Hugo Chavez was Assassinated by CIA/MOSSAD/Rothschilds


Cancer Assassination by the CIA and the Asteroids - By John Robles

The death of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez was a tragedy which has affected and touched millions worldwide, as a leader in an anti-US imperialism movement throughout Latin America and arguably the world, he became an enemy of the United States and due to the fact that he was almost unstoppable, it is said he was the target of a secret assassination plot by the CIA.

Before his death during many public speeches Hugo Chavez called cases of cancer among presidents throughout Latin America an “epidemic” and a strange and alarming phenomenon. Not only was cancer spreading with non-coincidental regularity at approximately the same time to leaders in Latin America but it was attacking Latin America’s leading left leaning anti-US Imperialists, including Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff, Paraguay’s Fernando Lugo, the former President of Brazil Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva and Argentinean President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. We might also add the mysterious illness of Fidel Castro to the list. Was this possibly a coincidence?

Is it possible in 2013 to deliver and infect cancer in an individual? The CIA has been experimenting with just such an assassination tool since at least the early 1960s, so the answer to that question is an almost definite yes.

 On the same night that we were informed about the death of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez we were also informed by Venezuelan Vice President Nicolas Maduro that the was expelling two American military attaches from the country. He stated that he was sure that the cancer of the late President Hugo Chavez was caused and delivered by “enemies”. A commission has been set up to investigate and we await its findings.

The claim may seem extreme but if we look at the history of the CIA and secret US programs to deliver and cause cancer in Latin American leaders and even attempts by Lee Harvey Oswald to assassinate Fidel Castro using cancer causing biological agents, the claim not only seems reasonable but also likely.

Before his death during many public speeches Hugo Chavez called cases of cancer among presidents throughout Latin America an “epidemic” and a strange and alarming phenomenon.

Not only was cancer spreading with non-coincidental regularity at approximately the same time to leaders in Latin America but it was attacking Latin America’s leading left leaning anti-US Imperialists, including Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff, Paraguay’s Fernando Lugo, the former President of Brazil Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva and Argentinean President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. We might also add the mysterious illness of Fidel Castro to the list. Was this possibly a coincidence? Mathematically speaking this is not possible.

In an address to the nation on Venezuelan national radio the late Hugo Chavez stated: "I don't know but... it is very odd that we have seen Lugo affected by cancer, Dilma when she was a candidate, me, going into an election year, not long ago Lula and now Cristina... It is very hard to explain, even with the law of probabilities, what has been happening to some leaders in Latin America. It's at the very least strange, very strange."

It is obvious to anyone in the world that all of these anti-US imperialist leaders were a problem for one country, the USA and we also know they will do anything to advance their policies, yet when dealing with super secret assassins delivering toxins and untraceable viruses which cause cancer, even though it may have been obvious who the beneficiary would be, Hugo Chavez never openly accused the United States, he knew he had to have proof.

If this were a court of law the circumstantial evidence would be enough to convict the US but unfortunately that is not the case.

When I started researching for this article and the subject of the spread and delivery of cancer causing pathogens and viruses several old and well known names and CIA projects began popping up including MKULTRA, Project PAPERCLIP, Program F, CIA agent David Ferrie, Dr. Cornelius Rhoads, MKNAOMI, MKCHIKWIT, MKDELTA, MKOFTEN, Dr. Charles F. Geschickter, Ethnic Weapons that attack DNA, the Kennedy Assassination, Dr. Alton Ochsner Sr. and Dr. Mary Stults Sherman and her research into delivering cancer to Fidel Castro in a secret operation involving Lee Harvey Oswald.

Although the MK designation refers to mind control and many of the experiments and operations in the MK-SERIES of programs were focused on mind control and behavioral modification and creation experiments as well as the substances to bring those changes about, they also focused on the development, transformation, mutation, use and delivery of almost every kind of disease and illness known to man.

According to Dr. David Barret who I spoke to last year regarding the “events” of 9-11, the CIA, according to Fidel Castro’s bodyguard Fabian Escalante, has attempted to kill the Cuban president an astonishing 638 times. Dr. Barret says, “The CIA's methods included exploding cigars, biological warfare agents painted on Castro's diving suit, deadly pills, toxic bacteria in coffee, an exploding speaker's podium, snipers, poison-wielding female friends, and explosive underwater sea shells.”

In an article on the matter of President Chavez’s assassination Dr. ***** (LINK1) even names the possible assassins as being a group called the Asteroids “the world's most expensive and accomplished professional killers” who specialize in plane crashes and assassinating heads of state. Dr. Barret does not go so far as blaming the US Government but he does say it was probably the “Banksters” who truly run the United States who were responsible for the assassination of Chavez.

Vice President Nicolas Maduro’s expulsion of US Air Force Attache Colonel David Delmonaco, and Assistant Air Force Attache Major Devlin Kostal for attempting to coerce active Venezuelan military officials to join in destabilization projects and for attempting to instigate a military coup against the Venezuelan government, may be just the tip of the iceberand no doubt the Venezuelan Security Services have more information than they are letting out.

