03/16/13- Prensa Latina (Habana) - CIA Has Attempted to Assassinate 50 Foreign Leaders Including Chavez
Ottawa, 15 Mar (Prensa Latina) Was the illness of Hugo Chavez a completely
deniable assassination by the CIA? William Blum spoke with the journalist
John Robles for Canadian digital site Global Exchange and discussed this
issue and more.
"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, so there
is a possibility but we don't have the evidence, Blum said.
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,
suddenly, 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.
Blum used to work at the State Department until 1967 when he left because
of his opposition to the Vietnam War, he also work in London with former
CIA officer Phillip Agee.
Global Research pointed out that CIA tried to killed at least 50 head of
state and was successful in less than half of the cases.
