Obama admin's 35-yr lease of Port Canaveral to Middle East company with Russian ties endangers U.S. national security

Port Canaveral in Brevard County, Florida, is one of the busiest cargo and cruise ports in the world, with fuel accounting for 75% of the cargo in 2011. It is also a naval port adjacent to the U.S. strategic ballistic missile nuclear submarine base, as well as close to U.S. Air Force facilities and NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. As such, Port Canaveral is critical to America’s national security.

Americans recently learned of how our national security was compromised by the Obama administration’s and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s approval of the Uranium One deal that gave Russia 20% of our uranium reserves.
In an op/ed for The Washington Times on Nov. 23, 2017, retired U.S. Navy admiral and commander in chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet James A. Lyons alerts us to another security compromise by the Obama administration — the 35-year lease of Port Canaveral with no security review to the Middle East company Gulftainer, which Admiral Lyons calls a “serious security compromise” to both the Port and its adjacent military infrastructure.
Gulftainer is co-owned by the Iraqi Jafar family and the emir of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates. Gulftainer is also connected to the Russian-controlled Rostec firm that owns 100% of Rosoboronexport, the exporter of Russia’s Club-K container cruise missile system. The system looks like a typical commercial shipping container, which means it can be transported around the United States carrying missiles that can be remotely activated by satellite.
According to Jerome Corsi, in a World Net Daily article, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) — which should have reviewed the Port Canaveral lease — was bypassed by President Obama’s Treasury secretary, Jack Lew, who previously was Bill Clinton’s chief of staff.

Obama and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew (right). That loopy-loop squiggle is Lew’s signature.


Adm. Lyons writes:

Mr. Lew’s decision may have been further enabled by Aimen Nabi Mir, his designated staff chairman for CFIUS (2009-14). Mr. Mir is the son of a Pakistani immigrant from Kashmir who has ties to the Pakistani Intelligence Service. Mr. Mir himself served twice as the head of the Islamic Society of North America’s (ISNA) youth wing.
It will be recalled, ISNA not only is a Muslim Brotherhood front group, but was listed by the Department of Justice as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation Hamas terror funding trial. It was during Mr. Mir’s CFIUS tenure that both the Gulftainer deal and the Uranium One deal were allowed to slip through.
Gulftainer is co-owned by Hamid Jafar and his brother Jafar Dhia Jofa, Saddam Hussein’s nuclear weapon mastermind and the emir of Sharjah. By way of character reference, Mr. Jafar was on U.S. Central Command’s hit list and could be engaged at any time as a legitimate military target during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Working for Saddam Hussein and in close collaboration with the Russians, Mr. Jafar’s succeeded in designing the “Beach Ball,” a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit on the Club-K cruise missile.
A model of North Korea’s miniaturized nuclear weapon appears very similar to Mr. Jafar’s Beach Ball and was seen in a 2017 photo with Kim Jong-un.
The fact that the Iraqi Jafar family is in a joint venture with Russia’s Rostec should have raised red flags all over the place, but that was not going to be allowed to happen. You have to ask, what were the FBI and our intelligence agencies doing? Were they complicit in behind-the-scenes negotiations for the lease?
Russia’s Club-K container cruise missile launch system looks like a normal intermodal commercial container. It can be loaded with four Sizzler cruise missiles or four Switchblade cruise missiles. These missiles can carry biological, chemical, electromagnetic pulse, conventional or nuclear warheads.
Since the Club-K container looks like a typical commercial shipping container, it can be shipped around the country by train, semi-trucks and riverine boat. More troubling yet is the fact that it can then be activated remotely by satellite.
As Roger Aronoff stated in a Jan. 5, 2017 article, approval of the 35-year lease to Gulftainer is a clear case of malfeasance and comes at the expense of our national security and American safety. The Center for Security Policy paper by Alan Jones and Mary Fanning shows that Gulftainer’s parent company, the Crescent Group, is also connected to Iraq’s illicit nuclear weapons program under Saddam Hussein.
Additionally, Hamid Jafar is founder and chairman of the Crescent Group, the parent firm of which Port Canaveral’s Gulftainer USA is a subsidiary. His brother, Jafar, Saddam Hussein’s nuclear scientist, is the CFO of Crescent’s URUK Engineering and Contracting subsidiary.
Not surprisingly, there is a Clinton connection to the Crescent Group. Majid Jafar, brother of the head of the Crescent Group and Mr. Jafar’s nephew, co-chairs with Bill Clinton the Business Backs Education Campaign, which was launched in 2014, the same year that the UAE made its first donation to the Clinton Foundation. The campaign is funded by the Varkey GEMs Foundation, which paid Bill Clinton $5.6 million to serve as honorary chairman. He didn’t even have to give a speech.
The bottom line is that we don’t know how many Club-K missile containers have been or might one day be shipped through Port Canaveral. Even one could cause incalculable damage. In view of the seriousness of the threat, however, and the fact that the 35-year lease was never subjected to a security review, it must be immediately suspended and eventually canceled.
The port’s container facilities must be returned to full U.S. control. Further, we must devise a system that is able to identify these missile containers and neutralize them. We must also investigate how Mr. Aimen Nabi Mir was able to obtain a security clearance and whether he is still at the Treasury Department.