Maduro has recently also lashed out at what he called "the corrupt Venezuelan right" for engaging in a psychological war seeking "scenarios of violence as a pretext for foreign intervention," Meaning of course US intervention.

Vice President Maduro has also referred to the late leader of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, Yasser Arafat, as someone who was “inoculated with an illness” and another victim of US secret assassination.

In 2011 Chavez said: ““Wouldn't it be weird if they had developed a technology for inducing cancer and nobody knows up until now?”

Some bacteria that cause cancer are the following: Helicobacter Pylori can cause stomach cancer, Streptococcus Bovis is associated with colorectal cancer, Chlamydia Pneumoniea is connected to lung cancer, Salmonella Typhi can lead to gallbladder cancer and Mychoplasma.

There are also viruses that cause cancer and they include: the most common Hepatitis viruses, including hepatitis B and C, Human Papilloma viruses, the Human T-Lymphotropic virus, Kaposi’s Herpesvirus, Merkel Cell Polyomavirus and the Epstein–Barr virus.

The most common and widespread and perhaps difficult to fight as it spreads throughout the tissues of the stomach area is the Helicobacter Pylori virus. Media reports say Chavez was in a great deal of pain and the repeated treatments he received may point to this virus and we might postulate it was the one which may have infected the late president. However as I am not an expert I am only speculating.

Common means of delivering this virus may be saliva, from a kiss for example, or through drinking water or other liquid such as a soup. There are vaccines and cures for this kind of virus meaning that if an assassin was infected and kissed the target, they could be quickly cured. As this virus is so common and widespread, especially in the developing world, it would be almost impossible to trace.

If President Hugo Chavez was in fact assassinated we do not know at this point. Was it possible? Yes. Was it likely? I think you are living in a McDonald's induced fantasy world if you doubt it for one second.

The US "Attaches" were CIA posing as Air Force Officers. If you doubt that fact think about this, US Air Force Officers do not engage in recruiting for color revolutions and coups. Does not happen. Any idiot who believes they were USAF knows absolutely nothing about how the spooks work. It is an interesting point that the CIA is not only using USAID, Diplomatic posts, and security positions as cover but they have evolved and now are donning USAF uniforms in addition to Marine uniforms etc to do their dirty work.

Chávez Wins to the Displeasure of the West - By John Robles

9 October 2012, 14:08   

Chávez wins to the displeasure of the West

President of Venezuela Hugo Chávez has won the presidential elections with a comfortable lead over his rival in an election many were calling a choice between socialism and capitalism, in the South American country socialism won, to the great displeasure of the West. What the election means for the future of Russian-Venezuelan relations is a continuing and strengthening of close ties and cooperation on all fronts.

This cooperation is something the West and those in Washington’s sphere of influence may not be pleased with. This includes social and cultural collaboration, energy production and the development of energy resources, business, manufacturing, agricultural and scientific development and lastly cooperation in the areas of military development and cooperation.

Speaking to ecstatic supporters gathered around the presidential palace on the eve of his clear victory in the national elections, Venezuela’s President Hugo Chávez declared that "Venezuela will continue along the path of democratic and Bolivarian socialism of the 21st century."

In an election that many in the West saw as a referendum pitting the ideals of socialism against those of capitalism, the people of Venezuela made their choice loud and clear, and they are happy with the path of Democratic Socialism that Chávez has been the champion of.

Shortly after the election results became clear Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke with the leader and congratulated the charismatic Chávez wishing him continued success in the post of president.

During the course of the conversation both leaders gave high marks to the level of mutually beneficial cooperation that has been reached by both countries and confirmed Russian and Venezuela’s shared aim to further strengthen what have traditionally been friendly relations.

The leaders also spoke about further developing and completing many joint plans and stated their commitment to continuing the constructive dialogue between the governments of both countries at all levels.

On the other side of the spectrum the reaction from the West was far from warm, with the White House reacting faster than it did when President Putin was re-elected but not congratulating the elected leader himself. The frosty reaction from the White House to the leader who not long ago said he supported US President Barack Obama came in the form of a terse press statement congratulating the Venezuelan people and not Chávez himself.

As one of the few countries left in the world which pursues a robust and independent foreign policy agenda and internal policies which are far from those which Washington would characterize as being in keeping with their own self-serving interests, Venezuela has found itself increasingly in Washington’s sights. Recently it has even been openly discussed, albeit in hushed tones, that the West may have plans to eliminate Hugo Chávez and even launch military aggression against the Opec Member.

In the field of energy alone Venezuela has been a thorn-in-the-side of the US for a long time with Washington displeased over many of the policies and practices of state controlled oil company PDVSA, including what it sees as “discount” prices offered to the country’s “Socialist Allies”.

