Report: State Dept. says Hezbollah flooding Peru, Bolivia with terrorist assets

(National Sentinel) Threat: Massive caravans of migrants heading north to the United States are a problem for many reasons, but one of those reasons that gets overlooked, downplayed, or outright rejected by the Left and its compliant media is that they can be used as a means of infiltrating really bad people into the country.

Like terrorists.

In written testimony prepared for House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism hearing Wednesday, the State Department’s top counter-terrorism official Nathan Sales warned that Hezbollah is deploying “large caches of military equipment and explosives” in Bolivia, as well as delivering some to jihadists currently deployed in Peru.

That warning came just a day after department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said that Iran, Hezbollah’s benefactor, spends $1 billion annually on exporting terrorism, $700 million of which goes to Hezbollah, which is known to traffic heavily in drugs as well as conduct extensive money-laundering operations throughout Latin America.

Heck, that’s been going on for over a decade in the Tri-border region of South America. Iran has been shipping in military hardware and Hezbollah operatives by the plane loads to Venezuala then trans-shipping them into the interior.

Yep. They’ll hook up with the Cartels.

It’s going to be interesting to see what the new Marxist president of Mexico has up his sleeve. If Mexico goes the way of Venezuela....look out.
