Haiti & the Four Stooges
By Jim Kirwan
The four creatures are George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George Bush Jr. and Obamanation, who was just admitted to this elite club of war-criminals. Together their human-rights record in times of Disasters, whether natural or man-made, literally boggles the mind of anyone that thinks the United States Government is ever "here to help."
Hurricane Andrew and its aftermath is one of the most volatile examples of the difference between government spin and on the ground reality in time of need, that the world has seen from these four war-criminals. More than twice as many people died in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew, in 1992, as were murdered in the attacks of 911, yet the public knows virtually nothing about these crimes at all. And to this day the events surrounding Hurricane Andrew in South Florida remain sealed under national security protections.
"The largest natural disaster ever recorded in the history of the United States was hurricane Andrew, which struck South Dade County, Florida, as midnight turned the clock into August 24, 1992. Contrary to what the American news media broadcast across the United States and throughout Europe, the first outer wall of the hurricane unexpectedly slammed intoSouth Dade, packing 214+ mph winds which quickly escalated to 350+ mph. Most of the 414,151 residents living in the danger zone were asleep when the outer wall struck. Thousands of them lost their lives, for no one in South Dade had been evacuated or even advised to evacuate. Instead, residents had been repeatedly informed by local news media that South Dadeshould expect to experience "50 mph winds".
By 11.00 am the following morning, 8,230 mobile homes along with 9,140 apartments had vanished off the face of the Earth. The Hiroshima-like horror was beyond catastrophic. Entire families perished in ways too horrifying to describe. The stench of death had already begun to saturate miles and miles of the massive devastation; the hot humid air was reeking with foul, rotting flesh.
How do I know? Because I was in the midst of it all.
The survivors of hurricane Andrew and the rest of the American people were betrayed by their own government. But the betrayal also extended to foreign nationals. At the time Andrew struck, South Dade was inhabited by a large population of Mexican illegal immigrants. The United States Department of Immigration was fully aware of their presence but quietly turned its back on the situation, knowing full well that South Dade farmers couldn't afford to harvest their crops without the help of the Mexican illegals. The heavily populated migrant camps were situated at the edge of the Florida Everglades. The people who lived there vanished without a trace during that fated night. Many bodies were found way out in the Everglades.
When I lectured at the Clearwater Convention in Florida in 1999, a man in the audience stood up and introduced himself as Chief Petty Officer Roy Howard. He proceeded to address the audience with this exact statement, which is now a matter of public record:
Just for your information, I was called up to active duty after hurricane Andrew went through South Dade County. I spent nine weeks down there. Now I will certify for the benefit of our audience here that the death figures that were officially published are totally inaccurate. According to the information which I received from my own sources within the National Guard, the figure I was quoted when I was down there was 5,280-something. And they were quietly disposed of in incinerators that were hurriedly put together by both the National Guard and FEMA...
As the Chief Petty Officer stated, "5,280-something" bodies were confiscated by the United States National Guard. In addition to this, the Coast Guard independently confiscated "1,500 bodies" from the lakes and surrounding waters. Neither one of these figures embraces the number of dead bodies confiscated by other branches of federal and state government directly involved in the body pick-up operation. This leaves the number of dead confiscated by various US authorities inSouth Dade still unknown.
The total number who died during hurricane Andrew is obviously staggering, yet whenever the "official death toll" is mentioned in the media, a figure of anywhere between 15 and 59 is quoted. The population of the 21 communities annihilated by Andrew's eye-wall had been officially recorded by the Dade County Census Bureau as 415,151 before Andrew struck. Bodies of human beings confiscated and disposed-of like rubbish, as if their lives had no more worth or meaning than a piece of discarded litter--it's horrifying to be suddenly confronted by the same kind of atrocities as perpetrated by the Nazis. Once again repeating history, a master-minded cover-up was dutifully carried out by armed military forces, right smack in the midst of horrendous human suffering.
When Hurricane Andrew slammed into South Dade, the State Attorney of Florida was none other than Janet Reno. Her office was located at the Dade County Court House in the City of Miami. The President of the United States was President George H.W. Bush, and the Vice-President was Dan Quayle. Bill Clinton was running for President, and Al Gore for Vice-President. Senator Bob Graham held office, and the late Lawton Chiles was Governor of Florida. His successor turned out to be Jeb Bush, still the Governor of Florida and, ironically enough, the son of former President Bush whose other son, George W. Bush, the then Governor of Texas, has since become the "self-selected" President of the United States..." (1)
Andrew happened on the watch of GWH Bush with Clinton in the wings (Slick-Willie oversaw the cover-up). George Bush Junior gave us Katrina, Houston, Galveston, and numerous catastrophic fire storms plus devastating floods. Yet FEMA's record in response to all of this is not just abysmal, it is criminally negligent on all counts, and the whole world knows it: yet nothing is done.
