DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. January 11, 2017, 2:53 PM (IDT)

An Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman confirmed Tuesday’s disclosure by the Wall Street Journal that the Obama administration has paid Tehran more than $10 billion in cash, gold and other assets since 2013. Bahram Ghasemi said in a Farsi-language interview with Iran’s IRNA news agency that “the $10 billion figure just scratches the surface of the total amount given to Iran by the United States over the past several years.” According to unidentified senior American officials, the payments were intended to induce Tehran to negotiate and agree to the nuclear deal.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
