Full Investigation into Obama Admin Launched by Congress After Hezbollah Report


Posted by GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com | on December 22, 2017

Earlier this week a scandalous report, published by Politico, alleged the Obama administration interfered with a DEA investigation into Hezbollah — called “Project Cassandra” — and ultimately sabotaged the whole project so Obama could pass his Iran Nuclear Deal.

Due to this report congressional leaders are launching an investigation into the Obama administration and their intrusion into Project Cassandra. Several congressional officials confirmed in a report to The Washington Free Beacon that an investigation has started into these allegations.

“Lawmakers will be paying particular attention to whether [National Security Council official Ben Rhodes] or other senior officials accused of misleading Congress and the American public about the Iran deal played a role in thwarting the Hezbollah investigation,” the Free Beacon reports.

The report continued that congressional investigators “are already preparing letters to various U.S. government agencies in order to obtain greater information about the alleged interference.”

House Oversight Committee member and chairman of its National Security Subcommittee, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), said top Obama administration officials could be implicated: “I’ve long believed that the Obama administration could not have done any more to bend over backwards to appease the Iranian regime, yet news that the Obama administration killed the investigation into a billion-dollar drug ring that lined the terrorist group Hezbollah’s pockets in order to save its coveted Iran deal may very well take the cake. Hezbollah is a brutal terrorist group with American blood on its hands and it would be unconscionable for American policy to deliberately empower such a nefarious group. Congress will be investigating this thoroughly and my National Security subcommittee will be particularly interested in how such a decision came about and whether it was driven by key Iran deal architects such as Ben Rhodes.”

Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) isn’t surprised by the report and thought an investigation is necessary to determine what happened: “The report alleging the Obama Administration turned a blind eye and allowed Hezbollah to pump drugs into the United States to fund its terror campaigns in the Middle East is not surprising. Hampering the DEA’s investigation of Hezbollah would be emblematic of the previous administration’s fixation to strike a nuclear accord with Iran at any costs. This blind eye imperiled our efforts to combat Iran and its proxies’ malign behavior and left us with a cash-flush Iran on the warpath across the Middle East with a nuclear program legitimized by the [Iran deal]. Congress needs to investigate this report and do what the Obama Administration refused to do, severely increase pressure on Hezbollah and hold the terrorist group, and its benefactor Iran, accountable for their crimes.”

Should this investigation blow open to the public, it will give direct insight into exactly how the Obama administration placed U.S. national security at risk to pass a bad deal.

Dr. Peter Vincent Pry — executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and director of the U.S. Nuclear Strategy Forum and served as the chief of staff on the Congressional EMP Commission, the Congressional Strategic Posture Commission, the House Armed Services Committee, and the CIA — gave a statement to the Daily Wire on how the Iran deal is a direct threat to America:

“Project Cassandra” wittingly or not, in ancient Greek is named for “an unheeded prophet of disaster” — an apt description of the anti-drug program against Hezbollah sabotaged by the Obama Administration to protect their Iran nuclear deal, and an even more apt description of the Iran nuclear deal itself. The extraordinary sacrifices made by the Obama Administration for the Iran nuclear deal endangered U.S. homeland security by facilitating Hezbollah’s criminal and terrorist activities against the American people and against U.S. allies. For the Iran nuclear deal, the Obama Administration sacrificed U.S. national security interests by alienating our closest Middle Eastern allies, including Israel and the moderate Middle Eastern states. The Iran nuclear deal itself is among the greatest threats to U.S. national security, promoting the fiction that Iran’s advance toward nuclear weapons has been halted, albeit temporarily. In fact, we know nothing of the kind. The inspection regime for the Iran nuclear deal leaves uninspected Iranian military bases and suspected clandestine facilities — where Iran almost certainly continues building nuclear weapons. Indeed, there is substantial and compelling evidence Iran achieved nuclear weapons capability years before the Iran nuclear deal. Was the Iran nuclear deal really appeasement, a surrender to Iran’s geostrategic and economic interests, so Iran would not disclose the politically humiliating and terrifying fact that, on Obama’s watch, Iran built their Islamic Bomb?

Obama Aborted Anti-Terror Mission to Get His Iran Nuclear Deal Passed


Posted by GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com | on December 18, 2017

A jaw-dropping exposé by Politico has revealed former President Barack Hussein Obama’s administration allowed Hezbollah to smuggle drugs into the US so that the Iran Nuclear Deal could proceed on its path. 

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.

Via the Daily Mail: In some cases, they were hindered and some requests from the DEA’s Counter facility in Chantilly, Virginia, were flatly rejected. This hampered Project Cassandra’s efforts to bring the Hezbollah hierarchy to their knees. They included one of the world’s biggest cocaine traffickers who also supplied Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with chemical weapons.

Talking anonymously, some former Obama officials told Politico the decisions were made to improve relations with Iran.

David Asher, a founder of Project Cassandra, told Politico: ‘This was a policy decision, it was a systematic decision.

‘They serially ripped apart this entire effort that was very well supported and resourced, and it was done from the top down.’

Asher went on to explain the closer the Iran deal came to its final stages, the DEA’s job became more difficult. Coincidentally the moment the nuclear deal was announced in January 2016, agents working on Project Cassandra were transferred to other assignments.

After more than a decade of tensions with the West, Tehran signed a landmark deal with world powers to curb its nuclear activity in exchange for the gradual lifting of crippling economic sanctions. President Donald Trump has threatened to scrap the accord. The revelations also come just a week after the leader of Hezbollah swore to ‘end’ the US, calling for ‘martyr’ terror attacks in Jerusalem after Trump’s recognition of the city as the Israeli capital.

Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary General of the Lebanese militant group, made the impassioned televised speech to thousands of followers, inciting the crowd to chant ‘Death to America’This was followed by a warning to Lebanon from Israel’s Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz, who said that if Hezbollah attacked Israel, the country would return the whole country ‘back to the Stone Age’.

In his speech this week, translated by the Washington D.C.-based Middle East Media Research Institute, Hezbollah leader Nasrallah appeared to urge followers to carry out terror attacks in Jerusalem.

‘It is time that everybody knows that America is not the sponsor of peace in Palestine and the region,’ he said in the televised speech

‘America is the sponsor of terrorism, of occupation, of Judaization, of deportation, of burning, of destruction and of civil strife.

‘America created ISIS and the takfiri [apostate] groups.’

He continued to state the only position Lebanon can take with the United States is ‘Death to America’, to which the crowd chanted the threats and waved the Palestinian flag. Nasrallah then encouraged the crowd to turn President Trump’s move to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s capital into the ‘beginning of the end’ for the U.S.and Israel ‘for all eternity’.

He also called for ‘millions of martyrs’ to march on Jerusalem, potentially inciting terror attacks.

Israel and Hezbollah fought a war in 2006 and often trade warnings. But in an interview on Wednesday, Intelligence Minister Katz warned that if the organization resumed a military conflict ‘all of Lebanon will be a target.’

‘What happened in 2006 would be a picnic compared to what could happen… 

‘I say Lebanon will return to the stone age.’