Today Obamanation, the war-president of this Police-state, has announced that he is bringing in George W. Bush (junior) and Bill (hands off every real human rights problem) Clinton, to assist in organizing the relief for Haiti! Wow ­ apparently not enough people have died yet in Haiti to satisfy these blood-thirsty colonial servants to their puppet-masters; so in the interests of saving political-face instead of human lives: Obama wants to bring in the Bigtime Criminals perhaps to oversee the redistribution of any wealth that hasn't already been stolen from the Haitian people.
One other major figure has also been called on: That would be the traitor, former General Colin Powell. People might remember him as the man that sold the world on Weapons of Mass Destruction at the UN, which he knew to be nothing but a pack of lies. Once this was exposed to the world "the general" stayed on rather than do the honorable thing and just resign.
If this were a military operation then this tragedy beyond measure in Haiti would already have seen occupying troops in every open space where helicopters could be landing and taking off every few minutes. Off shore the Seabees and the Army Corp of Engineers would be massing to clear the rubble and re-build the necessary roads; working to reconnect communications, while providing food and medicine wherever needed. Hospital ships would be available for air-evacuations of the most critical patients and all of this would have been in place yesterday. As things stand the major nations are still lining up their talking heads and figuring out how to make Haiti pay for all this generosity that will never arrive!
If this had been a purely military operation the money needed would have been instantly available from the corrupt congress (and from the allied forces of "the willing" nations). All of this effort would have already been contracted out to siphon off as much of this largess as possible; but enough would be left over to at least have eased the pain and to have been successful in saving hundreds if not thousands of lives.
This entire disaster reeks of set-up; but however this "happened" the truth about so many nations will finally be seen in how the aftermath of this earthquake-in-Haiti is actually dealt with. Don't look to the UN or to very many of all those hundreds of privatized agencies-because these kinds of events are why most of those supposedly humanitarian organizations were formed in the first place: to drain the pockets of those that want to help (but only from a distance).
The world is so screwed up right now because this is yet another example of what actually happens when we "never look back" upon all the crimes that every "new" administration continues and usually amplifies upon, just as soon as they take over from the previous criminal-enterprise which of course they succeeded, in their own turn at the trough of draining the public's money to fill the already over-filled pockets for yet more private-profits; wherever that opportunity presents itself. Just yesterday three major credit card companies were caught capitalizing on credit-card transactions that were sent as relief funds which they saw as a major opportunity for unforeseen profits. The companies had to back down on what they thought of as a windfall of 5 to 7 percent profit created by a transaction swipe-fee: This should have been prosecuted as a crime, but once they agreed to reverse themselves (only because they got caught) the whole matter was dropped after a few critical lines on CNN.
Instead of helping anyone, the US media is just racing around holding hands with themselves to wail and morn the crisis; while adding to it with the duplicity of what they have never reported regarding every real crisis that this nation, or indeed any poor nation has ever had to face, anywhere on this planet.
Haiti and its blood-soaked history was raped and brutalized by the French and the Americans along with others because Haitiwas the first black slave-state to have successfully revolted and overthrown their so-called masters. The USA has since invaded and occupied that "poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere" way too often to ever be considered as a nation that cares at all-except of course as a place that invades to redistribute the wealth and the political power of Haiti, every few decades. The French were so helpful from the beginning that they held Haiti in financial bondage for a hundred years while they extorted reparations for the slaves that the French lost when the rebellion succeeded in freeing them. Anyone that thinks that slavery is dead, or that colonial nation-states are a thing of the past needs to read about Haiti in depth: because the history of that tiny Republic is riddled with the contradictions and lies that are still alive and well today.
However the truth is out there among all those security-protected-murders and sealed records, if anyone were brave enough to demand that the records of these 'disasters' be unsealed. But just as Rummy so famously said during the beginning of Shock & Awe in Baghdad "We don't do nation-building" ­ it could be said of this continuing fiasco 'we don't do humanitarian aid either.' The current world is all about private profits and the redistribution of wealth no matter the costs; so much so in fact that someone needs to dig a lot deeper into the causes of this supposed earthquake if any reality is ever to known about what really happened on that conflicted island.
This 'Disaster' will prove to be yet another example of the duplicity and lies that our continued silence has bought and paid for millions of times over just because too few care that they are being treated like a herd of cattle to be used and abused and then slaughtered for the mega-profits of their owners-worldwide!
