“Millions for tribute, but not one cent for defense,” appears to be the rallying cry for this administration.
The Iranian regime does not deserve a single cent from any disputed arms deal from the Shah’s era, or indeed from any agreement with the civilized world. We should be starving them for cash, not airlifting it to them.
If, as the administration says, the action was just and correct, why the secrecy? Why the midnight airlift in an unmarked plane? Can anyone give me a reasonable explanation that does not suggest that our own executive branch is actively supporting a sworn enemy?
I can’t say it any clearer than that, however painful it is.