The House Armed Services Committee’s Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities will review the 35 year lease of the Port Canaveral Cargo Container Terminal. The Subcommittee’s recommendation is expected by March 2018, at which time the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) will review the lease and make a recommendation to President Trump who, it is hoped, will cancel the lease.

Update (March 1, 2018):

Please see Mary Fanning and Alan Jones’ comprehensive article on this subject, “THE REAL RUSSIA STORY — Port Canaveral ‘Project Pelican’ and Uranium One deals connected through the Jafars,” Family Security Matters, February 27, 2018.

For your information. What was going on here – where are our protectors – Congress and the Senate or at the least VP Joe Biden? Was this part of that blank check that Paul Ryan gave Obama?
Could someone explain all of this selling out our country to the enemy?

Jack Lew ? Aren’t the leading capital letters reversed? Russia isn’t necessarily “our enemy.” Those who insist they are…are. For most of the 19th century Russia was America’s best ally. The 1834 Treaty with Russia starts out…”In the Name of the Most Holy and Indivisible Trinity… https://www.sdpb.org/blogs/images-of-the-past/a-russian-grand-duke-gen-custer-and-buffalo-bill-cody/ Then the (((usual suspects))) came in and insisted Congress scrap the Treaty ((((they))) hated Russia. So the ever spineless Congress did just that. Then (((they))) set up the non-Federal Reserve, instituted the Income tax, set up the IRS as their collecting muscle squad, proceeded to finance the Bolshevik Revolution and sat back to… Read more »

“Recommendation” expected by March 2018? What could happen in 4 short months? This is beyond ridiculous and very dangerous.

Those who were involved in this should, at the very least, go to prison for the rest of their sorry lives! Prosecute them all, as allowed under the Patriot Act. Oh wait, that was meant for just us little people, not the real terrorists running the country. ?

OK, first we have to stop with the knee-jerk anti-Russian crap. That’s what “liberals” do. The Cold War ended a LONG time ago. The “commies” are here and they aren’t Russians. That said, there is no doubt that Obongo and his oily crew sold the US down the river. He enjoyed every minute of it. That’s how you leave the White House wealthy, and he did. The uranium deal is clearly a “national security” issue for obvious reasons. The Cape Canaveral thing is not so obvious. Either way, both are either legal and proper or they aren’t. For that matter,… Read more »

— lophatt — Well said. Someone said somewhere along the way that — “We have meant the enemy, and it is us” — pretty much explains the Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush administrations. Our enemies are within. Russia is the least of our worries.

Just as a “minor” example, this is in the news today:
https://thegatewaypundit.com/2017/11/outrageous-tillerson-state-dept-dumps-700000-hungarian-media-defeat-conservative-leader-orban/
Does this sound like the actions of a government that want to “make America great again”, or someone affiliated with the New World Odor. Smells like “odor” to me.

That’s very true. There’s no shortage of evidence. There’s just a lack of willingness to do anything with it.

We should have Obama HAND DELIVER the first bomb we have to use on NK. I know having to be in that position would make ME pretty nervous. With all the stuff Obama did to ruin our Country,I’d make sure HE was sweating blood.

Our military fought the Nazis and the US powers that be brought Nazis back to the US to work for our military/CIA intelligence. Our military fought our “enemy” Saddam Hussein (Bush’s former business partner) and again, we bring in the same “enemies” to lease our port and possibly import to our soil weapons that can destroy us. Why are we paying billions to maintain a standing military when the Trojan Horse will destroy us?

Just when I thought I”d heard of/experienced the last of Obama’s “pen and phone decrees” (that congress and WE THE PEOPLE never heard of until it”s ugly head arose after Jan, 2017……) Pretty sure these Obama Land Mines are going to keep us busy mopping up for decades to come..

They can always break the lease and kick the company out

My first thought,,, True! It’s like when Obama told us that we “HAD” to pay Iran a bazzillion dollars b//c it was “their” frozen assets from the 70”’s Iranian hostage crisis that we froze……..b//c the “World Court in the Hague”” was going to judge against us for even MORE………If it were a perfect world (& I WERE POTUS)…I’d have told them to pound sand…..and sent them a bill for our Embassy, and billed them per hour for each and every hostage at $50-$100 or more per hour …….plus hardship/overtime,,, extraction fee…..every ounce of jet fuel that brought these hostages home,… Read more »

Here’s an even OLDER similar-type article that I was actually looking for when I saw the above UAE 2006 article. This WND article from 1998 was re then-President Willie Clinton’s 1997 idea to hand over to a Chinese shipping company the abandoned-in-1991 Long Beach (Calif.) Naval Station-converted-into-cargo-terminal. Where did Willie get such an idea? The “Clinton Connection” greasing-of-palms in your article & the “web of connections” sounds similar to this one: “The COSCO deal: Is the game rigged?”: Published: 01/20/1998 by Joseph Farah https://www.wnd.com/1998/01/1041/ –“…remember how this insane plan to hand over a military base to the Chinese was initiated… Read more »

The Chicoms have a port on the left coast all to themselves too, don’t forget about that. They’ll need those facilities after the nukes fly and they invade the US. I imagine the 0bama/moslom holdovers in the US military like mcmaster and the rest will allow an enemy to nuke us and say that the order to retaliate is “illegal, then surrender, fulfilling their end goal of destroying America.
