Fishing with Posada Carriles – the continued banality of evil

Adolf Eichmann, left...Luis Posada Carriles, right

“Eichmann’s memory…was certainly not controlled by chronological order, but it was not simply erratic.  It was like a storehouse, filled with human-interest stories of the worst type.  When he thought back to Prague, there emerged the occasion when he was admitted to the presence of the great Heydrich, who showed himself to have a “more human side.”  A few sessions later, he mentioned a trip to Bratislava, in Slovakia, where he happened to be at the time when Heydrich was assassinated.  What he remembered was that he was there as the guest of Sano Mach, Minister of the Interior in the German-established Slovakian puppet government.  (In that strongly anti-Semitic Catholic government, Mach represented the German version of anti-Semitism; he refused to allow exceptions for baptized Jews and he was one of the persons chiefly responsible for the wholesale deportation of Slovak Jewry.)  Eichmann remembered this because it was unusual for him to receive social invitations from members of governments; it was an honor.  Mach, as Eichmann recalled, was a nice easygoing fellow who invited him to bowl with him.  Did he really have no other business in Bratislava in the middle of the war than to go bowling with the Minister of the Interior?  No, absolutely no other business; he remembered it all very well, how they bowled, and how drinks were served just before the news of the attempt on Heydrich’s life arrived.”

And so, in 2010, we arrive at the news that Francisco Chávez Abarca, Luis Posada Carriles errand boy who was arrested in Venezuela in July, has been singing like a canary to Cuban investigators.  According to Chávez Abarca, his boss Posada, the biggest terrorist in the Western Hemisphere, checks in with the CIA before each one of his terrorist “hits” against Cuba, and also enjoyed warm relations with many former rightwing presidents of El Salvador, including Francisco Flores (1999-2004), who used to go fishing with Posada.

Mafia Network Involved in Murder of Venezuelan Prosecutor Danilo Anderson Finds Sanctuary in Miamiespañol

By Jean-Guy Allard

“My brother was a victim of an international plot, involving a number of people who, upon realizing they were being investigated by the Public Ministry, fled the country and are currently being protected by the United States government, “ said Lourdes Suarez Anderson, denouncing the murder of her brother, the Venezuelan prosecutor Danilo Anderson.

In an interview from Caracas, Suarez, also an attorney, indicated that “despite the countless requests that the Attorney General’s office has made to have them brought to Venezuela,” a number of suspects have found refuge and protection in the country that denounces all “sponsors of terrorism” at its convenience.

In fact, with the “disappearance” to the United States of the banking grifter Nelson Mezerhane, one of the main people involved in the crime, there are now around a dozen individuals linked in one way or another with Anderson’s murder who now reside in U.S. territory. Continue reading

Terrorist’s Capture a Warning of Possible Conspiracy Against Venezuelan Government español

Translation: Machetera for Tlaxcala

teleSUR (Caracas) – Venezuela’s lawyer in the Posada Carriles case, José Pertierra, warned that the terrorist recently arrested near the International Maiquetía airport (in the northern state of Vargas), Francisco Chávez Abarca, “is not the person who detonated or placed the bomb,” but the person who recruited killers to carry out the action.  He urged authorities to investigate “who was going to meet with this individual” during his time in Caracas.

Venezuela’s attorney in the extradition case of Luis Posada Carriles, José Pertierra, warned that the presence in this Latin American country of the terrorist Francisco Chávez Abarca, who was arrested this Thursday, could respond to a planned conspiracy against the government of President Hugo Chávez and even an attempt on his life.

“I’m sure that (Chávez Abarca) didn’t come to Venezuela to get some sun on Isla de Margarita.  It’s very probable that he had a hidden, terrorist plan,” Pertierra warned in an exclusive interview with teleSUR. Continue reading
