: Senior al Qaeda facilitator ‘back on the street’ in Iran”

    Shia and Sunnis can work together while at the same time killing one another.

    Liberals do not believe this, but they are bullheaded retards.

    Yasin al Suri (a.k.a. Ezedin Abdel Aziz Khali) is in Iran using it as a base to harm the U.S. and Europe. He also is a go between for Al Nusrah in Syria and was for ISIS before its’ split with Al Qaeda

    So Al Qaeda is trying to kill the Iranian ally Assad in Syria and yet Iran is working with Al qaeda in Iran.

      By promoting AQ in Syria, Iran stinks up any possibility that the West will intervene in the conflict.
      The amount of said support is metered — so that it’s never enough to swing the campaign in favor of the Sunni fanatics.
      In the meantime, the Hez is tuned up — with the Sunnis used for live-fire practice.
      The ramp in AQ visibility was right in tune with Benghazi and Barry’s impulse to boost support for the anti-Assad forces.
      Their cause ducked a bullet with the chemical weapons fricas. Once Barry gets going, no dictator can rest easy.
      See Libya.

        I agree with the metered comment. But how does it exactly work? Only so much money allowed to be laundered or so many supplies transported or people entering and exiting Iran

        But when it comes to Al Qaeda using Iran as a transit point to send couriers or money to Western Europe, the Americas or any other part of the world, I think Iran might not meter as much.
        Their main concern would be that the West would not trace it back to them with enough conviction to do anything about it.

    Yasin al Suri Al Qaeda operative in Iran

    “Operating under an agreement between al-Qaida and the Iranian Government, al-Suri moves money and al-Qaida recruits from the Middle East through Iran and on to Pakistan and Afghanistan. Iranian authorities maintain a relationship with al-Suri and have permitted him to operate within Iran’s borders since 2005.”

    I got the picture form the WordPress site below. It seems to be a good and interesting site.

    Muslims working with muslims. Shocking. So what about Obama and al-Nusra? Apparently that’s just fine.
