More details are coming out about the Uranium One deal that allowed Russia to take control of 20 percent of America’s strategic uranium reserves, and they just keep getting worse.
According to a bombshell report from Big League Politics, Barack Obama and his administration appointed a member of a group with known terrorist ties on the board to oversee the Uranium One deal, but that’s not all. The same man was also instrumental in allowing the UAE’s Gulftainer 35-year cargo container lease at Port Canaveral, a critical military facility, to sail through with ease.
The Obama administration placed Aimen Nabi Mir, former two-time president of the youth wing of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), into the top advisory position to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), a national security post at the Treasury Department.
Aimen Mir was the CFIUS Staff Chairperson from 2009 until 2014. During that time, Aimen Mir played a key role in the CFIUS panel’s decision to approve the sale of Uranium One to Russia’s Rosatom. Mir also played a key role in the Treasury Department’s refusal to investigate the UAE’s Gulftainer 35-year cargo container terminal lease at Port Canaveral, a critical military infrastructurefacility for U.S. naval and space operations. Both decisions severely damaged United States national security.
Aimen Mir helped set the table for Vladimir Putin to seize control of over 20 percent of U.S. uranium and was part of the decision that awarded control of Port Canaveral’s cargo container terminal to Saddam Hussein’s rogue nuclear weapons scientist and designated Iraq War enemy combatant, Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar. Dr. Jafar’s brother and business partner, Gulftainer co-owner Hamid Jafar, was under investigation by the Treasury Department and four congressional committees for his ‘Oil For Superweapons” scheme in concert with Saddam Hussein.
The reporters go on to note that the ISNA is the largest front group for the Muslim Brotherhood in America, and was named by the Department of Justice as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Fuondation HAMAS terror funding trial. As if that’s not trobling enough, Mir is the son of one of the people who founded the ISNA, Dr. Ghulam Nabi Mir, who’s also the President of the World Kashmir Awareness Forum (WKAF).
WKAF’s secretary general is Sayed Ghulam Nabi Fai, a convicted felon who was arrested in 2011 for covertly working for the Pakistani government.
Aimen Mir was the CFIUS Staff Chairperson from 2009 until 2014. During Mir’s five years in the staff chairperson’s seat, CFIUS approved Russia’s 2010 purchase of Uranium One, effectively handing Vladimir Putin control of 20 percent of America’s uranium. Also during Mir’s term, the Treasury Department refused to conduct two legally-required CFIUS investigations of Port Canaveral’s 2014 container terminal lease concession to the UAE’s Gulftainer.
The Gulftainer deal effectively placed Saddam Hussein’s nuclear weapons mastermind, Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, along with his longtime Russian KGB/SVR and Iranian regime associates and a UAE Emir inside the wire of a national-security sensitive U.S. port. Gulftainer misrepresented its true ownership; facts that Mir could and should have uncovered easily.
As Big League Politics noted, Gulftainer and Uranium One both have deep ties to Russian and Iranian interests.
Both Uranium One and Gulftainer have deep ties to Russian intelligence, nuclear weapons, and uranium enrichment. Gulftainer has additional ties to the Iranian regime and to the architects of Obama’s Iran Nuclear Deal.
Worse yet, the pay-to-play scheme with the Gulftainer deal was uncovered by Wikileaks, yet nobody did anything about it.
