Why is Pres. Hussein Obama evading the truth about Iran's military budget and capabilities?
Flashback 2008: “They don’t pose a serious threat to us in the way the USSR posed a threat to us,” Obama told a cheering audience, explaining why he doesn’t think we need to worry about “tiny” countries like Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and Iran."
Why is Pres. Hussein Obama evading the truth about Iran's military budget and capabilities? (FrontpageMagazine).
Obama claimed that ISIS was only a “jayvee” team even as it was capturing Iraqi cities. Now he wants us to believe that Iran is just another “jayvee” team even as it’s taking over Iraq, Syria and Yemen.
Like the rest of his Iran deal talking points, the one about Iran’s tiny military budget is false, and not only is it false, but his claim about how small Iran’s military budget keeps changing.
A few weeks ago, in a speech at American University, he was claiming that "The defense budget of the United States is more than $600 billion. To repeat, Iran's is about $15 billion."
"Iran’s defense budget is $30 billion. Our defense budget is closer to $600 billion. Iran understands that they cannot fight us," Obama had told the New York Times in April.
Just now, he told the Forward, "As I pointed out repeatedly, Iran’s annual defense budget is about $15 billion."
What is Iran’s military budget? Read Obama’s lips. It’s either $15 billion or $30 billion. Hmmm......Pathological liar. Read the full story here.
