The story of Project Cassandra is one of the most important investigative reports in recent years. Published in 2017 on Politico, it reveals the eight-year-long, six-continent operation led by the DEA, targeting drug trafficking and money laundering that financed Hezbollah and Iran‘s terrorist and war activities. Incidentally, the US ad- ministration defanged the project as negotiations started with Iran on the nuclear agreement until reaching an agreement in 2015. Was the most extensive law-enforcement narco-terror operation in a decade compromised to pave the way for the sake of the nuclear deal with Iran? With exclusive archives and interviewees the film ta- kes us behind-the-scene of Project Cassandra and questions the price paid when political interests prevail over the rule of law. In a cosmic coincidence, this important and insightful documentary is due to be released, as the same time, world-leaders are grappling with the geo-political reprecussions of a renewed deal with Iran.
