Cancer epidemic among Latin American leaders not coincidental – Dr. Barret
I am speaking with Dr. Kevin Barrett, a Doctor in Arabic and Islamic Studies and the Co-founder of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for Truth. He is also the owner of
Robles: Now, you wrote an article shortly after the death of Hugo Chavez and what he called “an epidemic of cancer” among anti-US Latin American leaders. Can you tell us why you are certain his death and those incidences of cancer were not coincidental?
Barret: It really can’t be a coincidence that all of the leading opponents of the US Empire in Latin America suddenly caught cancer at the same time.
Besides Hugo Chavez we have Argentina’s president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, who got cancer symptoms although it may not have been cancer, but these weapons may not cause ordinary cancers anyway. Her husband Nestor had died of a serious heart attack at age 60 in 2010.
Then we had Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff, who caught cancer, Paraguay’s Fernando Lugo, Lula of Brazil and of course retired Cuban leader Fidel Castro, came down with cancer in 2006.
This is really the top 6 or 7 people counting, Nestor Kirchner, that the US empire would want to take out. All of them except him had cancer, and he died of a heart attack, somehow I don’t think that is a coincidence.
And if you look at the US history of meddling in Latin America and all over the world, assassinating leaders, overthrowing governments installing fascist regimes, this is pretty much all in a day’s work.
Additionally we know that the US did try to assassinate Hugo Chavez before. Everybody knows about the coup d’etat attempt in 2002.
What most people don’t know about is that Venezuelan prosecutor Danilo Anderson when was looking into and investigating that coup d’etat was killed in a car bomb in Caracas on November 18th, 2004, and later the prosecutors in Venezuela got a confession out of one of his killers, a man named Giovani Jose Vasquez De Armas. Who is a member of Colombia’s right-wing paramilitary group the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia, that confessed, to the Venezuelan authorities that not only he had been involved in killing Danilo Anderson, and plotting to kill Chavez, but he did that with the help of the CIA and FBI.
So they were trying to kill Hugo Chavez in 2004. Given the track record of the US Empire and this mysterious outbreak of 6 cancers among their top six enemies, I don’t see how anybody could write this off as a coincidence.
Robles: Since when has FBI gone international in assassinations?
Barret: You know, you’d be surprised John, the FBI is a profoundly corrupt agency at the top. There are plenty of honest low-level FBI agents but the FBI at the top is essentially is an appendage of organized crime. It is been like that for a long time.
J. Edgar Hoover was the head of the FBI during its formative many, many decades and was viewed by some as the most powerful man in America. Reason was that he held blackmail and film and photos on all of the most important political leaders in the US, and in other countries in some cases, and of course he was controlled by the actual head of organized crime internationally Meyer Lansky who had similar blackmail photos on Hoover.
So the FBI is profoundly corrupt, and they have worked with other US agencies and non-governmental private assassins in other operations.
So, I don’t have any problem accepting the confession of De Armas that an FBI and a CIA agent were involved at the committee meeting that plotted the killings of Danilo Anderson and Hugo Chavez.
Robles: You’ve mentioned in your article a group of assassins called the Asteroids. Can you tell us a little bit about them and what you know about them?
Barret: Sure, the best single source on the Asteroids is the book “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” by John Perkins. He knew the real hit men. In fact I think he knows 2 or 3 of them personally, and Perkins job when he was an the economic hit man was to travel to countries around the world on behalf of the big banks that own the US government, these are the IMF, the World Bank. He was working for them and I think he had a connection with the National Security Agency as well.
So his job as an economic hit man was to go to these countries, approach the president, have a meeting with the president, sit down and say, “Okay, I’ve got fist-full of hundred dollar bills in this hand, I’ve got a bullet in the other. Which one do you want?”
If the president cooperated, the president would take huge unpayable loans from the IMF and the World Bank, and then that country would drown in debt and go bankrupt and the Banksters would move in and seize control of its resources and its government.
If the president of that country did not cooperate, then the Asteroids would be sent in. The Asteroids are the world’s highest level, highest-paid professional killers. They specialize in causing plane crashes. They are suspect in many, many plane crashes in the United States as well as abroad.
They undoubtedly killed Senator Paul Wellstone in 2002 to prevent him from looking into 9/11 and stopping the Iraq war, and they’ve killed a number of Latin American leaders as well.
So, the Asteroids are the next line of attack on these third world countries, and if they can’t succeed in assassinating the leader if his security is too good, this was the case with Fidel Castro, it was a case with Saddam Hussein, and it was the case in Panama with General Noriega.
Robles: What about Muammar Gaddafi?
Barret: Yeah, Gaddafi is another one, where they had to actually invade the country to get rid of the leader. So, that is the last final option, is to invade with the US forces.
The only reason they didn’t do it to Cuba is that after the missile crisis in 1962 the US signed an agreement with Cuba and with Russia, that it would not invade Cuba.
So, this kind of hamfisted, criminal attempts to take over the world through overthrowing and killing leaders is just business as usual for the US Empire.
Robles: I wrote an article myself about this and I was doing a little bit of research on cancer delivery methods and things like this, and I kept coming up on these CIA programs like MKULTRA, Paperclip and Doctor Cornelius Rhoads etc.
Can you tell us about any CIA programs that you know about involved in the delivery of biological agents or for example cancers?
Barret: The most interesting one is the program described in the book “Dr. Mary’s Monkey” by Edward Haslam. Haslam is a very good thorough researcher and he documents the amazing story of the cancer laboratory in New Orleans that was operating out of a secret US government program and among the people involved in this program researching ways in delivering cancer to enemies was a guy named David Ferrie.
David Ferrie was a defrocked priest, defrocked for his pedophilia, he was also a CIA agent and a pilot who had been involved in trying to overthrow Fidel Castro.
David Ferrie had a huge home laboratory, he was testing ways of delivering cancer, he and the CIA who employed him of course, were planning to use it to go after Castro, Castro’s associates and presumably other non-cooperative leaders, people like Hugo Chavez would one day become.
