Our only question is, why wasn’t everyone and anyone associated with Hezbollah blacklisted by the US Treasury long ago???
Retribution against Hezbollah for helping the Syrian government fight rebels intensified, as the United States blacklisted four fund-raising operatives and warned of further steps to choke the group’s financing.
The action against the operatives, who the Treasury Department said were based in West Africa, bans them from any dealings with Americans and freezes any assets they may have under American jurisdiction. While the financial impact on Hezbollah was unclear, the department said the move reflected “the alarming reach of Hezbollah activities and its determination to create a worldwide funding and recruitment network to support its violence and criminal enterprises around the world.”
