NOMINADO A CORTE SUPREMA DE EEUU Y ACADÉMICA QUE LO ACUSA DE INTENTO DE VIOLACIÓN COMPARECERÁN ANTE SENADO.

El presidente del Comité Judicial del Senado de Estados Unidos, Chuck Grassley, anunció que se realizará otra audiencia sobre el candidato a la Corte Suprema Brett Kavanaugh el próximo lunes tras las acusaciones de que intentó violar a una niña de 15 años cuando era estudiante de preparatoria.

Tanto Kavanaugh como su acusadora, la profesora Christine Blasey Ford, testificarán. Ford dijo a The Washington Post que Kavanaugh y su amigo la empujaron a una habitación durante una fiesta y que la intento violar.

El martes la senadora repúblicana Susan Collins pidió al Comité Judicial del Senado que permita al abogado de Kavanaugh  examinar a Ford durante la audiencia programada para el lunes. De inmediato grupos defensores de derechos de las mujeres acusaron al Partido Republicano de estar más interesado en intentar difamar a Ford que en encontrar la verdad,

“Collins parece haber olvidado que Brett Kavanaugh es el que ha sido acusado de un delito, no Christine Blasey Ford”, dijo la codirectora de CREDO Action, Heidi Hess.  Por su parte la activista Shaunna Thomas dijo que la recomendación de Collins al Comité Judicial del Senado es “más que vergonzosa” “Esto no es un juicio, Es la audiencia de asalto sexual de Kavanaugh y una entrevista de trabajo para quien aspira a ser magistrado de la máxima corte.

UNICEF ALERTA QUE FALLECE UN NIÑO CADA 5 SEGUNDOS POR CAUSAS PREVENIBLES.

UNICEF y GAVI proporcionan vacunas y suplementos de vitamina A a los menores de cinco para activar sus sistemas inmunológicos.

Durante el año 2017 falleció un niño cada cinco segundos por causas prevenibles, según indica un nuevo informe conjunto de UNICEF, la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS), la división de población de la ONU y el Banco Mundial.

La cifra total de menores de quince años fallecidos cuyas muertes podían haberse evitado 2017 ascendió a 6,3 millones en 2017. De no tomarse medidas urgentes, entre el 2018 y el 2030 morirán 56 millones de menores, la mitad de ellos recién nacidosPese a estas cifras, cada año hay menos muertes infantiles en todo el mundo.

 

El estudio cifra en6,3 millones el número de menores de 15 años que fallecieron durante el año pasado e indica que la gran mayoría de ellos, 5,4 millones, perecieron durante los primeros cinco años de vida, casi la mitad de ellos recién nacidos.

Mark Hereward, director asociado de la división de Investigación de Datos y Políticas de UNICEF explicó las principales causas de estas elevadas cifras.

“En los menores de cinco años las enfermedades juegan un papel muy importante y, para reducir sus tasas, la intervención más fácil y directa es la inmunización que sirve para reducir el número de muertes. Cuando se logra este objetivo, las principales causas de muerte son la neumonía y la diarrea, que son razonablemente fáciles de tratar, pero se necesita una mayor intervención de los sistemas de salud para poder hacerles frente”.

De no tomarse medidas urgentes morirán 56 millones de niños menores de cinco años entre el 2018 y el 2030, señaló la directora de Datos, Investigaciones y Políticas de UNICEF, Laurence Chandy.

“A pesar de los progresos notables que hemos logrado desde 1990, millones de niños siguen muriendo simplemente debido a su identidad o al lugar donde han nacido. Si aplicamos soluciones sencillas como el suministro de medicamentos, agua potable, electricidad y vacunas podemos cambiar esa realidad para todos los niños”, dijo la experta.

África y Asia encabezan la lista de defunciones.

Asimismo, el informe destaca que la mitad de los fallecimientos de menores de cinco años durante 2017 se produjeron en el África Subsahariana, mientras que el 30% ocurrieron en Asia del Sur.

Una de las grandes disparidades recogidas en el informe muestra que en los países de altos ingresos solamente muere 1 de cada 185 menores de cinco años por 1 de cada 13 en la misma franja de edad en el África Subsahariana.

La doctora Princess Nono Simelela, subdirectora general de Salud Familiar, de la Mujer y el Niño de la OMS manifestó que no se ha de permitir la muerte de millones de menores por falta de acceso a agua, saneamiento, nutrición adecuada o servicios básicos de salud.

“Debemos priorizar la tarea de facilitar a todos los niños el acceso universal a servicios de salud de calidad, especialmente en el momento del nacimiento y durante los primeros años de vida, a fin de darles la mejor oportunidad posible de sobrevivir y prosperar”, señaló.

La mayoría de los niños menores de 5 años mueren por causas que se pueden evitar o tratar, como complicaciones durante el parto, neumonía, diarrea, sepsis neonatal y paludismo. Dentro de este grupo de edad también existen diferencias regionales, ya que el riesgo que corre un niño de morir en África subsahariana es quince veces mayor que en Europa.

El primer mes de vida es el más peligroso

A nivel global, el período más arriesgado de la vida de un bebé es su primer mes. Durante 2017, 2,5 millones de recién nacidos murieron durante los primeros 30 días de vida.  Así, por ejemplo, un bebé nacido en el África subsahariana o en Asia meridional tiene nueve veces más probabilidades de morir que un bebé nacido en un país de altos ingresos durante ese periodo.
Otras disparidades apuntadas en el informe indican que las tasas de mortalidad de menores de cinco años entre los niños que habitan en zonas rurales son, de media, un 50% más altas que las de los niños de zonas urbanas, y que los bebés nacidos de madres sin formación tienen más del doble de probabilidades de morir antes de cumplir los cinco años que los de madres que han cursado estudios secundarios o superiores.

La noticia positiva del informe la proporciona la reducción de las muertes anuales de los niños menores de cinco años desde el 1990 hasta el 2017.  De los 12,6 millones de fallecimientos que se registraron al inicio de la década de los 90, se pasó a 5,4 millones el año pasado. Entre los 5 y los 14 años, la cifra se redujo de 1,7 millones a menos de un millón durante el mismo período de tiempo.

GOBIERNO CUBANO ACEPTA DIALOGAR CON EEUU EN IGUALDAD DE CONDICIONES.

 El presidente de Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, dijo estar dispuesto al diálogo con Estados Unidos pero en igualdad de condiciones, mientras no se condicione su soberanía e independencia.