Venezuela has some of the largest oil reserves in the world and the West is displeased that they are not able to get their hands on the pie as much as they would like to. On Monday analysts at J.P. Morgan predicted that the win by Chávez would further stifle foreign investment, meaning there will be much less possibility of the West getting their share of Venezuela’s riches.

Experts and analysts from all the over the world may also see the win by Chávez as a cementing of his position on the US list for regime change with many continuing to say that after Syria and Iran Venezuela will be next.


Hugo Chavez was a Humble Man who Transformed the World - Rick Rozoff

Hugo Chavez was a humble man who transformed the world - Rozoff

7 March, 12:27     Download audio file

Hugo Chavez was a humble man from humble origins who did more than anyone else to lift up and unite the countries and the people of Latin America after being subjugated to decades of US imperialism. He was an inspiration and a beacon who will be sorely missed by many. Hours after the passing of the late President of Venezuela Hugo Chavez, Rick Rozoff spoke with John Robles about the legacy and the positive changes the late leader single-handedly brought to the world.

Robles: In our discussions of NATO expansion, US imperialistic movements all over the globe, many times we’ve talked about Hugo Chavez and his independence and the way he stood up to the US. Can you give us your opinions of the great achievements of Mr. Hugo Chavez?

Rozoff: The late and very much lamented, Hugo Chavez was a remarkable man but in many ways remarkable despite the fact that he was not remarkable. That is: he was born in a very humble family, one that might even be described as impoverished. He was born in a village. He was of part Indigenous, that is: Native American, Indian background, as well as reportedly of African background.

He was somebody who resembles people like you or me, our parents, our grandparents: people who haven’t gone to elite schools, people who have not been born in privilege and have been selected from birth, if you will, for positions of honor and power. A simple man who applied himself and developed his talents and his abilities, but most of all his dedication.

We have to remember that his election as President of Venezuela in 1999 set the stage for, heralded, a whole series of election victories and transformations throughout Latin America, Central as well as South America, in countries like Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil, Nicaragua, El Salvador, that he himself was the prime mover in setting up what is known by the acronym of ALBA (The Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America) that he was the prime mover in setting up something by the acronym of CELAC (The Community of Latin American and Caribbean States), the Bank of the South, TeleSur (the television network for the South America).

It was this one man instrumental in turning the tide of Latin America and in many ways of the southern hemisphere of the world that has been wracked by the neoliberalism of the 1990s.

And his actions have been described, I think very accurately John, as having, on his initiative that we have seen the reversal of 200 years of the Monroe Doctrine.

A few years ago when Russian and Venezuelan vessels participated in a joint naval exercise in the Caribbean. It was exactly in that context, it was remarked that this had basically reversed the 200 years of the Monroe Doctrine, that is of Washington and the United States claiming exclusive sphere of influence throughout the entire western hemisphere.

And that this was the doing of Hugo Chavez, this humble former soldier, who became 14-year-president of Venezuela, one who read distributed the wealth from petroleum and other industries in the country to benefit the agrarian, as well as the rural poor, or offered major economic assistance, including to subsidize energy deals with countries throughout the Caribbean and Latin America, even with parts of the United States, as a matter of fact, New York City.

He reconfigured the power relationships not only in the Western Hemisphere, but globally, in a way that could not had been foreseen.

You know, the head of state of a country that isn’t a tremendously large one, isn’t a tremendously powerful one, certainly not in military terms, but this is a man who made frequent visits to Russia, to the African continent, to the Middle East, to China, who cultivated relationships with the emerging multi-polar world, particularly those nations represented in BRICS: Brazil, Russia, India, Russia, China and South Africa. And he was arguably the most persuasive advocate for a newly emerging system of multi-polarity in the world, of anyone I know.


Robles: Let me ask you about Nicolas Maduro the Vice President. Yesterday he said that Hugo Chavez’s cancer was part of a conspiracy against him and basically he had been poisoned by enemies.

He also expelled two US military attachés from the country. Would you care to speculate on those accusations, thta he made?

Rozoff: On the first accusation, you know that the suspicious incidents of cancer amongst independent Latin American heads of state; in Argentina, in Bolivia, earlier in Brazil, in Venezuela, even one can argue, with Fidel Castro in Cuba, that there certainly is room for legitimate suspicion and investigation.

I might recommend a book that was published in the last couple of years with the intriguing title “Mary’s Monkey”, a book written about the late Mary Sherman and about CIA linked operations in the early 1960s to actually develop the types of cancer for use against political adversaries. So, it’s not that far-fetched an accusation.

On the second score, the fact that the two US Embassy personnel have been declared persona-non-grata and expelled from, or invited to leave Venezuela, I think what is of most concern to us right now is the fact that, should a new election be held because of the death of Hugo Chavez, that the United States would certainly kick into high gear the entire color revolution operation that has been employed in the past; in Yugoslavia, Georgia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Lebanon and so forth. But we may see it done on a much more ambitious scale even than we saw in the countries that I’ve just mentioned, just as Venezuela has been the bellwether, has been the prototype for the transformation that has occurred throughout Latin America in the last 14 years. So, the US sees it, I suppose as the transformation, the revolution, that needs to be reversed first.

