In a monumental decision, an Iranian Court has just ruled the United States government, former President Barack Obama, former President George W. Bush, the CIA, and several military defense contractors must pay over $313 million for playing a major role in the creation of Isis.
The court ruled Obama along with others are directly responsible for ISIS attacks in 2017.
The court came to the decision to hold Obama, Bush and The CIA responsible for ISIS’s deadly actions from evidence presented in Iranian court which revealed the US used the CIA in order to create terrorist groups under the leadership of Bush and Obama.
As of right now it’s unclear how the compensation order will be handled but one thing is clear and that’s the corporate media will bury this story.

Al Jeezera broke the story:
An Iranian court has ruled the United States government and a number of individuals and entities, including former President Barack Obama, must pay compensation for 2017 attacks carried out by the armed group ISIL (ISIS).
The court in the capital issued the verdict on Wednesday based on complaints by families of three people killed and six wounded during the June 2017 attacks in Tehran, according to the official news website of the judiciary.
The building of the Iranian parliament and the mausoleum of the founder of Iran’s current establishment, Ruhollah Khomeini, were targeted during the daylight assault that killed 17 people in total.
The court ruled $9.95m needs to be paid to compensate for financial damages while $104m and $199m are for moral and punitive damages, respectively, with the total nearing $313m.
Those convicted in the case include the US government, Obama, former President George W Bush, Central Command (CENTCOM), and its former commander Tommy Franks, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Treasury Department, weapons manufacturer Lockheed Martin, and American Airlines Group.
As to why the US is being blamed for the attacks, the website cited comments by American officials about the “fundamental” role played by the US in “organising and guiding terrorist groups”, news and information published by US media, and books and speeches by US officials discussing “the CIA’s role in creating terrorist groups”, including ISIL.
