If you thought the magnitude of Team Obama’s abject capitulation to Iran on the latter’s nuclear weapons program could not be exceeded, think again.

Caught in the lie that the Iranians had agreed to a conditional and phased relaxation of sanctions as the price for limited restrictions on their pursuit of the bomb, the administration has reportedly agreed to an enormous new concession: If Iran now agrees that some sanctions would remain in place, the U.S. would immediately repatriate as much as $50 billion in Tehran’s frozen assets.

The mullahs can buy a lot of terrorism, subversion, regional hegemony and nuclear weapons for $50 billion. Moreover, some experts believe that this shot in the arm for Iran’s economy would negate the leverage of any remaining economic sanctions.

Congress must dump this deal.