Robles: Rick, if we could maybe about a minute more and I really appreciate you speaking with me at this late hour.

Rozoff: Thank you for the opportunity.

You know, I think when talking about somebody like Chavez, who again was as humble and unpretentious person as any of us could hope to be, that in speaking of him nevertheless, you know it is almost a paradox, I am reminded of the lines in the Bible, in the Gospel, that I don’t feel worthy to lace his sandals.

I mean I can pay him a tribute, but it’s a tribute of a very simple person who was immensely grateful and stands in eternal admiration of everything that he has done.

 And all the people that he has made enthusiastic about the process that he in many ways initiated, and that his faith and the faith that he has instilled in them will continue. And I’m very much saddened with his demise. I’m very proud of his accomplishments.

I’m very confident that Latin America and the world will continue towards a world that is really worthy of mankind.

Cancer epidemic among Latin American leaders not coincidental – Dr. Kevin Barret

Cancer epidemic among Latin American leaders not coincidental – Dr. Barret

With the untimely death of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez many respected experts and individuals are finally listening to what Hugo Chavez said when he publically contemplated the possibility that the fact that all anti-US imperialist Latin American leaders, including himself, had come down with cancer or heart conditions, was not coincidental. Dr. Kevin Barret adds his voice to those questioning the suspicious nature of the death and the “coincidental” epidemic of cancer among Latin American leaders.

I am speaking with Dr. Kevin Barrett, a Doctor in Arabic and Islamic Studies and the Co-founder of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for Truth. He is also the owner of

Robles: Now, you wrote an article shortly after the death of Hugo Chavez and what he called “an epidemic of cancer” among anti-US Latin American leaders. Can you tell us why you are certain his death and those incidences of cancer were not coincidental?

Barret: It really can’t be a coincidence that all of the leading opponents of the US Empire in Latin America suddenly caught cancer at the same time.

Besides Hugo Chavez we have Argentina’s president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, who got cancer symptoms although it may not have been cancer, but these weapons may not cause ordinary cancers anyway. Her husband Nestor had died of a serious heart attack at age 60 in 2010.

Then we had Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff, who caught cancer, Paraguay’s Fernando Lugo, Lula of Brazil and of course retired Cuban leader Fidel Castro, came down with cancer in 2006.

This is really the top 6 or 7 people counting, Nestor Kirchner, that the US empire would want to take out. All of them except him had cancer, and he died of a heart attack, somehow I don’t think that is a coincidence.

And if you look at the US history of meddling in Latin America and all over the world, assassinating leaders, overthrowing governments installing fascist regimes, this is pretty much all in a day’s work.

Additionally we know that the US did try to assassinate Hugo Chavez before. Everybody knows about the coup d’etat attempt in 2002.

What most people don’t know about is that Venezuelan prosecutor Danilo Anderson when was looking into and investigating that coup d’etat was killed in a car bomb in Caracas on November 18th, 2004, and later the prosecutors in Venezuela got a confession out of one of his killers, a man named Giovani Jose Vasquez De Armas. Who is a member of Colombia’s right-wing paramilitary group the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia, that confessed, to the Venezuelan authorities that not only he had been involved in killing Danilo Anderson, and plotting to kill Chavez, but he did that with the help of the CIA and FBI.

So they were trying to kill Hugo Chavez in 2004. Given the track record of the US Empire and this mysterious outbreak of 6 cancers among their top six enemies, I don’t see how anybody could write this off as a coincidence.

Robles: Since when has FBI gone international in assassinations?

Barret: You know, you’d be surprised John, the FBI is a profoundly corrupt agency at the top. There are plenty of honest low-level FBI agents but the FBI at the top is essentially is an appendage of organized crime. It is been like that for a long time.

J. Edgar Hoover was the head of the FBI during its formative many, many decades and was viewed by some as the most powerful man in America. Reason was that he held blackmail and film and photos on all of the most important political leaders in the US, and in other countries in some cases, and of course he was controlled by the actual head of organized crime internationally Meyer Lansky who had similar blackmail photos on Hoover.

So the FBI is profoundly corrupt, and they have worked with other US agencies and non-governmental private assassins in other operations.

So, I don’t have any problem accepting the confession of De Armas that an FBI and a CIA agent were involved at the committee meeting that plotted the killings of Danilo Anderson and Hugo Chavez.

Robles: You’ve mentioned in your article a group of assassins called the Asteroids. Can you tell us a little bit about them and what you know about them?

Barret: Sure, the best single source on the Asteroids is the book “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” by John Perkins. He knew the real hit men. In fact I think he knows 2 or 3 of them personally, and Perkins job when he was an the economic hit man was to travel to countries around the world on behalf of the big banks that own the US government, these are the IMF, the World Bank. He was working for them and I think he had a connection with the National Security Agency as well.

