Investigate Obama stopping Project Cassandra

Ben Rhodes ran the PR for Obama giving Iran $150 billion. Rhodes's brother runs the news at CBS. That network argued that gee, Obama did not give the money to Iran because it was theirs all along as frozen assets -- plus interest. Nobody is talking about Obama's bigger gift to Iran: dropping the investigation of its drugs and for terrorism program.

President Donald John Trump said on Wednesday, "Iran's hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013 and they were given $150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash. Instead of saying, 'Thank you,' to the United States, they chanted, 'Death to America.' In fact, they chanted 'Death to America' the day the agreement was signed. Then Iran went on a terror spree funded by the money from the deal and created hell in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Iraq."

News Busters reported, "Well, that triggered the liberal media who sprinted to the former President’s defense. CBS White House correspondent Weijia Jiang actually suggested it was unfounded for Trump to make the connection. And NBC ran to Obama-era liar Susan Rice for backup.

"Jiang began her CBS Evening News report by snapping at how Trump suggested the American people should be happy with how things had turned out. 'But critics say there is no reason to celebrate, especially because tonight, U.S. intelligence agencies warn more threats may be looming,' she chided.

"Later responding to a soundbite of Trump talking about the need for Iran to change its behavior, Jiang decried: 'He blamed that behavior on the unfounded claim that the Obama-era nuclear agreement enabled Iran to build up its military arsenal.'

"The assertion Trump’s claim was unfounded was laughable if the situation wasn’t so serious."

Our Democrat Influenced Corrupt Organizations running network news are devoted to their party. Rather than support America in its fight against Iranian terrorism, the media awaits the day when the Great Democrat Pumpkin rises from the patch and retakes the White House.

Meanwhile, though, most of the media has ignored a larger scandal called Project Cassandra. Politico was the exception.

Politico reported, "The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was collecting $1 billion a year from drug and weapons trafficking, money laundering and other criminal activities."

The investigation began under President George Walker Bush. Obama stopped it as a favor to his friends, the ayatollahs.

The story said investigators "followed cocaine shipments, some from Latin America to West Africa and on to Europe and the Middle East, and others through Venezuela and Mexico to the United States. They tracked the river of dirty cash as it was laundered by, among other tactics, buying American used cars and shipping them to Africa. And with the help of some key cooperating witnesses, the agents traced the conspiracy, they believed, to the innermost circle of Hezbollah and its state sponsors in Iran.

"But as Project Cassandra reached higher into the hierarchy of the conspiracy, Obama administration officials threw an increasingly insurmountable series of roadblocks in its way, according to interviews with dozens of participants who in many cases spoke for the first time about events shrouded in secrecy, and a review of government documents and court records. When Project Cassandra leaders sought approval for some significant investigations, prosecutions, arrests and financial sanctions, officials at the Justice and Treasury departments delayed, hindered or rejected their requests."

By definition, presidents cannot commit obstruction of justice. The Constitution makes the president the federal government's chief executive officer. As CEO, he gives the agencies their marching orders. There is no such thing as an independent agency.

But the press can shine the spotlight on those decisions. Ignoring the demise of Project Cassandra is more evidence of media protection of the most corrupt presidency ever.
