WAYNE MADSEN: A Clinton Presidency Will Be A Disaster For The Caribbean

A Clinton presidency would be a disaster for America and the world  

By Wayne Madsen

Based on the destructive policies of Bill and Hillary Clinton towards Haiti and Honduras, both in and out of political office, a Hillary Clinton presidency would be a disaster for the Caribbean Basin. 

Kiss of Death:  Clinton with Haitian President
Michel Joseph Martelly
The Clintons’ use of poverty- and earthquake disaster-ridden Haiti as a personal cash cow stands as one of the most egregious examples in recent history of American politicians using the misery of others to line their own pockets. After helping Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide regain power after a 1991 military coup, sanctioned by the Central Intelligence Agency, ousted him, the Clintons have done everything possible to ensure that Aristide and his progressive populist political party have not been returned to power. The reason why the Clintons have suppressed the will of the Haitian people is chiefly based on Arkansas crony capitalism. 

The US Agency for International Development (USAID), the infamous cipher for CIA covert activities, and members of the Arkansas Rice Growers Association (ARGA), who are political cronies of the Clintons, have wreaked havoc on Haiti’s once thriving rice growing business. 

Once a net exporter of highly-nutritional rice, a combination of USAID policies and one-sided Clinton-era trade deals destroyed the Haitian rice industry and made the country dependent on expensive and non-nutritional genetically-engineered bleached white rice from Arkansas agri-businesses. These agri-businesses have contributed generously to the political campaign coffers of both Bill and Hillary Clinton. In 2008, the soaring price of rice worldwide and price-fixing by US agri-businesses linked to the Clintons resulted in food riots breaking out in Haiti.

It is now well-known from public disclosures of Mrs. Clinton’s and other emails that the William J. Clinton Foundation is a criminal "pay-to-play" extortion racket. In 2010, no sooner had Hillary Clinton turned her plane around on a trip to Australia and New Zealand to head back to Washington to deal with the Haiti situation, her husband launched the following high-tech appeal on the web site of his William J. Clinton Foundation: "Text ‘HAITI’ to ‘20222’ and $10 will be given to the Clinton Foundation’s Haiti Relief Fund, charged to your cell phone bill." Clinton also solicited for donations of up to $1000 for the Clinton Foundation’s Haiti Relief Fund. 

Bill Clinton already had too much influence over Haiti’s affairs. Little of the donations to the Clinton coffers ever made it to Haiti’s most needy people, most of whom had lost their homes and possessions in the devastating Haitian quake.

Clinton with former Haitian President Aristide

In 2009, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon appointed Mr. Clinton as the UN’s Special Envoy for Haiti. For Haiti, the decision was akin to the fox being put in charge of the hen house.

Hillary Clinton’s contemptible support for the 2009 military coup that ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya is also another reason why the Caribbean Basin should be apoplectic about a Hillary Clinton presidency. Not only did Mrs. Clinton, as Secretary of State, support Zelaya’s military ouster, but she gave tacit support for the subsequent coup-installed right-wing governments consisting of CIA death squad veterans from the 1980s.

After his ouster, Zelaya, with the support of other Latin American leaders, attempted to return to Honduras to reclaim his presidency from the right-wing coup leaders. Mrs. Clinton, ensconced at the State Department, was fully aware from National Security Agency intercepts that Honduran army troops were under orders to assassinate the exiled legitimate President of Honduras Manuel Zelaya and Nicaragua’s Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann, the President of the UN General Assembly, if their plane managed to land at Tegucigalpa airport. The plane carrying Zelaya and d’Escoto was diverted to Nicaragua but Clinton’s State Department "ordered" Zelaya to return to Washington to enter into "negotiations" with the US-dominated Organization of American States (OAS).

Zelaya: One of Clinton's victims

Mrs. Clinton was also well aware that the Honduran military, with the knowledge of US military and Israeli security advisers, planned to assassinate three Latin American presidents traveling in a second airplane accompanying Zelaya and d’Escoto to Tegucigalpa in a show of support for Zelaya. The three Latin American presidents targeted for assassination at Tegucigalpa airport were Argentina’s Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa, and Paraguay’s Fernando Lugo. The plane carrying the three presidents was diverted to El Salvador after the threat was received from the Honduran junta. Mrs. Clinton presided over the removal of Lugo from office in a CIA-orchestrated "constitutional coup," similar to that which later removed Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff from office.

