Do you remember back when Obama administration helped adopt the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action involving Iran’s nuclear program, and they said we have to sign it to find out what was In it?
Well since then, very little information was given to the general public. But now, two of Trump’s cabinet picks could change this.
According to Bloomberg, these picks, Mike Pompeo to head CIA, Michael Flynn national security adviser, might show us that Trump has plans to declassify informations about the dealings with Iran.
After he retired in 2014, Flynn — formerly with the Defense Intelligence Agency — said that dealings between Al Qaeda and Iran were much closer than those in the Obama administration were letting on.
“One letter to bin Laden reveals that Al Qaeda was working on chemical and biological weapons in Iran.” Flynn said in a book published this year, according to The Weekly Standard.
Flynn also said that there was “a lot of information on Iran in the files and computer discs captured at the Pakistan hideout of Osama bin Laden.” He claimed that the Obama administration blocked a lot of the information connecting Iran and Al Qaeda, noting acidly that the “censors have been busy.”
“Some of (the information) — tiny fraction — has been declassified and released, but the bulk of it is still under official seal. Those of us who have read bin Laden’s material know how important it is,” Flynn wrote.
Next is Kansas Rep. Mike Pompeo, tapped to head the Central Intelligence Agency. According to The Washington Free Beacon, Pompeo — along with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio — sent questions to Attorney General Loretta Lynch involving the $1.7 billion cash payments made to Iran earlier this year. Those transfers, which seemed to neatly coincide with the release of several American hostages, led many to believe it was a ransom payment.
When Lynch declined to comply, Pompeo and Rubio sent the attorney general a strongly-worded letter.
“It is frankly unacceptable that your department refuses to answer straightforward questions from the people’s elected representatives in Congress about an important national security issue,” they wrote. “Your staff failed to address any of our questions, and instead provided a copy of public testimony and a lecture about the sensitivity of information associated with this issue.”
It is about time for Trump’s administration to do something and shed some light on the deal with Iran. We the people deserve to know the truth! He needs to do that for our security.
