Leaked emails suggest shocking US mercenary plot in Bolivia

Kit Klarenberg
23rd October 2020

Bombshell leaked communications indicate scores of US military and intelligence veterans have been secretly recruited for wide-ranging covert action of an indeterminate nature in Bolivia.

The private correspondence, which has already been reported on by Morning Star, and which hasn’t yet been fully verified, doesn’t offer specific details of what’s to take place and when. However, it does make clear something significant, and highly sinister, is in the works in the country. And apparently has been for some time, with around 1,500 mercenaries signed on to contracts of up to seven months for the operation.

The deployment of these mercenaries was delayed by the elections being moved from 6 September to mid-October. This suggests that whatever’s to take place is intimately tied to the crunch vote. The vote itself has been precipitated by a US-backed coup in November 2019.

Upon declaring herself Morales’ replacement, senate vice president Jeanine Añez – who believes indigenous Bolivians to be “satanic” desert people, and “whose party received 4% of the vote share” in the October 2019 election – “expelled hundreds of Cuban doctors”, broke off “ties to Venezuela and pulled Bolivia out of multiple international and intercontinental organizations and treaties”. In September 2020, the Guardian reported that Human Rights Watch said Añez’s interim government was “abusing the justice system to wage a politically motivated witch-hunt” against Morales and his allies.

1. Not surprised

The US has sponsored this kind of shit as long as I can remember, and longer. Look up Nicaragua. Look up United Fruit and you will know where the term "banana republic" came from. This is just the latest offense. Nothing is new under the sun. Which does not make it right, of course.

2. Research has never occurred to most U.S. Americans, unfortunately!

Once anyone opens that door, starts discovering what has happened, he/she can never go back. It IS a life-altering experience, isn't it?

Thank you for your post, VA Jill.
