Former President Barack Obama promised America that he was doing everything in his power to fight terrorism.
But smoking-gun proof has emerged that Obama was secretly protecting one of the deadliest terrorist organizations on the planet – one that has killed Americans and was flooding the United States with illegal drugs.
And the reason why is guaranteed to turn your stomach.
As first reported by political news site Politico, the Obama Administration was so desperate to complete a nuclear deal with Iran that it derailed a federal investigation into the Iranian-backed terror group Hezbollah.
According to Politico, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration launched a campaign called Project Cassandra in 2008, after learning that Hezbollah was illegally trafficking weapons and cocaine.
And plenty of that cocaine was reaching U.S. soil.
The DEA discovered that Hezbollah was running an illegal enterprise that was collecting $1 billion a year, which it was using to support terror and sow unrest in the Middle East.
But law enforcement agents involved with Project Cassandra said that as discussions over a nuclear deal with Iran heated up, the investigations were practically shut down by the Obama Administration.
“This was a policy decision, it was a systematic decision,” David Asher, a Pentagon official who worked on Project Cassandra, told Politico. “They serially ripped apart this entire effort that was very well supported and resourced, and it was done from the top down.”
Obama officials repeatedly rejected requests for investigations, prosecutions, and sanctions, even as evidence of Hezbollah’s crimes piled up.
And it was all because Obama and his cronies were reportedly worried about upsetting Iran.
Hezbollah was flooding America with cocaine at the time, and cocaine remains one of the leading culprits of drug overdose deaths in America.
American citizens were literally dying while Obama and his appointees protected Hezbollah and Iran.
Worse still, Hezbollah has long been considered a prime suspect in the 1983 Beirut barracks bombings that killed more than 300 people, including 241 members of the United States military.
Hezbollah is a puppet of Iran and an enemy of the United States. By protecting Hezbollah, Obama made the world less safe, endangered Americans, and disgraced the memory of Hezbollah’s many victims.
It’s time for Congress and the Department of Justice to find out exactly who interfered with Project Cassandra and to hold the parties responsible.
But Project Cassandra veterans believe they know who ruined their work and let Hezbollah off the hook.
And he was sitting in the Oval Office for eight years.
