Former President Obama’s disastrous Iran nuclear deal is the deal that keeps on giving. Giving to terror-sponsoring Iran, that is. Newly released photos obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show Iran is transporting soldiers to Syria on American-made planes in violation of the nuclear agreement.

Washington Free Beacon reports:
New photographs obtained by congressional leaders show Iran shipping militant soldiers to Syria on commercial airline flights, a move that violates the landmark nuclear agreement and has sparked calls from U.S. lawmakers for a formal investigation by the Trump administration, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.
Photographs published by a Washington, D.C., think-tank and provided to Congress show Iran using its flagship commercial carrier, Iran Air, to ferry militants to Syria, where they have joined the fight against U.S. forces in the region.
The newphotographicevidence has roiled congressional leaders, who accuse Iran of violating the nuclear deal, which prohibits it from using commercial air carriers for military purposes. These lawmakers are demanding the Trump administration investigate the matter and consider imposing new sanctions on Iran.
The release of these photographs allegedly showing Iran Air’s illegal activity comes as top U.S. air carrier manufacturer Boeing moves forward with a multi-billion dollar deal to sell Iran Air a new modern fleet. Many in Congress have opposed the deal due to Iran’s longstanding use of commercial aircraft for military purposes, such as transporting weapons and troops to regional hotspots such as Syria and elsewhere. It remains unclear the extent to which the former Obama administration was aware of this activity, which came in part while it was promoting Western airline sales to Tehran.
Iran is laughing at the U.S. over the faulty nuke deal. Recently, the Iranian Parliament chanted “Death to America” after voting to increase ballistic missile production. (Related: FBI: Officials discussed deal to cover up Hillary Clinton’s emails)
The Iranian parliament voted overwhelmingly in favor of boosting the country’s defense budget by more than US $500 million.
It wasn’t that long ago that Barack Obama worked behind the scenes to negotiate with the the Iranian regime, the top sponsor of state-sponsored terrorism in the world. (Related: Iran Threatening U.S. Military Bases In Middle East)
Obama even sent the Khamenei regime a pallet of unmarked bills in the dead of night in exchange for US prisoners.
The US hostages were not released until the payment was delivered.
