Obama Admin Won’t Tell Congress How It Paid Iran $1.3 Billion in Taxpayer Funds

Remember the bundles of cash paid as ransom for kidnapped Americans?  Here's a good question, how did Obama ship another $1.3 billion to the Mullahs in Iran?

The Obama administration is withholding from Congress details about how $1.3 billion in U.S. taxpayer funds was delivered to Iran, according to conversations with lawmakers, who told the Washington Free Beacon that the administration is now stonewalling an official inquiry into the matter.

The Departments of State, Treasury, and Justice have all rebuffed a congressional probe into the circumstances surrounding the $1.3 billion payment to Iran, which is part of an additional $400 million cash payout that occurred just prior to the release of several U.S. hostages and led to accusations that the administration had paid Iran a ransom.

To say that this is unconstitutional is like saying that mowingdown down your opponent at tiddlywinks with a machine gun is not in the rule book.
