It is clear that in the Obama Administration, everything took a back seat to Obama’s domestic political concerns.
Barack Obama‘s administration has been accused of sabotaging an operation to stop Hezbollah smuggling drugs into the US so that a nuclear deal with Iran could proceed.
In a stunning exposé by Politico, the former US President’s officials are said to have opened the door for trafficking and money laundering operations.
The Drug Enforcement Administration led a complex venture called Project Cassandra to tackle the criminality of the Lebanese militant group.
But it is claimed Obama’s people threw down a number of roadblocks, effectively paving the way for Hezbollah’s illegal activities.
DEA agents claim the Obama 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.
