$10 million Reward for Ezedin Abdel Aziz Khalil a.k.a. Yasin al-Suri Al-Qaeda and Taliban Money Man Who Links to Used Car Scam.

The U.S. Department of State has authorized a reward of up to $10 million for information leading to the location of Ezedin Abdel Aziz Khalil, better known as Yasin al-Suri. Al-Suri is a senior al-Qaeda facilitator and financier based in Iran. The bounty aims to disrupt a financial network that, they said, had operated from within Iran's borders since 2005 about the same time that the used car scam laundering money for Hezbollah/Iran was discovered.

Operating under an agreement between al-Qaida and the Iranian Government, al-Suri moves money and al-Qaeda recruits from the Middle East through Iran and on to Pakistan (Al-Qaeda and Taliban), Iraq (Al-Qaeda) and Afghanistan (Taliban).

Iranian authorities maintain a relationship with al-Suri and have permitted him to operate within Iran’s borders since 2005. Al-Suri is an important fundraiser for al-Qaeda and has collected money from donors and fundraisers throughout the Persian Gulf region. He has funneled significant amounts of money via Iran to al-Qaeda’s leadership in Afghanistan and Iraq.Working with the Iranian government, al-Suri also arranges the release of al-Qaeda personnel from Iranian prisons.

When al-Qaeda operatives are released, the Iranian government transfers them to the custody of al-Suri, who then coordinates their travel to Pakistan. On July 28, 2011, the U.S. Treasury Department designated al-Suri under Executive Order 13224 as an individual with whom U.S. persons are prohibited from engaging in commercial or financial transactions. Al-Suri was born in 1982 in al-Qamishli, Syria. He has black hair and brown eyes. He has used other aliases, including Yaseen al-Suri, Izz al-Din Abd al-Farid Khalil, and Zayn al-Abadin.

Syrian Ezedin Abdel Aziz Khalil a.k.a. Yasin al-Suri links to Ayman Joumaa who ran the used car scam in the USA that laundered Millions for Hezbollah/Iran. Ayman Joumaa is a Lebanese narcotics trafficker linked to Hizballah.

According to the DEA indictment, for at least eight years Ayman Joumaa has conspired with others to coordinate shipments of tens of thousands of kilograms of cocaine from Colombia through Central America for sale to Los Zetas drug cartel. The ultimate destination of the cocaine was the United States.

This same used car, Hizballah/Iran-controlled money laundering infrastructure is used to conceal and funnel hundreds of millions of dollars in narcotics proceeds from West Africa back to Lebanon. For example, Ayman Joumaa’s drug trafficking organization, which operates in Lebanon, West Africa, Panama and Colombia, launders as much as $200 million in proceeds per month, through various channels, including bulk cash smuggling operations and Lebanese exchange houses.

LA TIMES Report: Hezbollah, Iranian Agents Linked To Cross-Border Drug Trade In Mexico.  “You have a very sophisticated global operation doing money laundering and hundreds of millions of dollars of it and drug trafficking, and different groups are benefiting from it.”  Drug kingpin Ayman Joumaa, 47, a Lebanese businessman who speaks fluent Spanish, has used the Lebanese Canadian Bank (LCB) in addition to several U.S.-based businesses, used car dealers, to launder as much as $200 million every month.  With the help of the Zetas, Joumaa allegedly helped smuggle 85 tons of Columbian cocaine through Mexico, where it was ultimately funneled into America, according to the indictment.

Ayman Joumaa’s organization uses Hizballah couriers to transport and launder narcotics proceeds, and pays fees to Hizballah operatives to facilitate the laundering of narcotics proceeds. Another drug trafficking organization, which is led by Maroun Saade, is also involved in the transportation and distribution of large quantities of narcotics in West Africa (Taliban provides heroin).

Maroun Saade is a member of the Free Patriotic Movement, a Lebanese Christian organization closely allied with Hizballah, and has provided extensive services to Hizballah members engaged in narcotics trafficking and bulk cash smuggling in West Africa.