 En una entrevista con la cadena Telesur, el mandatario dijo el domingo que las relaciones con Estados Unidos “hoy están en retroceso” tras la llegada al poder del presidente estadounidense, Donald Trump.

Díaz-Canel criticó las medidas de Trump contra Cuba, que calificó de “mafia anti-cubana”, porque establece limites a las personas, familias y empresarios de EE.UU. que desean mantener relaciones comerciales, financieras y sociales, pues no se les permite viajar a la isla.

INDIGNACIÓN POR ABANDONO DE TRAILER CON CADÁVERES EN JALISCO.

El gobernador del estado mexicano de Jalisco, Aristoteles Sandoval, informó que fue despedido Luis Octavio Cotero, director del Instituto Jalisciense de Ciencias Forenses por el abandono de un tráiler con hasta 100 cadáveres.

 La Fiscalía de Jalisco asegura que  mantiene en el tráiler frigorífico  decenas de cuerpos de personas no identificadas y que no caben en el Instituto Jalisciense de Ciencias Forenses. El fin de semana vecinos denunciaron la presencia del tráiler abandonado donde se desprendía mal olor y escurría sangre, dijeron.

En un principio se informó que se trataba de 157 cuerpos; sin embargo, de acuerdo a la Fiscalía y del Instituto Jalisciense de Ciencias Forenses  contiene entre 80 y 100 cadáveres.

El tráiler fue abandonado primero por varios días en una finca de la colonia La Duraznera, en Talquepaque; luego en un terreno baldío de Tlajomulco, y finalmente fue llevado a una bodega de la zona industrial de Guadalajara.

El martes la Fiscal Central de Jalisco, Marisela Gómez Cobos, dijo a Aristegui Noticia que no en ningún momento se pensó en deshacerse de los cuerpos y que han sido tratados dignamente.

 De la misma forma, dio a conocer que no todos los cadáveres han sido identificados. Gómez Cobos señaló que ese número de cuerpos es resultado de un incremento en la delincuencia que se ha registrado el estado y detalló que están a la espera de que sea concluido un cementerio con 200 criptas en los que se puedan depositar.

GOBIERNO TRUMP IMPONE NUEVOS ARANCELES A CHINA.

CRITICAN A AMLO POR DEFENDER A SECRETARIA IMPLICADA EN DESVIÓ DE MILLONARIOS RECURSOS DESTINADOS A LOS MAS POBRES EN MÉXICO.

Fuerte cuestionamiento está recibiendo el presidente electo de México, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, por asegurar que la secretaria del gobierno de Enrique Peña Nieto, Rosario Robles es chivo expiatorio del saqueo a los fondos públicos.

En una de esas investigaciones se documentó el desvió de 7 mil 670 millones de pesos a través de empresas fantasma durante las gestiones de Robles Berlanga al frente de las Secretarias de Desarrollo Social, Sedesol y de Desarrollo Agrario, Territorial y Urbano, Sedatu.  Recientemente el diario Reforma reporto el envió de 700 millones pesos en efectivo de dinero público a 10 domicilios de empresas inexistentes.

López Obrador declaro el sábado que los presuntos desvíos de fondos destinados a programas para los más pobres del país son un circo y que algunos medios por años no han publicado sobre el saqueo que realizan los de arriba y solo apuntan a chivos expiatorios.

 Los reporteros recordaron al político tabasqueño que por encima de la secretaria que décadas atrás fuera parte de su partido sólo está el presidente Peña Nieto.

Sin embargo López Obrador dijo que si existen casos abiertos de corrupción continuaran bajo su gobierno y que su objetivo es acabar con la corrupción.

Por otra parte el senado federal anuncio que presentará un punto de acuerdo para crear la Comisión Especial de Investigación sobre los presuntos desvíos ocurridos en la Sedesol y la Sedatu, durante las administraciones de Rosario Robles, quien también sería citada a comparecer ante comisiones.

A Timeline of CIA Atrocities

 

  The following article was initially published in 1997. It is in part based on the work of William Blum. Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions since World War II, 1995 (GR Ed. M. Ch.)

By Steve Kangas

The following timeline describes just a few of the hundreds of atrocities and crimes committed by the CIA. (1)

CIA operations follow the same recurring script. First, American business interests abroad are threatened by a popular or democratically elected leader. The people support their leader because he intends to conduct land reform, strengthen unions, redistribute wealth, nationalize foreign-owned industry, and regulate business to protect workers, consumers and the environment. So, on behalf of American business, and often with their help, the CIA mobilizes the opposition. First it identifies right-wing groups within the country (usually the military), and offers them a deal: “We’ll put you in power if you maintain a favorable business climate for us.” The Agency then hires, trains and works with them to overthrow the existing government (usually a democracy). It uses every trick in the book: propaganda, stuffed ballot boxes, purchased elections, extortion, blackmail, sexual intrigue, false stories about opponents in the local media, infiltration and disruption of opposing political parties, kidnapping, beating, torture, intimidation, economic sabotage, death squads and even assassination. These efforts culminate in a military coup, which installs a right-wing dictator. The CIA trains the dictator’s security apparatus to crack down on the traditional enemies of big business, using interrogation, torture and murder. The victims are said to be “communists,” but almost always they are just peasants, liberals, moderates, labor union leaders, political opponents and advocates of free speech and democracy. Widespread human rights abuses follow.

This scenario has been repeated so many times that the CIA actually teaches it in a special school, the notorious “School of the Americas.” (It opened in Panama but later moved to Fort Benning, Georgia.) Critics have nicknamed it the “School of the Dictators” and “School of the Assassins.” Here, the CIA trains Latin American military officers how to conduct coups, including the use of interrogation, torture and murder.

The Association for Responsible Dissent estimates that by 1987, 6 million people had died as a result of CIA covert operations. (2) Former State Department official William Blum correctly calls this an “American Holocaust.”

The CIA justifies these actions as part of its war against communism. But most coups do not involve a communist threat. Unlucky nations are targeted for a wide variety of reasons: not only threats to American business interests abroad, but also liberal or even moderate social reforms, political instability, the unwillingness of a leader to carry out Washington’s dictates, and declarations of neutrality in the Cold War. Indeed, nothing has infuriated CIA Directors quite like a nation’s desire to stay out of the Cold War.

