Biden Regime Releases $6 Billion In Ransom AND 5 Iranian Prisoners

Poll: Majority of Americans Oppose Iran Prisoner Swap

Biden freed up $6 billion for Iran

By: Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, September 18, 2023

A majority of Americans oppose the Biden administration’s decision to award Iran with $6 billion in exchange for several prisoners wrongfully detained in the country, according to a poll.

Fifty-five percent of likely voters said last week they do not approve of the prisoner swap, according to a poll commissioned by the Senate Opportunity Fund, a conservative nonprofit.

Just 28 percent of the 800 national voters polled said they support the prisoner deal, with 17 percent saying they have no opinion. Of those who opposed the deal, 33 percent strongly opposed it, while 22 percent said they “somewhat disapprove.”

The findings come as the five Americans released as part of the deal arrive in Qatar on their way back to the United States. The deal has generated fierce pushback among Republicans in Congress and could become an albatross for President Joe Biden as he seeks reelection. Congress was given no oversight over the deal, which many view as a prelude to a new nuclear deal with Tehran that will free up billions more.

The United States granted Iran access to around $6 billion in cash as part of the prisoner swap, money that the hardline regime in Tehran says can be spent in any manner it chooses. When billions were freed up as part of the 2015 nuclear accord, Iran spent much of that money fortifying its nuclear infrastructure, stockpiling missiles, and expanding its Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, a designated terror group.

After the deal was formalized last week, Iran announced that it is kicking out nuclear inspectors affiliated with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the global watchdog in charge of ensuring Iran does not build a nuclear bomb.

“Iran has effectively removed about one third of the core group of the Agency’s most experienced inspectors designated for Iran,” IAEA director Rafeal Grossi said in a statement. “Without effective cooperation, confidence and trust will continue to be elusive and the Agency will not be in a position to discharge effectively its verification mandate in Iran and provide credible assurances that nuclear material and activities in Iran are for peaceful purposes.”
