What is surprising is that companies linked to illegal activities are doing their work freely. The shadowy groups like Brescia Middle East (BME) owned by Tony Abi Saab of SIMAINT in Lebanon. He employed his ghost company Tactical Ltd Afghanistan, K5 Global and Bennet-Fouch, G2Armory, SIMAINT and fake alias identity of Sarah Lee to grab US Government contracts.
Tony Abi Saab bid on contracts so that they could weed out the competition and steal the tender. He did win the contract but never had the intention to deliver. He transfers guns and weapons to Syria and Iraq to terrorists.
Transactions without contractual delivery caught the eye of US Army and CIA. The US Army was looking into the matter on the contract.The CIA was looking at a large amount of missing US dollars. It soon became clear that Tony Abi Saab was a front man and defrauded the Army of 5 million USD. He was also supplying weapons to the rebel groups of Syria and Iran for the greed of money.
The US Army roped in FBI to coordinate a large sting operation to catch the mastermind and it did so successfully with Tony Abi Saab's girlfriend — Dinorah Cobos, a.k.a Sarah Lee. She was flown to the US for trial while Brescia Middle East owned by Tony Abi Saab was implicated for fraud and banned from doing business in the US.
Tony Abi Saab despite being accused holds a valid business license for weapons manufacturing in Lebanon and travels the world to meet his partners. His web of companies has expanded from the Middle East to Europe and Asia. He is currently trying to work through his shell companies to bid for US Government contracts.
