As we reported previously, the Obama administration and a politicized FBI are embroiled in multiple scandals, the latest of which is its collusion in the nuclear deal with Iran.
Politico — a very reliably pro-Democrat publication — broke the story last week concerning how Obama shut down the FBI’s investigation of Hezbollah’s drug trafficking in the US to help grease the skids for his much-coveted deal with Iran which gave away literally billions of dollars both in cash and reduced sanctions.
But to exactly no one’s surprise, not a single mainstream news organization has picked up the story.
Despite that it came from a ‘friendly’ newsroom. It’s just further confirmation of how in the tank the organizations are for Democrats.
Here’s more from Redstate…
Earlier this week, Politico published a stunning and highly documented story detailing how the Obama administration went about shutting down a major, multi-agency investigation of Lebanese Hezbollah’s role in terrorism and drug running on an epic scale. The reason the Obama regime shut the investigation down was because Hezbollah is a proxy of Iran and Obama was trying desperately to get Iran to negotiate on their nuclear weapons program. A sample:
In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation.
The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was collecting $1 billion a year from drug and weapons trafficking, money laundering and other criminal activities.
But as Project Cassandra reached higher into the hierarchy of the conspiracy, Obama administration officials threw an increasingly insurmountable series of roadblocks in its way, according to interviews with dozens of participants who in many cases spoke for the first time about events shrouded in secrecy, and a review of government documents and court records. When Project Cassandra leaders sought approval for some significant investigations, prosecutions, arrests and financial sanctions, officials at the Justice and Treasury departments delayed, hindered or rejected their requests.
The Justice Department declined requests by Project Cassandra and other authorities to file criminal charges against major players such as Hezbollah’s high-profile envoy to Iran, a Lebanese bank that allegedly laundered billions in alleged drug profits, and a central player in a U.S.-based cell of the Iranian paramilitary Quds force. And the State Department rejected requests to lure high-value targets to countries where they could be arrested.