So his job as an economic hit man was to go to these countries, approach the president, have a meeting with the president, sit down and say, “Okay, I’ve got fist-full of hundred dollar bills in this hand, I’ve got a bullet in the other. Which one do you want?”

If the president cooperated, the president would take huge unpayable loans from the IMF and the World Bank, and then that country would drown in debt and go bankrupt and the Banksters would move in and seize control of its resources and its government.

If the president of that country did not cooperate, then the Asteroids would be sent in. The Asteroids are the world’s highest level, highest-paid professional killers. They specialize in causing plane crashes. They are suspect in many, many plane crashes in the United States as well as abroad.

They undoubtedly killed Senator Paul Wellstone in 2002 to prevent him from looking into 9/11 and stopping the Iraq war, and they’ve killed a number of Latin American leaders as well.

So, the Asteroids are the next line of attack on these third world countries, and if they can’t succeed in assassinating the leader if his security is too good, this was the case with Fidel Castro, it was a case with Saddam Hussein, and it was the case in Panama with General Noriega.

Robles: What about Muammar Gaddafi?

Barret: Yeah, Gaddafi is another one, where they had to actually invade the country to get rid of the leader. So, that is the last final option, is to invade with the US forces.

The only reason they didn’t do it to Cuba is that after the missile crisis in 1962 the US signed an agreement with Cuba and with Russia, that it would not invade Cuba.

So, this kind of hamfisted, criminal attempts to take over the world through overthrowing and killing leaders is just business as usual for the US Empire.

Robles: I wrote an article myself about this and I was doing a little bit of research on cancer delivery methods and things like this, and I kept coming up on these CIA programs like MKULTRA, Paperclip and Doctor Cornelius Rhoads etc.

Can you tell us about any CIA programs that you know about involved in the delivery of biological agents or for example cancers?

Barret: The most interesting one is the program described in the book “Dr. Mary’s Monkey” by Edward Haslam. Haslam is a very good thorough researcher and he documents the amazing story of the cancer laboratory in New Orleans that was operating out of a secret US government program and among the people involved in this program researching ways in delivering cancer to enemies was a guy named David Ferrie.

David Ferrie was a defrocked priest, defrocked for his pedophilia, he was also a CIA agent and a pilot who had been involved in trying to overthrow Fidel Castro.

David Ferrie had a huge home laboratory, he was testing ways of delivering cancer, he and the CIA who employed him of course, were planning to use it to go after Castro, Castro’s associates and presumably other non-cooperative leaders, people like Hugo Chavez would one day become.

Cancer is a very convenient assassination tool – Dr. Kevin Barret

13 March, 12:35       Download audio file

One of the prime suspects in the JFK Assassination, who dies mysteriously before he could testify in court, was working on cancer delivery mechanisms for the CIA. Such programs continue and assassination by cancer and other illnesses is convenient because of its deniability. In an interview with the VOR outspoken Professor Dr. Kevin Barret, details the above as well as the Mossad connection to 9/11.


Hello! This is John Robles, I'm speaking with Dr. Kevin Barret - a Doctor in Arabic and Islamic studies and the co-founder of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for Truth. He is also the owner of

Barret: This is quite a fascinating story given that David Ferrie, not only, was trying to give people cancer for the CIA at that time, working on delivery systems, that he was also a prime suspect in the JFK assassination. He was actually being prosecuted by New Orleans’s District attorney Jim Garrison. And he himself died suddenly and mysteriously shortly before he was scheduled to testify in court against his fellow JFK assassination conspirators. And his killing essentially killed Jim Garrison’s case and allowed JFK’s killers to walk free.

Robles: Do you know any programs in existence right now that are, actually working on cancer delivery? Most of the stuff I found was a couple of decades old. Do you know anything that is going on right now?

Barret: No, I don’t. And if I did, they’d probably have to kill me.

Robles: Yes, right!

Barret: Seriously, this sort of thing is, of course, normally kept secret, it is very rare when somebody talks about it.

We know that there’ve been all sorts of assassination attempts, and you know, there were 600-some attempts on Castro’s life by the CIA, and they tried every methodology you could ever imagine. So, obviously they are working on this as well. And it is very convenient for them because this is deniable. You know, they can say: “Oh, our top 7 enemies in Latin America have all just either gotten canсer or dropped dead, it is just a coincidence! You must be a crazy conspiracy theorist to even think twice about it.”

Robles: You’ve mentioned the connection between the author of the book and the NSA. Is the NSA also involved in stuff like this?

Barret: Well, I think that at the top level, you have a lot of overlapping of people and agencies, and you also have some overlapping of the government agencies with private forces. And ultimately, I think the private forces are actually, probably more powerful than the government forces.