The ironic thing about all this intervention is that it frequently fails to achieve American objectives. Often the newly installed dictator grows comfortable with the security apparatus the CIA has built for him. He becomes an expert at running a police state. And because the dictator knows he cannot be overthrown, he becomes independent and defiant of Washington’s will. The CIA then finds it cannot overthrow him, because the police and military are under the dictator’s control, afraid to cooperate with American spies for fear of torture and execution. The only two options for the U.S at this point are impotence or war. Examples of this “boomerang effect” include the Shah of Iran, General Noriega and Saddam Hussein. The boomerang effect also explains why the CIA has proven highly successful at overthrowing democracies, but a wretched failure at overthrowing dictatorships.

The following timeline should confirm that the CIA as we know it should be abolished and replaced by a true information-gathering and analysis organization. The CIA cannot be reformed — it is institutionally and culturally corrupt.

1929

The culture we lost — Secretary of State Henry Stimson refuses to endorse a code-breaking operation, saying, “Gentlemen do not read each other’s mail.”

1941

COI created — In preparation for World War II, President Roosevelt creates the Office of Coordinator of Information (COI). General William “Wild Bill” Donovan heads the new intelligence service.

1942

OSS created — Roosevelt restructures COI into something more suitable for covert action, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS). Donovan recruits so many of the nation’s rich and powerful that eventually people joke that “OSS” stands for “Oh, so social!” or “Oh, such snobs!”

1943

Italy — Donovan recruits the Catholic Church in Rome to be the center of Anglo-American spy operations in Fascist Italy. This would prove to be one of America’s most enduring intelligence alliances in the Cold War.

1945

OSS is abolished — The remaining American information agencies cease covert actions and return to harmless information gathering and analysis.

Operation PAPERCLIP While other American agencies are hunting down Nazi war criminals for arrest, the U.S. intelligence community is smuggling them into America, unpunished, for their use against the Soviets. The most important of these is Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler’s master spy who had built up an intelligence network in the Soviet Union. With full U.S. blessing, he creates the “Gehlen Organization,” a band of refugee Nazi spies who reactivate their networks in Russia.

Image result for photos of  Reinhard Gehlen the spy master

These include SS intelligence officers Alfred Six and Emil Augsburg (who massacred Jews in the Holocaust), Klaus Barbie (the “Butcher of Lyon”), Otto von Bolschwing (the Holocaust mastermind who worked with Eichmann) and SS Colonel Otto Skorzeny (a personal friend of Hitler’s).Image result for photos of  Colonel Otto Skorzeny

The Gehlen Organization supplies the U.S. with its only intelligence on the Soviet Union for the next ten years, serving as a bridge between the abolishment of the OSS and the creation of the CIA. However, much of the “intelligence” the former Nazis provide is bogus. Gehlen inflates Soviet military capabilities at a time when Russia is still rebuilding its devastated society, in order to inflate his own importance to the Americans (who might otherwise punish him). In 1948, Gehlen almost convinces the Americans that war is imminent, and the West should make a preemptive strike. In the 50s he produces a fictitious “missile gap.” To make matters worse, the Russians have thoroughly penetrated the Gehlen Organization with double agents, undermining the very American security that Gehlen was supposed to protect.

1947

Greece — President Truman requests military aid to Greece to support right-wing forces fighting communist rebels. For the rest of the Cold War, Washington and the CIA will back notorious Greek leaders with deplorable human rights records.

Image result for photos of president truman

CIA created — President Truman signs the National Security Act of 1947, creating the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Council. The CIA is accountable to the president through the NSC — there is no democratic or congressional oversight. Its charter allows the CIA to “perform such other functions and duties… as the National Security Council may from time to time direct.” This loophole opens the door to covert action and dirty tricks.

1948

Covert-action wing created — The CIA recreates a covert action wing, innocuously called the Office of Policy Coordination, led by Wall Street lawyer Frank Wisner. According to its secret charter, its responsibilities include “propaganda, economic warfare, preventive direct action, including sabotage, antisabotage, demolition and evacuation procedures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance groups, and support of indigenous anti-communist elements in threatened countries of the free world.”

Italy — The CIA corrupts democratic elections in Italy, where Italian communists threaten to win the elections. The CIA buys votes, broadcasts propaganda, threatens and beats up opposition leaders, and infiltrates and disrupts their organizations. It works — the communists are defeated.

1949

Radio Free Europe — The CIA creates its first major propaganda outlet, Radio Free Europe. Over the next several decades, its broadcasts are so blatantly false that for a time it is considered illegal to publish transcripts of them in the U.S.

Image result for photos of Allan Dulles of the cia

Late 40s

Operation MOCKINGBIRD — The CIA begins recruiting American news organizations and journalists to become spies and disseminators of propaganda. The effort is headed by Frank Wisner, Allan Dulles, Richard Helms and Philip Graham. Graham is publisher of The Washington Post, which becomes a major CIA player. Eventually, the CIA’s media assets will include ABC, NBC, CBS, Time, Newsweek, Associated Press, United Press International, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Copley News Service and more. By the CIA’s own admission, at least 25 organizations and 400 journalists will become CIA assets.

1953

Iran – CIA overthrows the democratically elected Mohammed Mossadegh in a military coup, after he threatened to nationalize British oil. The CIA replaces him with a dictator, the Shah of Iran, whose secret police, SAVAK, is as brutal as the Gestapo.

Operation MK-ULTRA — Inspired by North Korea’s brainwashing program, the CIA begins experiments on mind control. The most notorious part of this project involves giving LSD and other drugs to American subjects without their knowledge or against their will, causing several to commit suicide. However, the operation involves far more than this. Funded in part by the Rockefeller and Ford foundations, research includes propaganda, brainwashing, public relations, advertising, hypnosis, and other forms of suggestion.

1954

Guatemala — CIA overthrows the democratically elected Jacob Arbenz in a military coup. Arbenz has threatened to nationalize the Rockefeller-owned United Fruit Company, in which CIA Director Allen Dulles also owns stock. Arbenz is replaced with a series of right-wing dictators whose bloodthirsty policies will kill over 100,000 Guatemalans in the next 40 years.

1954-1958

North Vietnam — CIA officer Edward Lansdale spends four years trying to overthrow the communist government of North Vietnam, using all the usual dirty tricks. The CIA also attempts to legitimize a tyrannical puppet regime in South Vietnam, headed by Ngo Dinh Diem. These efforts fail to win the hearts and minds of the South Vietnamese because the Diem government is opposed to true democracy, land reform and poverty reduction measures. The CIA’s continuing failure results in escalating American intervention, culminating in the Vietnam War.

