Over the weekend a damning report was published by Politico accusing former President Barack Hussein Obama and his administration of allowing Hezbollah to smuggle drugs and launder money into the US, in order to get his Iran nuclear deal passed.
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) was actively pursuing the criminal dealings of the Lebanese terror network in an investigation called Project Cassandra, starting back in 2008. In the report, Obama’s people allegedly set a number of roadblocks, stopping the DEA from doing their job and opening the door to trafficking and money laundering operations by Hezbollah.
One could say Obama and his administration paved the way for the terror-network’s cocaine smuggling operation into the US.
DEA agents have come out stating the administration ‘stopped them arresting key figures linked to Hezbollah as an agreement on the Iran nuclear deal approached – and scrapped Project Cassandra entirely once the terms were agreed in 2015,’ reports the Daily Mail.
When the administration wedged themselves between the DEA and Hezbollah, it allowed the terror network to grow into a global security threat.
According to Politico, the undercover investigation’s leaders sought permission for a number of significant prosecutions, arrests and financial sanctions, but Justice and Treasury Department officials delayed.
Now, several Israeli leaders — Israel being a country directly targeted by Hezbollah terror attacks — are demanding Obama give up his Nobel Peace Prize. According to the JPost, here is what the politicians are saying:
“Obama must return his Nobel Peace Prize. Israel warned repeatedly that there can be no connection between the nuclear deal and anti-terror activity, certainly against Hezbollah…We also warned of this specifically, because of the proven link between Hezbollah and Iran,” Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid said.
“Up until the Obama Administration, every American President fought terrorism uncompromisingly…I am convinced that the Trump Administration will not turn from that tradition and the outrageous and mistaken policy that was revealed this week will not be repeated,” Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hanegbi stated.
Former Israeli ambassador to the US Michael Oren declared, “It was clear that the government was willing to do anything to reach an agreement, including ignoring Iranian terror that took the lives of hundreds of Americans and Israelis and hundreds of thousands of Syrians. This exposée and others that may be published in the future must strengthen our resolve…[to] change this dangerous agreement.”
Communications Minister Ayoob Kara bluntly stated,“Does anyone still doubt why Obama was bad for Israel and how Trump is better for us?”
So what do you say?
