Ex-President Obama’s administration was getting in the way of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) investigation against Hezbollah in order to support the Iran nuclear deal. It is plausible reported that Obama’s administration was pulling back on an important law enforcement investigation, which will cause trouble.
On Tuesday, the chairman of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare Robert Pittenger also blamed their decisions through a statement. His comments are absolutely something to think about.
“These revelations are shocking and infuriating. While American soldiers were bravely fighting ISIS [Islamic State] terrorists, with some paying the ultimate price, the Obama administration reportedly was protecting Hezbollah terrorists who were funding themselves by trafficking illegal drugs. No wonder President Obama couldn’t bring himself to call them “Radical Islamist Terrorists.” – Robert said.
In his support spoke the North Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy, who is also vice chairman of the House Financial Services Committee Task Force to Investigate Terrorism Financing.
“The growing nexus between terrorist organizations and Latin American drug cartels poses a grave threat to our national security, especially considering the porous state of our southern border,” – he added.
Against all accusations, Obama’s administration still claims that Iran’s influence in the Western Hemisphere was decreasing, as they assumed this long before agreeing to a nuclear deal in July 2015.
“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.”
Drug and weapons trafficking, money laundering and criminal activities were Hezbollah operatives’ priority apparently.
