CIA's medical assassination of foreign leaders verified



October 29-30, 2012 --
Although the CIA has been known to engage in using non-traditional murder methods against targeted foreign leaders, including the aborted use of an unknown serum on Congolese Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba and unsuccessful poisonings of Cuban leader Fidel Castro, recent revelations have shown that the CIA has successfully carried out "medical assassinations." These include the alteration of prescribed medications to bring about death.

According to the Latin American Herald Tribune, new information provided to Brazilian prosecutors by the family of former Brazilian leftist President Joao Goulart, who was called "Jango" by his supporters, show that the president, who had lived in exile in Uruguay and Argentina since his ouster in a 1964 coup, was poisoned in an operation carried out under the orders of Brazil's dictator, General Ernesto Geisel, with the support of the Uruguayan SID intelligence agency and the Central Intelligence Agency. Brazilian intelligence kept Goulart under constant surveillance in Uruguay. Even the Goulart family's cook in Uruguay turned out to be a Brazilian intelligence agent.

Former Uruguayan intelligence agent Mario Neira Barreiro, who is in prison in Brazil for weapons smuggling, said Jango's heart medication pills were altered in order to have a "contrary effect." Goulart's official cause of death was determined to be a heart attack.

At the time of Goulart's death in December 1976, George H. W. Bush was CIA director and Henry Kissinger was Secretary of State and President Gerald Ford's National Security Adviser. The Uruguayan agent said the assassination operation took place at the hotel in Mercedes, Argentina where Jango was staying and that it was carried out by the CIA, Brazilian secret police, and Uruguayan intelligence.

The original March 1964 coup against Goulart was carried out with the help of the CIA and U.S. Navy. In a template that would be used in 1973 to overthrow Chilean President Salvador Allende, the U.S. Navy stationed ships off the Brazilian coast, including the USS Forrestal aircraft carrier, which was positioned off Rio de Janeiro, to assist the coup plotters. The CIA station at the U.S. embassy in Brasilia assisted the Brazilian coup plotters in an project the U.S. code named "Operation Brother Sam." U.S. ambassador Lincoln Gordon successfully lobbied to Kennedy and Johnson administrations to support the ouster of Goulart. Gordon was assisted by Third Secretary and vice consul Robert B. Bentley in the coup planning. Gordon's minister counselor in Brasilia was John Gordon Mein, who was assassinated in 1968 by Rebel Armed Forces (FAR) guerrillas while serving as U.S. ambassador to Guatemala.

WMR reported on July 21, 2010 the following: "In 2000, the former governor of the Brazilian states of Rio Grande do Sul and Rio de Janeiro, Leonel Brizola alleged that both Goulart and former Brazilian President Juscelino Kubitschek were both victims of Kissinger's Operation Condor. Kubitschek died in a suspicious car accident. Later, a member of Uruguay's intelligence service stated that Goulart was poisoned and Kubitschek killed in a staged car accident near Resende, Brazil on the orders of Brazilian dictator Ernesto Geisel, a close ally of Kissinger and Nixon. Kubitschek and Goulart were reportedly assassinated within five months of one another in 1976."

Our report continued: "Much of the CIA's and Pentagon's current doctrine on Latin America destabilization is found in the declassified CIA manuals for 'PBSuccess,' the operation to overthrow [in 1954, former Guatemalan President Jacobo Arbenz], who, himself died mysteriously in a bathtub in 1971, while in exile in Mexico City. Refined during the Nixon and Reagan administrations by both the CIA and Pentagon Special Operations forces, the manual for assassinations and destabilization includes the use of murder of individuals with blows to the head by blunt or sharp instruments; falls on to hard surfaces from buildings from at least 75 feet; falls from bridges on to hard surfaces but not water, falls into elevator shafts and stair wells; staged automobile accidents -- expanded after 1954 to include airplane crashes; poisoning to induce heart attacks and incurable diseases such as cancer; and, for false flag propaganda purposes, assassinations by rifles, machine guns, handguns, and explosions."