The Clintons have always carried the CIA’s water when it came to the Caribbean. Since its inception in 1947, the CIA has treated the Caribbean as America’s "private lake." The CIA always saw the "Caribbean Left" as a bĂȘte noire for American foreign policy that had to be stamped out, preferably before ever achieving power. When the Caribbean Left did enjoy success, the CIA engaged in subterfuge and political assassinations, particularly in the English-speaking Caribbean countries of Grenada, Jamaica, Dominica, and Guyana.

Mrs. Clinton’s blueprint for dealing with progressive governments in Haiti and Honduras was spelled out in a CIA report, issued during the directorship of William Casey, in November 1985, at the height of the Iran-contra scandal of the Ronald Reagan administration. Titled, "The Caribbean Left: New Tactics for Old Problems," the now-declassified Secret report warned that Caribbean leftists were shifting their approach from armed action, foolishly and falsely suggesting that this was the preferred method of pro-independence movements in the French Caribbean, to one of "winning power through the electoral system." 

The secret report also justified CIA intervention in the region due to Libya’s "cultivation a broad range of contacts among Caribbean leftists." The charge of Libya posing a threat to Caribbean security was as laughable as the Clintons’ later charge that Aristide posed a threat to Haitian democracy. Such fallacious arguments clearly bear the watermark of the CIA and the Clintons have never wavered in their support for such baseless propaganda from the disinformation "boiler rooms" in Langley, Virginia.

The CIA has always maintained a "hit list" of Caribbean leaders it preferred to see removed one way or the other. In 1985, the hit list included Forbes Burnham of Guyana, Desi Bouterse of Suriname, Michael Manley of Jamaica, and Roosevelt "Rosie" Douglas, later elected prime minister of Dominica. Another leftist on the CIA’s hit list, Maurice Bishop of Grenada, was executed during the 1983 coup that was followed by the US military invasion of Grenada. Douglas and Burnham later died under highly suspicious medical circumstances.

Today’s Caribbean hit list includes, once again, Suriname’s Desi Bouterse, who has weathered repeated US attempts to oust him and have even included the arrest and incarceration of his son by the United States on trumped up charges, invented by Israeli interests in America, that he was involved in the arms and drug smuggling business with Lebanese Hezbollah. 

Others on today’s hit list include Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro, who is experiencing an unprecedented US economic war against his country, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines’ Ralph Gonsalves.

In 1985, the CIA recognized that progressive parties and leaders had opted for the ballot box to achieve political power. And since 1985 and encouraged by the Clintons, the power of the ballot box has been overturned by the CIA and its ciphers USAID and George Soros’s Open Society Institute, using undemocratic election tactics in Haiti, Honduras, Venezuela, Panama, Guatemala, and Guyana. The Clintons can surround themselves with all the black and brown supporters they can muster up in the United States, but for the black and brown people of the Caribbean, the Clintons represent pure corruption, coercion, and neglect.

Thousands Of Saudi - Backed Terrorists Ready To Enter Syria Via Border With Jordan

Saudi apostate head-choppers fantasise Obama will come to their rescue when Iran and Syria overrun and destroy their despotic regime  


Saudi intelligence officers have been training at least 7,000 anti-Syria fighters in Jordan’s territories and plan to dispatch them to the war-hit country via its Southern borders to distract the army from the war in Aleppo, Arab media disclosed.

“Over 7,000 men have been trained in a Saudi-established military camp in Jordan near the border with Syria’s Dara’a province, and now they are ready to be dispatched to join other terrorists’ battle against the Syrian government and army,” the Lebanese al-Manar reported.

“There are several British and western military trainers and advisors in the Saudi-established camp. The western officers are to accompany the fighters in their war against the Syrian government,” the paper said.

Jordan hosts a large refugee camp near the border with Syria.

Other sources also disclosed that the US officers have been involved in training of terrorists in Jordan to fight against Syrian government.

War analysts believe that the move is aimed at diversion to distract the army and its allies from the war in Aleppo in the North where pro-government troops have started massive offensive to take back the country’s second largest city from the terrorists.

Meantime, earlier today armed opposition groups in Southern Syria declared that thousands of militants are ready to reconcile with the Damascus government.

A provincial council affiliated to the militant groups in a statement admitted that 25,000 militants are looking for reconciliation with the Syrian government forces in Southern Syria, al-Mayadeen TV channel reported on Saturday.

