Politico describes how Obama allowed Hezbollah to persist with trafficking cocaine into the United States to keep his Iran deal unimpeded.
The story is long and deep and detailed. And that Politico would write such a thing is mind-blowing in itself. Right there is another whole story for discussion.
This item was noticed on Legal Insurrection where Willian Jacobson summarizes nicely. He pulls the best bits.
That's all you're having here or else this would go on for ten printed pages. Except to mention, when I bother to turn off my protection from Facebook and reload to read Politico comments, I'm always disappointed by their low quality. They sound like Washington Post commenters, I form of picture of people who live in Washington, or at least in the corridor, intensely interested in politics but too partisan too strictly narrow minded to allow a whole picture. While the commenters at Legal Insurrection are always reliably well-rounded, deeply informed and interesting.
Through it all I have a lingering question for which you probably have an immediate answer, why would a president do something like this?
The story is dreadful in its details. Maybe not so suitable for such tender light-hearted blissfully unconcerned souls such as yourselves. (Joke)
