Department of Defense linguist, Mariam Taha Thompson, has been arrested and charged with espionage. She was charged in the District of Columbia for handing over top secret and classified information to Hezbollah. According to the US State Department, Hezbollah is one of the worst terrorist organizations in the world. Along with information, the names of individuals were also given to the terrorist group, putting the lives of many Americans in severe danger.
According to the announcement and the affidavit, the sensitive information was gathered from the national defense, which included the names of those working with the United States Military personnel overseas. Their lives are now in grave danger.
All those involved who made the announcement of Thompson’s arrest were, John C. Demers, the Assistant Attorney General for National Security; Timothy J. Shea, the United States Attorney for the District of Columbia; Robert Wells, Acting Assistant Director of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division; and Timothy R. Slater, the Assistant Director in Charge of the Washington Field Office.
Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers put out this statement, “While in a war zone, the defendant allegedly gave sensitive national defense information, including the names of individuals helping the United States, to a Lebanese national located overseas. If true, this conduct is a disgrace, especially for someone serving as a contractor with the United States military. This betrayal of country and colleagues will be punished.”
This “war zone” has been an ongoing drug trafficking from Latin America into the US. Hezbollah was the culprit in charge of the drug reign.
A few years ago, Operation Cassandra was a US task force team that went after Hezbollah to put an end to drug trafficking through Latin America. Obama terminated this operation and allowed Hezbollah to continue their illegal activities.
The Iranian backed terrorist group funneled a substantial amount of cocaine into America through used cars to expand their business. It was reported Hezbollah was racking in over $1 billion through trafficking weapons, drugs, money laundering, and other law-breaking offenses. Leave it to Obama, right?
President Trump resurrected the fight against Hezbollah, and the Trump administration is using this bust on Thompson to go forth and finish what Obama could not get done, or possibly allowed. Obama knew what was happening, and his ties with Iran made it easy for him to suspend Operation Cassandra.
The problem we face now is agents who went undercover from the DEA, those in the United States military, and other forms of government agents who took part in this operation, and the ones currently ongoing through the Trump administration are at risk. All of these groups went after Hezbollah’s underground networks to end Hezbollah’s reign.
The whole organization surveillance all shipments from West Africa to Latin America, and on to the Middle Eastern countries and all of Europe. The dirty money was transported by purchasing used cars from America and transported across the world inside the vehicles.
Under the Obama administration, as the sources went deeper, documents were destroyed, cases revealed which were supposed to remain secret, court records were lost in the system, and everything fell through the system. Sounds fishy.
This is the story of how Obama allowed everything to slip through the cracks. The ties he has with Iran would lead many to believe he is very well knowledgeable about Hezbollah’s trafficking and money laundering scheme.
With the case of Thompson coming up, this leaves the perfect opportunity for the Trump administration to take over. Yes, lives are at risk, but to find out the answers quickly would be the best way to get those whose names released out of harm’s way and start a fresh new investigation into the Obama administration. Finding out why all this happened and slipped through the cracks would answer so many questions.
There are people in Washington who still remain loyal to Obama and openly attack President Trump daily. We all wondered why Obama favored Iran over America so much. Why are Ilhan Omar and the other three women she associates with backing Iran more than America? Obama supported them to get to their seats in Congress.
Many people in Washington will be exposed when more cases like these pop-up. There is too much evidence to ignore, and the Trump administration will find the answers and bring all parties to justice. The Trump administration is going after Hezbollah, but the trails may have them going after Obama next.