1956

Hungary — Radio Free Europe incites Hungary to revolt by broadcasting Khruschev’s Secret Speech, in which he denounced Stalin. It also hints that American aid will help the Hungarians fight. This aid fails to materialize as Hungarians launch a doomed armed revolt, which only invites a major Soviet invasion. The conflict kills 7,000 Soviets and 30,000 Hungarians.

Image result for photos of Pathet Lao group members in laos

1957-1973

Laos — The CIA carries out approximately one coup per year trying to nullify Laos’ democratic elections. The problem is the Pathet Lao, a leftist group with enough popular support to be a member of any coalition government. In the late 50s, the CIA even creates an “Armee Clandestine” of Asian mercenaries to attack the Pathet Lao. After the CIA’s army suffers numerous defeats, the U.S. starts bombing, dropping more bombs on Laos than all the U.S. bombs dropped in World War II. A quarter of all Laotians will eventually become refugees, many living in caves.

1959

Haiti — The U.S. military helps “Papa Doc” Duvalier become dictator of Haiti. He creates his own private police force, the “Tonton Macoutes,” who terrorize the population with machetes. They will kill over 100,000 during the Duvalier family reign. The U.S. does not protest their dismal human rights record.

1961

The Bay of Pigs — The CIA sends 1,500 Cuban exiles to invade Castro’s Cuba. But “Operation Mongoose” fails, due to poor planning, security and backing. The planners had imagined that the invasion will spark a popular uprising against Castro -– which never happens. A promised American air strike also never occurs. This is the CIA’s first public setback, causing President Kennedy to fire CIA Director Allen Dulles.

Image result for photos of allen dulles during the bay of pigs invasion

Dominican Republic — The CIA assassinates Rafael Trujillo, a murderous dictator Washington has supported since 1930. Trujillo’s business interests have grown so large (about 60 percent of the economy) that they have begun competing with American business interests.

Ecuador — The CIA-backed military forces the democratically elected President Jose Velasco to resign. Vice President Carlos Arosemana replaces him; the CIA fills the now vacant vice presidency with its own man.

Congo (Zaire) — The CIA assassinates the democratically elected Patrice Lumumba. However, public support for Lumumba’s politics runs so high that the CIA cannot clearly install his opponents in power. Four years of political turmoil follow.

1963

Dominican Republic — The CIA overthrows the democratically elected Juan Bosch in a military coup. The CIA installs a repressive, right-wing junta.

Image result for photos of juan bosch of the dominican republic

Ecuador — A CIA-backed military coup overthrows President Arosemana, whose independent (not socialist) policies have become unacceptable to Washington. A military junta assumes command, cancels the 1964 elections, and begins abusing human rights.

Image result for photos of  Joao Goulart president of brazil

1964

Brazil — A CIA-backed military coup overthrows the democratically elected government of Joao Goulart. The junta that replaces it will, in the next two decades, become one of the most bloodthirsty in history. General Castelo Branco will create Latin America’s first death squads, or bands of secret police who hunt down “communists” for torture, interrogation and murder. Often these “communists” are no more than Branco’s political opponents. Later it is revealed that the CIA trains the death squads.

1965

Indonesia — The CIA overthrows the democratically elected Sukarno with a military coup. The CIA has been trying to eliminate Sukarno since 1957, using everything from attempted assassination to sexual intrigue, for nothing more than his declaring neutrality in the Cold War. His successor, General Suharto, will massacre between 500,000 to 1 million civilians accused of being “communist.” The CIA supplies the names of countless suspects.

Dominican Republic — A popular rebellion breaks out, promising to reinstall Juan Bosch as the country’s elected leader. The revolution is crushed when U.S. Marines land to uphold the military regime by force. The CIA directs everything behind the scenes.

Image result for photos of  George Papandreous of greece

Greece — With the CIA’s backing, the king removes George Papandreous as prime minister. Papandreous has failed to vigorously support U.S. interests in Greece.

Congo (Zaire) — A CIA-backed military coup installs Mobutu Sese Seko as dictator. The hated and repressive Mobutu exploits his desperately poor country for billions.

1966

The Ramparts Affair — The radical magazine Ramparts begins a series of unprecedented anti-CIA articles. Among their scoops: the CIA has paid the University of Michigan $25 million dollars to hire “professors” to train South Vietnamese students in covert police methods. MIT and other universities have received similar payments. Ramparts also reveals that the National Students’ Association is a CIA front. Students are sometimes recruited through blackmail and bribery, including draft deferments.

1967

Greece — A CIA-backed military coup overthrows the government two days before the elections. The favorite to win was George Papandreous, the liberal candidate. During the next six years, the “reign of the colonels” — backed by the CIA — will usher in the widespread use of torture and murder against political opponents. When a Greek ambassador objects to President Johnson about U.S. plans for Cyprus, Johnson tells him: “Fuck your parliament and your constitution.”

Operation PHEONIX — The CIA helps South Vietnamese agents identify and then murder alleged Viet Cong leaders operating in South Vietnamese villages. According to a 1971 congressional report, this operation killed about 20,000 “Viet Cong.”

1968

Operation CHAOS — The CIA has been illegally spying on American citizens since 1959, but with Operation CHAOS, President Johnson dramatically boosts the effort. CIA agents go undercover as student radicals to spy on and disrupt campus organizations protesting the Vietnam War. They are searching for Russian instigators, which they never find. CHAOS will eventually spy on 7,000 individuals and 1,000 organizations.

Bolivia — A CIA-organized military operation captures legendary guerilla Che Guevara. The CIA wants to keep him alive for interrogation, but the Bolivian government executes him to prevent worldwide calls for clemency.

1969

Uruguay — The notorious CIA torturer Dan Mitrione arrives in Uruguay, a country torn with political strife. Whereas right-wing forces previously used torture only as a last resort, Mitrione convinces them to use it as a routine, widespread practice. “The precise pain, in the precise place, in the precise amount, for the desired effect,” is his motto. The torture techniques he teaches to the death squads rival the Nazis’. He eventually becomes so feared that revolutionaries will kidnap and murder him a year later.

1970

Cambodia — The CIA overthrows Prince Sahounek, who is highly popular among Cambodians for keeping them out of the Vietnam War. He is replaced by CIA puppet Lon Nol, who immediately throws Cambodian troops into battle. This unpopular move strengthens once minor opposition parties like the Khmer Rouge, which achieves power in 1975 and massacres millions of its own people.

