Well maybe it is for John “I-married-into-a-ton-of-money” Kerry. But it not for, err, the 99 percent of Americans that liberals like Kerry say they represent.
This astonishing observation came during a CNN interview in which Kerry tried to explain away the palette-load ransom of billions that were delivered to the Iranian terrorist leadership as part of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the Obama administration (mis)deal to give Iran a 10-year time out in its race to develop nuclear weapons. (See the YouTube video below as Kerry tries to weave a story that $150 billion–or is it just $55 billion–handed over is no big deal.
Well, I’ll let you try to fathom his explanation. For what it’s worth. But I would point out that Kerry himself said that “money is fungible.” That’s a lousy defense because it is an admission that while he and Obama said that the money would not go to terrorism, which even if true, would free up other money from different pots for export murder and mayhem around the world.
Fungible or not, Iran still owes the United States for the high crime of imprisoning 52 American diplomats and citizens,
holding them hostage for 444 days from November 4, 1979, to January 20, 1981. It was the liberal Carter administration that allowed Iran to get away with it and the liberal Obama administration that, in effect, granted absolution–in cold, hard cash.
By the way, the hostages were released on the day that Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president. Which should have put to rest the liberal tendency to see “negotiations” as always the way to settle such outrages.
