The secret backstory of how Obama let Hezbollah off the hook
Politico ^ | recent? | Josh Meyer

Posted on 12/17/2017 7:20:30 PM PST by T Ruth

An ambitious U.S. task force targeting Hezbollah's billion-dollar criminal enterprise ran headlong into the White House's desire for a nuclear deal with Iran.

How Hezbollah turned to trafficking cocaine and laundering money through used cars to finance its expansion.

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.

When the historians of posterity write their books about the last decade, they will come to realize that the election of Barack Obama in 2008 is perhaps the greatest irony in American history. For in that year this country finally, FINALLY got its first Black president precisely because a huge segment of the electorate simply ignored Martin Luther King’s advice, to judge people by the content of their character. In both 2008 and 2012 the people who looked closely at the content of Obama’s character, at the man underneath the skin, those were the people who voted for John McCain and Mitt Romney, or at the very least stayed home and did not vote.

I wondered. He was a coke head back in HS. he wasa freaking dealer. One of the first things he does is pay back the Sinaloa cartel( F&F) Chicago cronies and one of the last things was exonerating dealers in prison. There’s a powdery line through his whole eight years and that has to include those WH parties with the rappers.

How many millions did the Iranians set aside for Muslim Bro’ Obama for his act of treason against the United States of America?

0bama is, at best, a mulatto. We need to be nuanced in our discussion of skin color race.

The America-hating Hussein Obama would do anything to advance the interests of Iran.

What a sick joke that the U.S. electorate saw fit to put that wretched slug in the White house. Twice.

"I suspect many freepers vote bammy..."

What? Any evidence of that?

I think most freepers held their nose and voted for the awful McCain, and the later the useless Romney.

I saw no evidence of Obama support at FR.

Some sat home or voted third party. Same effect. But we wouldn’t have a Trump if we never had Obama

From the excerpt: "How Hezbollah turned to trafficking cocaine and laundering money through used cars to finance its expansion."

"Used cars"?? That rang a bell...

"Imran Awan declared bankruptcy in 2010, claiming losses of $1 million on a car business that he owned in Falls Church, Va."

Coincidence?

The Awan scandal sure has quietly disappeared. Is he Hezbollah?

OTOH, the Trump administration is bombing drug labs in Afghanistan.

We get a twofer, it takes away money from the Taliban and there are fewer drugs.

the awan scandal is surely associated with the HRC investigation and this looks like they allowed Imran a little leeway in earning some ‘walking around money’...

Do not forget the Awan supplied 'blackberries'... Obama fought like the devil to keep his back in 2009... Hillry hired people to destroy some of her blackberries... and from what I have read, some House dims were supplied blackberries as well... turns out Republicans have been a disaster in controlling Congress.... Hastard, Boehner, and now lying Ryan, have been 'deaf', 'dumb' and 'blind'... when it comes to dims 'transforming' this nation.. willing participants.