1971

Bolivia — After half a decade of CIA-inspired political turmoil, a CIA-backed military coup overthrows the leftist President Juan Torres. In the next two years, dictator Hugo Banzer will have over 2,000 political opponents arrested without trial, then tortured, raped and executed.

Haiti — “Papa Doc” Duvalier dies, leaving his 19-year old son “Baby Doc” Duvalier the dictator of Haiti. His son continues his bloody reign with full knowledge of the CIA.

1972

The Case-Zablocki Act — Congress passes an act requiring congressional review of executive agreements. In theory, this should make CIA operations more accountable. In fact, it is only marginally effective.

Cambodia — Congress votes to cut off CIA funds for its secret war in Cambodia.

Wagergate Break-in — President Nixon sends in a team of burglars to wiretap Democratic offices at Watergate. The team members have extensive CIA histories, including James McCord, E. Howard Hunt and five of the Cuban burglars. They work for the Committee to Reelect the President (CREEP), which does dirty work like disrupting Democratic campaigns and laundering Nixon’s illegal campaign contributions. CREEP’s activities are funded and organized by another CIA front, the Mullen Company.

1973

Chile — The CIA overthrows and assassinates Salvador Allende, Latin America’s first democratically elected socialist leader. The problems begin when Allende nationalizes American-owned firms in Chile. ITT offers the CIA $1 million for a coup (reportedly refused). The CIA replaces Allende with General Augusto Pinochet, who will torture and murder thousands of his own countrymen in a crackdown on labor leaders and the political left.

Image result for photos of salvador allende in 1972

CIA begins internal investigations — William Colby, the Deputy Director for Operations, orders all CIA personnel to report any and all illegal activities they know about. This information is later reported to Congress.

Watergate Scandal — The CIA’s main collaborating newspaper in America, The Washington Post, reports Nixon’s crimes long before any other newspaper takes up the subject. The two reporters, Woodward and Bernstein, make almost no mention of the CIA’s many fingerprints all over the scandal. It is later revealed that Woodward was a Naval intelligence briefer to the White House, and knows many important intelligence figures, including General Alexander Haig. His main source, “Deep Throat,” is probably one of those.

CIA Director Helms Fired — President Nixon fires CIA Director Richard Helms for failing to help cover up the Watergate scandal. Helms and Nixon have always disliked each other. The new CIA director is William Colby, who is relatively more open to CIA reform.

1974

CHAOS exposed — Pulitzer prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh publishes a story about Operation CHAOS, the domestic surveillance and infiltration of anti-war and civil rights groups in the U.S. The story sparks national outrage.

Angleton fired — Congress holds hearings on the illegal domestic spying efforts of James Jesus Angleton, the CIA’s chief of counterintelligence. His efforts included mail-opening campaigns and secret surveillance of war protesters. The hearings result in his dismissal from the CIA.

House clears CIA in Watergate — The House of Representatives clears the CIA of any complicity in Nixon’s Watergate break-in.

The Hughes Ryan Act — Congress passes an amendment requiring the president to report nonintelligence CIA operations to the relevant congressional committees in a timely fashion.

1975

Australia — The CIA helps topple the democratically elected, left-leaning government of Prime Minister Edward Whitlam. The CIA does this by giving an ultimatum to its Governor-General, John Kerr. Kerr, a longtime CIA collaborator, exercises his constitutional right to dissolve the Whitlam government. The Governor-General is a largely ceremonial position appointed by the Queen; the Prime Minister is democratically elected. The use of this archaic and never-used law stuns the nation.

Angola — Eager to demonstrate American military resolve after its defeat in Vietnam, Henry Kissinger launches a CIA-backed war in Angola. Contrary to Kissinger’s assertions, Angola is a country of little strategic importance and not seriously threatened by communism. The CIA backs the brutal leader of UNITAS, Jonas Savimbi. This polarizes Angolan politics and drives his opponents into the arms of Cuba and the Soviet Union for survival. Congress will cut off funds in 1976, but the CIA is able to run the war off the books until 1984, when funding is legalized again. This entirely pointless war kills over 300,000 Angolans.

“The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence” — Victor Marchetti and John Marks publish this whistle-blowing history of CIA crimes and abuses. Marchetti has spent 14 years in the CIA, eventually becoming an executive assistant to the Deputy Director of Intelligence. Marks has spent five years as an intelligence official in the State Department.

“Inside the Company” — Philip Agee publishes a diary of his life inside the CIA. Agee has worked in covert operations in Latin America during the 60s, and details the crimes in which he took part.

Congress investigates CIA wrong-doing — Public outrage compels Congress to hold hearings on CIA crimes. Senator Frank Church heads the Senate investigation (“The Church Committee”), and Representative Otis Pike heads the House investigation. (Despite a 98 percent incumbency reelection rate, both Church and Pike are defeated in the next elections.) The investigations lead to a number of reforms intended to increase the CIA’s accountability to Congress, including the creation of a standing Senate committee on intelligence. However, the reforms prove ineffective, as the Iran/Contra scandal will show. It turns out the CIA can control, deal with or sidestep Congress with ease.

The Rockefeller Commission — In an attempt to reduce the damage done by the Church Committee, President Ford creates the “Rockefeller Commission” to whitewash CIA history and propose toothless reforms. The commission’s namesake, Vice President Nelson Rockefeller, is himself a major CIA figure. Five of the commission’s eight members are also members of the Council on Foreign Relations, a CIA-dominated organization.

1979

Iran — The CIA fails to predict the fall of the Shah of Iran, a longtime CIA puppet, and the rise of Muslim fundamentalists who are furious at the CIA’s backing of SAVAK, the Shah’s bloodthirsty secret police. In revenge, the Muslims take 52 Americans hostage in the U.S. embassy in Tehran.

Afghanistan — The Soviets invade Afghanistan. The CIA immediately begins supplying arms to any faction willing to fight the occupying Soviets. Such indiscriminate arming means that when the Soviets leave Afghanistan, civil war will erupt. Also, fanatical Muslim extremists now possess state-of-the-art weaponry. One of these is Sheik Abdel Rahman, who will become involved in the World Trade Center bombing in New York.

El Salvador — An idealistic group of young military officers, repulsed by the massacre of the poor, overthrows the right-wing government. However, the U.S. compels the inexperienced officers to include many of the old guard in key positions in their new government. Soon, things are back to “normal” — the military government is repressing and killing poor civilian protesters. Many of the young military and civilian reformers, finding themselves powerless, resign in disgust.

