INTELLIGENCE CZAR RESUME: TORTURE, TERROR, ILLICIT ARMS

Bush’s new nominee for national intelligence director has a background in human rights and Geneva Convention violations with respect to torture and renditions just like the new attorney general Alberto Gonzales and the new Homeland Security director Michael Chertoff:

“John Negroponte was ambassador to Honduras from 1981-1985. As such he supported and carried out a US-sponsored policy of violations to human rights and international law. Among other things he supervised the creation of the El Aguacate air base, where the US trained Nicaraguan Contras during the 1980's. The base was used as a secret detention and torture center, in August 2001 excavations at the base discovered the first of the corpses of the 185 people, including two Americans, who are thought to have been killed and buried at this base.”

“During his ambassadorship, human rights violations in Honduras became systematic. The infamous Battalion 316, trained by the CIA and Argentine military, kidnaped, tortured and killed hundreds of people. Negroponte knew about these human rights violations and yet continued to collaborate with them, while lying to Congress."

There is even more about Negroponte's role in Iran/Contra and in Honduras and Nicaragua sourced in further discussion below.

Like HW Bush, GW Bush and Porter Goss, the new CIA director, Negroponte is a Yale man. I wonder if he was a member of “Skull and Bones” at Yale? One thing for sure, Negroponte has always been a Bush man.

The son of a Greek shipping magnate, Negroponte would know another shipping magnate, the arms trafficker, drug smuggler and money launderer, Adnan Khashoggi (see SIDEBAR below) who was directly involved in Iran Contra with Negroponte.

Khashoggi and Negroponte were also “knowledgeable”of the arms dealing, drug trafficking and money laundering activities related to the 9-11 attacks as described by FBI translator and whistleblower Sibel Edmonds:

“Negroponte, the son of a Greek-American shipping magnate, was born in London in 1939, graduated from Yale, and entered the Foreign Service in 1960. From 1971 to 1973, Negroponte was the officer-in-charge for Vietnam at the National Security Council (NSC) under Henry Kissinger. In 1987, during the administration of George Bush the elder, Negroponte returned to the NSC to work under Colin Powell as deputy assistant to the president for national security affairs. Within two years, he was back in Latin America; Bush appointed Negroponte ambassador to Mexico, where he served from July 1989 to September 1993. There, he officiated at the block-long, fortified embassy and directed, among other things, U.S. intelligence services to assist the war against the Zapatista rebels of Chiapas.”

“But it was during his tour as ambassador to Honduras that Negroponte earned his reputation for being soft on human rights abuses. From 1981 to 1985, Negroponte was U.S. ambassador to Honduras, where he helped prosecute the contra war against Nicaragua and helped strengthen the military dictatorship in Honduras.”

Yet, according to a four-part series in the Baltimore Sun, in 1982 alone the Honduran press ran 318 stories of murders and kidnappings by the Honduran military. In a 1995 series, Sun reporters Gary Cohn and Ginger Thompson detailed the activities of a secret CIA-trained Honduran army unit, Battalion 316, that used "shock and suffocation devices in interrogations. Prisoners often were kept naked and, when no longer useful, killed and buried in unmarked graves."

“In a 1997 roundtable gathering at the Center for International Policy, Sun reporter Cohn noted that Negroponte was central to the human rights violations." Said Cohn, "He was ambassador when the worst of the abuses were taking place. He knew everything that was going on." "Not exactly the moral sensibility you want in a UN ambassador," notes New Republic's Wildman.

“Even today, Negroponte is unrepentant, arguing that, given the political realities, his hands were tied. As he told CNN, "Some of these regimes, to the outside observer, may not have been as savory as Americans would have liked; they may have been dictators, or likely to [become] dictators, when you would have been wanting to support democracy in the area. But with the turmoil that [was there], it was perhaps not possible to do that."

The quote in the paragraph above by Negroponte reveals that Negroponte was likely chosen because he has the exact mentality and philosophy of Presidents HW and GW Bush. As pointed out in my article FBI and DOJ Connivance Interconnect Terror Attacks dated 8/15/02, President GHW Bush publicly advocated suspension of the US Constitution and violation of laws by CIA and FBI agents inside the US to allow domestic spying on Americans. This is what President GW Bush and his appointees to the Attorney General (Gonzales), CIA (Goss), Homeland Security (Chertoff) and now Intelligence Czar, Mr. Negroponte have in mind when they take actions to take American freedoms and privacy for a false promise of security. Like GW Bush, their past track records on torture and arms and drug trafficking and money laundering with known AlQaeda terror backers are proof enough.

SIDEBAR:

Adnan Khashoggi is the arms dealer and money launderer used by the Bushes for decades including in 9-11, Iran/Contra and in the BCCI mess with Saudi AlQaeda terror backer and Bush business associate Khalid Mahfouz (ran Dallas based InfoCom and Holyland Foundation for AlQaeda and Bush- attorneys at Akin and Gump). Mueller, the director of FBI covered up BCCI for the Bushes when Mueller was at DOJ. Mueller, Goss, Chertoff, Gonzales and now Negroponte will continue to squelch Sibel Edmonds attempts to expose all of this because they do not want the BCCI, Bush, Khalid Mahfouz, Holy Land, InfoCom and Khashoggi connections to 9-11 to be revealed.

Patrick Briley is a Navy Viet Nam era veteran who served on a Polaris ballistic missile nuclear submarine patrol in the Pacific." My Polaris submarine patrol in the Pacific was in far East Asia near China but I can not elaborate any more than that other than to say it was a very special, historically significant and exceptionally dangerous.

Briley was chosen to work under Admiral Rickover at Naval Reactors. He volunteered for Naval service from 1968 to 1976 during the Viet Nam era including being in Naval ROTC, a batallion commander of my ROTC unit and a Midshipman on board the ballistic missile submarine, SSBN 624, the Woodrow Wilson, as well as serving at Naval Reactors in DC for Admiral Rickover.

Patrick started research and investigation into terrorist attacks after the Oklahoma City bombing. Pat submitted his findings concerning the OKC bombing and the 9-11 attacks in briefings to high-level staff for the Senate Judiciary and Senate and House Intelligence committees, House Speaker Dennis Hastert, and the 9-11 Commission.
