U.S. Kidnaps Venezuelan Diplomat

                                           by Bill White

In a flagrant violation of the norms of international diplomacy, the Department of Justice kidnapped the Venezuelan consul-general to Aruba and brought him to the United States on charges of cocaine trafficking, actions alleged taken retaliation for Venezuela’s support for FARC, a Marxist guerrilla group.

Hugo Caraval, former chief of military intelligence for Venezuela, was kidnapped July 24 and taken to a federal prison in Manhattan to await trial. Venezuela responded by threatening action against Aruba, a tin island 17 miles off the Venezuelan coast. Whether economic sanctions or military action is contemplated is unclear.

Caraval has been sought by U.S. investigators for six years. In 2008, he was blacklisted by the Treasury department for providing weapons and logistics to FASRC, and for helping FARC sell its cocaine to international markets. FARC has been indexed as a terrorist group by the United States and finances its decades-old was to overturn the Colombian state with drugs.

The arrest and allegations are ironic, in that the United States itself spent much of the 1980s and early 1990s providing weapons and logistics to central and South American militant groups, as well as assisting them in selling cocaine. One such agent was Joe Adams, one of the first indictees in Iran-Contra. Who was recruited from the Marine Corps by the CIA and sent to infiltrate the Cuban mafia as a hit man. Adams was later convicted of waging war in Nicaragua without the permission of Congress; in that operation, Adams helped Nicaraguan contra rebels smuggle cocaine into the United States to finance their revolution. Soldiers of the 82nd Airborne Division provided weapons and logistic support to these operations from Honduras.

The evidence against Caraval was mostly provided by Colombia, hardly a disinterested party. Colombia says that Caraval acquitted weapons from Russia and Zionist occupied Palestine including rifles, RPGs, and grenade, and supplied them to FASRC. Venezuela has denied the charges and accused Colombia of forging the documents. Another Venezuelan general, two Venezuelan officials, and another intelligence officer are also charged in the case.

Aruba is technically a possession of the Netherlands and under Dutch law. The abduction violated a 1961 treaty protecting diplomats from arrest.

The arrest also showed the massive overreach of the American government, which refuses to respect the sovereignty of any nation anywhere in the world. Caraval is not accused of selling drugs or weapons in the United States, and FARC has never had the capacity to operate outside a tiny plot of Colonbian jungle. However, the arrogance of the American courts, infused with Zionist and Talmudic legal theory, has led America to claim that it can apply its laws to any of the world’s 7 billion people.

American arrogance is the reason Venezuela has recently agree to accept Russian military bases, in part to protect the country from similar acts of aggression on the part of the United States.

Venezuela’s president, Nicolas Maduro, and his predecessort Hugo Chavez have been targets of world Zionism ever since Venezuela nationalized its oil industry and began to seek independence from the international financial system. A Jewish man, Henrique Capriles-Radansky, leads the Zionist-backed opposition to Maduro.