Nicaragua — Anastasios Samoza II, the CIA-backed dictator, falls. The Marxist Sandinistas take over government, and they are initially popular because of their commitment to land and anti-poverty reform. Samoza had a murderous and hated personal army called the National Guard. Remnants of the Guard will become the Contras, who fight a CIA-backed guerilla war against the Sandinista government throughout the 1980s.

1980

El Salvador — The Archbishop of San Salvador, Oscar Romero, pleads with President Carter “Christian to Christian” to stop aiding the military government slaughtering his people. Carter refuses. Shortly afterwards, right-wing leader Roberto D’Aubuisson has Romero shot through the heart while saying Mass. The country soon dissolves into civil war, with the peasants in the hills fighting against the military government. The CIA and U.S. Armed Forces supply the government with overwhelming military and intelligence superiority. CIA-trained death squads roam the countryside, committing atrocities like that of El Mazote in 1982, where they massacre between 700 and 1000 men, women and children. By 1992, some 63,000 Salvadorans will be killed.

1981

Iran/Contra Begins — The CIA begins selling arms to Iran at high prices, using the profits to arm the Contras fighting the Sandinista government in Nicaragua. President Reagan vows that the Sandinistas will be “pressured” until “they say ‘uncle.’” The CIA’s Freedom Fighter’s Manual disbursed to the Contras includes instruction on economic sabotage, propaganda, extortion, bribery, blackmail, interrogation, torture, murder and political assassination.

1983

Honduras — The CIA gives Honduran military officers the Human Resource Exploitation Training Manual – 1983, which teaches how to torture people. Honduras’ notorious “Battalion 316” then uses these techniques, with the CIA’s full knowledge, on thousands of leftist dissidents. At least 184 are murdered.

1984

The Boland Amendment — The last of a series of Boland Amendments is passed. These amendments have reduced CIA aid to the Contras; the last one cuts it off completely. However, CIA Director William Casey is already prepared to “hand off” the operation to Colonel Oliver North, who illegally continues supplying the Contras through the CIA’s informal, secret, and self-financing network. This includes “humanitarian aid” donated by Adolph Coors and William Simon, and military aid funded by Iranian arms sales.

1986

Eugene Hasenfus — Nicaragua shoots down a C-123 transport plane carrying military supplies to the Contras. The lone survivor, Eugene Hasenfus, turns out to be a CIA employee, as are the two dead pilots. The airplane belongs to Southern Air Transport, a CIA front. The incident makes a mockery of President Reagan’s claims that the CIA is not illegally arming the Contras.

Iran/Contra Scandal — Although the details have long been known, the Iran/Contra scandal finally captures the media’s attention in 1986. Congress holds hearings, and several key figures (like Oliver North) lie under oath to protect the intelligence community. CIA Director William Casey dies of brain cancer before Congress can question him. All reforms enacted by Congress after the scandal are purely cosmetic.

Haiti — Rising popular revolt in Haiti means that “Baby Doc” Duvalier will remain “President for Life” only if he has a short one. The U.S., which hates instability in a puppet country, flies the despotic Duvalier to the South of France for a comfortable retirement. The CIA then rigs the upcoming elections in favor of another right-wing military strongman. However, violence keeps the country in political turmoil for another four years. The CIA tries to strengthen the military by creating the National Intelligence Service (SIN), which suppresses popular revolt through torture and assassination.

1989

Panama — The U.S. invades Panama to overthrow a dictator of its own making, General Manuel Noriega. Noriega has been on the CIA’s payroll since 1966, and has been transporting drugs with the CIA’s knowledge since 1972. By the late 80s, Noriega’s growing independence and intransigence have angered Washington… so out he goes.

1990

Haiti — Competing against 10 comparatively wealthy candidates, leftist priest Jean-Bertrand Aristide captures 68 percent of the vote. After only eight months in power, however, the CIA-backed military deposes him. More military dictators brutalize the country, as thousands of Haitian refugees escape the turmoil in barely seaworthy boats. As popular opinion calls for Aristide’s return, the CIA begins a disinformation campaign painting the courageous priest as mentally unstable.

1991

The Gulf War — The U.S. liberates Kuwait from Iraq. But Iraq’s dictator, Saddam Hussein, is another creature of the CIA. With U.S. encouragement, Hussein invaded Iran in 1980. During this costly eight-year war, the CIA built up Hussein’s forces with sophisticated arms, intelligence, training and financial backing. This cemented Hussein’s power at home, allowing him to crush the many internal rebellions that erupted from time to time, sometimes with poison gas. It also gave him all the military might he needed to conduct further adventurism — in Kuwait, for example.

The Fall of the Soviet Union — The CIA fails to predict this most important event of the Cold War. This suggests that it has been so busy undermining governments that it hasn’t been doing its primary job: gathering and analyzing information. The fall of the Soviet Union also robs the CIA of its reason for existence: fighting communism. This leads some to accuse the CIA of intentionally failing to predict the downfall of the Soviet Union. Curiously, the intelligence community’s budget is not significantly reduced after the demise of communism.

1992

Economic Espionage — In the years following the end of the Cold War, the CIA is increasingly used for economic espionage. This involves stealing the technological secrets of competing foreign companies and giving them to American ones. Given the CIA’s clear preference for dirty tricks over mere information gathering, the possibility of serious criminal behavior is very great indeed.

1993

Haiti — The chaos in Haiti grows so bad that President Clinton has no choice but to remove the Haitian military dictator, Raoul Cedras, on threat of U.S. invasion. The U.S. occupiers do not arrest Haiti’s military leaders for crimes against humanity, but instead ensure their safety and rich retirements. Aristide is returned to power only after being forced to accept an agenda favorable to the country’s ruling class.

EPILOGUE

In a speech before the CIA celebrating its 50th anniversary, President Clinton said: “By necessity, the American people will never know the full story of your courage.”

Clinton’s is a common defense of the CIA: namely, the American people should stop criticizing the CIA because they don’t know what it really does. This, of course, is the heart of the problem in the first place. An agency that is above criticism is also above moral behavior and reform. Its secrecy and lack of accountability allows its corruption to grow unchecked.

Furthermore, Clinton’s statement is simply untrue. The history of the agency is growing painfully clear, especially with the declassification of historical CIA documents. We may not know the details of specific operations, but we do know, quite well, the general behavior of the CIA. These facts began emerging nearly two decades ago at an ever-quickening pace. Today we have a remarkably accurate and consistent picture, repeated in country after country, and verified from countless different directions.

