Politico: In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation.
The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was collecting $1 billion a year from drug and weapons trafficking, money laundering and other criminal activities.
But as Project Cassandra reached higher into the hierarchy of the conspiracy, Obama administration officials threw an increasingly insurmountable series of roadblocks in its way. more …
Opinion: Eric fast and furious Holder was the perfect partner for the deception. The DOJ declined requests by Project Cassandra and other authorities to file criminal charges against major players such as Hezbollah.
Cocaine trafficking and money laundering to the tune of $1 billion purchased weapons for Hezbollah while National Security Adviser John Brennan refused to list Hezbollah as a terror organization.
In a 2008 paper, Brennan called on U.S. officials to “cease public Iran-bashing,” and recommended that the U.S. “tolerate, and even … encourage, greater assimilation of Hezbollah into Lebanon’s political system, a process that is subject to Iranian influence.”
On January 4, 2009 in his Cairo speech Obama said: “Rather than remain trapped in the past, I have made it clear to Iran’s leaders and people that my country is prepared to move forward. The question, now, is not what Iran is against, but rather what future it wants to build.”
Khamenei clearly answered the former president: Iran is by far the world’s #1 state sponsor of terror and Hezbollah has over 150,000 rockets aimed at Israel.
Obama finalized the Iran nuclear deal on July 14, 2015 handing what is estimated to be over $33 billion in cash and gold that has funded terror attacks all over the world.
