Our Voice of the Week is the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) panel discussion ‘Countering Hezbollah’s Transnational Criminal Enterprise’ with Derek Maltz, former DEA official; Dr. Emanuele Ottolenghi, Senior Fellow at FDD; and Tony Badran, Research Fellow at FDD. Kelly Jane Torrance, Deputy Managing Editor of The Weekly Standard, moderated the conversation.