The CIA’s response to this growing knowledge and criticism follows a typical historical pattern. (Indeed, there are remarkable parallels to the Medieval Church’s fight against the Scientific Revolution.) The first journalists and writers to reveal the CIA’s criminal behavior were harassed and censored if they were American writers, and tortured and murdered if they were foreigners. (See Philip Agee’s On the Run for an example of early harassment.) However, over the last two decades the tide of evidence has become overwhelming, and the CIA has found that it does not have enough fingers to plug every hole in the dike. This is especially true in the age of the Internet, where information flows freely among millions of people. Since censorship is impossible, the Agency must now defend itself with apologetics. Clinton’s “Americans will never know” defense is a prime example.

Another common apologetic is that “the world is filled with unsavory characters, and we must deal with them if we are to protect American interests at all.” There are two things wrong with this. First, it ignores the fact that the CIA has regularly spurned alliances with defenders of democracy, free speech and human rights, preferring the company of military dictators and tyrants. The CIA had moral options available to them, but did not take them.

Second, this argument begs several questions. The first is: “Which American interests?” The CIA has courted right-wing dictators because they allow wealthy Americans to exploit the country’s cheap labor and resources. But poor and middle-class Americans pay the price whenever they fight the wars that stem from CIA actions, from Vietnam to the Gulf War to Panama. The second begged question is: “Why should American interests come at the expense of other peoples’ human rights?”

The CIA should be abolished, its leadership dismissed and its relevant members tried for crimes against humanity. Our intelligence community should be rebuilt from the ground up, with the goal of collecting and analyzing information. As for covert action, there are two moral options. The first one is to eliminate covert action completely. But this gives jitters to people worried about the Adolf Hitlers of the world. So a second option is that we can place covert action under extensive and true democratic oversight. For example, a bipartisan Congressional Committee of 40 members could review and veto all aspects of CIA operations upon a majority or super-majority vote. Which of these two options is best may be the subject of debate, but one thing is clear: like dictatorship, like monarchy, unaccountable covert operations should die like the dinosaurs they are.

Mythbusting China Cold War 2.0: Debt Traps and Bird Flu

| September 12, 2018

This week was Xi Jinping’s big Africa moment, the Forum on China Africa Cooperation or FOCAC. Maybe you didn’t hear about it a lot because the PRC was counterprogramming against the West’s debt trap diplomacy talking point with some success.

And maybe you did hear about China’s plot to kill us all with bird flu.

China’s trying to get traction as the anti-Trump: a responsible, capable force in the world order promoting win-win cooperation, prosperity, and a better, healthier tomorrow.

It isn’t easy with Western government and media continually on the prowl to identify and package anti-PRC talking points.

This week China Watch looks at two stories making the rounds: Zambia falls into China’s debt trap…and…China’s going to destroy the world with bird flu.

To me, both stories don’t quite pass the smell test…but they were winners in the China-bashing sweepstakes.

The Zambia story dissipated the feel good vibes surrounding China’s Africa project, the PRC’s most significant claim to global good citizenship.

The bird flu story fed a “China’s the evil empire/existential threat” narrative.

I argue it is no coincidence that these stories fed into two emerging anti-China strategies: using the IMF as a club against China and China’s allies, and advancing the US strategy to legitimize Taiwan on the global stage via the World Health Organization.

This week: how the China threat sausage is made and marketed. A China Watch exclusive. Because you sure aren’t going to find it anywhere else in the Western media.

Mike Pence Rattles Nazi Skeletons

By Finian Cunningham

September 17, 2018 Information Clearing House   US Vice President Mike Pence may not have meant it, but his recent admonition to Paraguay to respect “historic relationships” between that country, the United States and Israel clumsily provoked sinister memories of the past.

The move followed the decision last week by Mario Abdo Benitez, the newly elected president of the South American state, to reverse an earlier order to relocate Paraguay’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Benitez’ predecessor, Horacio Cortes, had followed the Trump administration’s decision earlier this year in May to move the US embassy to Jerusalem.

Firstly, there is Paraguay’s dark and not-too-distant past of military dictatorship under Alfredo Stroenesser. Under his decades-long rule with an iron-fist, Paraguay gained the moniker of being a “poor man’s Nazi regime”. The comparison was not merely rhetorical.

Stroenesser was notorious for running death squads and torture centers against political opponents. Thousands were disappeared or murdered under his regime (1954-1989). Moreover, the oppression was conducted as part of the US-led Operation Condor program in which the CIA recruited South American dictatorships to eliminate emerging socialist movements. During the 1970s, Stroenesser was a key player in the fascist Operation Condor along with Chile’s Augusto Pinochet and the other US-backed military juntas of Argentina and Brazil.

Paraguay was one of the main South American destinations for Nazi war criminals fleeing justice following the Second World War. The infamous ratlines run out of Europe, from Spain and Italy, were used to spirit top Nazi commanders into hiding on the other side of the Atlantic.

Reinhard Gehlen: The Friendly Enemy

As many as 10,000 Nazi officers were reckoned to have evaded war crimes prosecutions by availing of this route. Some of them were aided in their escape by the newly formed American CIA and its Gehlen Organization run by Hitler’s former spymaster Major General Reinhard Gehlen who was recruited by the Americans to wage clandestine war against the Soviet Union.

==========================================================================

  Lobbying by VP Mike Pence is blatant interference by the US in the internal politics of this South American state.

But so clumsy is Pence in this interference that his bluster about “historic relationships” dredges up a lot of sinister specters from the past with regard to the United States and its involvement with fascist regimes and Nazi war criminals.

Un supervisor de la Patrulla fronteriza de Estados Unidos fue detenido y acusado de ser asesino serial de mujeres en la frontera con México.

Juan David Ortiz de 35 años de edad fue arrestado el sábado en Laredo, Texas, después de que intentara secuestrar a una mujer que logró huir de su auto y pedir ayuda, informaron autoridades.

El alguacil del condado Webb, Martin Cuellar, dijo que el también ex militar enfrenta cargos por el asesinato de cuatro mujeres, en las últimas dos semanas, restricción ilegal, asalto agravado con un arma mortal y evadir el arresto.

El fiscal del condado Isidro Alanís declaro que lo consideran un asesino serial por el asesinato de cuatro mujeres en dos semanas presuntamente se trataba de trabajadoras sexuales. Ortiz trabajo en la patrulla Fronteriza por 10 años.

