Just for showing up at the P5 nuke talks, Iran gets $.7 Bn per month. Multiply that times 17 (there was a delayed start in late January, 2014) you get, well Iran gets, $11.9 Bn! Add one more month, which is highly likely, and its $12.6 Bn!
Iran has also benefited since January 2014 from increased oil exports. They actually exceed the interim agreement’s limits, but the U.S. and world powers look the other way!. Plus the Russians and Iranians struck an oil-for-goods program with reportedly worth $1.5 Bn monthly- with no actual money being exchanged.
Hopefully, there will be no more six-month extensions! If Iran really intends to comply with a nuclear weapons agreement, they can say word tomorrow. If not, the U.S. and world powers should not be duped by continuing the charade!

The Obama administration on Wednesday paid $490 million in cash assets to Iran and will have released a total of $11.9 billion to the Islamic Republic by the time nuclear talks are scheduled to end in June, according to figures provided by the State Department.
Today’s $490 million release, the third such payment of this amount since Dec. 10, was agreed to by the Obama administration under the parameters of another extension in negotiations over Tehran’s contested nuclear program that was inked in November.
