- "And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his
name that sat on him was death, and hell followed with him". -- Revelation
- On John Dimitri Negroponte...
- The above biblical quotation is the only way I can describe
John Dimitri Negroponte because of the atrocities he's previously committed
around the world.
- From 1971 to 1973, Negroponte was the officer-in charge
for Vietnam at the National Security Council under Henry Kissinger. During
that period, former DEA Michael Levine was conducting undercover operations
in Saigon, Thailand, and Cambodia where our government was smuggling heroin
into the U.S. Our government was utilizing caskets and body bags of those
"Killed In Action" to smuggled the heroin.
- From 1981-1985, Negroponte was U.S. Ambassador to Honduras,
where he illegally assisted the contra war and, most devastating, helped
the Reagan administration in "disappearing" close to 300 political
opponents in classic death squad fashion. He supervised the creation of
the El Aguacate air base, which the Contras used as a secret detention
and torture center. In August 2001, excavations at the base discovered
185 corpses, including two American missionaries. In May 1982, a nun, Sister
Laetitia Bordes went on a fact-finding delegation to Honduras to investigate
the whereabouts of thirty Salvadoran nuns who fled to Honduras in 1981.
Negroponte claimed the embassy knew nothing. But in 1996, a U.S. newspaper
interviewed Negroponte's predecessor, Jack Binns. Binns said that a group
of Salvadorans, among whom was Bordes, who had been captured on April 22,
1981, and savagely tortured by the Honduran Secret Police, and then later
thrown out of helicopters, alive. Negroponte turned a deliberate blind
eye to a murderous pattern of political killings. He orchestrated the famous
death squad Battalion 316, which used shock and suffocation devices in
interrogations. Prisoners were often kept naked and when no longer useful,
killed and buried in unmarked graves. We have seen similar pictures of
those atrocities committed by our service men and women in Iraq.
- From 1989 to September 1993, he was also ambassador to
Mexico where he directed our U. S. intelligence services in assisting the
war against the Zapatista rebels in Chiapas. Furthermore, he was there
obstructing the war on [some] drugs. Seven Mexican drug agents were gunned
down in an ambush by 100 members of the Mexican army on the payroll of
a drug cartel; Negroponte dismissed the slaughter as "a regrettable
incident." The slaughter had been videotaped by the DEA from another
plane, which had also been strafed by the army unit.
- Ironically enough, I was stationed in Vietnam as a combat
soldier at the same time Negroponte was assigned to Vietnam. It was there
I saw some of my brothers laid low from heroin overdose. It was also there,
that I promised myself that if I survived that war, I would initiate my
own personal war against drug trafficking. In 1979, I became one of the
very few Latinos DEA agents.
- From 1985 to 1991, I was assigned to Honduras, Guatemala,
Belize and El Salvador. As one of two DEA agents that covered those countries,
I observed that our U.S. government was complicit in drug trafficking and
human rights violations. The area was rife with rebellion, gunrunning,
and a perception that communism was on the move towards our back yards.
One of my job descriptions was to train members of their military intelligence
on the interdiction of drugs. However, most of my time was spent assisting
the CIA in training the death squads. We were utilizing CIA contract agents
from different parts of South America, specifically Venezuela and Argentina.
In reality, Central America became one huge country, which allowed the
death squads to overflow into each other. Mario Sandoval-Alarcon, best
known as the godfather of the death squads and creator of the notorious
death squad, "La Mano Blanca" ran all death squads. Sandoval
was so loved by Ronald Reagan that he got a private invitation to, and
attended, Reagan's inauguration.
- At the same time, we had a guerilla movement known as
the Contras operating against the Sandinistas' Nicaraguan government. Honduras
and El Salvador became bases for the U.S. support of the right wing Contras.
They unleashed a sadistic "scorched earth" campaign, basing itself
on the murderous theory that the only way to combat the leftist guerrillas'
resistance was to "empty the sea" in which the guerillas swam.
Thus these death squads set about committing genocide against the indigenous
population. The same blue prints that were used in Vietnam were implemented
in Central America and once again, "worked." There are hundreds
of secret cemeteries all over Central America, enough to us keep digging
for another 10 years. There is no doubt that these same blueprints will
be used in Iraq.
- In Honduras, I saw first hand how Negroponte and General
Alvarez committed some of the worst human rights violations ever committed
against humanity in the Western Hemisphere. In 1994, the Honduran Human
Rights Commission charged Negroponte personally with several human rights
- President G.W. Bush appointed Negroponte as ambassador
to Iraq with the "Salvador Option" in hand. The Salvador Option
is a blueprint of the Phoenix Program [a murderous assasination program
that killed at least 40,000 people without trial] that was utilized in
Vietnam. And know it is being implemented in Iraq.
- Today, President Bush has named Negroponte, as headhunter,
Director of National Intelligence. He is now in charge of all intelligence,
including that of the Pentagon.
- God help us in saving our world.
- As I've stated in the past, this country will get worse
before it gets better, if it gets better. I am now capable of feeling deeply
in my blood when an injustice has been committed. I've risked my life to
demonstrate what I believe to be real- that is that an armed struggle (with
pen in hand) is in order for those who are struggling in keeping their
freedoms here at home. I've now become a veteran of my third, and perhaps
most dangerous war, the war against the criminals in my own government.
