Avoid Net Biden to Remove Terrorism Labels from Iran’s Revolutionary Guards

On Wednesday, Axios broke the tragic story that the Biden administration was considering the possibility of removing Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) from the terror blacklist if they publicly promised not to be naughty in the future. It was the latest development in President Biden’s efforts to defend former President Obama’s nuclear deal at all costs (including conscience and dignity) and was completely ignored by the evening’s flagship newscast from the broadcast networks.

Instead of covering this story, ABC’s World news tonight, CBS Evening NewsAnd NBC Nightly News The Federal Reserve touted interest rate hikes. There was also a report on ABC about the weather.

Axios’ Barak Ravid reports that “the Biden administration is considering removing Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps from the blacklist of terrorism in exchange for public pledges from Iran to reduce tensions in the region, three Israeli officials and two US sources told me.”

“The IRGC is not only Iran’s most feared military arm, but also a powerful political and economic player,” Ravid wrote. The title “terrorism” means that even if Biden lifts the nuclear sanctions in return for compliance with the agreement, criminal penalties may be imposed on the person or business associated with the IRGC. “

Added: “But removing the title is a political hot potato for Biden. It will probably create a stir among Republicans and several Democrats in the Senate.”

Although the broadcast networks were ignoring the story because it might be another foreign policy mistake for the Biden administration, according to Fox News Channel. Special report Not like them to the Democratic president.

“The administration is considering removing Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps from the list of foreign terrorist organizations if the IRGC publicly offers to reduce its aggression in the region,” said Rich Edson, a senior national correspondent. He went on to note, ‚ÄúThis weekend [the IRGC] Has fired a dozen missiles into northern Iraq. Some landed near a US consulate building there. “

NED Price (State Department Spokesperson): The challenges that we will face and face from Iran will be the support of proxies, support for terrorist groups, ballistic missile program, all these challenges will become more difficult. Iran will deal if it has nuclear weapons.

“Officials say the IRGC threats are forcing the State Department to provide security for former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former Iranian ambassador to Afghanistan Brian Hooke,” Edson said in part because of the threat to their lives.
