Ask any real American this simple question. Iran was tried by an American Court which found it to be not only a state sponsor of terrorism, but heard absolute proof that Iran ordered the 1983 attack on the Beirut Marine Barracks that killed 241 United States Marines and Iran was ordered to pay $2.8 billion to the families of the fallen Marines. Suppose we found a lot of Iran’s money in America. Should we send the money back to Iran or use it to compensate the families of fallen United States Marines?
You would be hard pressed to find anyone who thinks that giving Iran almost $2 billion dollars back, when that money could be used to compensate the families of American Marines, is a good idea.
Yet on Wall Street, there is one firm that wants to do just that.
They want to give the money back to Iran instead of sending it to the families of the fallen Marines.
The Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation (DTCC) wants to do just that. DTCC is a financial clearinghouse. In plain English, that means they provide a secure method for buyers and sellers of securities to clear their transactions.
DTCC is now working against the Beirut Marine families and the bills (H.R. 4070 and S.2101). These bills would take $1.6 billion dollars of Iranian assets, frozen in the United States, and would give them to the families of the fallen Marines instead of sending the money back to Iran.
Why would any American support Iran over America? Donald F. Donahue is the CEO of DTCC. I’d love to ask him that question. Does he support Iran over American Marines? Robert Druskin is the Chairman of the Board of DTCC. Does he support Iran over American Marines? I’d love to ask him that as well.
DTCC has been sending lobbyists to Capitol Hill to try and modify the legislation before the House and Senate that would allow Iran to get the money it has in frozen accounts and would deny the families of the fallen Beirut Marines any compensation.
Why any American would lobby for Iran is simply unbelievable. It is disgusting.
Many Americans are outraged that we could give this money back to Iran instead of to the families of the fallen Marines. Jamie Radtke is a Tea Party activist in Virginia and she is running for the United States Senate in the Republican Primary. She says, “I am outraged that anyone would think that sending almost $2 billion back to Iran instead of using that to compensate the families of our Beirut Marines is a good idea. Every United States Senator should stand with the Marine families and make certain S.2101 is passed and sent to the President for his signature. When I am in the United States Senate, I will put the interests of America and our fallen Marines ahead of Iran’s interests.”
This is where real Americans need to stand up and act. Our Senators and Congressmen are hearing from lobbyists but they need to hear from us, the people who put them in office. No Senator or Congressman will want to be painted with the label of being for Iran and against fallen American Marines.
Call your Congressman and Senators. Ask them where they stand on this. Do they support Iran or do they support the families of the fallen American Marines?
What!!!!!! Give our money to the American infadels and let us violate Sharia Law and Sharia Finance!!!!!! Let us add another couple million heads to the "tears of Jihad(270 Million at last count and lets not forget to tally the Arab Spring totals.")
Thanks for the congressional contact website. It is more up to date than the 1 I submitted earlier
Maybe we can get Spike Lee to post the CEO's address on Twitter.
