Melissa Hodgman, wife of fired FBI Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok, was the assistant director of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s enforcement division in 2015 when the SEC dropped, “without explanation,” its multi-year, $3.7 million insider trading case against Dhia Jafar, a Dubai trader working for the former chief of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear weapons program, Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar.
Perplexingly, during the same time frame, Obama administration officials awarded a 35-year cargo container terminal lease at Florida’s Port Canaveral to Gulftainer, the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) -based cargo container and seaports management company co-owned by Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar’s Iraqi brother and business partner Hamid Dhia Jafar. Hamid Dhia Jafar had decades earlier hatched an illegal scheme to finance Saddam’s and Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar’s WMD programs, in a plot known as Oil-For-Superweapons. The Iraqi Jafar brothers’ targets: the U.S. and Israel.
Options trader Dhia Jafar is the General Manager of Gulftainer affiliate Uruk Project Management Company where he works for CEO and Co-Founder of Uruk Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, a rogue Iraqi nuclear physicist with the same name as the trader. Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar is widely recognized as “The Father of Iraq’s Nuclear Program” and “The Father of Iraq’s Uranium Enrichment Program.”
Hodgman’s unfaithful husband Peter Strzok, as one of the FBI’s top counterintelligence officials with specialized experience in Russia and in the use of weapons of mass destruction by terrorists inside the United States, should have been acutely aware of and should have blocked Gulftainer from setting up operations in the United States, particularly inside the wire of a critical infrastructure port housing berths used by U.S. Navy submarines, U.S. Military Sealift Command, and the U.S. Coast Guard. The fact that Port Canaveral is adjacent to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and to U.S. Air Force launch pads used to send classified U.S. defense satellites into space is another reason why Strzok and the FBI should have blocked Gulftaiiner.
As a youth, Strzok lived inside Iran, where his father, also named Peter Strzk, worked. After the 1979 Iranian revolution, Strzok’s father expressed admiration and support for the Islamic regime’s Mullahs, citing the “order” that the Mullahs and their theocratic rule brought to the Iranian nation.
The SEC initially filed an airtight amended complaint against Dhia Jafar and won the support of a federal judge who denied defendant Dhia Jafar’s motion to dismiss an SEC lawsuit alleging that he had illegally made millions of dollars by trading Onyx Pharmaceuticals options using insider information.
In September 2015, however, the SEC, “without explanation” snatched defeat from the jaws of victory with their abrupt reversal where the SEC stunningly dropped its $3.7 million multi-year insider trading case against Dhia Jafar.
By 2015, the SEC case had been attracting considerable unwanted attention from financial press outlets around the world for two years, threatening to blow the lid off of a national security nightmare involving Iraqi WMDs, Russia’s Club-K Container Missile System, Port Canaveral, and Russia, that is on track to become the essence of the Obama administration and its breathtaking acts of treason.
Gulftainer’s Extensive Ties To Russian State-Owned Enterprises
During the same general time frame, the Iraqi Jafar family’s company Gulftainer went into at least five deals with Russia’s military industrial complex, a Russian state-owned petroleum company, a Russian bank, and Russian seaports. Gulftainer entered into a 2010 joint venture with Russia’s ROSTEC, the state-owned military technology company that owns ROSOBORONEXPORT, the exporter of Russia’s Trojan Horse Club-K Container Missile System. The Club-K is an advanced weapon disguised as a standard intermodal shipping container that launches Russian Kalibr cruise missiles carrying lethal nuclear, chemical, biological, Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP), or conventional payloads. Yet, the Obama administration, knowing that Gulftainer had partnered with ROSTEC, the Russian state-owned enterprise that exports the Club-K Trojan Horse asymmetrical weapon system, placed Gulftainer inside the wire at Port Canaveral, 1000 feet from the Trident submarine turning basin used by the U.S. Navy and the British Royal Navy.
In 2011 and 2013, Gulftainer entered deals with Russia’s Port of Ust Luga, near St. Petersburg — one of Russia’s ports designated for handling nuclear materials.
President Trump placed sanctions on ROSOBORONEXPORT in 2018.
Gulftainer And The Iraqi Jafars’ History Of Getting Inside The Wire At U.S. Ports Near U.S. Navy Submarine Bases
In 2012, Gulftaiiner attempted to illegally and covertly take over cargo container operations at Florida’s Port of Jacksonville, a stone’s throw from Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, home base of the Atlantic Fleet’s Ohio-class Trident submarines and fast-attack submarines.
Local media in Jacksonville exposed Gulftainer for having offered $250 million under the table to become secret, silent partners at the Port of Jacksonville. Subsequently, the Port of Jacksonville’s CEO rejected Gulftainer. One presumes that Gulftainer’s attempt at an illegal entrée to a critical infrastructure port with significant monies under the table, better known as bribery, would have precluded Gulftainer from doing business in the United States.
Gulftainer and the Jafars then turned their attention toward Port Canaveral.
Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar’s brother and business partner Hamid Dhia Jafar is the co-owner of Gulftainer, a seaports management company to which the Obama administration awarded a 35-year cargo container terminal lease at critical infrastructure Port Canaveral, Florida, within spitting distance of the U.S. Navy’s Trident ballistic missile submarines, the most important leg of America’s nuclear triad, and adjacent to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and Canaveral Air Force Station.
