$10 billion more for Iran| Trending Viral hub

After the October 7 attack by Hamas, which is armed and financed by Iran, many Americans wanted to know: Would President Biden continue to release $6 billion to Tehran? The six Democratic senators up for re-election in competitive states joined Republicans in calling on the president to freeze the money.

Under pressure, the White House relented, saying it would block the $6 billion (for now), but evidently not because it has changed its mind about the wisdom of financing Iran. On Tuesday, the State Department reissued a sanctions waiver that gives Iran access to more than $10 billion.
