Biden’s Failure to Enforce Iranian Oil Sanctions Funds Terrorism

October 10, 2023

As the world watches the devastating attacks in Israel, we must recognize that the Biden administration’s failure to enforce Iranian oil sanctions has helped fund this terrorism. Iran’s oil exports have grown significantly higher under Biden. Unsurprisingly, Iran quickly expressed support for the murders of innocent Israelis and reportedly helped plan the assault. 

The Wall Street Journal reports,  

“Iranian security officials helped plan Hamas’s Saturday surprise attack on Israel and gave the green light for the assault at a meeting in Beirut last Monday, according to senior members of Hamas and Hezbollah, another Iran-backed militant group.”

Power the Future Founder Daniel Turner is calling on the Biden Administration to stop ignoring sanctions on Iranian oil,

“There is no doubt Joe Biden looking other the way at Iranian oil exports helps finance these terrorist attacks. The trail of Biden’s failure is simple: his fight against American energy drove up prices and instead of utilizing domestic production, his administration prioritized world oil supply favoring OPEC and turning a blind eye to Iranian production. Last year was a record year for Iran’s oil industry, but not American energy. For years we sounded the warning that Biden’s energy policies would have terrible consequences and we continue to learn the awful cost of his failure.”

As Israel goes to war against Iran’s proxies, the Biden administration can support our close ally by reversing its failed energy policies: start enforcing sanctions on Iranian oil and unleashing the power of American energy.
