You Call Yourself Project Cassandra, and You Wonder Why No-One Acts on Your Analysis?


See the original Politico story and this breaking story about the AG launching a review of the initiative (thanks to Glenn Reynolds (InstaPundit) for the pointer):

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is launching a review of a law enforcement initiative called Project Cassandra after an investigative report was published this week claiming the Obama administration gave a free pass to Hezbollah's drug-trafficking and money-laundering operations to help ensure the Iran nuclear deal would stay on track.

Seriously, I don't know if there's any there there, but I couldn't resist the joke about the project name. (Special news hook: One version of the Cassandra myth would be understood today as being about sexual harassment, but then again many Greek myths would be.)
