Charles Krauthammer reacted to a new Wall Street Journal report that the Justice Department objected to the Obama Administration sending $400 million in non-U.S. currency just hours before Iran released four imprisoned Americans. The DOJ was overruled by the State Department, according to the report.

Krauthammer said “of course the Justice Department objected; it was illegal.”

He said that not only was the payment bad optics and a quid pro quo for the release of the Americans, but it skirted statute against dealing with Iran in U.S. dollars.

“They had to print the money here, ship it over to Switzerland, turn it into Swiss francs and Euros and ship it over to Iran,” he said.

“If a private company had done this, this is called money laundering. The CEO would be in jail right now.”


Most of Washington should be in jail as far as I am concerned.

Tehran hangs teenage boy for being gay

A teenage boy has been hanged in Iran in the country’s first confirmed execution of a juvenile this year, prompting fears for the fate of 160 other young offenders on death row.

Hassan Afshar, 19, was executed at the prison in the city of Arak in Markazi province on July 18, Amnesty International reported.

The secondary school pupil was convicted of raping another boy, which he denied, in a two-month trial where he had no access to a lawyer.

The execution went ahead even though he was only 17 at the time of the alleged crime and judicial officials had…

Afshar was arrested in 2014 along with two other youths, after they were accused of forcing a teenage boy to have sex with them by his father.
However, Afshar maintained that the sexual acts were consensual and that the alleged victim had willingly engaged in same-sex sexual activities on numerous previous occasions, leading LGBT activists to claim the teen was executed simply for being gay.
‘Homosexual conduct’ remains illegal under Iran’s Sharia law and is punishable by fines, public flogging or even execution.
Afshar was informed of his death penalty verdict seven months after he was convicted and was executed behind closed doors without the knowledge of his family.
The execution went ahead even though he was only 17 at the time of the alleged crime, with judicial officials promising to review his case in September.
His death marks the country’s first confirmed execution of a juvenile this year, with 160 other young offenders on death row.
Iran executed at least 75 juvenile offenders between 2005 and 2015 – including 13 last year – according to Amnesty.



So, that will mean no more laundered dollars for Iran? And I am sure Obungle is rainbow-ing the White House right this very minute? No?
