To Curry Favor With Iran, Obama Allowed Hezbollah to Smuggle Cocaine Into USA

You think helping organized crime run guns into Mexico so as to generate bad press for the Second Amendment was bad? Try this: the Obama Regime allowed Hezbollah to finance its terror operations by smuggling cocaine into the USA, so as to help secure a deal that effectively put America’s most dedicated enemy on track to acquire nuclear weapons.

This is not from a conspiracy-minded right-wing site like Infowars; it is from a pillar of the liberal information establishment, 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.

Hezbollah is a cat’s paw for the terrorist regime in Iran, so unsurprisingly, that’s where the investigation led.

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, according to interviews with dozens of participants who in many cases spoke for the first time about events shrouded in secrecy, and a review of government documents and court records.

The same Injustice Department responsible for Fast & Furious hamstrung Project Cassandra at every opportunity. That’s the problem with putting the bad guys — or at the very least their fellow travelers — in charge of the government.

“This was a policy decision, it was a systematic decision,” said David Asher, who helped establish and oversee Project Cassandra as a Defense Department illicit finance analyst.

The consequence:

multi-ton loads of cocaine entering the United States, and hundreds of millions of dollars going to a U.S.-designated terrorist organization with vast reach.

As noted at Legal Insurrection, cocaine is second only to heroin in killing Americans.

Hezbollah — in league with Iran — continues to undermine U.S. interests in Iraq, Syria and throughout wide swaths of Latin America and Africa, including providing weapons and training to anti-American Shiite militias.

Running interference for Hezbollah so as to curry favor with Iran borders on treason. But what did anyone expect? His sneeringly anti-American attitudes were at the heart of Obama’s appeal to progressives.

On a tip from Bodhisattva.

    Courting favor– it’s all progressives know how to do (and why everyone else know they’re dirtbag wusses).

    President Jarrett did not appreciate anyone screwing around with her beloved Iran.

    Why hasn’t Trump hired a bunch of muslims like Obama did? He’s not discriminating in favor of America and Americans, is he?

  • Stagester

    Boarders on treason, no treason but that term has left our lexicon and is no longer a crime apparently.

  • Crawford Montazano

    Milhouse Hussein did whaaaat? Still walking free being President Donald J.Trump’s cancer growth.

  • Eddie_Valiant

    Not treason but clearly fits the Constitutional definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors.” It would get him or any President impeached and removed from office in a nearly perfect world.

    Waiting for the alphabet networks to report this, however will not be holding my breath.

    ” . . . multi-ton loads of cocaine entering the U.S., & hundreds of millions of dollars going to a U.S.-designated terrorist organization with vast reach.”

    So those are the jobs Obama said he was creating. Now it all makes sense.

  • Kevin R.

    “In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran…”

    He didn’t do anything “to secure a nuclear deal with Iran.” Obama simply did everything Iran wanted him to do and then Obama rationalized all of his TREASON as an effort to try and secure a nuclear deal with Iran.

    Everything Obama did was done on bad faith. That guy is the worst scum on the face of the earth.

    Obama broke the cardinal rule: Getting high off of his own supply – sniff, sniff

  • THOUGHTCRIMINAL2084

    He did exactly what he was installed to do.

    Arresting B. H. Obama would be the equivalent of the assignation of the Brothers Gracchus. That is to say the beginning of the end of the republic.
    What might work is releasing the information publicly, although I doubt that it would get much press coverage in the MSM, at least at first.

  • octa bright

    assassination, sorry.

  • Kevin R.

    Gracchus was trying to do something highly illegal and against one of the pillars that kept the republic the republic, the term limit of his office.

    I think the Obama case is more like the Rosenburgs We weren’t in a declared state of war with the soviet union and yet they were tried and convicted of treason. The Rosenburg trial didn’t bring down our republic and somehow lead to Caesarism.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    He wears a ring with an Islamic inscription. He defends Islam. He decries Christianity. He states that the US is not a Christian nation.

    At this point, what difference does it make????

  • Mr. Freemarket

    That’s Imam Jarrett to you, bub.

    —DHU !!!! HE NEEDED A LARGER SUPPLY !!!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4b993f5ffffaed6881564c852d8a72d2e320a7d61660258694fcadb95e59a8b9.jpg

    Last I knew, aiding and abetting an enemy during war is treason. Iran is at war with us, even if we don’t acknowledge that fact. Therefore treason.

  • itsatax

    They let terrorists continue peddling tons of coke in the US because they wanted to make sure Iran gets nuclear weapons.
