The Obama administration “systematically disbanded” law enforcement investigative units across the federal government focused on disrupting Iranian, Syrian, and Venezuelan terrorism financing networks out of concern the work could cause friction with Iranian officials and scuttle the nuclear deal with Iran, according to a former U.S. official who spent decades dismantling terrorist financial networks.
David Asher, who previously served as an adviser to Gen. John Allen at the Defense and State Departments, told the House Foreign Affairs Committee Thursday that top officials across several key law enforcement and intelligence agencies in the Obama administration “systematically disbanded” law enforcement activities targeting the terrorism financing operations of Iran, Hezbollah, and Venezuela in the lead-up to and during the nuclear negotiations with Tehran.
So let me get this straight. You on the left have your panties in a wad because President Trump might possibly (there is no evidence) have colluded with Russia to help win an election. But you couldn’t care less that the previous president clearly put the strategic interests of a hostile terrorist state ahead of the interests of the United States, systematically dismantled our Intelligence Community’s efforts to investigate and disable the terror-financing activities of that hostile terrorist state, and … oh by the way… delivered billions of American taxpayer dollar to that hostile terror state.