Essentially, the Obama administration placed nuclear terrorists inside the wire where America’s air, sea, and space commands reside. The Obama administration bypassed the required National Security Threat Analysis and CFIUS review of the Gulftainer / Port Canaveral deal that was secretly negotiated under the code-name “Project Pelican” and that had illegally bypassed Florida’s open-bidding Sunshine law.
James Comey’s FBI and Peter Strzok, at the time section chief of the Counterespionage Section within the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division, never weighed in on the secret “Project Pelican” deal.
The Project Pelican negotiations coincided with the SEC’s prosecution of Dhia Jafar’s insider trading case.
The SEC dropped the prosecution of Dhia Jafar and his insider trading case shortly after the Port Canaveral / Gulftainer secret “Project Pelican” deal was consummated after the U.S.Treasury Department announced that the Gulftainer Port Canaveral deal required no CFIUS review on the legally flawed premise that the lease, not being a purchase, does not require a CFIUS review. The 2007 CFIUS law states just the reverse.
The Obama Treasury Department’s argument was fatuous on its face as Port Canaveral housed military and civilian critical infrastructure spanning from Trident missile testing facilities, CIA satellite launches, SpaceX launch pads, and petroleum pipelines that pump jet fuel for 50 miles from Port Canaveral to Orlando International Airport. Gulftainer’s cargo container terminal at Port Canaveral is also within easy striking distance — only twelve miles — of Patrick Air Force Base, where the Boeing E4B “doomsday plane” used as an airborne nuclear war command post is intermittently stationed on standby, engines running, ready to take off in the event of a nuclear conflict with Russia, China, or Iran. Just imagine the armageddon that would ensue from planting nuclear terrorists inside this facility.
A previous U.A.E. deal — the Dubai Ports World takeover of six U.S. ports, led to a firestorm of controversy, congressional hearings, and wall-to-wall media coverage. Even communist Senator Bernie Sanders was opposed to the Dubai Ports World takeover of U.S. ports, citing national security concerns in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks. But that did not slow down the Obama administration — not one iota.
Adding gasoline to that firestorm should have been the knowledge that not only was a Middle Eastern ports company taking over critical infrastructure at a major U.S. military complex at Port Canaveral, but so too that the family being awarded the 35-year no-bid contract, with no CFIUS review and National Security Threat Analysis, was comprised of two Middle Easten brothers who had not only been under investigation by the U.S. Government as supplying and funding Saddam Hussein’s nuclear weapons, but that one of them, Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, had also been placed on the Pentagon’s “Blacklist” explicitly wanted for capture or kill.
The Pentagon placed Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar on U.S. Central Command’s Operation Iraqi Freedom “Blacklist,” a classified list of high-value targets from Saddam’s inner circle whom Coalition military forces were ordered to capture, and if they should encounter military resistance, were authorized to engage and kill.
The Saddam Tapes, captured by Coalition Forces during Operation Iraqi Freedom, showed Saddam and his cabinet – of which Dr. Jafar was a key member, musing about placing a nuclear weapon into Washington D.C.
Yet, the Obama administration forged ahead.
‘Saddam Tapes’ Revealed “Saddam’s Plans To Launch A WMD Sneak Attack By Proxy Against America” — John Loftus
It is not as though this information was secret. The 2006 Intelligence Summit, held in Crystal City, Virginia, was, in fact, all about The Saddam Tapes.
Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar also oversaw procurement and technology transfer for Iraq’s chemical and biological warfare programs, according to CIA documents.
Suspected inside-trader Dhia Jafar and nuclear physicist Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar were both born in Baghdad, Iraq and live in Dubai, where Uruk is headquartered.
Uruk is affiliated with shipping container and ports management company Gulftainer, both subsidiaries of The Crescent Group. Hamid Dhia Jafar’s Crescent Investments, also a Crescent Group subsidiary, is a founding shareholder of private equity firm The Abraaj Group, which collapsed in a colossally public spectacle. Investors Bill and Melinda Gates cried foul and demanded their money back from The Abraaj Group. The Abraaj Group’s Pakistani CEO Arif Naqvi was plucked up at London’s Heathrow Airport. Barack Hussein Obama’s Pakistani Marxist LINK TO HIS BOOK travelling companion and college friend Wahid Hamid, after his unprecedented rise in the corporate sphere, became a Managing Partner of The Abraaj Group.
Both Dhia Jafar’s SEC insider trading case and the Jafars’ Gulftainer “Project Pelican” deal, were heavily covered in the press, including in multiple legal publications. James Comey and Peter Strzok’s FBI could not have helped but notice. It was their direct responsibility to notice. It was their direct responsibility to protect Americans from the threat of WMDs.
It is beyond comprehension or belief that the FBI was not well aware of both the insidious Port Canaveral deal and the insider trading case regarding the Iraqi Dhia Jafar family.
Self-avowed communist FBI Director James Comey and FBI Counterespionage Section Chief Peter Strzok had to know. They knew.
As the FBI used to say, “there are no coincidences.” So, what, exactly, were Comey and Strzok’s FBI and Hodgman’s SEC up to?