John Perkins was basically working for the World Bank. There were some kind of NSA connections, but his official job title I believe was with World Bank. And he said that these “Asteroids”, these professional killers who like to cause plane crushes and other kinds of very exotic and elaborate ways of killing their victims, are essentially private contractors.

And they sometimes work for the CIA, or other government agencies, they sometimes work for the World Bank or the leaders of these big banks, and they sometimes work for private individuals.

And the same thing is true within the CIA. Some people are actually on the government payroll, and they are not all that well-paid, and then there are people that they recruit, like the CIA station chief recruits a bunch of so-called informants, and some of this people are thugs and killers and drug dealers and so on. So, when those informants do something, it is deniable because they are not actually collecting a regular government pay check.

So, this kind of work is done in a very, kind of strange cross sections of ways of sending government and private people to do it.

Robles: I see. I found it interesting that the Vice President, Nicolas Maduro, he expelled, on the eve of Hugo Chavez’s death, two US Air Force military attachés. They were accused of trying to recruit military personnel for destabilization exercises or programs. Obviously, that’s not something the US Air Force does I think. Or is it? And is this something new for, if it’s CIA, for them to be using US Air Force cover?

Barret: Sure, the CIA always uses military cover, it happens all the time. There is a fellow named Brad, whose last name I’m forgetting. He is one of our best sources on what was going in organizing the JFK assassination at the CIA station in Miami. And he was actually there at that CIA station in Miami under, I believe it was US Marine Corp cover, either that or Army. It is one of the many-many examples of how the CIA runs people in all kinds of government covers, the military would be the number one form of doing this. Like these Air Force guys in Venezuela. But…

When Jesse Ventura, for example, took over as governor of the State of Minnesota, the first thing he did, was… He was marched downstairs into a big room in the basement that he didn’t know existed in the state capital, and he was sat down with the whole bunch of CIA agents who were operating under the cover of state employees of the State of Minnesota. And these CIA agents proceeded to grill Jesse Ventura to find out precisely how he had managed to get himself elected governor without playing the usual game and being a third party candidate.

The CIA has… It is totally illegal, they are not supposed to even operate within the borders of the US, but CIA has essentially run the US along with the other criminal organizations and big money people, at least since they killed President Kennedy in 1963. And even though their charter says they cannot operate in the US, they could care less about the charter. They are everywhere, they can do anything they want. And so, it is not at all surprising that these kinds of people with their bloated egos, are running around the world killing perceived enemies.

Robles: So, you would say it is a given that Hugo Chavez was assassinated?

Barret: Absolutely! As I said, they tried that coup in 2002. They tried to organize a more conventional assassination in 2004 and they missed, but these people always should keep on trying. And so, when all of these; the top enemies list of the US empire, suddenly they all get cancer, all at once. I just can’t see how anybody can be seriously claiming that it just happened.

Robles: What do you think about Yasser Arafat, Milosevic, I mean would you like to talk about them for a minute?

Barret: Sure. Well, Milosevic, I don’t know a whole lot about that, but it is rumored that he was killed. Arafat obviously was killed by his enemies, the Israelis. I actually suspect that Edward Said, who was the biggest intellectual enemy of the Israelis here in the US, was also killed.

The Israelis are even more ruthless than the Americans, pound for pound, you know, population for population, they are an even more murderous country than the US is.

And Arafat was a thorn in the side of the right-wing forces in Israel, that were, I believe, the number one force behind the 9-11 operation, which was a coup d’état here in the US by the hardliners! Notably Zionist Neoconservative hardliners, and they essentially were trying to redraw the map of the Middle East, allow Israel not just to survive, but to thrive. And everything they’ve done since 9-11 has been towards that end.

And one of the things they needed to do was get rid of Arafat because Arafat had a certain amount of international prestige, he was able to command the loyalty of his people and hold the Palestinian people together. He was basically somebody that was in the way of destroying and fragmenting the Palestinian opposition to Zionism.

They tried to kill him many times before. And so, when he drops dead of such a mysterious illness that the best French doctors can’t figure out, I don’t think you really have to be a paranoid to understand what probably happened.

Robles: We talked about 9-11 in the past, we talked about the planned demolitions, that were the collapses of all the buildings. Can you give us a little bit of information about this Mossad and Israeli connection?

Barret: Sure! You know, speaking of various heart attacks and cancers, we start with pointing out that one of the first couple of major researchers into the Israeli connection to 9-11, who is a guy at named Justin Raimondo, who was more responsible than anyone else for getting the story out to a broad audience, about how the Israelis had been running a massive spy operation against the US during the run up to 9-11 and this appeared to be tied into 9-11. Raimondo, right after he broke the story, suddenly he had a heart attack while working out in the gym. He is a young guy, in perfect condition…

Robles: Yes, I remember that!

Barret: And after that happened, he didn’t say another word about 9-11 and he still really hasn’t. So, the tie ins between the Israelis and 9-11 are certainly very interesting.