On February 14, 2011, Maroun Saade was charged in the Southern District of New York with participating in an international drug conspiracy in West Africa and conspiring to aid the Taliban in Afghanistan. Maroun Saade is a close associate of Oussama Salhab, who relied on Saade to pay bribes to release money couriers arrested for smuggling cash through West Africa.

In 2007 and 2008, approximately $1.2 billion in declared U.S. currency was transported across the Togo/Ghana border on its way from Benin to the airport in Accra Ghana, where the cash could be further shipped.

Government says Oded Orbach tried to sell missiles, grenade launchers to terrorists of the Taliban according to a criminal complaint unsealed against Orbach and five foreign nationals. The five foreign nationals are accused of trying to move "tons" of heroin and cocaine for the Taliban through West Africa to destinations in the U.S. and Europe said DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart.

Federal investigators of the DEA busted a West African-based ring of narco-terrorists who tried to sell tons of heroin (Taliban) and cocaine in a plot to bankroll the Taliban, authorities said. Two of the seven men arrested are US citizens who allegedly offered to sell the Taliban anti-tank missiles, grenade launchers and other weapons -- and even provided a price list for the arsenal. The two naturalized U.S. citizens are Oded Orbach, 52, and Alwar Pouryan, 36. Evidence detailing the massive plot was captured on tapes of meetings with the ring members in Ghana, Benin, Romania and Ukraine, prosecutors said in documents unsealed in Manhattan federal court.

Oded Orbach, 52, and Alwar Pouryan, 36, one was an Israeli-born shampoo distributor from Highland Park IL. The other was a man of Iranian descent whose Arizona pizza place was shut down by health inspectors. The U.S. Department of Justice announced charges against Oded Orbach, 52, of Highland Park IL, and Alwar Pouryan, 36, of Phoenix AZ, on Feb. 14, 2011.

Opium gold unites US friends and foes..KARACHI - Drug smugglers call it the golden route: from Afghanistan into Pakistan and then into eastern Iran, it's the trail that takes Afghanistan's abundant opium, and its derivative, heroin, to Western markets.

The general route for smuggling Afghan-produced opiates from Pakistan goes overland from Pakistan's Balochistan province across the border into Iran, then passes through the northwestern region, which is inhabited by Kurds (Yasin al-Suri is Kurdish), and finally into laboratories in Turkey, where the opium is processed. The shipments from Pakistan may be broken down into smaller shipments once in Iran. Iran is both a transit country and a destination for opium products.
Maroun Saade, Walid Nasr, Francis Sourou Ahissou, Cornielle Dato, and Martin Raouf Bouraima, Alwar Pouryan, and Oded Orbach were charged in a narco-terrorism conspiracy that involved moving significant quantities of Taliban-owned heroin through West Africa to be subsequently sold for profit to customers in the United States, Canada, and Europe. In addition, Oded Orbach and Alwar Pouryan, who are Americans citizens, were also charged with attempting to sell surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) and other lethal weapons to the Taliban. The weapons were to be used to defend Taliban-run heroin laboratories against a U.S. attack in Afghanistan.


DEA Complaint....Used Car Dealers in the USA launder millions for Hezbollah, Hezbollah is a Iran-backed Shiite Muslim group. Where is Iran backed Yasin al-Suri getting the millions he needs to help finance it the "cars are the cash scam"?

The U.S. government said in the lawsuit filed in a Manhattan federal court that it seeks nearly a half-billion dollars in money-laundering penalties from some Lebanese financial entities, 30 U.S. car buyers and a U.S. shipping company.

Prosecutors said the $300 million was wired from Lebanon to the United States and used to buy used cars and ship them to West Africa. They said Hezbollah money-laundering channels were used to ship proceeds from the car sales and narcotics trafficking back to Lebanon.

The U.S. accusations came after an indictment in federal court in Virginia accused fugitive Ayman Joumaa of leading a drug conspiracy that provided income for Hezbollah, which has been designated by the U.S. State Department as a terrorist organization since 1997.

A Washington-based Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman, Lawrence R. Payne, told The Associated Press in February that Joumaa's organization laundered money using 50 used car lots in the United States. Cars were exported to Lebanon and West Africa.
