Another Obama coverup on Iran

To ensure that its sellout to a nuclear Iran would make its way through Congress, the Obama administration withheld until after the Iran vote a letter written by al-Qaeda chieftain Osama Bin Laden pegging Iran as being the terror group's chief financier.
In a 2007 letter, bin Laden criticized an operative for threatening to attack Iran. “We expect you would consult with us for these important matters, for as you are aware, Iran is our main artery for funds, personnel, and communication, as well as the matter of hostages,” he wrote.
Ties between Iran and al Qaeda have been reported for years, with numerous ways by which Iran served as al-Qaeda’s “main artery.”
The letter was part of a collection of 112 letters taken from bin Laden’s compound by U.S. special ops forces after he was killed in 2011. The collection was made public Tuesday by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Long after the Iran deal was approved.

IIRC, Said al-Masri, al Qaida's chief financier, was living in Iran in the 2007/2008 time frame (along with bin Laden's eldest wife and one of his sons.)

At one time, the Qods Force base at Ahvas was suppling EFPs (Explosively-Formed Penetrators) to the Shiite militias fighting the Coalition in Iraq, and ALSO to the Taliban.

I don't recall whether it also supplied them to al Qaida in Iraq, but Iran's surrogate Assad Regime actively supported AQII's rat-lines manager Abu Ghadiya. Bashar Assad's brother-in-law, Assef Shawkat, was Abu Ghadiya's prime facilitator and Bashar knew about it. One must assume that the Qods Force was more-or-less in the loop too.

Clearly, the Iranian theocracy's "Expediency Council" was well-named.
