In December, Politico ran an in-depth exposé on how the Obama administration allowed a Hezbollah criminal and terrorist network to proliferate across the globe — all so it would not ruffle the feathers of his Islamic handlers in Tehran.

Part of the report centered around the testimony of the former head of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s special-operations division, Derek Maltz.
In it, Maltz said that a ten-year investigation into Hezbollah criminality, dubbed Operation Cassandra, was all but complete and contained damning evidence that would have resulted in historic arrests, but Obama stopped the probe.
“Certainly there are targets that people feel that could have been indicted and weren’t,” Maltz told the Politico at the time, “There is certainly an argument to be made that if tomorrow all the agencies were ordered to come together and sit in a room and put all the evidence on the table against all these bad guys, that there could be a hell of a lot of indictments.”
Was Maltz positive that Obama’s reasonings were for his precious ‘Iranian deal’ to remain unmolested?
“There’s no doubt in my mind now that the focus was this Iran deal and our initiative was kind of like a fly in the soup. We were the train that went off the tracks.”
In the Washington Free Beacon on January 11, Maltz elaborated on what Obama had done to a once-in-a-lifetime investigation.

“There’s an old saying, opportunities come and go. In my personal opinion, having been the guy in charge of the special operations for ten years, we lost a gold opportunity to crush Hezbollah.”
The main handicap for any major investigations, Maltz states, is the continued inability or unwillingness of numerous intelligence agencies to share information on subjects and cases of interest.
“Sadly, 16 years after 9/11, we’re still talking about information sharing. It’s a disaster,” Maltz exclaimed, “If terrorists are turning to criminal networks for their funding, how can we have a system where the terrorist investigators and the intelligence community and others are not communicating properly with the law enforcement agencies?”
Maltz is right. Have we learned nothing from the horrors of 9/11?
