John Negroponte appointed Director of National Intelligence

//disc.server.com/discussion.cgi?id=149495;article=76268;show_parent=1

When he was ambassador to Honduras, Negroponte was involved in what was arguably an illegal covert quid pro quo connected to the Iran/contra scandal, and he refused to acknowledge significant human rights abuses committed by the pro-US military in Honduras...

Veteran of dirty wars wins lead US spy role :

He is tainted by his time between 1981 and 1985 in Honduras, a country that was being used as a launchpad for the illegal US-backed war waged by the contras against the leftist Sandinista government in Nicaragua. The Honduran military was accused of taking part in torture and extra-judicial killings.

The appointment of John Negroponte to be director of National Intelligence is the latest evidence that President Bush is strengthening his cabinet's capacity to mislead Congress and trample civil liberties. Ray McGovern, 27-year veteran of the CIA, examines the meaning of the Negroponte appointment and the dark trend it confirms.

The nomination by President George Bush of John Negroponte for the new post of director of national intelligence, in charge of overseeing all the burgeoning intelligence operations of the United States, is both obscene and predictable.

John Negroponte was ambassador to Honduras from 1981-1985. As such he supported and carried out a US-sponsored policy of violations to human rights and international law. Among other things he supervised the creation of the El Aguacate air base, where the US trained Nicaraguan Contras during the 1980's. The base was used as a secret detention and torture center, in August 2001 excavations at the base discovered the first of the corpses of the 185 people, including two Americans, who are thought to have been killed and buried at this base.

During his ambassadorship, human rights violations in Honduras became systematic. The infamous Battalion 316, trained by the CIA and Argentine military, kidnaped, tortured and killed hundreds of people. Negroponte knew about these human rights violations and yet continued to collaborate with them, while lying to Congress.

President George W. Bush has nominated Negroponte to be US ambassador before the UN. Human Rights organizations in the US and Latin America have joined their voices in asking the US Senate to not ratify his nomination.

In May 1982, a nun, Sister Laetitia Bordes, who had worked for ten years in El Salvador, went on a fact-finding delegation to Honduras to investigate the whereabouts of thirty Salvadoran nuns and women of faith who fled to Honduras in 1981 after Archbishop Óscar Romero's assassination. Negroponte claimed the embassy knew nothing. However, in a 1996 interview with the Baltimore Sun, Negroponte's predecessor, Jack Binns, said that a group of Salvadorans, among whom were the women Bordes had been looking for, were captured on April 22, 1981, and savagely tortured by the DNI, the Honduran Secret Police, and then later thrown out of helicopters alive. It is unclear when or how Mr. Binns received this information and when it was known at the embassy.

CISPES-LA DENOUNCES APPOINTMENT OF JOHN NEGROPONTE; CALLS FOR VIGOROUS CAMPAIGN TO BLOCK CONFIRMATION

The appointment of career diplomat John Negroponte by President Bush to be the the Director of National Intelligence brings back sad and shocking memories to those who were active in the Central America struggles of the 1980's, while Negroponte was ambassador to Honduras.

The appointment, on live television early Thursday morning, stunned the solidarity and peace movements. Negroponte was linked to human rights abuses in Central America and has been dogged by credible testimony that he ignored the use of torture during the contra war against Nicaragua.

The appointment calls for Senate confirmation and CISPES is suggesting phone calls to the U.S. Senate calling for a no vote on confirmation. The Congressional switchboard is 202-224-3121 and then a request to speak to Sen. Boxer or Sen. Feinstein.

In addition to his work with the Nicaraguan Contra army, Negroponte helped conceal from Congress the murder, kidnapping and torture abuses of a CIA-equipped and trained Honduran military unit, Battalion 3-16. No mention of these human rights abuses ever appeared in State Department Human Rights reports from Honduras. The Baltimore Sun reported that Efrain Diaz Arrivillaga, then a delegate in the Honduran Congress and a voice of dissent, told the Sun that he complained to Negroponte on numerous occasions about the Honduran army's human rights abuses. Rick Chidester, a junior embassy official under Negroponte, reported to the Sun that he was forced to omit an exhaustive gathering of human rights violations from his 1982 State Department report.

