In a development which can only be described as despicable, American banking and finance giants Citibank and Goldman Sachs have reportedly applied to open up branches in Iran.
We have not been able to confirm this report, however, which originated with Iran state-owned media.
To do so, they will have to obtain waivers from the US Treasury Department and permission from the Ayatollahs.
If the report turns out to be true, this is the surest sign yet that the Obama administration has no intention of stopping Iran’s nuclear weapons program, is completely indifferent to Iranian sponsorship of Al Qaeda, Hezbollah and HAMAS and couldn’t care less about Iranian support for militants in Iraq and Afghanistan who targeted American GIs for years.
As a US Senator, Obama co-sponsored the Iran Divestment Enabling Act, a counterproductive piece of legislation that his minions crowed was proof that he would support Israel and not kow-tow to the Ayatollahs.
It is becoming increasingly clear that his involvement in that bill amounted to nothing but cynical window-dressing, as he has bent over backwards to appease and accommodate the genocidal maniacs in Tehran since being elected.
Hat tip to Atlas Shrugs for calling our attention to this development:
