Remember Hezbollah? It looks like Obama should NOT have been letting them off the hook in his administration … because they were plotting against us.
It was bad enough that Obama spiked ‘Project Cassandra’ and their efforts to stop terrorist groups from growing more dangerous.
Under Obama’s watch, US authorities took no action against top-level Hezbollah terrorists. And because we ‘stood down’ in spite of their thwarted bombings on US soil, their organization has graduated into Billion-dollar International Cartel status.
While Obama was kissing Iranian butt looking for that elusive Nuclear Deal, Hezbollah had agents doing their dirty work here in America.
A scout for the militant group Hezbollah was looking at locations for attacks in a variety of large American cities, including New York, Boston, and Washington, D.C., and sending target information back to leadership in Lebanon, federal prosecutors said.
Federal Prosecutors unveiled charges in Manhattan on Thursday against 42-year-old Alexei Saab of Morristown, New Jersey, who has been in custody since July. The government alleges that Saab has been a Hezbollah member since 1996 and has extensive firearms and bomb-making training.
Among Saab’s dozens of alleged New York City targets, prosecutors said, were the George Washington Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Herald Square and a few local airports and tunnels.
The accused has been a naturalized US citizen since 2008, but is alleged to have connections to Hezbollah going back years before he first moved here.
“As alleged, Saab began his training with Hizballah operatives overseas and, while living in the U.S., surveilled multiple locations in major cities,” said FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge William F. Sweeney Jr. “Today’s announcement highlights the persistent efforts of a sophisticated international terrorist organization to scout targets at home and abroad, identifying vulnerabilities, and gathering essential details useful for a future attack. In the city that never sleeps, neither do the FBI agents, detectives, and analysts who work on the JTTF to protect it, and because of their work, Saab’s future surveillances will be limited to a cell. We cannot do this work alone. I would like to thank the countless private security professionals who protect many of these sites, remind them to remain vigilant in order to make the enemy’s job more difficult, and I would ask the general public to continue to report suspicious activity to law enforcement like you have so many times in the past.”
The accused is even said to have made hand-drawn depictions of explosive devices showing investigators that he had understanding of how to build a real one.
But Democrats assure us that we do NOT need to be on guard against any further 9/11-style attacks on American soil. They are convinced that we all need to be on guard from some white guy in a ‘wife beater’ shirt… or something.
Between this guy scoping out — and reporting back to Hezbollah — potential future American targets and their thwarted Bomb Attempt in D.C., you would think that the woman who giggled when she mentioned their name would NOT have been invited to sit on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
