The CIA has Attempted to Assassinate 50 Foreign Leaders Including Chavez

The late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez was warned by Fidel Castro to be careful of a very specific attack, namely a quick jab from an infected needle. Such a warning coming from a leader who has reportedly been the target of CIA assassination plots more than 600 times in over 50 years, was sure to be heeded.

Was the illness of Hugo Chavez a completely deniable assassination by the CIA? William Blum spoke with the VOR’s John Robles and discussed this issue and more.

Robles: I’ve read your Anti-Empire report regarding Hugo Chavez. Can you give us your comments on speculation that he was assassinated by the CIA?

Blum: I cannot prove it of course, but I believe he was. It would be totally in keeping with the entire history of the CIA and its attitude towards people like Hugo Chavez.

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.

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.

I also wanted to add that something's never added up

While for the most part, we are all in agreement that cancer is related to unhealthy diets, pharmaceuticals, GMO's, vaccines, and chemtrails, - I've always been "amazed" at how long American politicians and those in power (here in America of all places) tend to live. When was the last time you heard of one getting cancer and dying? Doesn't it strike any here as odd that America is the country most bombarded with what I mentioned yet it only seems to affect the rest of us Americans? At present time, cancer is due to hit 1 out of every 2 Americans. But how many "American" politicians, or those in power, have we heard of being diagnosed with cancer, - ever?

Yet in countries with non-GMO's and raw milk we hear of the following:
"It was a case destined for the X-Files and conspiracy theorists alike, when Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez speculated that the US might have developed a way to weaponize cancer, after several Latin American leaders were diagnosed with the disease. The list includes former Argentine president, Nestor Kirchner (colon cancer) Brazil’s president Dilma Rousseff (lymphoma cancer), her predecessor Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (throat cancer), Chavez (undisclosed), former Cuban president Fidel Castro (stomach cancer) Bolivian president, Evo Morales (nasal cancer) and Paraguayan president Fernando Lugo (lymphoma cancer). What do they have in common besides cancer? All of them are left-wing leaders. Coincidence?"

Only 50?

That seems like an underestimate.


Abe Foxman of ADL admits to plotting against Chavez!!

Start at 34.40 and watch the brief conversation between Abe Foxman of the ADL and Isaac Herzog (Israel's Minister of Anti-Semitism). At 35.50 Abe Foxman admits, when discussing what to do about Venezuelan anti-Semitism, that "this is not for camera, but there are other plans." Herzog tells him "We'll talk about it in a minute". (when the cameras are off)

I heard some dumb CFR bitch let it slip out right on Colbert.

It was back when Colbert actually made some sense, before his man Obama got into office. He had a Latino CFR women that was some attache(???) to Venezuela on. She actually told him that they had tried more than once to kill him, snickering of course.

I always wondered about Aaron Russo too. I always had a feeling that foul play was at hand there as well.

Not to mention

Not to mention the number of plants.

It's come to light Andreas Papandreou, former Greek PM, was CIA a agent.

This is just more prima facie evidence of the unrecorded evidence of the secret World

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

What's another 50 acts of war?

We've committed so many already, what's a few more. When we do this, it's called justice. If someone does it to us, we call it an act of war. Ron Paul's 'Golden Rule of Foreign Policy' is shining brightly right now.

Do you think it seems suspicious?

Chavez seriously ill with cancer, suddenly for first time in 600 years a Pope resigns while in office. Chavez dies and now for the first time ever a Pope from South America elected. A new Pope to compete against the martyred Chavez for the allegiance of the poor. Perhaps a way of driving a wedge between Argentina and Venezuela?

I'm not sure if Chavez was on very good terms with the church, I seem to recall once he referred to it as a "tumor".

Chavez gave heating oil to the U.S. poor.

I didn't see any other country doing that. Chavez is O.K. in my book.


so what! Robin Hood was a thief

Manson gave food and shelter to homeless teen runaways in the U.S.
Jim Jones gave food, utility and rental assistance to poor U.S citizens. John Gotti gave 10% of his blood loot to U.S charities.

I suppose if Obama confiscated every privately owned oil company in the U.S. and gave some of it to the poor in Venezuela or Mexico or Canada or where ever, he'd be "O.K in your book" too? I suspect not.

