Report: Obama Administration Sabotaged Effort to Stop Hezbollah Drug Smuggling

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.

Hezbollah Still a Terrorist Extension of Iran

I ask again… what did America get out of this deal with Iran?

Supreme leader “Ayatollah Ali Khamenei reiterated Iran’s position on the resistance movements and its allies, and Hezbollah occupies a special place among them,” Nasrallah added.

“The United States remains the ‘Great Satan’, both before and after the nuclear accord” reached last week after tough negotiations between Iran and permanent UN Security Council members Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States, plus Germany.

The party, which the United States classifies as a terrorist organisation, is also fighting alongside President Bashar al-Assad’s forces against rebels in Syria, itself an ally of Iran.

On Friday, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem also said the nuclear deal would not affect Iranian support for the Damascus government.

Iran “has ideological relations with its allies that prevail over political interests”, Nasrallah said.

“We say this loud and clear: we receive material and financial support from the Islamic republic, and we are proud of that fact.”