The revelations in Brazil about Goulart may also yield information on the CIA's medical assassination of ousted Indonesian President Sukarno, who died under house arrest in 1970. From WMR October 14, 2009: "Counter Spy from April/May 1979 contains a reference to a CIA agent who was instrumental in setting up a training program for centralized police forces around the world. He was Byron Engle, who trained police in Japan after World War II and, more interestingly, established a police advisory board in Turkey. Engle used the State Department to launder CIA funds for the police training program . . . In 1961, after Joao Goulart, a progressive and pro-unionist, was elected president of Brazil, Engle and his assistant, CIA officer Lauren J. ("Jack") Goin, oversaw the steady stream of CIA and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) official cover agents into Brazil. Goin had worked with Engle in setting up the CIA's police advisory team in Turkey and Goin helped establish a similar CIA training advisory team in Indonesia."

Engle directed the Office of Public Safety (OPS) that operated as a CIA police training operation under the State Department cover of USAID. Engle also established the post-war Japanese National Police Academy. After OPS was discontinued, Engle advised domestic and foreign police agencies and eventually became the director of the National Rifle Association (NRA). Engle's wife, who worked for the American red Cross in Japan, Saipan, and Tinian, was recruited by the CIA to act as a liaison between the CIA and her husband's International Cooperation Agency/Public Safety operation at the State Department. Byron Engle also advised the governments of Laos and Cambodia on setting up their internal security/national police agencies.

Goin had been recruited by the CIA's police training operation from the Pittsburgh and Allegheny Laboratory, where he served as director. Engle and his colleague in Indonesia, "Buck" Fruit, established a close relationship with the Indonesian National Police Commander and Police Minister, General Raden Said Soekanto Tjokroadiatmodjo, who was also the Worshipful Master and later, the Grand Master of the Freemason Lodge of Indonesia. On February 27, 1961, Sukarno banned the Masonic Lodge, earning him the wrath of Soekanto, who would be one of the participants in the 1965 CIA-organized military coup against Sukarno. Joining Engle, Fruit, and Goin as Indonesian police advisers were Robert Brougham, who was recruited from a Borneo Christian missionary operation for whom he served as a bush pilot, and Scotty Caplan, who was a USAID equipment manager in Turkey.

The USAID police advisers were a rought crowd. Jack Ryan, the head of the USAID Public Safety Division (PSD) in Saigon, was shot and killed by one of his own CIA advisers in 1965. The PSD in South Vietnam operated uinder the agehis of the CIA's Civil Operation Revolutionary Development Support (CORDS), also known as Operation PHOENIX.

After his stint in Indonesia, Goin became an adviser to INTERPOL and then he went to Turkey to train that nation's national police in 1958. Engle, the head of the Civil Police Division for ICA/AID frequently joined Goin in Ankara and Istanbul to oversee the program. Goin was assigned to Brazil in 1960. The next year, 1961, the USAID's Central American Assistance Team (CAAT) and South American Assistance Team (SAAT), ostensibly used for police training, were involved in support and training for CIA mercenaries involved in the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba.

In 1963, Engle helped establish the International Police Acdemy (IPA), which trained foreign police officers. At the IPA's first graduation class, Attorney General Robert Kennedy gave the commencement address. Three weeks later, his brother, President John F. Kennedy, was assassinated. Under NSAM-117, President Kennedy assigned responsibility for foreign police operations and training to the State Department, but in reality, it was handled by the CIA. Kennedy specifically did not want to training to fall under the Defense Department and the military. The USAID police training operation ended in 1973.

The 1976 medical assassination of Goulart was carried out by Brazilian secret police agents trained in torture and "wet affairs" by the CIA, and specifically Engle and Goin. Goin established a similar unit in Indonesia. Many Indonesians believe that Sukarno was assassinated in Jakarta in 1970 possibly by having his kidney medication altered. Sukarno was confined to Bogor Palace and his level of medical treatment was dictated by the Suharto regime and his CIA overseers. Sukarno died at the Jakarta Army Hospital on June 21, 1970.

Many Turks believe that President Turgut Ozal and former Prime Minister Bulent Ecevit were assassinated by medical means. Ozal died while in office from a sudden heart attack and his widow later questioned the lack of an autopsy and suggested Ozal's lemonade had been poisoned. Ozal was known to have been opposed to George H. W. Bush's invasion of Iraq in Desert Storm. Ecevit, who was the first to expose the existence of NATO's Gladio "stay-behind" networks in Europe, which included Turkey's own Ergenekon network, died in 2006 after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage. Ecevit died at G├╝lhane Military Hospital in Ankara after being placed into a medically-induced coma.
