Venezuelan Vice President ‘One of Hezbollah’s Great Bagmen’

Edwin Mora’s latest from his column in Breitbart, titled “Venezuelan Vice President ‘One of Hezbollah’s Great Bagmen’,” details Hezbollah’s presence in the Western Hemisphere.

Mora’s article alludes to our recent Capitol Hill policy event, “The Crime-Terror Convergence: Countering Hezbollah’s Growing Empire in Latin America,” where several experts spoke on the expanding connections Hezbollah has been able to make due to the “permissive environment” in Venezuela.
