The Obama years changed the way America does business with terrorists. At what price in American lives do “thousands of tons” of cocaine come?

Project Cassandra, launched in 2008, was one of the most successful counter-terrorism efforts in U.S. history. The project was aimed at undercutting the funding for Hezbollah, which had refocused efforts on drug trafficking and organized crime to fuel its terrorist empire.

Here is a quick overview of Project Cassandra from Wikipedia:

Project Cassandra is an effort led by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to undercut Hezbollah funding from illicit drug sources.[1] Launched in 2008, the project was said to be investigating the terrorist organization’s funding.[2] According to the DEA, Hezbollah has become increasingly involved with drug trafficking and organized crime as a method of funding its activities.[3][4] The investigation was tracking how large sums of money were being laundered from the Americas, through Africa, and to Lebanon into Hezbollah’s coffers.

In the midst of the now infamous Iran deal The Obama Administration began placing roadblocks to derail Project Cassandra and would eventually bring it to a screeching halt.

In an article calling for the revival of Project Cassandra, The Hill reported in December:

Until this week, few Americans knew of Project Cassandra, a decade-long operation run by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) through its Special Operations Division. Yet it was one of America’s most successful counter-terrorist campaigns, racking up numerous victories in the war against Hezbollah, the Lebanese terror organization, and its global crime and drug trafficking networks.

A bombshell investigation published on Sunday by Politico’s Josh Meyer has now revealed that, for the sake of achieving a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed the DEA’s program to combat Hezbollah’s growing collusion with drug cartels, letting this nascent threat become a global menace.

The Trump administration should move swiftly to revive Project Cassandra and make it the centerpiece of a comprehensive effort to take down Hezbollah.
