With announcement from John Bolton that US military will help deliver humanitarian aid to Guaido & Venezuela opposition, worth recalling this history: in 1980s, CIA arranged to deliver military equipment to Contra rebels in Nicaragua on planes designated for "humanitarian aid."
Who was involved in ordering planes to shuttle weapons to Contras in Central America? None other than Trump's special envoy to Venezuela, Elliott Abrams. We should be alert for same trickery with "humanitarian aid" to Guaido and opposition.
Rep. Omar questioning Elliott Abrams: "Would you support armed faction within Venezuela that engages in war crimes, crimes against humanity, or genocide if you believed they were serving U.S. interests as you did in Guatemala, El Salvador, & Nicaragua?” shadowproof.com/2019/02/13/ell…
Elliott Abrams threw tantrum over Omar's effort to hold him accountable. "I am not going to respond to that question. I’m sorry. I don’t think this entire line of questioning is meant to be real questions. And so I will not reply." shadowproof.com/2019/02/13/ell…
Rep. Castro also questioned Elliott Abrams: "In Nicaragua, you were involved in the effort to covertly provide lethal aid to the Contras against the will of Congress...So I ask you the question, can we trust your testimony today?" shadowproof.com/2019/02/13/ell…