Sister Laetitia Bordes went on a fact-finding delegation to Honduras in May, 1982, to investigate the whereabouts of 32 Salvadoran nuns and women of faith who fled to Honduras in 1981 after Archbishop Oscar Romero's assassination. Negroponte claimed the embassy knew nothing, but in 1996, Negroponte's predecessor Jack Binns reported that the women had been captured, tortured and them crammed into helicopters from which they were tossed to their deaths.

"Quite the club ..."
//ctrl.org/boodleboys/qclub.html

Well, now, isn't that quaint, both of the Bush administration's top-guns in the intelligence field, CIA-Director Porter Goss and the new Intelligence Czar John Negroponte were both members of the Fence Club aka Psi Upsilon at Yale. Psi Upsilon was formed as a pact between seven students at Union College in 1833:"We, the undersigned, having determined to form a secret society, and having some conversation on the subject, do now and hereby pledge our sacred honors that we will keep all that has been done and said a most profound secret''

Negroponte and Goss, both 1960 Yale graduates, are shown here in a photo from the Fraternity section of the 1960 Yale Banner, the university yearbook. Yale's Psi Upsilon chapter, the second oldest [Beta] in the country, was founded in 1840. The chapter went out on its own in 1934 naming itself The Fence Club, after Yale's honored gathering spot. The Fence Club then became a local fraternity at Yale and was always featured prominently in the Banner. It was a very prestigious house at Yale and many of its members went on to become members of the Order of Skull and Bones. Prominent Bones members include Henry Stimson, Averell Harriman, and William H. Taft. Son of one the founders of Bones, WH Taft is the only person to have held both the US presidency and Chief Justice-ship of the US Supreme Court. An interesting comment from Psi Upsilon's own history: Our chapters became smaller, restricted to a select elite. Ignoring our roots as an academic literary society, Psi U became more concerned with a person's ancestry than with their friendship.

Porter Goss is also a member of the secret society The Order of Book & Snake. Porter joined the CIA in 1959 while still at Yale, during his initiate year at the Book & Snake Temple. And there is the question posed by investigative reporter Daniel Hopsicker -- Is that Porter Goss sitting next to Barry Seal? [The Biggest Drug Smuggler in U.S.History] ...

In the 1960 Fence Club photo Porter is sitting next to William Henry Trotter Bush aka "Bucky" Bush, baby brother of ex-CIA Director/President George HW. Bush and uncle to current president, George W. Bush. Bucky has taken care of the St. Louis end of the Bush dynasty. He was president of Boatman's National Bank in the 1980s. Bucky is currently -- "chairman and founder of Bush Bush-O’ Donnell Co.. He also has holdings in '...Lord Abbett & Co., with about 8 million shares of Halliburton. Lord Abbett's trustees, who manage billions controlled by this investment firm, include Bush uncle William H. T. Bush. Lord Abbett is also one of Halliburton's top ten mutual fund holders (another 4.7 million shares).' 1 Among some of his other holdings are Right Choice Managed Care, Inc., Cobalt Corp., DT Industries, Inc., Engineered Support Systems, Intrav, Inc., Search Financial Services, Inc., Wellpoint Health Networks, Inc., and Medix Resources, Inc. He is also a trustee of his brother's Presidential Library Foundation."

John Negroponte, Dirty Warrior

Clearly, Bush has no shame. First it was his friend Alberto Gonzales the man who created the legal justification that led to the torture scandal at Abu Ghraib. He was rewarded with an appointment to the post of Attorney General. Then Condoleeza Rice was promoted to Secretary of State. Now he has tapped John Negroponte, currently service as the US 'ambassador' to Iraq, for the newly created position of Director of National Intelligence. In an administration that rewards lies and promotes those who diplomatically turn a blind eye to torture and human rights abuses, Negroponte will fit right in..
