Barack Obama’s scandals continue to pile up even though he is out of office.
The latest allegations may be the worst thing he ever did.
And what he did with this terrorist group will leave you speechless.
Hezbollah is one of the worst Islamic terrorist groups in the world.
They are associated with Iran and Syria, and they are a major source of the chaos in the Middle East.
But they are more than a terrorist organization.
They fund their activities through what some believe is a $1 billion dollar a year drug and weapons trade operation.
When Obama took office, the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Project Cassandra had gathered significant evidence that could be used to rollback their sources of funding.
But as the years passed, the Obama administration hamstrung the operation.
“Project Cassandra members say administration officials also blocked or undermined their efforts to go after other top Hezbollah operatives including one nicknamed the ‘Ghost,” allowing them to remain active despite being under sealed U.S. indictment for years. People familiar with his case say the Ghost has been one of the world’s biggest cocaine traffickers, including to the U.S., as well as a major supplier of conventional and chemical weapons for use by Syrian President Bashar Assad against his people.
And when Project Cassandra agents and other investigators sought repeatedly to investigate and prosecute Abdallah Safieddine, Hezbollah’s longtime envoy to Iran, whom they considered the linchpin of Hezbollah’s criminal network, the Justice Department refused, according to four former officials with direct knowledge of the cases.
The administration also rejected repeated efforts by Project Cassandra members to charge Hezbollah’s military wing as an ongoing criminal enterprise under a federal Mafia-style racketeering statute, task force members say. And they allege that administration officials declined to designate Hezbollah a “significant transnational criminal organization” and blocked other strategic initiatives that would have given the task force additional legal tools, money and manpower to fight it.”
Read this very carefully.
To grease Iran deal, Obama admin allowed Putin's personal Hezbollah operative – Ali Fayad – to slip out of Western custody. Fayad was indicted in US for trying to murder American govt employees. He's now back in Lebanon hard at work. @JoshMeyerDC pic.twitter.com/Gx1JOUxsfI

Some members of the Obama administration have gone on the record stating the reason the administration backed off on Hezbollah prosecutions was to secure the Iran nuclear deal.
The administration did not want to make waves with Tehran by rolling up their proxy.
Obama officials crippled a fight to crush a terrorist organization so they could sign a deal that allowed Iran to one day obtain a nuclear weapon.
Politico also reports:
“One Obama-era Treasury official, Katherine Bauer, in little-noticed written testimony presented last February to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, acknowledged that “under the Obama administration … these [Hezbollah-related] investigations were tamped down for fear of rocking the boat with Iran and jeopardizing the nuclear deal.”
As a result, some Hezbollah operatives were not pursued via arrests, indictments, or Treasury designations that would have blocked their access to U.S. financial markets, according to Bauer, a career Treasury official, who served briefly in its Office of Terrorist Financing as a senior policy adviser for Iran before leaving in late 2015. And other “Hezbollah facilitators” arrested in France, Colombia, Lithuania have not been extradited — or indicted — in the U.S., she wrote.”
Is this Obama’s worst betrayal of America?
