A Republican congressman has urged the House to look into a report that the Obama administration held up a Drug Enforcement Administration task force’s investigation into Hezbollah’s drug-trafficking and money-laundering operations, all to ensure the Iran nuclear deal remained on track.
Representative Robert Pittenger (R-N.C.) made the request to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) after Politico reported Sunday that Obama administration officials roadblocked the task force effort to curtail the Lebanese militant group’s criminal activities. Politico reported that the red tape against Project Cassandra allowed Hezbollah to evolve into a major global security threat.
The task force was in operation for nearly eight years. Once the Iran deal was signed, the task force was dismantled and agents were assigned to new projects.
During his program, “The Truth,” Dennis Michael Lynch said on Monday: “Obama should be in jail for this. It’s like the guy who drives the car while his buddy robs the bank. Obama let Hezbollah execute the crimes — some them here in the US — while he drove towards his Iran deal which is a complete disaster.”