DIRECTOR INTERINO DEL ICE SE REÚNE CON CONOCIDOS RACISTAS Y LIDERES DE GRUPOS DE ODIO.

El director interino de la Oficina de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas, ICE, Ronald Vitiello, participo recientemente en una reunión de personalidades racista, políticos de ultraderecha y líderes de grupos de odio.

Asi lo denuncio la organización Southern Poverty Law Center, SPLC,  que monitorea las actividades de grupos racistas y de odio en Estados Unidos.

La Federación para una Reforma de la Inmigración Estadounidense, FAIR, que promueve y cabildea a favor de políticas anti migrantes  invitó a su reunión anual en Washington a Vitiello, quien trabajo para la patrulla fronteriza durante más de tres décadas antes de ser nombrado director interino del ICE y espera ser confirmado por el congreso.

El SPLC asegura que “asociarse con grupos de odio parece ser una tendencia entre los directores de ICE de Trump.”

El ex Director Thomas Homan fue premiado hace unos días en Washington  en la conferencia anual de ACT para América,  el  mayor grupo de odio anti musulmán de la nación.

La línea entre el movimiento anti inmigrante y la administración Trump continúa difuminándose, acusó el Southern Law Poverty Center.  Los antiguos empleados de FAIR y otras organizaciones ultra derechistas se han integrado a los niveles más altos del gobierno republicano, concluye.

CORTE DE CONSTITUCIONALIDAD DE GUATEMALA SUSPENDE DECISIÓN DE MORALES DE PROHIBIR ENTRADA AL PAÍS AL JEFE DE LA CICIG.

 La Corte de Constitucionalidad de Guatemala suspendió de forma provisional la decisión del presidente Jimmy Morales de prohibir el ingreso al país a Iván Velázquez, jefe de la Comisión Internacional Contra la Impunidad en Guatemala (CICIG).

La presidenta de la Corte, Dina Ochoa, anuncio que se aceptó un recurso de amparo presentado por el abogado Alejandro Portillo contra la decisión del mandatario de vetar la entrada de Velázquez.

El mes pasado Morales anuncio que no pedirá a la ONU una nueva extensión del mandato del CICIG que junto con la fiscalía guatemalteca ha pedido levantar los fueros del presidente para investigarlo por sospechas de corrupción en su campaña de 2015.

 Las críticas contra el mandatario han escaldo en los últimos días con bloqueos carreteros y movilizaciones exigiendo su renuncia.

MAS DE TRES MILLONES DE EVACUADOS POR PASO DEL TIFON MANGKHUT EN CHINA.

 Más de tres millones de personas fueron evacuadas al sur de China ante la llegada del Tifon Mangkhut al norte del país, considerado uno de los más potentes en la historia.

 Mangkhut tocó tierra en Guangdong, la provincia más poblada de China, el domingo, matando a cuatro personas antes de dirigirse al oeste hacia la vecina provincia de Guangxi a la medianoche.

En su paso por Hong Kong los vientos alcanzaron los 173 kilómetros por hora y ráfagas de hasta 223 kilómetros por hora. El daño material fue extenso especialmente en la costa donde las olas alcanzaron más de tres metros. Mientras en Filipinas se informó que murieron más de 50 personas,

AUMENTO A 25 FALLECIDOS EN COSTA ESTE DE EEUU POR PASO DE FLORENCE.

 En la costa este de Estados Unidos aumentó a 25 las victimas mortales, con 19 fallecidos tan sólo en Carolina del Norte, por el paso del huracán Florence, que se convirtió el lunes en depresión tropical.

 El gobernador del estado, Roy Cooper dijo que la “tormenta épica” sigue siendo un peligro inmediato a medida que los ríos alcanzan niveles de inundación importantes.

   Cooper dijo que “inundaciones y tornados catastróficos siguen reclamando vidas y propiedades” en todo el estado.

 Se calcula que los daños materiales causados por Florence podrían superar los 22 mil millones de dólares, con lo que se convertiría en una de los 10 huracanes más costosos en la historia de Estados Unidos.

 PROFESORA DE CALIFORNIA ACUSA A BRETT KAVANAUGH DE INTENTAR VIOLARLA CUANDO ERAN ESTUDIANTES.

Una académica de California que acusa a Brett Kavanaugh, el juez nominado por Trump a la Corte Suprema de Estados Unidos, de intentar violarla cuando iban en la preparatoria se dijo dispuesta testificar ante el senado.

 La doctora en Psicologia, Christine Blasey Ford, quien decidio hacer publica su identidad despues de mantnerla en reserva,  dijo al Washington Post que a principios de los 80s durante una fiesta, Kavanaugh y un amigo ebrios la empujaron a una recamara.

Asegura que el actual juez ultra conservador la manoseo y la intento desnudar, cuando ella quiso gritar le cubrio la boca y pensó que podría matarla. Ford dijo que pudo escapar cuando el amigo de Kavanaugh y compañero de clase en la Escuela Preparatoria Georgetown, Mark Judge, saltó encima de ellos, y los tres cayeron. Ella dijo que salió corriendo de la habitación,   y luego huyó de la casa. Kavanaugh ha negado la acusación.

La abogada de la profesora declaro CNN que su clienta esta dispuesta a testificar, pero no ha sido llamada por el comité que el jueves deberia votar si confirma la nominación de Kavanaugh.

Ford es profesora en la Universidad de Palo alto y trabaja tambien para la Universidad de Standford.

JUEZ BONADIO ORDENA PRISIÓN PREVENTIVA DE EX PRESIDENTA CRISTINA FERNANDEZ.

 Un juez ordenó el procesamiento y la prisión preventiva de la ex presidenta de Argentina  y actual senadora Cristina Fernández por supuestamente encabezar una trama corrupta que recibía sobornos de empresarios a cambio de la adjudicación de contratos para obras públicas.

El juez federal Claudio Bonadío imputó a Fernández los delitos de “asociación ilícita en calidad de jefa, admisión de dádivas en 22 hechos… y cohecho pasivo en cinco hechos” presuntamente ocurridos entre 2003 y 2015, durante sus dos gobiernos y el de su marido y antecesor Néstor Kirchner. Le impuso un embargo de casi 100 millones de dólares.

Horas antes la ex mandataria denuncio los destrozos causados durante los allanamientos de sus propiedades. Fernández volvió a defender su inocencia.