The statement by the ‘Council for Men of Knowledge in the Levant’ has accused the terrorist commanders willing to compromise with the Syrian army of treason.

It has given the militant commanders in Southern Syria three days to withdraw from al-Mouk Operations Room (which operates under the Saudi, Qatari, the US and Jordanian spy agencies), the television added.

The Al-Mouk Operations Room has been accused of corruption, similar reports in a number of other Arab media have cited the financial corruption of the Operations Room members as a main cause of the militants complaint and their decision to surrender to the Syrian army.

Early in August, around 1,000 rebels laid down their arms and turned themselves in to the Syrian officials in the province of Dara’a amid the terrorist groups’ threats against those who surrender to the government.

In February, the Syrian Army dispatched more soldiers to the country’s Southern provinces to be deployed at the border with Jordan to defend the country against the possible aggression of the Saudi Army.

“A large convoy of reinforcements from the Syrian capital of Damascus arrived to the 5th Armored Division headquarters of the Syrian army in the town of Izra in the Northern part of Dara’a province and the Eastern part of Sheikh Meskeen,” the sources said.

“The Saudi Army has been conducting a number of military drills in the Kingdom of Jordan in recent weeks, raising the alert level of a possible war in the Dara’a province,” the sources said, adding, “So far, nothing has come of these Saudi military drills and it is very unlikely that they will attempt to enter Syria.”

Killing Russians: Ex-CIA Chief Clarifies U.S. Duplicity

Brennan and Morell will be seated in the dock at The Hague alongside Obama, his White House criminals and the CNN frauds and warmongering shills that lied America into Syria and Iraq    

By Finian Cunningham

In a twisted sort of way, we should thank Michael J Morell, the former CIA deputy director. 

At last, we have official clarity on what has up to now been a US policy of deception over its criminal, covert involvement in Syria’s conflict. He says US policy should be to kill Russian military personnel. No qualms, no quibbles. Kill them.

Morell made his macabre recommendation during an interview on CBS last week. Nearly six years of Western-backed death and destruction in Syria for regime change, and yet Washington somehow has gotten away with maintaining that it is "fighting terrorism" in the Arab country.

And to think, too, Morell’s candid admission of US criminality was fittingly broadcast on prime-time American TV.

That there wasn’t an immediate furor among the Western media and public over Morell’s Murder Inc. machinations just goes to show how debased Western moral and legal standards have become. Probably due to inurement from decades of barbarity and lawlessness of Western governments waging criminal wars in the Middle East, Central Asia, North Africa and Latin America.

We can be sure that Morell was not primarily doing it for the benefit of public disclosure when he told Charlie Rose on CBS that US policy in Syria should be henceforth to assassinate Russian and Iranian forces. 

Rather, it seems more likely that the ex-CIA chief was pitching for a cabinet job in a Clinton administration, if she is elected in the November presidential ballot. Morell’s ambition for reward seemed to impair his judgment, and so the CIA’s former top spook was trying his best to sound all macho.

Only days before his CBS interview, Morell had authored an obsequious oped in the New York Times extolling Hillary Clinton as the best qualified candidate to be commander in chief. He also endorsed her stated desire for more aggressive American intervention in Syria’s war.

Morell’s macho performance on CBS calling for Russia and Iran to "pay a price" for their intervention in Syria had the obvious purpose of advertising his application for a Clinton appointment.

New York Times, CBS, CNN and the other MSM frauds and Obama warmongers will find themselves seated in the dock at The Hague War Crimes Tribunal alongside Morell, Brennan, Clinton and Kerry

But beyond his squalid self-serving motivations, Morell unwittingly performed a service to public disclosure on what US involvement in Syria is all about.

His candid comments can only have one conclusion. The US is prepared to openly side with terrorists in Syria by arming and directing militants to kill Russians. In short, the US is on the side of the terrorists.

For many observers of the Syrian conflict this is not a revelation. Since the onset of the conflict in March 2011, informed observers have known that the US and its NATO and regional allies have infiltrated mercenary groups into the country in a covert war for regime change against President Bashar al-Assad and his government.

The handiwork of Obama's "moderate Syrian rebels"

Despite Western fictive narratives about the anti-government militants being competitively divided between "moderate rebels" and "extremists," it is understood that Washington and its allies have been waging their covert war by secretly and indiscriminately supporting the full gamut of illegally armed groups, or terrorists.