You don't seriously think his "charity" was motivated from the goodness of his heart and not politically motivated? C'mon!

Have you ever heard of Ragnar Danneskjöld?

Danneskjöld defied the might of the United States Navy and of all the People's Navies of the world to be, as he famously said, "the friend of the friendless."

Sort of like what Chavez did.

Of course it was politically motivated

That's how the world works, we do it all the time. We just don't like it when others do the same, especially with oil.

As for stealing you know very well the oil companies steal from all of us every day of the week. They could not do so without the protection of government.

I know very well. Again, so what!

I'm not the one praising and defending killers and thieves, you guys are. Persons who murder, steal, kidnap, torture, imprison, are NOT "o.k in my book". I don't care if they're an oil baron or a military dictator or a mob boss or a preacher or a dirty hippie living in the desert or Robin Hood, it's wrong; morally reprehensible. Even if that's how the world works and everyone else has become accustomed to it, accepting it as normal (like it's just another day at the office here on planet earth) if not admirable or even heroic. "In my book" it's never acceptable. No amount of good deeds he did in his whole life will ever make up for not one single life that he ordered his special police forces to raid, round-up, torture and execute in the middle of the night. Chavez is not, was not, "o.k.". Chavez is in hell where folks like him belong, and anyone who thinks otherwise can, "in my book", go to hell with him.

Your source?

"No amount of good deeds he did in his whole life will ever make up for not one single life that he ordered his special police forces to raid, round-up, torture and execute in the middle of the night."

Venezuela does have a very high murder rate, I can't recall anyone accusing the military or police there of being guilty of anything like what you describe. I never said Chavez was a good guy, and that is not what was being discussed on this thread.

Wikileaks reported

Wikileaks reported that Chavez tried to help earthquake stricken Haiti with cheap oil, but was overruled by the State Department. The fact that Chavez used oil to exert influence in the region was certainly viewed as a grave threat.

Chavez "viewed as a grave threat."Yup, for oil and for his gold.

Chavez brings home his gold
November 29, 2011 07:00

Ahead of elections, Chavez nationalizes the country's wealth.

Editor's note: This article is part of an ongoing series about the scramble for Latin American gold, which has only intensified amid the global turmoil.

CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez is going for his gold.

The first shipment of more than 200 tons of Venezuelan gold reserves returned to Caracas last Friday, with Chavez supporters dancing in the streets as tanks rolled in with armed soldiers riding on top of pallets of ingots.

Chavez had said that he planned to recall all of the country’s gold reserves — kept in the United States, Europe, Canada and Switzerland — to Venezuela.

Assassinating foreign leaders

is not okay. Our current "overlords" probably think that is a naive view. I think the CIA was established because people in power believe nations are perpetually at war. If it's not a shooting war, they consider economics warfare. It's really statesmen, that are able to embody the difference between perpetual war and creative competition. In what way is the CIA a statesman? If they are answerable only to Congress, in secret session, where are we?

Thank you

I think of/dream of a New World when Amish are actually the new CIA.

It's possible

There was a piece in AlJazeera where it was suggested that Chavez did not complete his chemotherapy last summer and went straight back to the campaign trail instead.

Thanks for a bump my friend.

It seems to me

The US has pretty much given up on Venezuela, Obama really made no attempt to mend fences, although he was probably concerned with how that would play domestically. Greg Palast has a piece suggesting that Keystone is an attempt to cut Venezuela out of the heavy oil market

They (the nwo/elitists) didn't give up on Venezuela...

they were just killing time.

They knew what was coming and just sat back and let it happen.

Kinda like with us, the people and monsanto, fluoride, and chemtrails huh? Just sit back and let it happen... Throw in a few false flags to keep us busy with their sleight of hand, just to keep themselves amused.

Sooner or later, though, Americans will put up a fight. The problem is, by then the enemy will be ourselves.

Sad. Sorry to be so pessimisstic and cynical today. Its just reality setting in.

At what point do Americans push back?

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...

"At what point do Americans push back?"

My guess would be when congressmen can no longer bring pork projects back to their districts, which may not be far off.

The key thing now

for us activists is to expose the barbaric and having a potential to end the life on earth -- plans for the summer war vs. Iran.
