"Where do terrorists get their money? Although we think of Islamic State as the richest terror group in the world, a recent report prepared by the U.S. House Task Force to Investigate Terror Financing yields a shocking result: The largest terror “fund raiser” in the world is close to the U.S. border in Central and South America.
Hezbollah, the Lebanese terrorist group -- essentially an arm of Iran
-- has been linked to drug trafficking organizations in the Americas
Yet fifteen years ago, when the group began smuggling cocaine into
Europe and the Middle East, it was only able to moving small quantities.
Now, Hezbollah is moving hundreds of tons of the drug into these
locations, amassing “hundreds of millions, perhaps billions of dollars”
in currency around the world."