Washington has covered its terrorist connections with a seeming "war on terror" by declaring a mission to defeat such internationally proscribed groups as Jabhat al-Nusra (renamed Fatah al-Sham) and Islamic State. So, while Washington claims that it is supporting "moderate rebels" against the Assad government it is also flying warplanes to apparently strike the "terrorists." But those strikes beginning in September 2014 evidently had little damaging impact on the supposed terror targets.

However, the intended effect was that Washington’s dual policy provided a convenient cover. It allowed the US government to claim that it was fighting terrorists, and therefore deny any covert connection with such groups, while also seeming to be on the side of "legitimate" rebels.

Putin and the RFAF put a swift and decisive end to CIA airdrops of weapons and supplies to CIA/ISIS

For the people of Syria, this Western dichotomy of moderates and terrorists is a risible fabrication. The anti-government forces are dominated by extremists who profess a death cult ideology. Even the so-called Free Syrian Army championed by Western governments is fully integrated with the death-cult mercenaries, chopping heads off their victims, including young children.

The charade began to collapse dramatically when Russian forces were ordered into Syria by President Vladimir Putin last October. In support of the sovereign Syrian state and its Syrian Arab Army, Russia’s military has completely overturned the five-year war. 

American political and military leaders may recently proclaim heavy losses for the extremists in Syria – as if they had something to do with that – but the fact is that it was Russian forces that have created the present situation in which the various terror brigades are facing ultimate defeat.

The battle for Aleppo led by the Syrian army and Russian allies has exposed the vile truth about the nature of the conflict. 

The anti-government militias are corned in the northern city, and quite possibly facing their last stand. In this showdown, there are no "moderates" to be seen. The terrorist composition of the Western-backed "rebels" is fully, irrefutably, on display.

Tellingly, as the Syrian and Russian forces tighten the noose on the terrorist brigades holed up in eastern Aleppo, the Western media convey reports from the "rebel" side of alleged atrocities. Notably, CNN, BBC and France 24 broadcast video footage apparently supplied by "rebels." Rarely, if ever, do the Western media report from the Syrian government’s side.

At last, by doing so, the Western media are revealing their true stripes. They are reporting from the hold-outs of terror groups, the main one in Aleppo being Jabhat al-Nusra (Fatah al-Sham). It is a remarkable – if perhaps inadvertent – admission of where Western allegiances are embedded in the Syrian conflict.

The CNN/MSM warmongering frauds and Obama shills will pay a high price indeed for their collusion and being accessories to CIA high treason and mass-murder

Michael Morell’s call for the assassination of Russian forces is another landmark disclosure of Western policy. Apart from grave legal issues of countenancing war crimes, Morell is plainly saying: US-backed terrorists are being defeated and we have to do something drastic about that by rearming them and directing them to murder Russian servicemen.

Only a few weeks ago, US Secretary of State John Kerry went to Moscow ostensibly with a proposal to Putin from President Obama for American and Russian forces to form a joint anti-terror combat front in Syria. This is after months of the Americans refusing to share information with Russia on terrorist locations, or even helping in clarifying which groups Washington considers terrorist and which it considers "moderates."

Kerry’s "offer" was only a ruse to inveigle Moscow to betray its Syrian ally. Moscow wasn’t buying the stupid American duplicity. And Moscow’s skepticism is vindicated.

Ex-CIA chief Michael Morell is now, in effect, giving the long overdue clarification. Washington is on the side of the terrorists in Syria. It is so displeased with the strategic defeat that Russia has inflicted on the Americans’ regime-change terror assets that Washington is contemplating taking the war to Russia.

For observers wearied by the American deception and duplicity in Syria over the past five years, Morell’s explicit endorsement of Washington-sanctioned murder is a welcome confirmation.

The disclosure is particularly apt. Morell served in the CIA from 2010-2013 and worked closely with Hillary Clinton on Syria policy when she was Secretary of State. His recent public support of state-sanctioned terrorism is therefore nothing more than covert American business-as-usual.

Syria and Russia need to wipe out the terrorist remnants in Aleppo in the next three months. Because if Clinton becomes president, with Murder Inc. people like Morell in her cabinet, the Syrian conflict may very well escalate into an all-out war with Russia.
