FTR #131 The Loot of the Argentine Holocaust

One seg­ment

Trac­ing the evo­lu­tion of Latin Amer­i­can fas­cism from the roots plant­ed at the end of World War II (see FTR-130), this broad­cast high­lights a dis­turb­ing method­olog­i­cal sim­i­lar­i­ty between the Argen­tine fas­cists of the 1970s and 80s and their Third Reich prog­en­i­tors: the loot­ing of the pos­ses­sions of their vic­tims and uti­liza­tion of the pro­ceeds to finance oper­a­tions. Focus­ing on the activ­i­ties of Argen­tine fas­cist and secu­ri­ty oper­a­tive Raul Gugliemenet­ti, the broad­cast sets forth the appro­pri­a­tion of the prop­er­ty of vic­tims of Argenti­na’s “Dirty War” in the 1970s and 80s and the secret­ing of the loot in the secret Swiss bank accounts held by offi­cers who direct­ed the war. These monies, as well as funds derived from the Boli­vian cocaine trade, were used to fund Argen­tine-direct­ed fas­cist ter­ror activ­i­ties through­out Latin Amer­i­ca, includ­ing the over­throw of the demo­c­ra­t­i­cal­ly elect­ed Boli­vian gov­ern­ment in the “Cocaine Coup” of 1980 and the CIA assist­ed Con­tra War as well. The Boli­vian Coup involved the coop­er­a­tion of for­mer Gestapo and CIA oper­a­tive Klaus Bar­bie and his squad of “Coca-Fascisti”. (Record­ed in Feb­ru­ary of 1999.)