Robles: So, you think that was an artificially induced assassination attempt, I mean the heart attack?

Barret: Sure! You know, I don’t think it is a coincidence that the guy who is most responsible for exposing this Israeli connection to 9-11 suddenly gets a heart attack and then shuts up. And the Israeli connection to 9-11 is evident in many areas, one is the big smoking gun of 9-11, which is the controlled demolition of building 7.

The landlord of the World Trade Center, who purchased the entire World Trade Center two months before 9-11 and doubled the insurance, is a fellow named Larry Silverstein. He is a big arch-Zionist billionaire and a close friend of Benjamin Netanyahu, who speaks to Netanyahu once a week on the phone.

Silverstein actually, accidently, screwed up and confessed on the national TV to having demolished his own building, building 7. And he still managed to walk away with nearly $1 billion in insurance money for that building alone and another $4.5 billion for the rest of his property, even though he had only put down only $15 million of his own two months before 9-11.

And of course the World Trade Center and the towers were condemned for asbestos. There was a court order that that asbestos had to be removed, from a court case earlier in 2001. It would have cost possibly in the double-digit billions, to scrape that asbestos off all of the steel frame members of the Twin Towers.

So, when Larry Silverstein, the noted Zionist crime figure, purchased this complex and doubled the insurance two months before 9-11, he would have just gone broke in just a few months if those buildings had continued to stand. They had high vacancy rates, they were condemned for asbestos, the city had been desperately trying to figure out a way to take them down for more than a decade.

And so, when a mobster buys them, doubles the insurance, confesses to having blown up one of them and walks away with a big pile of insurance money from a mobbed up court, it is pretty clear what happened. And the fact that he is a close friend of Netanyahu and an arch-Zionist is no coincidence.

Other evidence surrounding the Israeli connection to 9-11 includes the so called “Dancing Israelis”, the team of Mossad Agents who were arrested after wildly celebrating the attacks on the Twin Towers and the destruction of the towers. They were dancing around, flicking cigarette lighters, taking pictures of each other, flicking lighters in front of the burning towers and then howling and cheering when they were blown up. These guys spent a couple of months in prison in the US. They failed lie detector tests and then they were sent back to Israel by Michael Chertoff; dual US-Israeli citizen.

But the most important tie in between Israel and 9-11 possibly, among all of them, and there are so many, is the attempts to blow up the bridges and tunnels on 9-11.

Most Americans have never even heard beyond the first news reports that Israelis were arrested on the George Washington Bridge with the truck full of explosives that then blew up.

These guys were then sent back to Israel by Bernard Kerik, the then Police Commissioner who is now in prison for corruption, presumably under orders from the Bush Administration. And there were other trucks full of explosive which were intended to blow up other bridge tunnels.

This story has been systematically suppressed. I’m told by inside sources, that there’ve been a number of murders designed to cover this up, witnesses have been killed, all kinds of efforts have been gone to, to keep this secret.

So, these are just some example of the many-many ties-ins between Israel and 9-11 coup d'état.

  The CIA has Attempted to Assassinate 50 Leaders Including Chavez - William Blum

The CIA has attempted to assassinate 50 foreign leaders including Chavez – William Blum

14 March, 10:53     Download audio file

The late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez was warned by Fidel Castro to be careful of a very specific attack, namely a quick jab from an infected needle. Such a warning coming from a leader who has reportedly been the target of CIA assassination plots more than 600 times in over 50 years, was sure to be heeded. Was the illness of Hugo Chavez a completely deniable assassination by the CIA? William Blum spoke with the VOR’s John Robles and discussed this issue and more.

Robles: I’ve read your Anti-Empire report regarding Hugo Chavez. Can you give us your comments on speculation that he was assassinated by the CIA?

Blum: I cannot prove it of course, but I believe he was. It would be totally in keeping with the entire history of the CIA and its attitude towards people like Hugo Chavez.

The CIA has attempted to assassinate more than 50 foreign leaders and successfully at least half the time. And very few of them were as despised by the US Government as Chavez was, I would say. So, there would be no reason at all to expect that the CIA would not at least plan on killing, and the nature of his ailment is very odd.

He went from a cancer, which would not go away despite several sessions of chemotherapy and what have you. Then it went to serious lung infections, which would not go away no matter what they did. And then it went to a massive heart attack. All in the same man with no apparent cause, he was only 58 years old, and as far as we know he was a very healthy until this happened, it is all very odd.

And given the great motivation that the US Government and the persons in the CIA has put for killing a man like Hugo Chavez, I’m pretty sure that the CIA played a role in this.

Robles: Do you know are have you heard of any credible new technology or new programs that could deliver such a cancer?

Blum: The means would be a needle with a quick sharp jab and what you need is getting one person close enough to Chavez to do that.

Chavez was always in the public eye, he was always embracing people. There must have been countless occasions in the past few years when he was vulnerable to a quick jab by a needle that would be the method of transmitting the ailments.

