The Republican LIE that we funded Iran

The fascist right and their cult leader like to pretend that “releasing $6 billion” in frozen Iran funds “made Iran rich” or funded the Hamas terror attack.

Reality: “None of the funds that have now gone to Qatar have actually been spent or accessed in any way by Iran,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken told reporters in Israel on Thursday when asked about the funds. “Indeed, funds from that account are overseen by the Treasury Department, can only be dispensed for humanitarian goods — food, medicine, medical equipment — and never touch Iranian hands.”
