IT'S A TRADE DEAL:

U.S. Helping Iran Access Billions in Frozen Funds (Adam Kredo, April 5, 2016, Free Beacon)

The disclosure of this effort comes amid reports that the Obama administration is pursuing a plan that would grant Iran unprecedented access to the U.S. dollar and American financial markets, a move the administration had vowed would not take place under the comprehensive nuclear agreement.