Robles: Did he ever complain that he had been poked by something in public? Were there any reports of anything like that happening that you had heard about?

Blum: He did mention that Fidel Castro warned him about just that. He said: “A quick jab with a needle, and they’ll do… I don’t know what!” Actually he was told by Fidel.

Robles: A quick jab with a needle. Do you think that happened with Fidel because he had become very ill?

Blum: Well, Fidel… According to Cuban intelligence, there were more than 600 attempts on the life of Fidel Castro by the CIA. There is an entire book on that subject by Cuban Intelligence.

And many of the methods were pretty bizarre, including an exploding cigar, but over the course of 50 years the Cubans claim there were more than 600 attempts on his life and it may have taken just one with Chavez.

Robles: Have you heard anything from your sources or from where you get some of your information? Have you heard anything detailing any connection between these two US Air Force Attaches that were expelled from the country and the death of Hugo Chavez?

Blum: No. I would assume that there is a connection but I don’t know if the Venezuelan Government has actually said so.

Getting back to Chavez’s case,we have to keep in mind that four other South American leaders, prominent people on the left, all came down with cancer within the past year or two.

Robles: I think it was seven, wasn’t it, altogether?

Blum: The four that I named in my report… You can add the ones that you know just for my information… were Cristina Fernandez…

Robles: … De Kirchner, right…

Blum: of Argentina, Dilma Rousseff of Brazil, Fernando Lugo of Paraguay, the former Brazilian head of state Lula da Silva. Who would you add into that list?

Robles: Well, and then of course Hugo Chavez himself…

Blum: Castro is one of them…

Robles: I would add Castro to the list and Kirchner’s husband who died of a mysterious heart attack as well.

Blum: Right!

Robles: We might add that as a mysterious illness, not exactly a cancer but…

Blum: Right! If the CIA was involved it doesn’t have to be cancer necessarily of course.

Robles: Oh, sure, it could be anything! Have you heard anything about cancer strains or any kind of killing weapons like this, any kind of biological weapons that would give maybe cancer-like symptoms, not exactly a certain type of cancer?

Blum: I very well may have read of such over the years, I have read so much about the CIA, but at the moment I can’t think of anything to supply you with that information. Although we do know, it is well known, that for decades the CIA was looking for a method of killing somebody which would not leave a trace. The CIA itself has used those words. For the entire period of the Cold War that was a major stated project of the CIA. But where that stands today, I have no idea.

Robles: Yes, of course that is all very secret and no one is going to talk about it, but perhaps there are some echoes or some whispers? Maybe somebody has come out and said something? What other reasons would you give to back up the argument that he was assassinated?

Blum: I will mention there is no one in the entire universe who was more hated, no leader, more hated than Chavez was by the US Government. In the eyes of the US power that be, Chavez was worse than Fidel Castro and Salvador Allende.

Robles: Why was he so hated?

Blum: Because he was the most outspoken leader in the world when it came to criticizing the US foreign policy. He never pulled his punches for a moment, he made a claim that it was all crimes against humanity and the US leaders were war criminals, and he said so explicitly. It is unusual for a head of state to be talking that way. And at the UN he attacked Bush in front of the whole world.

Robles: Oh yes, I remember he said that the Devil had been there the day before or something, and it still smelled like sulfur.

Blum: Yes, Bush had spoken to the UN before Chavez from the same platform. And Chavez said there was a smell of sulfur in the air because of that.

Robles: That’s usually the domain of the United States, I mean… Isn’t it? I mean Bush was calling everybody the axis of evil, and all this stuff, branding everyone evil. Wasn’t that kind of a shock to see the same thing done to an American leader?

Blum: Yeah, it is a shock for anyone under any circumstances to be so outspoken in the criticism of the US foreign policy. It is a point in Chavez’s favor that he could have the honesty and the courage to say such things, which very much needed to be said.

Robles: So, you supported the way he stood up?

Blum: Well, in general yes. I think there certainly were times when he may have overdone it, even for me. I mean, he felt obliged to comment on everything under the sun, and I thought several times that he could have held off on saying certain things, they were not serving any good purpose. But that’s a minor criticism of his overall marvelous record.

Robles: You say he had a marvelous record. What do you think were his major achievements in your opinion?

Blum: What he’s brought to the poor people of Venezuela in the way of education and healthcare, and housing, and what have you. And what he brought to the rest of the South America, he formed various anti-US empire blocs which stood in the way of expansion of the US influence.

He and others formed a new… A counter to the OAS, the Organization of American States, which for decades has been dominated and corrupted by the US and Canada. And they formed a new organization in South America excluding the US and Canada. So it was that simple.

Robles: Do you think his achievements will continue or do you think the US will be successful in rolling back everything he did? Which of course I assume they would want to.

Blum: Yes, they would want to. But if Maduro who was chosen and backed by Chavez, wins, and he is expected to win in the election next month, then most of it will continue, I assume.
