During the last year of the George W Bush administration, the DEA started what is known as The Cassandra Project. The operation tracked Hezbollah’s criminal activity of running drugs and laundering the money on the sale worldwide, including right here in the United States. The money from the drug operation is used to support terrorism all across the world. As soon as the deal with Iran was signed, Obama transferred all of the Cassandra officials to other jobs and the action against Hezbollah ceased.
An elaborate campaign led by the Drug Enforcement Administration, known as Project Cassandra, reportedly targeted the Lebanese militant group’s criminal activities. But by tossing a string of roadblocks holding back the project, Obama administration officials helped allow the 35-year-old anti-Israel criminal enterprise to evolve into a major global security threat bankrolling terrorist and military operations, the report added.
“This was a policy decision, it was a systematic decision,” David Asher, who helped establish Project Cassandra as a Defense Department illicit finance analyst in 2008, told Politico. “They serially ripped apart this entire effort that was very well supported and resourced, and it was done from the top down.”
When Project Cassandra leaders, who were working out of a DEA’s Counter facility in Chantilly, Virginia, sought an OK for some significant investigations, prosecutions, arrests and financial sanctions, Justice and Treasury Department officials delayed, hindered or rejected their requests, according to Politico.
The Obama caliphate allowed a major cocaine dealer known as “The Ghost” , to sell his drugs and he used some of that money to supply the Syrian government with both conventional weapons and gas that Assad used against his own people.
Obama officials speaking anonymously to Politico said that they didn’t curtail operations that prevented the DEA from stopping the shipments and arresting those responsible. They claimed that the decision was implemented in order to curry favor with Iran and to get a deal signed before Obama left office. David Asher who helped set up the Project Cassandra disagrees.
Asher said the closer the U.S. got to finalizing the Iran nuclear deal, the more difficult it was to conduct Hezbollah investigations. After President Obama announced the deal in January 2016, Project Cassandra officials were transferred to other assignments.
“The closer we got to the [Iran deal], the more these activities went away,” Asher 49, who speaks fluent Japanese and earned his Ph.D. in international relations from Oxford University, told Politico. “So much of the capability, whether it was special operations, whether it was law enforcement, whether it was [Treasury] designations — even the capacity, the personnel assigned to this mission — it was assiduously drained, almost to the last drop, by the end of the Obama administration.”
Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution
So, let me get this straight. Obama allowed hundreds of millions of dollars drugs to permeate the globe so that he could get a lousy one sided deal with Iran which he illegally signed without sending it to the Senate for approval as required by the constitution? Being corrupt is bad enough but being utterly stupid is something else again, because as we ll know, you can’t fix stupid.
