This shouldn't shock anyone who knows the murderous role Iran played in the killing of U.S. troops in Iraq:
Iran is paying Taliban fighters $1,000 for each U.S. soldier they kill in Afghanistan, according to a report in a British newspaper.And today we also learned more about the secret nuclear weapons sites Iran is building underground.
The Sunday Times described how a man it said was a “Taliban treasurer” had gone to collect $18,000 from an Iranian firm in Kabul, a reward it said was for an attack in July which killed several Afghan government troops and destroyed an American armored vehicle.
The treasurer left with the cash hidden in a sack of flour, the newspaper said, and then gave it to Taliban fighters in the province of Wardak. In the past six months, the treasurer claimed to have collected more than $77,000 from the company.
The Sunday Times said its investigation had found that at least five Kabul-based Iranian companies were secretly passing funds to the Taliban.
What is Obama doing about all this? Next to nothing. Meaningless sanctions with no teeth and nothing that will put an end to Iran's murder of Americans and the potential threat of nuclear weapons.
What price will we pay for Obama's naive indifference? How many lives will be lost?
