Obama's efforts to assist Iran's terrorist ambitions have become so transparent even Democrats want to pull the plug on his nuclear deal.

California Democrat Brad Sherman is demanding Obama cancel plans to supply Iran with airliner technology they plan to use to ship arms to fighters in Syria.

Iran has already been using cash released by Obama to finance a division of its army that funds and supplies terrorists fighting U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Rep. Brad Sherman (D., Calif.), one of a handful of Democratic leaders to oppose last summer’s nuclear deal with Iran, is petitioning senior Obama administration officials to block Boeing’s $27 billion deal with Iran Air, which was long sanctioned by the U.S. government for aiding Iran’s illicit nuclear program. These sanctions were lifted by the Obama administration as part of the nuclear accord...

...Sherman warns that the U.S. aircraft maker’s planes are likely to be used by Iran to support terrorism operations and its campaign to bolster embattled Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, according to aletter sent Wednesday by Sherman to the Departments of State, Commerce, and Treasury.

“As you know Iran Air’s partner, the IRGC [Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps], remains under sanction itself,” Sherman writes in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by the Free Beacon. “Separately, the IRGC’s expeditionary arm, the Quds Force, was designated … for support of terrorism.”

Iran Air is still involved in carrying out operations on the IRGC’s behalf, according to Sherman, who disclosed that the official Iranian airline has been spotted running arms to Assad in Syria.
