- Media Blackout on CIA Drug Trafficking Accusation in Chile
by http://en.institutomanquehue.org/ , 20 May 2015
The former Interior and Defense minister, Rodrigo Hinzpeter, ignored the evidences displaying the maneuvers and the mainstream media ignored the news.
In January of 2013, the Chilean journalist and director of the PanoramasNews website, Patricio Mery Bell, travelled to Ecuador invited by the chancellor Ricardo Patiño, in order to put forward a serious accusation on the existence of a drug trafficking network with the involvement of high ranking officials of the former government of Sebastian Piñera.
In October of 2012, Fernando Ulloa Castillo, former inspector of the Investigations Police (PDI) accused the then Interior Minister and then Defense Minister, Rodrigo Hinzpeter Kirberg, as well as other high ranks of the PDI of being aware of and intentionally allowing the entrance to Chile of 200 to 300 monthly kilograms of cocaine from Bolivia, in order for it to be sold in the country or send it to Europe and the United States.
According to the information given by Ulloa Castillo, the funds collected from the selling of drugs would have been used in order to finance international undercover operations of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) of the United States, bypassing the need for an authorization from the U.S. Congress. Prominent among those operations would have been the destabilization of the democratic governments of Ecuador and Venezuela. In spite of receiving the respective information on these actions, Hinzpeter Kirberg took no measures regarding the involved. At the same time, the case was blatantly ignored by the Chilean press.
As a conclusion of a lengthy investigative work in the area, Mery Bell concluded that “Chile is the strategic and military base of the CIA for Latin America”, ever since the former socialist president Salvador Allende (1970-1973) was overthrown, and that the South American nation, in which there is “a genuine information blockade” which makes it possible to manipulate its public opinion, “carries out a treason” against the region due to the political espionage it is engaged in.
