The taskforce, named Project Cassandra, worked for eight years out of a top-secret facility in Virginia with help from 30 American and foreign security agencies, unraveling the global crime syndicate that was funding Hezbollah’s Jihadi operations, the site reports.
THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION PROTECTED MEMBERS OF NOTORIOUS TERROR GROUP HEZBOLLAH FROM PROSECUTION TO SAVE THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL, A NEW REPORT CLAIMS.
EDITOR’S NOTE: One of the main reasons, if not the only reason, why Obama campaigned so hard for Hillary Clinton was to keep damning evidence like this from ever coming to the light of day. His desire to be the president that “signed the Iran deal” was so great that he was willing to let Hezbollah terrorists go free in order to get it done. There are many more Obama scandals like this one just waiting in the wings. Like the Iran Nuclear deal itself that does nothing to stop Iran from getting the bomb, and does everything to help them achieve it.
A team at the Drug Enforcement Administration had been working for almost a decade to bring down the Lebanon-based militant organization’s sophisticated $1 billion-a-year drug ring — which it found was smuggling cocaine into the US and laundering the profits by buying used cars stateside and shipping them to Africa for resale, Politico reports.
But the departments of Justice and Treasury delayed and rejected prosecution and sanctions requests from the team that had exposed the Iran-backed criminal network because the Obama White House feared “rocking the boat” with Tehran ahead of the deal, the site reports.
“This was a policy decision, it was a systematic decision,” David Asher, who helped found the program for the Defense Department, told Politico. “They serially ripped apart this entire effort that was very well supported and resourced, and it was done from the top down.”
The task force named Project Cassandra, worked for eight years out of a top-secret facility in Virginia with help from 30 American and foreign security agencies, unraveling the global crime syndicate that was funding Hezbollah’s Jihadi operations, the site reports.
Among those the team sought to bring to justice were Abdallah Safieddine, the group’s envoy to Tehran and a shadowy operative nicknamed “Ghost,” who it considered one of the biggest cocaine smugglers in the world.
“HEZBOLLAH OPERATES LIKE THE GAMBINO CRIME FAMILY ON STEROIDS, AND SAFIEDDINE IS ITS JOHN GOTTI,” EX-DEA AGENT JACK KELLY, WHO CREATED THE TASK FORCE, TOLD POLITICO. “WHATEVER IRAN NEEDS, SAFIEDDINE IS IN CHARGE OF GETTING IT FOR THEM.”
