For the CIA, blood is not thicker than water (Did the CIA assassinate Eduardo Campos?) by Wayne Madsen

For the CIA, blood is not thicker than water
The CIA is relishing in the fact that its nemesis, President Dilma Rousseff, is on the political ropes following the very suspicious plane crash that took the life of Socialist Party presidential candidate Eduardo Campos. Campos was replaced on the ticket by the "Green-washed" George Soros-trained and -financed Marina Silva. Rousseff had a commanding lead in polls before the plane crash. Rousseff and Silva, a fundamentalist Pentecostal Christian and former Green Party presidential candidate, are running even at 34 percent each in the first round of elections, with conservative Social Democratic Party candidate Aecio Neves trailing at 15 percent. Neves has stated that should he finish third, he will throw his support behind Silva for the final round, which polls show Rousseff losing to Silva by 50 to 40 percent.

Neves's father, Tancredo Neves, was elected President of Brazil in 1985 as the candidate of the anti-military regime Brazilian Democratic Movement. Neves was to replace the military dictator João Baptista de Oliveira Figueiredo. However, shortly before he was to be sworn into office on March 15, 1985, Neves became ill with a severe abdominal problem. Rather than visiting foreign heads of state witnessing Neves being sworn in an president, that honor went to Neves's vice president-elect Jose Sarney, who lacked the long experience and charisma of Neves. While Neves was recovering from illness, reported to have been diverticulitis, the president-elect died. Sarney became the permanent president and the United States no longer had to worry about Neves's promise to launch an "independent" foreign policy and reduce the high American profile in the Brazilian economy. That sort of talk worried Wall Street and the CIA as described in an item from April 1985 recovered from the CIA archives. The CIA, according to a confidential newsletter called "Early Warning," which largely reflected CIA opinion, was worried that Neves would dismantle Brazil's military intelligence service, the Serviço Nacional de Informanções (SNI), an ally of the CIA in repressing the Brazilian left. The CIA was also concerned that the Soviet KGB would make inroads in Brazil during a Neves presidency.

Tancredo Neves [left] worried the CIA to the degree they assassinated him by poison ushering in the non-threatening presidency of his vice president, Jose Sarney. Aecio Neves [right], Tancredo's son, is prepared to support the vice presidential-turned-presidential candidate of the globalists, Marina Silva, who ascended to the top job as a result of a suspected CIA assassination of Eduardo Campos. The target now is President Dilma Rousseff and in 1985 it was Tancredo Neves. For the CIA, lightning does strike twice in Brazil by manipulating VP candidates into office through political assassination.

All that changed when Neves suspiciously died after his aborted inauguration. The CIA ensured that Neves, who was the political heir to João Goulart, overthrown by the CIA in a 1964 coup, would not appoint like-minded progressives to government positions. That would not come until the president of left-wing President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva in 2003. Rousseff is Lula's designated political heir.

Rather than see the plane crash death of Campos as just another in a series of CIA elimination of Brazilian leaders who threaten U.S. hegemony over the hemisphere, Aecio Neves, whose own father may have fallen victim to CIA poisoning, stands ready to propel Silva, someone with the familiar Soros pedigree of "civil society" championing and foreign "donor" funding, into the presidency of Brazil. Such an occurrence would drive a stake deep into the heart of the BRICS alliance and its new development bank, as well as sound the klaxon for a resumption of U.S. domination of Latin America through puppet leaders approved by Wall Street.

It is a familiar story for the CIA, which has promoted the off-spring of leaders it suppressed, overthrew, and even assassinated in return for Faustian deals with the U.S. military-intelligence-financial complex. Other examples are the austerity-supporting George Papandreou of Greece who was nothing like his father, the anti-NATO leftist Andreas Papandreou, imprisoned after the CIA Greek coup in 1967, and Martin Torrijos, the pro-U.S. former president of Panama and the son of the Panamanian nationalist leader Omar Torrijos, killed in a CIA-engineered plane crash in 1981. For the CIA, Latin America is seen as a continent where blood is not thicker than water, as witnessed most recently by the opportunism of Aecio Neves.

The CIA archived article also expresses the CIA's angst over Soviet understanding that the agency's greatest reservoir of support in Brazil came from the "estimated 15,000 retired army officers . . . currently employed in state-owned companies." In other countries, including Venezuela and Mexico, the CIA has always viewed retired and often, U.S.-trained, military officers serving in para-statal companies as a recruiting ground for fifth columnists. A number of retired military CIA coup plotters were successfully recruited from Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), the COMIBOL tin mining company of Bolivia, CENTROMIN copper company in Peru, and Petrobras in Brazil.

Note: WMR's coverage of the suspicious nature of the plane crash that killed Campos is receiving wide coverage in the Brazilian media and we have received a number of messages from Brazilian journalists and bloggers thanking us for our reports on the circumstances surrounding the plane crash that has tipped the Brazilian presidential election on its head.
